Jordann Pikeur was the runner up in the 2015 70kg K-1 World Grand Prix, having lost the final by round one TKO to the Grand Prix winner, Marat Grigorian. Back then in 2015, Pikeur had beaten former Yokkao champion, Sanny Dhalbeck in the semi-finals by way of a second round TKO. Pikeur spoke to K1Anoop after GLORY 42 Paris about his year so far and his “unfinished business with the K-1”.
Both Dhalbeck and Pikeur return to Japan this year for the 2017 70 K-1 World GP on June 18 at the Saitama Super Arena, Japan.
