By Michael Afromowitz – muaythaimes@aol.com

K-1 will make its highly anticipated return to Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, April 30th during "Battle At The Bellagio II." The Bellagio Hotel and Casino-hosted event will air live on IN Demand, DIRECTV, Dish Network, and TVN Pay-Per-View television.

"Battle At The Bellagio II," which will be headlined by the sport’s typical eight-man, single-elimination tournament as well as several single "Superfights" between top rated martial arts combatants, will be staged inside The Bellagio’s 6,000 crowd capacity arena. Last August, tickets for "Battle At The Bellagio I," held in the same venue, were sold out.

The April 30th lineup has yet to be announced, but is expected to gradually take shape over the course of the next several weeks. Amongst the K-1 veterans who have already been listed as possible "Battle At The Bellagio II" participants are 2003 K-1 USA champion Carter Williams, two-time K-1 tournament champion Michael McDonald, two-time world kickboxing champion Dewey "The Black Kobra" Cooper, and Superfight veteran sensation Cung Le. Former heavyweight boxing championship challenger, Shannon Briggs, as well as former International Boxing Federation (IBF) world heavyweight champion, Francois Botha, have been named as candidates to make their North American K-1 debuts.

Tickets for K-1 "Battle At The Bellagio II" are now available for purchase on the K-1 USA website (www.k-1usa.net) store. They are priced at $50, $100, $150, and $250, respectively.
