K-1 World MAX Final Gets New October Date

  • Published in K-1

Legendary kickboxing promotion K-1 has announced a new date for their K-1 World MAX Final event in Pattaya, Thailand. Originally scheduled for July, K-1 ran into issues due to the recent political coup in Thailand. Part of the issue was being a foreign promoter looking to enter into a climate that is not usually friendly to outside promoters during a period of turmoil and so many internal changes. K-1 has worked with the local Thai government to acquire the proper licensing and the K-1 World MAX Finals will happen on October 4th, 2014 in Pattaya, Thailand.

The event will feature the K-1 World MAX Finals, crowning a new champion in their 70kg MAX division between Buakaw Banchamek and Enriko Kehl.

Antoine Habash - a Beautiful Upset

  • Published in Europe

The 6000 fans at The Centennial Hall of Wroclaw, Poland didn't see this coming. Probably no one did except a few from the Hungarian fighter, Antoine Habash's team. FEN's K-1/MMA event "War is coming" had local hero, multiple times WKN, WKA, WFM K-1 and Muay Thai champ Tomas Makowski as the main event against Hungary's IFMA bronze medalist, WAKO amateur silver medalist, WAKO PRO K-1 champ Antoine Habash, training out of Re-Gym, Hungary's most prestigious Muay Thai camp.

Makowski came out swinging and tried to cut it short with low kicks and combinations but Antoine had other plans. He countered with straight punches, uppercuts, thigh kicks and some flying knees. As the round was over and the fighters went to their corners you could see the surprised look in Makowski's eyes.

Then the second round has started and you could see Habash changing gears and taking over. Combinations were raining down on Makowski and a when a brutal thigh kick landed his leading leg buckled as the knee gave out. He couldn't stand on it anymore and the fight got called.

Antoine Habas won via TKO in rd 2.

A Look at the Rise of Saulo Cavalari

  • Published in Glory

Although best known for a stellar roster of first class MMA artists, Brazil is becoming equally as well known for kick boxers and muay thai specialists thanks, most recently to GLORY World Series. Today, Saulo Cavalari, Anderson Silva and Alex Perira are well on their way to becoming household names due largely in part to their performances on the GLORY stage. All having made strong and very positive impressions in their match-ups in GLORY; each has also come to GLORY with records of success and titles from their affiliations with other organizations.

Saulo Cavalari, in particular, has quickly become a favorite among fans, photographers and writers alike, largely due to his great personality and brutal knockout power, as evidenced at GLORY 12 in his match-up with Mourad Bouzidi. Cavalari made his debut in October 2013 at GLORY 11 where he faced off against Filip Verlinden. Saulo took the victory home with a decision win in that bout. Since that time it has only been up for this young lion who hails from Curitiba, whose dedication to his craft is well over ten years in the making. Currently Cavalari is ranked number 3 in the light heavyweight category. His record is now 2-1 record in GLORY, having been defeated by Tyrone Spong at GLORY 15 in Instanbul. Even in this bout, Cavalari held his own against the more experienced Spong and lost only due to points. Outside the ring Cavalari exudes warmth, humility and a sense of calm, qualities that greatly contribute to his popularity. Inside the ring, however, is an entirely different matter. His fierceness as a fighter and warrior mentality is destined to make Cavalari one of the most feared men in his division. Saulo comes to the ring ready to destroy and his fists have proven to have brutal force.

Who will be his next opponent? It's anyone's guess. While a match-up between Saulo and GLORY's number 1 contender, Danyo Ilunga would be exciting, an equally exciting and definitely more explosive match-up would be a fight between Cavalari and Gohkan Saki, who now holds the number one spot in the division. In fact, sources close to Saulo indicate that he is very interested in meeting Saki in the ring. Until next time, we'll be all left to watch and wonder who will next fall prey the man known as "Cassius Clay."

GLORY Last Man Standing: Artem Levin Hype Video

  • Published in Glory

Artem Levin is one of those guys that when you mention his name, people who know Kickboxing have a full understanding that he's one of the best in the world and that when it comes down to it on June 21st, Levin is going to be one of the favorites in this tournament. He's run roughshod over the weight range for years in Muay Thai and Kickboxing and during his reign there have only been two men to ever defeat him; Simon Marcus and Joe Schilling. You'd have to think that Levin would be looking for revenge against either man, but will be happy no matter what with a win.

Of course, Alex Peireira has proven himself and maybe the world is overlooking him.
