K1 GP Final
vendredi, 07 décembre 2007
Jerome Le Banner fought last Saturday at the 2007 K-1 GP Final. He won a clear decision against the Korean giant Choi (2m18 /7'2 , 167 kg/370 lbs) and fought a very good first round against the K-1 champion Semmy Schilt (2m11 /6'9, 135 kg/298 lbs) who eventually went on to win it for his third year straight. Unfortunately, he suffered an injury to the right knee and the corner had to throw in the towel during the 2nd round. Jerome wanted to continue fighting but his corner had to put his health first.


For your information, Jerome had surgery on his ACL and meniscus on his right knee just 8 months ago, so it’s a miracle that he fought and won in September and was able to qualify for the GP final. Also, fighting at this GP final was a big challenge... Usually, for this kind of surgery, professional athletes have to wait 6 months before they can start training and 9 months for competition!!! This time the injury is a smaller one and Jerome will be able to resume training very soon.
 
All the K-1 fighters and trainers were impressed by Jerome's comeback and performance. The fans voted on the K-1 official site and Jerome won the 2 awards available! His quarter final versus Choi was awarded as the best fight of the tournament and Jerome as the MVP! Here are the results:

Best Bout

1. Jerome Le Banner vs Choi 26.7%
2. Hari vs Remy 22.7%
3. Semmy vs Glaube 13.3%
4. Aerts vs Remy 9.6%
5. Aerts vs Junichi 9%


MVP

1. Jerome Le Banner 31%
2. Aerts 29.7%
3. Semmy 12.8%
4. Glaube 8.8%
5. Remy 3.6% equal with Hari 3.6%
 
We are glad to show you the fan's love for Jerome, our sponsors will always have the best exposition in K1, simply because Jerome is always the fan's favorite. As you probably know K1 is broadcasted in 150 countries so the audience is very big.

 

 
Le Banner victorious !
jeudi, 25 octobre 2007

Jerome got a 1st round KO victory against the korean fighter Park.

He’s now qualified for the K1 World Grand Prix Final, December 8.

This fight wasnt an easy one because of Jerome’s recent knee surgery. His surgeon didnt  allow him to throw kicks. Today, Jerome can use his knee again and for the GP final, his knee will be at 100%!
