American attorney Michael Connette, who is based out of Tokyo and has experience practicing law in California, sent a press release to the fight media on Monday claiming of inaccuracies in statements made by K-1 matchmaker Sadaharu Tanigawa last week. Tanigawa issued a public reply to a FAX that Bob Sapp sent through a Japanese lawyer. In Tanigawa’s statement, he mentioned how Mr. M (referring to Connette) was advising Bob Sapp in regards to demanding an annulment of his K-1 contract, labeling Connette as a DSE American lawyer.

The main point in Connette’s statement about Sapp and K-1 is that Sapp’s original contract was with K-1 and not with Tanigawa’s FEG company. Connette finished his statement by saying that he hoped a resolution between Sapp and K-1 would develop quickly.
