Hurricane Fight 2014 - A Night of Fireworks

  • Published in Europe

The Hungarian Kickboxing Association has recently adopted a fresh view on organizing events and set up a format slightly different from what we could call traditional. The focus has shifted towards actively building a fan base, involving civil supporters, investors and emphasizing and embracing media relations a bit more than before. According to the plans they’ll hold 10 events like Hurricane this year at smaller venues where they can produce high quality shows with top fighters. Also they managed to sign a deal with a sport channel so that the event will air on numerous occasions. A big thing for fans who couldn’t make it. The night have seen 11 fights with top fighters from Hungary, Austria and Germany.

Slavisa Miodrag - Zoltán Nardelotti (right)

In 75kg (~165lbs) 17 years old Zoltán Nardelotti made a short work of Slavisa Miodrag and knocked him out with a knee to the body which he followed up with a beautiful right hook to the chin. Despite his young age he’s not new to the big stages at all – he was WAKO K1 National Champ twice, IFMA National Champ, came in at 2nd place at the European Championship under K1 rules but found success under other rulesets too.

Kristóf Fábián (left) - Raimund Müller

Another impressive showing was the 71kg (~156lbs) K1 fight between two times Austrian Champ Raimund Müller and Hungary’s 21 years old Kristóf Fábián. Kristóf has started training in 2011 and under four years he has managed to accomplish an impressive record under the tutelage of coach Zoltán Láng. Currently he sits at the 3rd place of the WAKO K1 adult rankings, while he’s #1 at the low kick category.

Round one has started with low kicks, inside leg kicks and Kristóf has managed to force his opponent to the ropes. He was more aggressive, moving forward and landing more. At the end of the first he sent Müller to the canvas with a left hook but he managed to get up and survive the count. Starting from the 2nd round you could see Kristóf being more relaxed, throwing a bit more, coming in with flying knees, using straight punches combined with hooks to the body. It was a dominant showing of skills, determination that left no question on the scorecards and Kristóf won a UD.

Marc Rabl - Róbert Géczei (right)

Next up was Róbert Géczei and Marc Rabl’s meeting at 67kg (~147lbs). Róbert started training in 2009 and amongst many other things he has won a Muay Thai and a full-contact National Championship. Rabl arrived as an IFMA Muay Thai champ (2014), two times Austrian Muay Thai champ and came to win for sure. They started a really intense back and forth and Róbert was coming forward with explosive low kicks, straight punches and with scary left hooks that seemed to miss not by many inches. Rabl tried to answer the attacks and take over controlling the tempo but Róbert was utilizing his jab, right straights, tried to sweep the legs and managed to get Rabl to the ropes. And then the left hook mentioned earlier has landed and Rabl’s lights went out. Apart from being very explosive it has to be clear now to everyone that Róbert Géczei has scary power in his left. It was a beautiful knockout to end the night’s K1 fights.

Anita Horváth (left) - Lilla Kuti

The night has also seen women fighting as Anita Horváth and Lilla Kuti clashed in 56kg (~123lbs) under K1 rules. Anita has managed to knock her opponent down in both the 1st and the 2nd round and stayed dominant through the bout which she won via UD.

Christin Fiedler - Bianka Balajti (right)

Also Bianka Balajti from Hungary met Austria’s Christin Fiedler at the same weight (56kg). Based on the tale of the tape Fiedler came in with an advantage – 7x Austrian Champ, IFMA 2012/2013 World Champ, WAKO 2013 World Champ and we could go on. She has a total of 47 fights and experience in K1, Muay Thai, full-contact kickboxing and boxing. On the other hand while Bianka is only 17 the 3 years of extremely hard work she put in with coaches Tamás Birics and György Rehák has paid off very well. She’s progressing by leaps and bounds. In 2014 she became WAKO junior K1 National Champ, won the IFMA Muay Thai National Championship and a Low-kick World Cup.

It was obvious from the very beginning that Bianka was more aggressive and seemed to be more hungry for the W as well. She was dominant throughout the whole bout and Fiedler really seemed surprised and a bit lost too. Bianka was controlling the pace, tempo and only seemed to miss clinching which wasn’t allowed. She won all three rounds and got the win via UD.

It was an impressive night of fights and maybe the beginning of something that can give hope to the fans of kickboxing in Hungary.

Dževad Poturak's Brutal KO Over Abderahman Coulibaly

  • Published in Europe

Dževad Poturak came out of retirement this past weekend to win a WAKO Pro World Low Kick Championship in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina on the event No Limit 7. He knocked out Abdarhmane Coulibaly from France with a vicious overhand right once again showing us the power he has in his right hand.

Poturak retired last year after an exhibition bout with Mamoudou Keta at No Limit 1. He was on a three fight losing streak but it only took 8 months for the sport to pull him back in and I'm sure after this knockout he will be fighting again in the near future. Poturak landed a perfectly timed overhand right on Coulibaly's chin in the second round which caused his legs to go stiff as a board and just fall straight backwards. These type of knockouts are always very scary but the fans love them and this video has been getting a lot of attention.

