K-1 Japan 65kgs Tournament Results

  • Published in K-1

Last night the K-1 Japan 65kgs tournament took place including names like Yuta Kubo, Hiroya, and Michael "Tomahawk" Thompson. Overall I really enjoyed the fights, they all seemed well matched, with every fighter bringing their own unique style to the ring making the fights exciting.

We saw a wicked spinning back fist KO at the hands of Takeru in a fight that I thought he was losing. The return of Hiroya was great but once again he always seems to come up a bit short. There were two fighters that really stood out for me though, of course the tournament winner, southpaw from Thailand Kaew Fairtex, with his lightning fast head kicks, his huge upset over Kubo, and his ability to avoid punches even with the ref harassing him about clinching. Also we found out his father had passed away a week ago, he dedicated his win to him. It seemed to me that Fairtex hurt his left shin in his first fight, since he threw it a lot less in the 2nd and 3rd plus it all bandaged up, didn't seem to effect his performance too much though. Secondly a British fighter named Kerrith Bhella, I personally hadn't seen him fight before, and I half expected K-1 to give Yuya someone he could beat up in Japan. I was very wrong, Bhella's technique was some of the best I have seen, tight hands, fast powerful jab and combos followed by leg kicks, and an almost flawless defense. I really hope we get to see more of him after his defeat of Yamamoto last night.

Yusuke Sugawara vs Kaew Fairtex Headlines M-1 Sutt Yod Muay Thai vol.4 on 11/11

  • Published in Muay Thai

In just under 2 weeks, M-1 Muay Thai will be putting on Sutt Yod Muay Thai vol.4, a 2 part show featuring a pair of WPMF Women’s World title fights, a WPMF Japan title fight and other top Japanese fighters like J-Network Super Flyweight champion Yuki, Shunsuke Oishi, Kousuman and J-Girls Flyweight champ Tomoko SP.

In the main event of part 2, former Lumpinee Stadium Featherweight champion Kaew Fairtex takes on J-Network Super Lightweight champion Yusuke Sugawara at 65kg. Although Kaew is no longer at the top of his game, he found success earlier this year, winning the Legend of Heroes 65kg 8-man tournament in Beijing, with wins over Taito, Wei Liu and, in the finals, Yodsanklai. He followed that up with a win in M-1 in September, knocking out Kousuman in the 4th round. Sugawara has been on the verge of breaking through to the upper echelon of the Lightweight/Super Lightweight divisions for the past two years, but he has been unable to put together a string of wins against top competition. He is 3-2 in 2012, starting the year with a win in Shootboxing, but losing 2 straight to MA Kick champ Mohan Dragon and Yukihiro Komiya in RISE before bouncing back with a win over Shohei Asahara. His most recent fight was a win over MMA fighter Kensaku Nakamura in Shootboxing.

The co-main event is a fight for the vacant WPMF Japan Cruiserweight title between #2 ranked Naoki Samukawa and SHOHEI. Samukawa has fought mostly in MMA this past year, but is still primarily a kickboxer and is 5-0-1 in his last 6 fights and has only lost twice since a loss to Chi Bin Lim in February of 2007. SHOHEI had won 2 in a row before losing to Yodsanklai in September.

At 63.5kg, WPMF Japan #1 ranked Super Lightweight Shunsuke Oishi fights Buakaw Weerasakreck. Oishi (14-11-3, 10 KO) is 2-2 in his last 4, scoring stoppages of Yuto Watanabe and Yuki Yamamoto while losing to Saenchai and most recently Hidekazu Tanaka in a fight for the WPMF Japan Super Lightweight title. Buakaw (39-18-5, 5 KO) is 3-1 on the year, with wins over Hayato Hatekayama, Yusaku Fujikura and the aforementioned Tanaka, losing in his most recent fight to WPMF Japan Welterweight champion T-98. With Oishi being ranked #1 and Buakaw holding a recent win over Tanaka, I suspect the winner of this fight will face Tanaka for the title.

Also on part 2 of the card is a 67kg fight between Kousuman and Shinya Hikafuji, as well as a 53.5kg fight between J-Network Super Flyweight champ Yuki and J-Network #1 ranked Bantamweight Kenta.

Part 1 of the card focuses primarily on the female divisions, as this portion is headlined by a WPMF Women’s World Featherweight title fight between reigning champ Sawsing Sor. Sopis and NJKF Bonita Boxeo Featherweight champ AZUMA. This fight is a rematch from March 25th at Sutt Yod Muay Thai vol.1, which Sawsing won via cut in the 4th round to win this title. Since that fight, AZUMA is 3-0, defending her NJKF title in April.

