On Sunday, March 28, the K-1 group hosted K-1 World GP 2020 Japan K’Festa.4 Day.2 from the Nippon Budokan in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan.

In the night’s main event, one of the world’s top-ranked fighters, Takeru, defended his 60-kilogram title against Krush champion Leona Pettas.

The co-main event was also for a title as cruiserweight champion K-Jee put his belt on the line against the man he defeated to earn it, Sina Karimian. The two had split their two prior meetings.