Buakaw Banchamek Vs Abdoul Touré Video

  • Published in Asia

Here is the video from Buakaw's fight (if you can call it that) against Abdoul Touré from August 15th in Chiang Rai, Thailand for a WBC Muay Thai Diamond Championship. This is the second time these two have fought, the first time it wasn't a fairly matched fight and Buakaw won by KO with a body kick. Surprise surprise this fight was not much different and consisted of Buakaw repeatedly knocking down his french opponent with head kicks and elbows until the referee eventually stopped it. There is no doubt Buakaw looks like a beast as usual, but I was asking myself if this was even a fight, or was it fake. I really would like to see Buakaw against some opponents his level, as much as I enjoy a good Buakaw domination this was just too unfair for me, not to mention he didn't even look like he was trying.

Yokkao 6: Thongchai Sitsongpeenong vs Toby Smith Video

  • Published in Asia

Yokkao has just released this fight between Thongchai Sitsongpeenong and Toby Smith from January 3rd of this year. I personally had not seen much of the Australian Toby Smith before I watched him look unstoppable against John Wayne Parr in June. He is a strong fighter that likes to walk his opponents down and land huge elbows, clinch up and smother while he knees them. Against Thongchai this strategy did not work quite as planned. Thongchai is only 17 years old in this fight and he already fights like a crafty Thai veteran by making Smith miss and keeping him off balance for most of the first two rounds. When Toby fought JWP he looked so strong that he couldn't even be moved backwards, but Thongchai had him moving back easily, I can't help but be very impressed with this 17 year old Thai.

The last round of this fight is just crazy, let us know what you think of the outcome of the fight, I found it a little surprising.

Weekend Results: IFC in Spain; or, Melvin Manhoef's Bad Night

  • Published in Europe

International Fighting Championship hosted their inaugural event this past Friday, July 25th from the Pavello Olympic arena in Badalona, Spain. The card featured a combination of Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA bouts. All MMA bouts were fought for 3x5 minutes whereas the Kickboxing and the single Muay Thai bout was contested for 3x3 minutes. 

Combat sports legend Melvin Manhoef headlined the card and was stopped with strikes by hometown favorite Cesar Cordoba in just under three minutes. Cordoba came into the bout six-inches taller than his foe and looked to make good use of his reach advantage early, keeping Manhoef on the end of his punches and kicks whilst avoiding the occasional hellacious flurry from the Dutchman. Midway through the first round Cordoba landed a right high-kick and subsequently swarmed Manhoef with punches against the ropes before sending him crashing to the canvas face-first with a knee, rendering Manhoef momentarily unconscious. Instead of halting the bout, the referee began the 10 count that Manhoef impressively survived, only for the bout to be stopped somewhat controversially moments later. As Cordoba continued his onslaught of punches and knees the referee intervened with Manhoef still standing, which lead to a rather angry protest from Manhoef.

198lbs Kickboxing: Cesar Cordoba def. Melvin Manhoef by TKO (Punches) in Round 1
156lbs Kickboxing: David Calvo def. Juanma Chacon by TKO (Corner Stoppage) in Round 1

Kun Lun Fight 7 Results

  • Published in Asia

The Kun Lun 7 fight card in China was quite a strange event. First of all the music, seems they had their own song made which they played about 100 times during the show, now I can't stop saying "KUN LUN FIGHTS!" Secondly the results, lots of upsets and no finishes, every fight was a decision, and leaving your fight in the Chinese judges hands is the last thing you want to do. Also there was supposed to be a female MMA fight and I have no idea what happened but they both got in the ring, spoke on the mic, cried, hugged and left the ring without fighting. (wish I could understand Chinese)

Andy Souwer (Holland) vs. Mustapha Haida (Morocco) - Mustapha Haida wins extra Rd Decision

Fukai Jiao (China) vs. Chris Ngimbi (Kongo) - Fukai Jiao wins Decision

Antoine Habash - a Beautiful Upset

  • Published in Europe

The 6000 fans at The Centennial Hall of Wroclaw, Poland didn't see this coming. Probably no one did except a few from the Hungarian fighter, Antoine Habash's team. FEN's K-1/MMA event "War is coming" had local hero, multiple times WKN, WKA, WFM K-1 and Muay Thai champ Tomas Makowski as the main event against Hungary's IFMA bronze medalist, WAKO amateur silver medalist, WAKO PRO K-1 champ Antoine Habash, training out of Re-Gym, Hungary's most prestigious Muay Thai camp.

Makowski came out swinging and tried to cut it short with low kicks and combinations but Antoine had other plans. He countered with straight punches, uppercuts, thigh kicks and some flying knees. As the round was over and the fighters went to their corners you could see the surprised look in Makowski's eyes.

Then the second round has started and you could see Habash changing gears and taking over. Combinations were raining down on Makowski and a when a brutal thigh kick landed his leading leg buckled as the knee gave out. He couldn't stand on it anymore and the fight got called.

Antoine Habas won via TKO in rd 2.