In the co-main event, WPMF Women’s World Pinweight champion Chiharu looks to defend her title against former WPMF Women’s World Mini Flyweight champion Little Tiger. This will mark the 3rd time that these two have fought, with Chiharu winning both fights, the first in 2007 and the second in 2011, which won Chiharu this title. Since their second fight, Chiharu is 0-1-1, fighting Fir both times and drawing her in a 5 round fight, but losing a 3 round decision. Little Tiger is 5-0 since then, picking up a win over Fir, defending her WPMF Japan Atomweight title against Nao Iida, and winning the WPMF Women’s World Mini Flyweight title against Thicher Kor. Adison in June, but vacating it for a third fight against Chiharu.

Also scheduled to fight on the card is J-Girls Flyweight champion Tomoko SP, though she does not have an opponent as of now.

K-1 World Grand Prix -65kg Results: Kaew the Killer

  • Published in Asia

K-1 Japan held their K-1 World Grand Prix -65kg tournament last night in Japan in a night full of huge fights and a -65kg tournament that determined the best fighter in the weight class. Like a buzzsaw, Kaew Fairtex found himself holding steady as the king of the -65kg division, winning his second K-1 World Grand Prix in spectacular fashion. The night opened for him blasting through HIROYA, taking a hard-fought decision over Masaaki Noiri and then making mince-meat out of Ilias Bulaid's ribs in the second round of the finals with three blistering knee knockdowns.

Bulaid's path to the finals was impressive as well, with him taking out Chris Mauceri with body punches in the quarterfinals and taking a close extra round decision over Yamazaki to make it to the finals. Kaito Ozawa also learned that you just don't mess with Takeru. You just don't.

K-1 The Championship: Title Fights Breakdown

  • Published in K-1

Since this next K-1 Card is so exciting we've decided to breakdown the 4 title fights and get everyone as pumped up as we are. The full card is listed AT THIS LINK.

This card will be played on NICO NICO TV, we posted instructions on the easiest way to order from this site earlier in the year for the S-cup, you can order these the same way just instead of looking for the name S-cup u should look for the name K-1 WGP 2015 The championship. Here is the link on how to order through NICO NICO.

Kaew Fairtex(c) vs Kimura "Phillip" Minoru

We will start with the 65kg fight between Kaew Fairtex and Kimura Minoru. This fight is a rematch from January of this year where Minoru won a very controversial decision. First of all here is the video of the fight.

Now lets talk about the elephant in ring... that referee! I believe that by being so involved in the fight and constantly touching, pushing, and breaking up the fighters he actually ruined the outcome of the fight. In the 2nd round Fairtex had Minoru badly hurt yet the ref kept interfering because of the clinch and then spending extra time talking and pushing the fighters around for no reason which gave Minoru plenty of time to recover. Also it seemed that Kaew won the first two rounds quite decisively but then he got an 8 count in the 3rd, I was sure there was going to be an extra round but was proven wrong by the bad judging.

Since their last meeting which was almost a year ago both fighters have been very active and made great improvements. Fairtex is getting much more confidant with his boxing which is showing us the power he has in hands but for this fight its best if he sticks with his left body and head kick. The only time he was ever in any danger the first fight was when he decided to come in and punch, which eventually got him an 8 count and cost him the fight. He can use that kick all fight to keep himself out of range of the dangerous hands of Minoru.

There is no doubt that Kimura has huge power and speed in his hands for this weight class, it seems no matter who he touches on the chin, they fall down. He will really need to work on keeping his left foot on the outside of Kaews right foot and using his explosiveness to get past the kick and land punch combinations. I'm really expecting fireworks with this fight, now lets just hope they have a better referee this time.

Marat Grigorian(c) vs Sanny Dahlbeck

Grigorian vs Dahlbeck is once again the typical orthodox boxer vs southpaw kicker which seems to be happening a lot lately but always makes for an interesting fight.

