K-1 “battle At Bellagio Iii:” The Weigh-ins
K-1 "Battle at Bellagio III:" The Weigh-Ins
By Michael Afromowitz
On the eve of the second Las Vegas Pay-Per-View televised K-1 event of 2004, the theme was slim and trim as the majority of the competitors looked admirably fit when they stepped on the official weigh-in scale.
Without question, the most surprising number posted on the scale was that by 2000 K-1 World Grand Prix Finals runner-up, Ray Sefo. At a slender 228 pounds, the 5 foot 11 inch fighter came in approximately 30 pounds lighter than he did for last December’s Tokyo Dome tournament. Sefo has attributed the considerable weight difference to a previous illness that caused him to blow up immediately prior to the December playoff. Recently, he has also reiterated his renewed commitment to securing his first major K-1 championship.
Below is a breakdown of the official "Battle at Bellagio III" fighter weights that were recorded earlier today. The fighters are paired according to their respective matchups:
Carter Williams – 242 lbs.
Jorgen Kruth – 230 lbs.
Jan Nortje – 323 lbs.

Alex Jucan – 245 lbs.
Marvin Eastman – 214 lbs.
Rick Roufus – 217 lbs.
Dewey Cooper – 202 lbs.
