Kevin Ross Captaining K-1's Upcoming USA vs. China Event on January 1st

Since K-1's event last December in China there has been a lot of hushed talk about the future of K-1 in China. The year 2014 has been a lot better to K-1 than other years and there have been a lot of deals talked about that could possibly make K-1 not only a major player in China, but huge in China. From what we've seen, K-1 has been training referees, judges and other officials on top of lending a hand to train fighters in China over the last year and on January 1st K-1 will make their return to China with a huge USA vs. China event.

It'll take place in Golden Eagle Culture City, Changsua, China and as I stated before, the theme will be USA vs. China. While we don't know all of the names just yet, we have heard that Kevin Ross has signed to be the Team Captain of Team USA and will be fighting, which is pretty big news considering that Ross was being courted by K-1 years ago and GLORY last year only for nothing to come of it. We've also been told that Canadian Gabriel Varga is scheduled to appear on the card, which is interesting considering there was talk of him competing for GLORY's Featherweight Championship soon. 

Tiffany Van Soest is also announced for the card.

GLORY 19 Moved to February

It's official, GLORY 19 has been pushed back to February. We were informed by GLORY officials yesterday that they were making the decision to push the event forward to give them more time to properly promote the event and were waiting to inform the fighters before making the announcement. The news comes after we had still yet-to-learn where GLORY 19 was planned to take place. We spoke with GLORY's Jon J. Franklin last night for the inside scoop on why GLORY had made the decision to postpone GLORY 19.

"Obviously I'm disappointed that we had to move off the December 19th date. But I'd have been even more disappointed if we continued with the hard work it takes to put on an event like GLORY does and it didn't live up to the standard our fans have come to expect and demand," Franklin explained to us.

"As planned for 2015, we will take January off and then return on SPIKE with GLORY 19 in February. Our Heavyweight World Champion Rico Verhoeven is facing a tough task in Errol Zimmerman and we've also got the buzzsaw that is Nieky Holzken and human highlight reel Raymond Daniels. Once we're able to announce the full card for GLORY 19, it will be worth the wait."

In the coming weeks we'll have more information about the upcoming GLORY 19.

Blade 1 Superfights December 29th

The Blade1 show will be taking place on December 29th at the Ota City General Gymnasium on December 29th in Tokyo, Japan. The card will consist of a 61 kgs tournament as well as quite a few superfights with well known names.

Zabit Samedov will be back in action facing Japan's Uehara Makoto should be a good for fight for Samedov I'd imagine. Slovenian Samo Petje fresh off his KO over Hinata will be facing another big Japanese name in Yasuhiro Kido, I have a feeling this will be fight of the night because Kido won't be going down without a fight. Next we have Hinata taking on the Cos-Play king Nagashima, I am very curious about this fight, it's all going to come down to who can avoid the others strengths. If Nagashima can get past Hinata's left kick and land any one of his powerful punches I feel he could finish him, otherwise Hinata is just going to kick him non-stop all fight.

SuperFights

  • 93Kg - Uehara Makoto (Japan) vs. Zabit Samedov (Azerbaijan/Belarus)
  • 70Kg - Kido Yasuhiro (Japan) vs. Samo Petje (Slovenia)
  • Heavyweight - Nobu Hayashi (Japan) vs. Murat Aygun (Holland)
  • 70Kg - Hinata (Japan) vs. Nagashima Jienotsu Yuichirou (Japan)
  • Heavyweight - Raoumaru (Japan) vs. KOICHI (Japan)
  • 55Kg - Degai Taisuke (Japan) vs. Nasukawa Tenshin (Japan)
  • 64Kg - Yuki (Japan) vs. Taniyama Toshiki (Japan)

Hesdy Gerges Sentenced to Five Years in Prison on 2011 Cocaine Smuggling Case

If you remember all the way back to 2011, you might remember that Hesdy Gerges was arrested for drug trafficking in connection to a case involving his half-brother. Gerges was charged with trafficking 128 kilos of cocaine (not joking). He wasn't actually caught with the drugs, his half-brother was, but he was linked to the case for potential smuggling. That case came back to bite him on Friday, when he was sentenced to five years in prison. 

