Tyrone Spong Making His Professional Boxing Debut on March 6th

(C) Glory Sports International

It looks like Tyrone Spong's first fight back after his injury will officially be in a boxing ring. According to BoxingScene we can expect to see Tyrone Spong boxing in Germany on March 6th. Promoter Erol Cylan is in talks with Oczan Cetinkaya and Alexander Ustinov to possibly fight Spong on the card that will air on EuroSport.

While we are hoping to see Spong back to kickboxing soon and many have high hopes for his MMA career, we'll take seeing Spong back in any sport, hopefully healthy and looking strong.

ShootBoxing 2015 Act.1 Fight Card

Shoot Boxing is doing their next show on February 21, 2015 at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan. We are very glad to see Zouggari back in action after his impressive performance at the S-cup tournament, taking that fight on a days notice. It's going to be scary to see how he does with time to actually train and prepare himself properly but then again he is fighting Shishido who has a lot of experience. Also Nagashima is looking to get back into the win column after his last fight was a draw, and two losses before that, he really needs one. Overall sounds like its going to be a fun event, lets hope the judges aren't as bias as the 65kgs tournament this time.

Fight Card

Hiroki Shishido (Caesar gym) VS Zakaria Zouggari (Melvin F & F)

Yuki Sakamoto (Caesar gym) VS Nagashima Yuichiro (Sakigakejuku)

Hiroki Naito (striking gym Ares) VS Miyazaki (TARGET)

Shimada Ko(Caesar force dojo) VS Ishizuka Yuji (Caesar gym)

SuperKombat Launches SuperKombat Academy

SuperKombat has drawn a line in the sand and has chosen 2015 to be their big stand for them to build up new, big stars for the SuperKombat brand. Today was a big news day for the promotion, announcing that they will run six live World Grand Prix events this year on EuroSport, starting with their March 7th event. There will be four big Heavyweight World Grand Prix events held this year (March 7, May 23, June 19 and August 1), the Final Elimination on October 2nd and the World Grand Prix Final on November 7th.

The big news, though, is the announcement of the SuperKombat Academy concept. The concept is that SuperKombat will run a competition between 32 Heavyweights in search of the next big SuperKombat star. With a sizable investment of $5mil USD SuperKombat is looking to run a reality series and introduce these fighters on their live events, where they will test the fighters to move forward. The idea is that they will be preparing these fighters to be high level fighters and stars. The investment is to help with their training, salaries, supplements, travel and public-facing training to help make them into more complete packages.

This is a rather unique opportunity for fighters out there to live the dream in for the next three years (the length of the competition) by having SuperKombat essentially pay their bills for them and for these fighters to concentrate on training.

The next SuperKombat event is on March 7th, featuring Benjamin Adegbuyi, Andrei and Bogdan Stoica, Cristian Ristea, Michal Wlazlo, Marcelo Adriaansz, Amansio Paraschiv, D’Angelo Marshall and more.

Badr Hari Calls Out the Heavyweight Division, Probably Won't Fight Any of Them

Yesterday Badr Hari put the Heavyweight division in kickboxing on notice with a tweet showing some of the world's top heavyweights and that they are on his radar. The thing is, there's pretty much no chance of some of these fights coming anywhere close to happening.

Pictured are five of the best heavyweights in the world in Rico Verhoeven, Daniel Ghita, Ismael Londt, Hesdy Gerges and Tyrone Spong. Also pictured is Patrice Quateron, whom no insult intended, is simply not one of the best heavyweights in the world. This is an interesting thing by his social media team to get people talking and places Quateron in the conversation among top guys. Quateron is probably the only of the six that there is a slim chance of him actually fighting, although it should be noted that they were supposed to fight late in 2014 and after Quateron insulted Badr Hari and released a recording of a phone call with Mike Passenier where Mike apparently asked for him to throw the fight the fight magically fell apart.

Look, everyone loves Badr Hari, but four of those five fighters are affiliated with GLORY, one is a Light Heavyweight overcoming an awful injury (Spong) and Londt is a possibility, but honestly Londt would be a legitimate threat to Badr Hari at this point. I expect a Quateron fight to happen at some point, but at this point it is highly suspect. We all want to see Badr Hari making the best uses of his talents, but right now it just doesn't look like it'll happen.

Poturak vs. Munoz to Headline FFC7 Sarajevo on March 13th

Orsat Zovko's promotion FFC kicks off its 2015 with another kickboxing/MMA hybrid show that will be headlined by Dzevad Poturak squaring off against Frank Munoz. This is a solid battle of Heavyweights just operating outside of the fringes of being top fighters and could easily find themselves back into the mix with a few big wins. 

Poturak had retired due to injuries back in 2013 but was able to mount a successful comeback in the second half of 2014. Munoz will be a big test for the 37 year old fighter, the first big test since his official comeback. 

It'a also interesting to note that FFC is technically on FFC17 but that FFC7 was originally planned for Sarajevo and was canceled, making this the FFC event that never happened initially and them now making up for it.

Another Insanely Stacked Card for Kunlun on February 1st

It's hard to argue with the sheer quality of the Kunlun cards that they are putting together in China, the next of which goes down on February 1st in Guangzhou. Kunlun 19 is shaping up to be pretty fascinating with the finals of their 70kg tournament taking place and more on their Heavyweight tournament. I'm not sure that Kunlun will be sustainable into the future, but have fun with it while it lasts because we sure as hell will be.

Here's a breakdown of what they'll be offering. The list of name talent is long, including Konstantin Ghulov, mighty Mo, Hesdy Gerges, Ashwin Balrak, Andrei Herasimchuk, Marat Grigorian, Aikpracha Meenayothin, Davit Kirita, Artur Kyshenko and more. I mean, wow. It's also fair to note that Kunlun is making an effort at getting their stuff out there in English, although it's a bit rough around the edges.

Giorgio Petrosyan Returns This Weekend, Plus ANOTHER Fight in April Against Enriko Kehl

It's been a long time since we've seen Giorgio Petrosyan in the ring. In fact, I'd argue that it has been too long. The last time that we saw Petrosyan in the ring was December of 2013 when Andy Ristie was able to overcome the best fighter at 70kg via knockout. It was shocking at the time, but now we've all settled into this reality. This coming Saturday Petrosyan finally returns to the ring at Thai Boxe Mania 2015 against Erkan Varol in Turin, Italy.

The other big news is that Petrosyan's next fight is already lined up and it's going to be a big one. At Oktagon's 20th anniversary event on April 11th Petrosyan is set to face 2014 K-1 World MAX Champion Enriko Kehl in what should be an awesome bout. The young Kehl has proven himself as a worthy contender and a rising star of his own over the past few years and it will be quite the test for Petrosyan after such a long layoff.