Armenian fighter Marat Grigorian is the current K-1 70kgs champion and is now training at Hemmers gym in Holland. He is predominantly a boxer who throws in low kicks and knees every so often. His strongest attributes are the constant pressure he can put on fighters and his great combinations. He will really have to use this against Dahlbeck, the last time Grigorian fought a good southpaw it was against a much smaller fighter in Serhiy Adamchuk the newly crowned Glory 65kgs champion. To be fair Adamchuk took the fight on 24 hours notice, which of course is a disadvantage for Adamchuk but everyone forgets that Grigorian had been training for an Orthodox fighter for 4-6 weeks and now he gets sprung with a tricky southpaw last minute. This led to Marat having a really bad performance and losing to Adamchuk who was really making Grigorian look sloppy. For this fight Grigorian cannot just plod forward, get into range and throw punches like he usually does, he must use more explosiveness and push Dahlbeck to the ropes then unleash his combinations. If Marat can keep close to Dahlbeck and keep him on the ropes I feel Sanny will get tired and eventually get stopped in the later rounds.

Sanny Dahlbeck is a Swedish fighter who spends lots of his time in Thailand training at Sitmonchai. He is an extremely explosive southpaw with a very hard and fast left hand. Southpaws always have a small advantage over orthodox fighters because for the most part they always fight and train with right handed fighters, where as orthodox fighters only meet left handed fighters once in a while and to find a good southpaw for training is quite difficult. Dahlbeck will need to use this as much as possible, he will need to use his left kick and straight left as much as possible and make sure he angles off after throwing. If Sanny can keep Marat off balance with his body kick, angle to maintain the center of the ring and clinch up to avoid damage he can make this an easy night just like Adamchuk did. Dahlbeck is taller than Adamchuk, this is a good thing because he can land his straight left from further away and get the angle without too much danger but it could also mean that Marat is able to keep him off balance more due to his higher center of gravity in which case Sanny will end up on the ropes and be in big trouble.

I really do feel that conditioning is going to play a huge part in this fight, with Grigorians pressure if Dahlbeck gets tired in the last round he will not make it to the decision but if Dahlbeck has trained hard and made sure he is ready to move the whole fight he should be fine.

Koya Urabe(c) vs Hirotaka Urabe 

In case you didn't notice yes, these guys have the same last name and yes they are brothers. Koya is Hirotaka's younger brother, they have already fought once before in the final of the 60kgs tournament in January of this year.

Now keep in mind after watching that fight that they had both already won two fights, Hirotaka got one first round KO but in the semi-finals he ended up winning an extra round decision and Koya got two first round knockouts. You can tell that Hirotaka already had a damaged leg going into the final and Koya took advantage of it like a good little brother would do.

Koya is a southpaw and maybe a little bit slicker and more skilled but Hirotaka is tougher, grittier and will never give up especially now that his younger brother already beat him once. Both fighters love to use their hands so the southpaw to orthodox thing plays less of a role plus I'm sure they know each other very well since they have probably been training together their whole lives before this fight. I personally feel the fight is going to play out quite similar to the previous one but it will be very interesting to see what Hirotaka can do without a damaged back leg. Hirotaka has to find a way to surprise his younger brother, it seemed in the first fight that Koya was always one step ahead.

Whatever happens with this fight these two are always non-stop action from bell to bell and Hirotaka seems very motivated to take that belt from his younger brother as he feels that he deserves it.

Takeru(c) vs Charles Bongiovanni

I had not heard much about the Frenchman Charles Bongiovanni until his last fight on the K-1 Survival wars card where he took on Danial Williams. Williams is usually the hard puncher for this 55kg weight class but Bongiovanni proved he was right up there as well by landing a perfect counter right hook to drop Charles and then showed great finishing skills to drop him twice more. Its quite unusual to get first round knockouts in the 55kg division but Charles has proven he has the power to do it. Once again there is a pattern with all the fights here and Bongiovanni is a Southpaw and looks like he will be the taller of the two fighters so we will see how well he is able to work that on the current champion Takeru.

Takeru is not a big power puncher like Williams or Bongiovanni but he can score knockdowns with well placed punches due to his great technique. He will definitely be the more technical fighter of the two and he has great eyes to see what openings he can capitalize on as you can see in his fight above with Alexandre Prilip. Takeru lands one overhand right, and then its just a matter of time before he lands another to put Prilip down for an 8 count to end the first round. I really feel that both of these fighters are not the type to move backwards and they will meet in the middle and stand toe to toe until one fighter falls down. I'd be quite surprised if this one gets to the judges scorecards.

RISE/M-1 Infinity Results: Yamamoto, Yoshimoto Victorious; Kamimura, Mizuochi Win WPMF Titles

  • Published in Asia

Earlier today, RISE and M-1 Muay Thai Challenge held their first joint show titled Infinity, with top Japanese fighters Masahiro Yamamoto and Koji Yoshimoto taking on Beverwijk Top Team prospects Mansour Yaqubi and Raz Sarkisjan. Also on the show were RISE mainstays Sun Hyun Lee and Dyki, as well as two WPMF World title fights featuring Yosuke Mizuochi and Erika Kamimura.