Gerges made a statement on his Facebook page yesterday refuting the charges yet again.

"I was truly shocked about my conviction today. But trust me, I am NOT guilty! So I will fight this battle in court.

Meanwhile, I will keep training hard, and will be fighting my battles in the ring.

To all my loyal friends and fans: Thanks for your trust and support!!!

Osu!"

His lawyer went on Twitter to express his frustrations, with many believing that Gerges and his legal team are going to fight the charges.

"Unbelievable that Hesdy Gerges is convicted in Belgium about a file case that didn't have any evidence at the time in 2011, for any involvement with coke."

In the meantime all eyes are on GLORY to see if they publicly react to this. Considering the gravity of the charges and the penalty, if Gerges is to spend time in prison chances are he won't be able to compete. It is also a black eye for the promotion who recently had him fight for a chance to challenge for the GLORY Heavyweight Championship. We've heard word that GLORY has privately dismissed Gerges for the time being, but like they dismissed his former opponent, Jamal Ben Saddik, after Ben Saddik attacked him in the ring during a fight for another organization. Although, keep in mind that it is not official until it is announced. 

We hope that this situation is resolved quickly, for the sake of the fans and the sport. 

UPDATE: It looks like Gerges has been officially cut. Here's a statement from Jon J. Franklin to BloodyElbow.

"Hesdy Gerges has been cut from the GLORY roster and removed from its rankings. GLORY does not tolerate any type of illegal activity and will remove athletes that violate our code of conduct in or out of the ring."

Five Titles on the Line at Lumpinee Birthday Show on December 9th

Every December Lumpinee Stadium celebrates its birthday with a big card and while the location might have recently changed the tradition remains with a show featuring no fewer than five title fights booked for next month.

The Krekkrai + Kiatpetch Promotions show on December 9th will see Pakorn PKSaenchaiGym take on Parnphet Kiatjaroenchai in defence of the 135 lbs Lumpinee belt he won by beating Singdam Kiatmoo9 at the grand opening of the stadium’s new location on Ram Intra Road in February.

The challenger is coming off a win over Kongsak PKSaenchaiGym, who trains at the same camp as Pakorn in Bangkok, and Parnphet has also beaten Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnont this year and will be looking to claim a title in one of Muay Thai’s most competitive divisions.

Saketdao Petpayathai, who beat Parnphet earlier this year, was scheduled to take on Kongsak but has been pulled from the card to be replaced by his Kiatpetch team mate Sittisak who faces the former ‘Fighter of the Year’ in a 133 lbs non title bout.

MuangThai Sor Boongium is coming off a fourth round KO win over Tuanpae ThebestUdon and will be back in action to take on another former ‘Fighter of the Year’, Peneak Sitnumnoi, who will be looking to work his way back up the rankings in the lightweight division.

The ten fight card also features reigning ‘Fighter of the Year’ Panpayak Jitmuangnongym who will put his Lumpinee 115 lbs title on the line against Prachanchay PK Saenchaigym while Ongree Sor Decapan and Wanchalong Sitsornong will also be defending stadium titles, against Ronachai Santi-Ubon and Gengkla Por Pekko respectively.

Judging from the flyer the fight between reigning Lumpinee 112 lbs champion Saknarinnoi Or.Auansuwan and Sarawute Phitphakpahadang will be a non title bout although this could easily be an oversight.

Krekkrai + Kiatpetch Promotions show, Lumpinee Stadium, December 9th

1 Ongree Sor Decapan Vs Ronachai Santi-Ubon

(for the Lumpinee 105 lbs title)

2 Prajanban Phor.Suantong vs Ballangngern Phetphanomtuan (107)
