K-1 Global announced the signing of David Calvo (35-4) and Miodrag Olar (24-10) to long-term contracts with the organisation. Both Calvo and Olar are fighting in this weekend’s K-1 World MAX 2013 Final 16 event in Mallorca, Spain.
David Calvo, who won the K-1 70kg Tournament in Portugal back in April, will facing Muay Thai star and two-time K-1 World MAX champion Buakaw Banchamek (209-21) in the Final 16. It is fair to say Calvo will be the underdog in this fight by a fair margin.
Miodrag Olar, recently defeated Alexandros Chatzichronoglu at SuperKombat VIP Edition on the 31st Augutst. Olar fights between 70kg up to 80kg, but is better suited to 70kg due to his size. Olar will be facing Maximo Suarez in the Final 16.
