Yokkao Searching For An American Fighter For Yokkao 21 - 22 in Hong Kong

  • Published in Muay Thai

On Friday, October 28th in Hong Kong Yokkao will present Yokkao 21 and 22, featuring some of the very best in the world of muay thai. Scheduled for Yokkao 22 is Saenchai, although he is still opponent-less. While it isn't a lock, Yokkao is currently searching for an American fighter to step into the ring for Yokkao 21 and 22. So there could be a chance of fighting the great Saenchai or any of the other, top-named Thai fighters at their disposal. The other name that we know is Manachai, who has been training with Saenchai. Another name to add to that list is the ever-impressive Phetmorakot Wor. Sangprapai.

Their next set of events takes place on October 8th in the UK, though, featuring Jordan Watson vs. Ben Hodge, Liam Harrison vs. Fabio Pinca, Manachai vs Panicos Yusuf, Amy Pirnie vs Dakota Ditcheva, Jake Purdy vs Brad Standton, Luke Turner and many more.

LiverKick Podcast January 15, 2017: GLORY 37 Preview and 2016 Awards

  • Published in LK Podcast

Oh yes, it's back. The LiverKick Podcast is back for the second episode of this iteration where Jay Jauncey and myself talk about kickboxing and hopefully keep you, our fine readers and listeners, happy. 

Last time we talked about GLORY: Collision, rankings, the state of kickboxing and how much we missed Japanese kickboxing. It was kind of a blast, let me tell you. Now here we are, back again, this time with talk about the kickboxing-related stuff that went down at RIZIN at the end of the year, we do a full preview of the GLORY 37 Los Angeles card and even bring back the LiverKick Year-End Awards! 

So no, you aren't really going to get fully-fleshed out predictions on these fights, but you'll get us talking about the fighters, where they're at, what we expect to see and why we are excited about each fight. This leads us to having an in-depth discussion about how these one-night, four-man tournaments probably aren't worth doing anymore and how the SuperFight Series has continually been the best part of GLORY events since they signed on with UFC Fight Pass. 

We close out the show with our LiverKick Year-End Awards, which we'll be writing up in more detail for each award over the coming days and week(s). Excuse the fact that I have a pretty nasty head cold and have been running on four hours of sleep for the past few months due to the twins, but such is life. Enjoy.

We've also done away with SoundCloud for the embed since we got a few complaints. Hopefully the embedded player ins't too much of a bummer. The podcast should be showing up on iTunes shortly, I'll insert the link to that when it's up.

Full Card for Tomorrow's W5 KITEK Event Featuring Giorgio Petrosyan

  • Published in Kickboxing

This Saturday in Moscow one of the most-decorated champions of all-time, Giorgio Petrosyan, will head to Russia to leave his mark on the country. The bout will be contested at 71kg against Artem Pashporin for the W5 World Championship. Pashporin is the current world champion and interestingly enough, will be an underdog going into this fight, as just about everyone is against the legendary Petrosyan. But it should be an incredible bout considering Pashporin's recent accomplishments and Petrosyan's return to form since his return to the ring.

Also featured are two other world title fights, at 81kg and 61kg, featuring the 81kg World Champion Alexander Stetsurenko against Vladimir Idranyi and the 61kg World Champion Sergio Wielzen against Timur Nadrov.
