Saenchai Drew Capacity Crowds for NYC Seminar

  • Published in Muay Thai

This past weekend in the snowy New York City Saenchai headed into the heart of the city with Yokkao promoter Stefania Picelli for a stint of three days jam-packed with seminars and private sessions. Saenchai, along with Manop Yuangyai shocked attendants by putting on a blistering three-hour long seminar for the attendees. The seminars were originally intended to be at the York College Arena where they could fit more people in, but due to weather they ended up having more intimate affairs at the Striking 101 Gym where they had to limit each seminar to 50 people.

In attendance were professional fighters and muay thai enthusiasts from all over the country, even attendees from as far as Canada and Brazil. 

Due to the success of these seminars Yokkao are looking to hold more seminars across the country with Saenchai. If your gym is interested in hosting one reach out to them; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Nathan Corbett Back in the Win Column This Weekend

  • Published in Australia

Nathan Corbett

When Nathan "Carnage" Corbett made his GLORY debut at GLORY 11 Chicago against Tyrone Spong there were high hopes among seasoned Kickboxing and Muay Thai fans as Nathan Corbett has been tearing up opponents at Light Heavyweight for years now, but mostly in Australia. He's been the guy that everyone has wanted to switch over to Kickboxing for years, but honestly, his few stints into Heavyweight Kickboxing didn't bear fruit. With GLORY promoting more weight classes it seemed like a perfect fit, the only problem was he ran into Tyrone Spong in the prime of his fighting career and things didn't work out for him.

Carnage came back with a vengeance this weekend at Total Carnage IV from Gold Coast where he met Henriques Zowa from the Netherlands. How did it go? Well, it's Carnage and he's allowed to throw elbows. Carnage scored a stoppage via an elbow strike in the second round.

K-1 MAX Madrid Show This Weekend

  • Published in K-1

Here's a show announcement that kind of snuck up out of nowhere - this weekend in Madrid, Spain will be a regional K-1 MAX show.  The show is being put on by K-1 MAX Madrid, and will feature a traditional 8 man tournament.  These kind of regional events are not out of the ordinary for K-1, who brand many smaller, local shows as K-1 shows.  While these shows are affiliated with K-1, they are typically not a part of the official K-1 season - meaning don't expect mention of this event on the K-1 website, or for the tournament winner to automatically enter the GP Final 16.

The biggest name in the tournament is definitely Warren Stevelmans.  A K-1 MAX veteran who won the MAX 2008 Netherlands tournament, Stevelmans has been in there with the division's very best, including Andy Souwer, Giorgio Petrosyan, and Albert Kraus among many others.  He fights often, and almost always against tough competition, so his record only stands at 4-5 in the last 2 years, but those loses all come against tough opposition.  I would consider him the favorite in this field.

Stevelmans's toughest challenger here is likely Rachid Belaini, who comes in off a huge win over the top 25 ranked Khem Sitsonpeenong at It's Showtime in September.  If Belaini can keep that momentum going, he can definitely win this event and use that victory as the start of a big 2011.

Also in the tournament are WBC champion Alex Asumu; Hassan Ait Bassou, a good fighter making the move up to 70kg from his normal 63kg weight; Jonay Risco; Manzy Pauwels, a Muay Thai fighter who won a similar regional tournament in 2009; Rafa Del Toro; and Rafi Zohueir, a Muay Thai fighter who was slated to represent Spain on the ill-fated The Contender Asia Season 2.

Watch Pavel Zhuravlev vs. Sebastien Van Thielan from SuperKombat WGP III

  • Published in Video

Romania's SuperKombat has decidedly stood out over the year, coming from the Local Kombat shows of years past and building their own World Grand Prix tournament that stretches over multiple qualifying tournaments. While the level of talent within the qualifying tournaments is not great, the winners coming out are without a doubt top notch, including Sergeii Laschenko, Ismael Londt and now Pavel Zhuravlev. Zhuravlev is a guy that you might not know a lot about, outside of his lone K-1 fight which was against Gokhan Saki where he actually defeated Gokhan Saki in a Superfight by Unanimous Decision. Since then he has yet to appear in K-1 again, but the truth is, when he does he will be a force to be dealt with. His specialty over the past few years has been winning tournaments, it seems, not on the big world stage like K-1, but still really solid wins in tournaments, and it was no surprise when he took the SuperKombat WGP III by storm. Don't weigh against him for the loss to Igor Jurkovic at Utlimate Glory in May, that is one of only 6 career losses.

Video is from our good friends at Gladiatorium.ro.
