書かれた Jens Habermann

The Fight Entertainment Group (FEG) subscribed a deal on June 26th with the Kyoei Boxing Gym with the aim of obtaining more talents for their K-1 and Hero's shows.

Therefore the Kyoei Promotion Inc. will watch out for new talents to train them for K-1. Beside a gym in Tokyo Kyoei is mainly represented in St. Petersburg and Bishkek.

MMA and Boxen are greatly popular in the Russian-speaking part of the world and with the arriving of more and more fighters from that region a sponsorship seems to be promising.
