Referee Kakuda Suspended! 3 Months
K-1 referee Nobuaki Kakuda was on the 11th suspended from refereeing for 90 days. Which means that he won’t referee at the K-1 Finals or on NYE.
The reason for the suspension is the Takeda vs. Kraus K-1 MAX fight, in which the K-1 rules director thought Kakuda didn’t do a good job between thinking of the fighters damage and the fight being on primetime TV.
