RoK Super 70:
4-Men Elimination Tournament
Last year ROK did two 4-men tournaments. One in 63,5 kg in which Hamza Bougamza was crowned the winner, and the other in Super Heavyweight (Open weight +96,2 kg) won by Simon Ogolla.
This year, the 4-men tournament will be organized in the 70 kg division (or -69,9 kg/154 lbs also called Junior Middle weight).
The first two semi finals of the tournament will go under so called Modified Muaythai Rules or what in some European or Asian countries is known as K-1 rules. That means that no elbow strikes will be permitted.
The tournament final, which takes place approximately one hour after the second semi-final, will go under full Muaythai Rules allowing Elbow strikes.
The rounds will be 3 x 3 minutes. 1 extra round can be given if the fight is scored to a Draw after 3 rounds. In that case, the extra round will be the only round scored after which a winner will be announced.
Usage of Clinch is limited to only when very active and dangerous. This applies to all RoK fights.
