“Mayhem at the Mirage II” will provide the opportunity to witness Imani Lee demonstrate his prize winning fighting ability in a super fight segment of the K-1 event at the Mirage Hotel.

On April 29, 2006, Imani Lee's participation in a K-1 event will be only his second bout in the classification. In August 2005 ,Imani Lee, then a newcomer to K-1, delivered a win by unanimous decision when he defeated the veteran, Jan "The Giant" Nortje. Nortje, a South African standing 6 feet 10 inches, went three rounds with Lee. However, during the last two rounds he suffered several scoring punches and kicks from Lee, which put Nortje out of contention. Imani Lee's skill and speed won out against Nortje and showed his ability to be a future K-1 contender.

The spectators on April 29th will see a newly honed physic on Lee with more developed muscle mass. Since August, Imani's training has been re-worked by his principal trainers, Eddy Millis of Shark Tank fame, and Jaime Fletcher of Rebel Sports. Lee has an even stronger and greater kick range than his first fight. He notes that there is a 50% improvement in his kicking ability. Imani's training has included more emphasis on martial arts, which coupled with his freight-train punch, makes him a complete fighting powerhouse. Additionally, he has increased the weight training of his upper body, resulting in an even stronger and more cut appearance than August 2005. Imani has also restructured his diet adding more protein and nutrients in the form of fruits and vegetables.

Lee, who came from a traditional boxing back ground, is still considered a rookie in the K-1 arena. He will prove on April 29th to be an even more imposing contender.

Imani Lee's opponent on April 29th will be Patrick Barry who defeated Mark Selbee in a super fight in last August's event.

In Imani's corner will be Eddy Millis (Shark Tank), Jaime Fletcher (Rebel Sports), and his manager Mike Hazard.
