The California State Athletic Commission granted FEG, K-1’s parent company, a temporary promotional license earlier today. What does that mean? Contrary to rumors that the show was on the brink of being cancelled, K-1 Dynamite!! USA will be held as scheduled…
California State Athletic Commision’s newly minted Executive Director, Armando Garcia, released word that Fighting Entertainment Group (FEG) had been granted a temporary promoter’s license.
As the parent company of the K-1 organization, FEG’s license ensures that the June 2nd event, held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, will take place without interference from the CSAC. Though the card has been dealt several blows, including the denial of a fight license to co-main event fighter Hong Man-Choi, the American and Japanese wings of the promotion are undoubtedly breathing easier.
CSAC executive director Armando Garcia commented on Kazushi Sakuraba and the status of his participation in the event. Garcia stated that Sakuraba is still required to undergo an additional slew of tests from doctors and the final decision on whether or not he will be able to fight won’t be made until sometime next week.
