Fight Night Hungary Recap

This time not only the fighters but the promotion itself had a challenge ahead as Fight Night Hungary has tried a new, bigger location. Even though promoters try to pick great venues and put solid cards together success in this business is never guaranteed. The new location with its 1200m2 size is truly a challenge for anyone in Hungary to be filled. But Fight Night Hungary has pulled it off! The event was packed and the people in attendance have truly seen some glimpse from the glorious past when big names and shows have visited this part of Europe.

Fight Night Hungary had great fights, a fantastic atmosphere and fired up fans. Finally a show where everything was in place - visuals, timing, sound and most important: the fights themselves. Fight Night Hungary has set the bar high for forthcoming events.

The show started with four solid Muay Thai bouts which all helped to get everyone even more fired up for the main card. The K-1 bouts have also seen back and forth wars, knockdowns and an unfortunate doctor's stoppage before we got to the co-main event.

In the co-main event two of the best, most well-known and highly respected fighters, Tamás Birics (WFMC European Champion) and Gábor Görbics (World Combat Games winner, WAKO full-contact European Champion) have collided once again. First time they've fought Görbics won a close decision and some years have passed before the rematch could've been put together. Needless to say this fight was highly anticipated amongst the Hungarian fight fans!

Görbics seemed to be more relaxed in the opening rounds while Birics tried to take control and dictate the pace by moving forward and attempting to being the aggressor. Görbics seemed to have the edge and landed more shots while utilizing his full arsenal: spinning techniques, feints, attacking and retreating in angles. He was really fluid  in both the attacks and chaining everything together.

While it was Görbics who seemed to get the better of the exchanges while moving around and using the angles, toe to toe Birics had successful attempts of takig over, moving his opponent to the ropes, utilizing thunderous leg kicks. Birics has a background and is competing usually in Muay Thai and from the outside he seemed to be missing a few key techniques which he couldn't use due to the restrictions of the different ruleset he used to.

The fifth and final round have started with some huge shots although it was very clear from the beginning that none of the guys wanted to leave it up to the judges this time. Although there was no finish fans got a beautiful, intense fight that put us all on the edge of our seats. Görbics Gábor won a majority decision and have beaten Tamás Birics for a second time.

The fans could not wait any more for the last fight to happen. When Antoine Habash hit the ramp for his entry most of the crowd stood up chanting his name and clapping for him. He took the stage a storm. Tihomir Mitev has stepped into the lion's den.

The first round have seen Antoine landing some good straight just to measure things up and then taking control shortly thereafter. He became more and more confident and rightfully so as Mitev's head turned red and got a bloody nose from all the shots he has taken. At the end of round two Mitev got saved by the bell only. Most of the audience had anticipated something that it has to be over in the next round. And then it happened... After some exchange Antoine has finished a combination with a brutal knee that landed flush on Mitev's chin and the champ fell under the ropes. He was out cold. The crowd has erupted! Standing ovation, clapping everywhere and the new champ has jumped on the ropes to thank everyone. Habash Antoine is the new WKN European Champion and as he promised the belt stays in Hungary!

Superkombat  World Grand Prix Monza: Results

Yesterday in Monza, Italy SuperKombat gave the world the finals of their Light Heavyweight WGP in a night that saw a lot of surprises and confusion. The confusion is rooted in the fact that Cedric Manhoef was unable to attend the event, which was upsetting to the fans in attendance. Then Catalin Morosanu's fight never happened because his opponent, Ron Sparks, fell off the entrance ramp during the pre-fight introductions and injured himself. There was also a mishap with the ring that happened during the event and needed to be tended to. 

The rest of the show scored rave reviews, though.

Yokkao 10 & 11 Results

Yokkao enjoyed yet another successful trip to the UK as their double- event was held from the Macron Stadium last night in Bolton, UK. 

Jordan Watson made a triumphant return to the ring as he finished Mickael Piscitello with low kicks midway through their -70kg contest. It wasn’t an easy night for Watson though, as the Frenchman looked dangerous throughout the contest and even tested Watson’s chin with a superbly timed right-hand counter. The success was short-lived for Piscitello though as not long after getting Watson’s attention with the right-hand the bout was called off due to damage caused by Watson’s low-kicks, meaning Watson becomes Yokkao’s new -70kg world champion.

In the second headliner and title fight of the night Pakorn defeated Englishman Greg Wootton via unanimous decision claiming the Yokkao -65kg world title in the process. Wootton was competitive throughout but clearly wasn’t able to match the much more experienced and technical fighter.

Yokkao 10:
Jordan Watson def. Mickael Piscitello via TKO (low kicks) in Round 3

Hurricane Fight 2014 - A Night of Fireworks

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

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.
