The match-ups for the Top King World Series Final 8, which will take place in Hong Kong on December 20th at the AsiaWorld-Expo, have been announced. This will be a tough quarterfinal round for all athletes as the pool will include strong competition with Buakaw Banchamek vs. Dmytro Konstantynov and Andrei Kulebin vs. Khayal Dzhaniev will make up one side of the tournament bracket, and the other side featuring Niclas Larsen vs. Marat Grigorian and Reece McAllister vs. Marcin Parcheta.
WMC Champion Buakaw, one of the favourites in this tournament, will have his work cut out for him as 7 other hungry, talented warriors are also eyeing the coveted championship trophy and prize. Niclas Larsen defeated Vladamir Konsky in their quarterfinal fight and is definitely a dark horse to watch for in this tournament.
