  • Published in Asia

Hero

The year 2014 has had a bit of an odd start, as the first scheduled GLORY event for February is no longer scheduled and we won't get our first GLORY fix until March in Croatia. K-1 holds an event on January 11th in Gran Canaria, Spain, although the card has come down in prominence a bit with the loss of the Maximo Suarez vs. Shane Campbell fight. Hero Legends went down on the 3rd of January in Jinan, China, including some big names.

  • Xu Yan (R3 - UD) Mike Zambidis
  • Artur Kyshenko (R1 - TKO) Shi Yanzi
  • Simon Marcus (R1 - TKO) Li Bei
  • Wong Chung Kong (R3 - UD) Sheng Pei Kangan

Gabriel Varga Out of K-1 USA vs. China Event

  • Published in K-1

GLORY fighter Gabriel Varga was set to compete at the K-1 USA vs. China event on January 1st in China but it looks like all of that has gone up in smoke over the past day. Varga is reporting on having visa issues. Upon entering China they found that he did not have the proper paperwork to enter the country, which meant that he had to turn around and go right back home to Canada. 

Definitely a bit of a bummer for those looking forward to seeing Varga fight. The good news is that there are no other issues as of press time with the event and it should go off without a hitch. We'll keep you posted on any further news for the K-1 China vs. USA event.

Paul Daley Racks Up Another KO Win in MMA

  • Published in K-1

Former UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator fighter Paul Daley has made a name for himself in 2014 on the kickboxing circuit, picking up some super impressive wins over top competition. Daley caught the attention of K-1 and he is set to make his big K-1 debut in October at the K-1 World MAX Finals in Thailand event against Mohammad Ghaedibardeh. Paul Daley has been resigned by Bellator and is expected to fight for them some time in the coming months. 

Before either of those, though, he was scheduled to fight at BAMMA 16 in the UK where he made a huge impact when he scored a huge TKO victory in the second round over Marinho Moreira da Rocha with a crushing left to the liver. Paul Daley's left hand is really a thing of beauty, is it not?

Here's a look at the finishing blow thanks to Caposa.

SuperKombat Looking to License Brand for Shows in 2014

  • Published in Kickboxing

sk

SuperKombat's 2013 came to a close after their last SuperKombat WGP event that saw new champions crowned in many divisions, including a SuperKombat WGP Champion for the third year running. As SuperKombat looks ahead into 2014 they have decided to begin licensing out the brand to interested promoters to help to bring SuperKombat to more cities than they alone could do. It's an interesting idea that we've seen other promotions do, namely K-1 over the past year with their K-1 World Tour events, which can make everyone happy.

SuperKombat gets money from licensing out the brand, as well as finds new talent from these promoters, while the promoters get to promote a larger brand with their own local stars. Fighters also get experience on a show with a solid name brand and can leverage that for more opportunities in the future. It's a win-win for everyone.

“Those kind of events are not organized by SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship but the promoters can get the license to host the elimination bouts. The winners of these qualification fights will have their places in SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s events, including the New Heroes and the World Grand Prix series. On the other hand, all the events and qualification fights included in other events will be announced exclusively on SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s website at www.superkombat.com," added Eduard Irimia.

Saint-Tropez Fight Night II set for Aug 4th

  • Published in Kickboxing

Saint-Tropez Fight Night have announced their sophomore event will take place on August 4th 2014 from the unique and beautiful venue of La Citadelle in Saint-Tropez, France. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight double-header featuring French kickboxing legend Jerome Le Banner and his fellow countryman Freddy Kemayo, as they square of against Daniel Sam and Peter Aerts respectively. 

Many fans will remember the infamous debut of Saint-Tropez Fight Night last year, whereby Jerome Le Banner defended his WKN World Title and was subsequently presented the belt by Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone. Le Banner looks to pick up his second victory of 2014, as he stopped Luican Danilencu with body-shots back in May. Englishman Daniel Sam will look to get back in the winners circle after getting KO’d by Moroccan prospect Ismael Lazaar last weekend in London. To make it even worse for Sam, he’d lost his last three bouts previously as well, with all three losses coming in in dominant fashion.

Fresh of the announcement that he will meet long-time rival Ernesto Hoost in Japan later this year, ‘The Dutch Lumberjack’ Peter Aerts will also square off against Frenchman Freddy Kemayo. Kemayo enters the bout on a six-fight win streak, having not loss since November 2012.

Saint-Tropez Fight has also announced that all bouts will be contested under Muay Thai rules and at 95kgs. There are more bouts expected to be announced at a later date.

Fight Card

Jerome Le Banner vs. Daniel Sam
Peter Aerts vs. Freddy Kemayo
Correntin Jallon vs. Sergej Maslobojev
Nicolas Wamba vs. Arnold Oborotov
Vladimir Mineev vs. Mikhail Tuterev

Remy Bonjasky Victorious in His Retirement Fight Against Cro Cop

  • Published in News

Remy

Tonight in Zagreb, Croatia fans across the world got to say goodbye to the legendary Remy Bonjasky at GLORY 14 Zagreb. It was a tall task for Bonjasky, who was stepping into the ring with local hero Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic with a rather biased crowd. It didn’t matter, though, as Remy Bonjasky has steppe into the ring with the odds against him in the past before. This was a chance for redemption for Remy Bonjasky, a rematch from twelve years ago that saw Mirko Cro Cop walk away victorious.

It was three tense, close rounds fought by both men. Both Mirko Cro Cop and Remy Bonjasky’s styles have changed as they’ve aged and accumulated injuries, with Cro Cop relying on a more punch-heavy style and Bonjasky more on defense with the hands and offense with the legs. This was the story of the fight, as Mirko would swarm with the punches while Bonjasky would defend, then circle away to get distance and lay into Mirko with body kicks.

Many fans are going to be unhappy about the decision in this fight, though. Cro Cop was a bit more aggressive throughout, but the shots weren’t doing a lot of damage and Bonjasky was never in much trouble. Bonjasky was fighting as he tends to do, but his kicks were landing and landing heavy. This made for an incredibly close bout that fans of both fighters will be disputing for years to come, that being said, Remy Bonjasky’s hand was raised at the end of the night.

Remy Bonjasky has had a tremendous career and it is sad to see him go, but the persisting vision problems as well as years of injuries have made it tough for him to compete against the younger, quicker fighters of today. What we can say is that both men are legends and that nothing, no win or loss, can take that away at this point. I’m genuinely saddened that we won’t have another chance to hear “The Man with the Harmonica” again to lead Remy Bonjasky into the ring, but I was happy to see him walk away from the sport with a victory.
