Monday’s World MAX tournament show in Tokyo at Ryogoku Kokugikan that aired on Tokyo Broadcasting System from 9 PM to 10:54 PM JST drew an all-time record low TV rating of 7.6%. The one fight that drew a rating on the show was Satoshi Ishii vs. Katsuyori Shibata, which drew a 12.1% rating. K-1 front man Sadaharu Tanigawa said that ‘the absence of a new star’ is what has led to K-1 drawing low ratings.
