LiverKick Podcast July 28, 2018 – GLORY 55 Recap, Kunlun 70kg Tournament, ONE Championship and More

Finally, the long awaited LiverKick Podcast featuring myself, Dave Walsh and Jay Jauncey. We run through the events of GLORY 55 New York, including Alex Pereira’s incredible overhand right knockout and why that is Jay’s favorite strike to use, teach to fighters and watch happen. On top of that we talk about the upcoming Kunlun Fight 70kg tournament, with the final 16 (they call it the “1/8,” but hey) that is coming up in August. On top of that we talk about some of what ONE Championship has been doing with their Super Series kickboxing and muay thai bouts, which [read more]

LiverKick Podcast May 16, 2018: ONE Super Series, GLORY 53, Kunlun 74 and More

Jay Jauncey and Dave Walsh are back after, well, quite an extended podcastcation, to bring those of you that have been patiently waiting for the LiverKick Podcast yet another episode. This time we cover the most recent GLORY show, GLORY 53, while previewing GLORY 54 a bit as well. We also talk about the ONE Super Series events that have happened, including the absolutely awesome Maslobojev vs. Plazibat fight from last week and the fights coming up on Friday. On top of that there’s Kunlun Fight 74, including Big Boss Kyshenko and a new champion being crowned. We also talk [read more]

LiverKick Podcast January 14th, 2018: GLORY: Redemption, Kunlun Finals and More

Alright, so the last episode was garbled up by audio problems galore, then the holidays happened, Jay went on vacation and finally, here we are, a month later, with a new episode of the LiverKick Podcast. But, of course, this time we try to make up for it by going over GLORY: Redemption, talking about some of the other big stories that have happened in the last month or so, like Badr Hari’s GLORY signing and more. We also brush upon K-1 Japan happenings, just how big of a star is Tenshin Nasukawa compared to Takeru and the upcoming Kunlun [read more]

LiverKick Podcast October 16, 2017: GLORY 45 and 46 Extravaganza

With GLORY pumping out big events in rapid-succession we decided to hold off on covering GLORY 45 via podcast until GLORY 46 happened to give everyone a one-two-punch. Plus Jay may have been sick and without much of a voice for a week. Maybe. Anyway, a lot has been going on in the world of kickboxing, from Sitthichai’s WLF tournament win to challenge Yi Long, a new Enfusion Heavyweight Champion and of course the two big GLORY events. That left us with a lot to talk about, although we tried to not go on too long. Because while I’m sure [read more]

LiverKick Podcast July 24th — GLORY 43 Post-Show and Rankings Update

GLORY 43 has been in the books for a while, so yeah, this might be a bit late, but Jay was in New York until mid-week, so here we are. This is the somewhat late, still relevant LiverKick podcast recapping GLORY 43 and talking about the kind of crazy stuff that we always talk about. At the tail end of the show we decided to do something a bit crazy, too. We used our time to update the LiverKick Rankings (which I haven’t actually updated on the site just yet) and we decided to go over those changes in the [read more]

LiverKick Podcast June 15, 2017 – GLORY 42 Post Show, K-1 Japan Preview and More

That’s right we’re back with another edition of the LiverKick Podcast. This time we follow-up on what was GLORY 42, give a quick rundown of the upcoming KNOCKOUT card in Japan and preview what looks like another really awesome K-1 World Grand Prix in Japan event that is happening this weekend. Some of the topics include how GLORY got perhaps some of the best press in years with the post-fight shenanigans in the Murthel Groenhart/Harut Grigorian fight, but is that really good press for the company? Also, didn’t the Mayweather/McGregor announcement just completely eclipse all of that? Also Nieky Holzken’s [read more]

LiverKick Podcast May 22 — GLORY 41 Post-Show

Somewhere in this transition the LiverKick Podcast became a victim of transitioning. Hopefully once everything is copacetic again we won’t have to worry about that, but alas, for now it is. Regardless, this is the “lost episode” that was posted on May 22nd where Jay Jauncey and Dave Walsh run down everything that happened at GLORY 41 and talk about a lot of other stuff. This one is worth the listen. The new iTunes links is here, so re-subscribe.

LiverKick Podcast for April 20th – GLORY 40 Preview, Bellator Kickboxing and More

With GLORY 40 just on the horizon and Bellator Kickboxing coming off of two big shows it felt like the right time for the SS LiverKick Podcast to set sail again. This time we got it done more than a day before the show we were previewing, truly a herculean feat if there ever was one. So join myself and Jay Jauncey as we run down the GLORY 40 card, spend less time complaining about four-men tournaments than we’ve ever done before and perhaps even get some insight into what went into Josh Jauncey’s preparation for his upcoming fight seeing [read more]

LiverKick Podcast March 24 – GLORY 39 Preview, K-1 Japan Talk and More

GLORY 39 is this weekend, on Saturday even, which for you dearest readers (and listeners) is but a solitary day away. That means that both Jay Jauncey and myself have returned to talk about the upcoming GLORY event as well as opine about those glory (no pun intended) days of Japanese kickboxing. The LiverKick Podcast’s revival revival has a fourth episode, folks. K-1 Japan just held arguably the card of the year thus far, are planning a killer 70kg tournament, Kunlun still exists and is doing stuff, Enfusion just had a card and a lot more. We also discuss the [read more]

LiverKick Podcast Feb. 21 2017 – GLORY 38, Enfusion 46 and W5 KITEK

Don’t tell me that we weren’t gonna do this again, because it’s the third episode of this iteration of the LiverKick podcast. This time out Jay and myself get to talking about the latest in the kickboxing world, including Enfusion Live 46 featuring Jaraya vs. Ben Moh II, Bulaid vs. Zouggary and more. We also talk about W5’s KITEK show, which included Giorgio Petrosyan taking home another world title and where he goes from there. Then, to cap it off, we look at this week’s upcoming GLORY 38 event and how GLORY is announcing cards way in advance. (Backdating for [read more]
