First ever “K-1 Open India Championship 2014” was organized at the YAS Boxing Stadium, Khuman Lampak Sports Complex, Imphal from February 3 to 4, 2014. It was organized by K-1 Manipur Unit under the sanctioning of the K-1 Federation of India (K-1FI).
Mention may be made that history has been created when K-1 Federation of India (K-1FI) was formally established in 2013. K-1FI was recognized by the World Amateur K-1 Federation (WAK-1F), World Headquarters, Lithuania.
It all began with a very cordial and smooth journey and a lot of encouragements started pouring in for the promotion and development of K-1 not only in India and also in other parts of South Asian Nations under the banner of the K-1FI and K-1SA.
The “First Ever K-1 Open India Championship 2014” finally turned out to be “historic, memorable and unique.” The Judging and Refereeing were superb and there were many serious fighters for the first time in the history of the “K-1” in India. History has been created in India from Imphal.
