The former K-1 champion Nicholas Pettas is preparing a premier for “ITADAKIMASHI” on national TV for October 16th with his wife Angela in Japan. The kickboxing legend shared the news with Boec.
In the past week his YouTube channel passed the 50 000 subscribers milestone and that is what gave him the confidence to seek representation on mainstream media.
Pettas gained exceptional popularity in Bulgaria with his work for the international combat sports organization SENSHI. Often he anchors seminars in Kyokushin and kickboxing on the regular camps and at the 17th edition of the gala in Varna he was the presenter in the center of the ring.
The 50 years old sports giant made his name in the 1990s and 2000s when he became the European Kyokushin champion in 1995. The same year he finished 5th at the World Open Karate Tournament. Other milestones with the kimono for him are the bronze medal from the World Weight Category Championship in 1997, in 1999 he doubled his success at the World Open Karate Tournament, and in the year 2000 he won the Shin Karate World Championship.
Later Nicholas Pettas transitioned to kickboxing and his best year wore between 2000-2002 when hi gain success at K-1 Japan Grand Prix, Bushido Europe, K-1 Survival, K-1 Burning, K-1 World Grand Prix, K-1 Andy Memorial, K-1 Gladiators, K-1 World Grand Prix in Fukuoka, K-1 World Grand Prix in Nagoya and K-1 Dream.
It maybe more that 20 year from those days it doesn’t matter because he proved him self worthy for his name when on his wedding reception in 2022 he managed to break six blocks of ice with his bare hand.
