K-1 loves Akebono and apparently he will be fighting once again for New Years Eve on the K-1 Dynamite card. Nigeria’s Bobby Ologun, who has worked on Japanese TV and who also scored a surprise victory over Cyril Abidi in the 2004 K-1 Dynamite New Year Eve’s show faces a new challenge and a much bigger challenge in sumo champion Akebono.

K-1, had a press conference in Japan and confirmed the fight will take place. The match is under MMA rules for the 2005 New Year’s Eve show which will highlight Japanese superstar Kid Yamamoto facing Genki Sudo, while Royce Gracie will take on judo champion Yoshihiro Akiyama.
