Samedov vs Morosanu Fight Video

Zabit Samedov defeated Catalin Morosanu yesterday on the Akhmat Fight show in Grozny. It was easy to tell from just the entrance that Morosanu was not in the shape he usually is. He pulled out of his fight with SuperKombat last month due to a herniated disk in his neck but then accepted this fight just a month later. I'm sure Akhmat paid Morosanu well to convince him to fight even though he was injured and probably hadn't trained. Samedov did his job and did it well, avoiding Morasanu's early hail mary barrage and then catching him with a well timed knee to the solar plexus. I hope Catalin Morosanu can get his neck taken care of and we can see him back in top form again soon.

Here is the video so you can all see for yourselves.

Krush 68 Fight Card

Krush 68 takes place tonight in Nagoya, Japan at the Nagoya Congress Center. The card will air live on Abema.tv if you are "IN" Japan, it wont be on their sports channel this time but on their designated fight channel which is shown by some Japanese kanji symbols. Aside from the great talent and usual crazy fights Krush always gives us this card as a special exhibition between Kaew Weerasakreck the K-1 65kgs champ and Takeru the K-1 55kgs champ. The fight is 3x2min rounds, I wonder how hard they will actually go. Hopefully its the type of exhibition that Masato and Kid Yamamoto had where Kid got dropped multiple times.

Hayabusa's New Glory Gloves

If you are a Glory fan then you have noticed the change in gloves since they switched from Leone to Hayabusa. Now I've been to a decent amount of the Glory events with my brother and got to talk to fighters and feel the gloves first hand. The overall consensus on the Hayabusa gloves has not been good at all. The comment I was hearing most of all was about the size, the gloves were simply too big and it was effecting the excitement of the cards as knockouts were not happening anymore. So myself and a few others took to twitter and made a few complaints expecting them to fall on deaf ears but we were wrong. Hayabusa took our complaints seriously and emailed me to let me know they were changing their gloves for upcoming events and they would send me a pair to take a look at. 

Here is a comparison picture, Top picture is old gloves, bottom picture is new gloves. You can start by looking at the length on his forearm, secondly just the overall shape of the glove. I have never seen a glove shaped like the first gloves, the new ones are more what we are used to. I will say the new gloves are very small, I'm not positive how the big heavyweights are going to fit their hands in them as we had trouble putting our hands in when wrapped but I can guarantee more knockouts with these. With these gloves the women will have the power to finish fights much more easily as they are just much more compact for the punch and it makes it harder to cover up. It was great of Hayabusa to look out for the fighters safety with the first gloves but in the end they are being used for a fight, fighting is not necessarily safe and if you take the danger out of it the fans will lose interest.

I am 100% happier with these gloves, I feel Hayabusa did a great job taking everyone's criticism and made a glove everyone will be happy with. I wanted a fighters opinion as well, so Josh wore them and bashed a few things and liked them a lot more than the previous gloves he had fought with, he did agree that they are very small but he had a big smile on his face while he said it.

Kunlun Fight 51 & 52 Fight Card

After a stacked Kunlun Fight 50 on August 20th they will have Kunlun Fight 51 and 52 on Sept 10 and 11 in Fuzhou, China. Now the events aren't as stacked as Kunlun Fight 50 but there are some very interesting match ups including the return of Marc De Bonte to kickboxing, Hicham El Gaoui's Kunlun Debut, Andrei Herasimchuk in a heavyweight tournament and a 65kgs tournament. Adding Marc De Bonte and Hicham El Gaoui to the 80kgs division makes things very interesting.

Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven Last Fight Comparison & Videos

Since Glory has confirmed Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven for December its time to talk about this fight. We will start by comparing their latest fights even though Rico will have one more fight before December, which is a title defense against Anderson "Braddock" Silva.

By the time December rolls around Badri Hari will have inactive for 1 year and 4 months, his last fight against Ismael Londt in Grozny, Russia was in August 2015. Now everyone has different opinions on ring rust but I strongly believe that for an active kickboxer it is very important to fight more often than this. Badr has lots of wars under his belt so who knows how his body is doing these days, but no matter how old or inactive Hari still has crazy KO power that comes from strange angles, no matter who it is if Badr lands a clean punch or kick they can be in for a short night. Here is the video of Badr Hari's last fight, he won but he definitely didn't look sharp nonetheless still and exciting fight.

Rico Verhoeven apart from one minor setback against Gerasimchuk has looked really unstoppable lately. He has improved greatly and is continuing to do so. The problem is that the heavyweight division is nothing like it used to be, back in K-1 GP days every year there were so many amazing heavyweights that it was a toss up who was going to win the tournament. Now that most of those guy have retired no one has really taken their place which leaves Rico in a shallow division. At the moment I don't really see anyone that can challenge him skill wise but with heavyweights anyone can land that KO punch or kick and Rico has been knocked out before. Rico wants to make sure to stay active before his fight with Badr so even though he already fought in March of this year, he will be defending his title in September which in my opinion is a little dangerous but that is his choice. Ricos last fight against Mladen Brestovac wasn't his best performance but he showed how good his cardio is, which is a big thing in the heavyweight division, also his leg kicks are nasty. One thing Rico is constantly criticized about is his lack of KO power and boring fights, well Badr Hari has never had a boring fight so I don't think we will have to worry about that this time around.

Kunlun Fight 49 x Rebels.45 Results

Kunlun Fight 49 X REBELS.45 took place last night in Tokyo Japan. Seems as though it was a little bit of China vs Japan where china made sure to bring up that they won 4-2. The fight I was most interested about was Albert Kraus vs HINATA, Hinata won a Unanimous decision and Kraus really did not look good, I can't help but think age and all the wars hes been in is taking its toll.

Morosanu Injured, Out of Fight This Weekend.

Sadly, this is the fight game, Catalin Morosanu is not the type of guy to pull out of a fight for any small thing so as he posted on his facebook he has been advised by doctors that he has a Herniated Disc that requires surgery. He seems truly upset about not being able to represent his country and make his fans proud but assures he will be back and give it his all. We wish Catalin Morosanu all the best, a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him fight again soon.
