This Saturday's W5 GP to Stream Online

  • Published in Kickboxing

W5 Grand PrixThis weekend's big kickboxing action comes from Moscow, as the city hosts the W5 Grand Prix.  Highlight of the show is the 4 man 70kg tournament featuring Mike Zambidis, Dzhabar Askerov, William Diender, and Enriko Gogokhia.  Now we've got good news for fans - the show will be streamed live online.  Visit http://allboxing.tv/en where the show can be purchased for just 99 rubles - that translates to roughly $3.50 US (2,50 Euro).  That's a great price to see these fighters in action.  Show starts at 6:00 pm Moscow time on Saturday - 10:00 am EST in the US, 2:00 pm GMT.

Although this is a smaller show, this is definitely a strong four man field for a tournament.  The semi-final round will feature Zambidis vs. Gogokhia and Askerov vs. Diender.  Both are excellent fights in their own right, but the big money fight is definitely the potential Zambidis vs. Askerov final.  Both men are aggressive and have been knocking out opponents lately.  Their clash would be two heavy hitters coming at each other, and could be a very exciting showdown.  It seems likely that this is where the tournament will go, but in this format you never know how it will play out.  If there's a spoiler here, I'd say it's Gogokhia, who has been under the radar, but looked great in two 8 man tournaments last year.  I still think Zambo will take him, but he's a tough challenger to watch out for.

One other fighter to watch on the card is Alexander Stetsurenko.  The talented Russian fighter holds a 2009 win over It's Showtime champion Artem Levin, and is deserving of a high profile international fight.

The complete line-up:

MIKE ZAMBIDIS vs. ENRIKO GOGOKHIA (71 kg)

DZHABAR ASKEROV vs. WILLIAM DIENDER (71 kg)

FINAL

ROMAN MAYILOV vs. RAMIL NOZRUZOV (63.5 kg)

VLADIMIR MINEEV vs. VITALY SHEMETIV (91 kg)

ALEXANDER STETSURENKO vs. VASSILY TERESHONOK (81 kg)

ALIM NABIEV vs. VYACHESLAV BORSCHEV (67 kg)

VLADIMIR SHULIAK vs. PETR VOSNITSKI (71 kg)
