Report: K-1 interested in Kimbo/Petruzelli re-match on NYE
Posted 4:23 pm, 10/29/2008
Sharon Robb in The South Florida Sun-Sentinel has a report featuring comments from Richie Guerriero of the American Top Team in regards to Elite XC closing up shop. However, the biggest note from Robb’s article is this:
Slice, who spent Thursday at one of his children’s school career day, is weighing his options with his agent Mike Imber. He may fight on the DREAM K-1 New Year’s Eve show in Japan, possibly a rematch with Petruzelli.
If you recall, Petruzelli was telling Orlando media after his fight with Kimbo Slice that he had received an offer to fight in Japan.
As far as Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli having any drawing power in Japan… you could dip Seth Petruzelli in glue, drag him through Fort Knox, and he wouldn’t draw a single dollar. Kimbo, on the other hand, could draw very well in Japan. However, putting him in a re-match against Petruzelli is a stupid idea… unless, of course, K-1 paid off Petruzelli to take a dive in the fight. Why not.
