Sean O’Haire is no stranger to the world of entertainment. He is a seasoned veteran of the professional wrestling world. As a former WWE and WCW Tag Team Champion, O’Haire has wowed audiences with his remarkable agility for a man of his size as well as his charisma. At 6 foot 6, and 270 pounds, and with these attributes, it is no wonder Sean O’Haire is a rising star in the world of kickboxing.
April 30, 2005 will mark a very important date in the life of Sean O’Haire, as well as the kickboxing world. The Battle at Bellagio IV, presented by K-1 USA takes place in Las Vegas, and this could be the day O’Haire dominates the competition to become the Battle at Bellagio Tournament Champion. Doing so would establish O’Haire as one of the top fighters in the world. However, this will not be an easy task, as Battle at Bellagio III champion, and fellow Valor fighter, Mighty Mou returns to defend his title. “I don’t expect this to be easy, I don’t want it to be easy. My whole life, I have thrived on competition, and this is no different. I want everyone else to be at their best, so I know I am the best when I beat them.”
O’Haire, although new to competing in the MMA and kickboxing, has been training in martial arts for over 22 years! He has trained himself in several fighting styles such as Muay Thai, Kung Fu, Seshifen-ki Karate, and submission grappling. O’Haire has used these impressive tools to obliterate Shungo Oyama at Rumble on The Rock in Hawaii (2004) in 31 seconds with a KO. Sean also submitted Tony Roberts in only 1:11 at Venom Fighting in Long Beach (2004).
O’Haire understands the level of competition for this event as well. “Gary Goodridge will be a tough fight, I know that going in. I have studied him and am ready to have a great fight. When I advance, I have a very tough draw, and anyone would be foolish not to see this. Carter Williams and Michael McDonald are two of the best at kickboxing, and are legitimate threats to win the Battle at Bellagio IV.”
“As a representative of Valor fighting, I will give it everything I have. We have such a strong fan base, and I will not let them down, nor will I let myself down. With a very tough draw it will not be easy, but that is just a testament to the great fighters in this tournament. There is such talent here, that is why I love competing for K-1, they bring the best to the table.” O’Haire is definitely focused on the task at hand. His training has gone very well. “Things are going better than expected. I feel great, and on April 30, 2005, at the K-1 Battle at Bellagio IV, I will enter at 100% and leave the New Battle at Bellagio Champion.”
Well, judging by O’Haire’s feelings about April 30, 2005, it will make for an interesting night. One thing is for sure, Sean will make an impact in less than 30 days, at K-1’s Battle at Bellagio IV, live in Las Vegas, and available on Pay-Per-View.