In the main event, RISE 65kg champion Koji Yoshimoto handed Raz Sarkisjan a second straight loss with a unanimous decision, with all 3 judges scoring it 29-28. Sarkisjan looked to use his power and seems to have landed on Yoshimoto pretty well, but Yoshimoto seems to have turned in on in the 3rd round, securing a victory. Yoshimoto pushes his win streak to five and could see himself rematching Yasuomi Soda in another title defense. Though he is past his physical prime, Yoshimoto, much like Ryuji Kajiwara, seems to have settled into himself quite well and finds ways to win fights. Sarkisjan drops two straight after a big upset win over Masaaki Noiri in May. While he certainly has good power, Sarkisjan will have to work on other aspects of his game if he wants to make an impact in GLORY, though I believe he is only 20 years old, meaning he has plenty of time to improve.

In the co-main event, It’s Showtime 61kg champion Masahiro Yamamoto scored a 3rd round TKO of Mansour Yaqubi, scoring 3 knockdowns in the final round. Yamamoto rode the momentum of his win against Javier Hernandez, coming out aggressive, but I believe he was dropped at the beginning of the 3rd round. Despite that, Yamamoto stormed back with 3 knockdowns of his own to stop the fight. Yamamoto has now won 6 straight. His international future is sort of in limbo right now with Glory’s purchase of It’s Showtime, but with Glory setting up a Tokyo office, I would imagine Yamamoto will be a huge part in attempting to market kickboxing to a Japanese audience again.

At 55kg, Shooto Flyweight champion Mikihito Yamagami came up short in RISE once again, dropping a majority decision to #1 ranked Dyki on scores of 27-26(x2) and 27-27. Dyki has now won 4 in a row and could see himself in a fight for the vacant RISE 55kg title in the future, possibly rematching Ryuma Tobe. Yamagami gives another top Super Bantamweight a tough test, but ends up on the losing side once again. If he were to focus his efforts entirely on kickboxing, he could be a force in the 55kg division, but for now he looks like he has a long reign as Shooto champion in his future, already holding his title for a year and defending it once.

In the night’s lone RISE vs M-1 fight, Sun Hyun Lee scored a 1st round KO of Buakaw WSR at 2:58. Lee improves to 4-1 in RISE and 5-2 in Japan and has a rematch with RISE 63kg champion and LiverKick #4 ranked Lightweight Yuki at RISE/M-1 Infinity.II on January 6th for the title. Lee defeated Yuki in their first meeting, a non-title affair, but with Yuki’s big win over Javier Hernandez at RISE 90, a win for Lee could vault him into the top 10 of the LiverKick rankings. Buakaw takes his first loss at this weight in Japan and is winless in his last 3, though he has faced good competition, even moving up in weight to face T-98.

In a fight for the vacant WPMF World Lightweight title, WPMF Japan and WBC Japan champion Yosuke Mizouchi defeated Nong’an Sasiprapa by 2nd round KO to claim the title. Since an up and down start to his career, Mizuochi has emerged as one of the top Lightweights in Japan over the last 2 years, going 10-1 with wins over Yoshinori Nakasuka, Keiji Ozaki, Ikki, Keijiro Miyakoshi and now Nong’an, claiming the WPMF Japan, WBC Japan and now WPMF World Lightweight titles. This fight could set up a title defense against another top ranked Thai, but the last two fighters to hold this belt had it taken from them before being able to defend it, so who knows if Mizuochi will be able to do anything with it.

In the night’s other WPMF World title fight, Erika Kamimura reclaimed the WPMF Women’s World Mini Flyweight title with a 3rd round KO of Loma Lookboonmee. Kamimura reclaims the belt that she gave up without defending and showed the power she is famous for in doing so. A rematch with RENA set for some time in the future will be crucial for her, as a loss would mean dropping to 0-2 against her rival and possibly fighting in the shadow of RENA until she got another chance at redemption.

azing card with an 8-man tournament at 60kgs where there is a high possibility that the Urabe brothers are going to fight in the finals again. As hard as it is for me to watch two brothers fight (they have already fought each other multiple times) they do make an exciting fight everytime. Also Kaew Weerasakreck will be defending his 65kgs belt against Hideaki Yamazaki. The last time they fought was in 2014 and Kaew won by decision but Yamazaki has got a lot better so this should be interesting.
