Glory World Series Press Conference and Weigh-Ins Video

  • Published in Kickboxing

If for some reason you were like me, that means that you were sleeping a few hours ago when the Glory World Series live presser went down. That is kind of a bummer, as it was live on YouTube for the whole world to watch, in English, and hosted by none other than Mauro Ranallo. Lucky for us who enjoy sleeping, the internet is a marvelous thing and it was archived. This means you can watch it at your leisure as you get hyped up for what is one of the biggest kickboxing weekends in a very long time.

What is important when watching this video is to note just how far Glory has come. This press conference was uber professional and exactly what you'd expect from a worldwide combat sports brand working its way to the top.

Don't forget to watch the Glory World Series live this Saturday morning at 10:00am Eastern time/7:00am Pacific time. If you are worried about where to watch it, well, never fear, as you don't have to leave the comfort of your chosen web browser or even leave this very site. Just load up this page right now and order the video by clicking on it and plonking down $15 USD. Seriously, if you don't have a problem buying multiple UFC PPVs a year to fund Dana White's Bruce Lee t-shirt collection, this should be no sweat. Help out Glory and help out LiverKick, by doing so you will help me expand my own Bruce Lee t-shirt collection, which as of right now is a lone shirt. I have to beat Dana White in this category guys, and you can help.

Lion Fight 18 Competes For Your Time on Friday Night

  • Published in Muay Thai

This Friday night is pretty much unprecedented for Lion Fight. Usually when they are running events they are clear of most competition. There might be a minor Bellator card here and there, but it’s usually nothing of consequence. This time around, well, things are a bit different. On September 5th combat sports fans are treated to an onslaught of programming that means that inevitably, only one event can be watched at a time. You can DVR what you want to watch later, for sure, but three events at the same time? Some DVRs aren’t even capable of such feats. 

This Friday we get to see the first real event from Bellator that will have his fingerprints all over it. Cokertor will finally make its debut with a card featuring King Mo Lawal against GLORY kickboxer Dustin Jacoby. The Bellator Featherweight Champinoship is on the line in a rematch betweeen Patricio Pitbull and Pat Curran, then you have both Cheick Kongo and Bobby Lashley in action. This is probably one of the bigger Bellator events that we’ve ever seen on free TV, at least since they canceled that PPV and moved the show to Spike. 

Then, on the other side of the spectrum, we have the UFC. The UFC goes down the street from Bellator to Foxwoods in Connecticut with what is a really stacked card for hardcore fans on free TV. The main event is Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi, a rematch from 2008. Then you have 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion and former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem against Ben Rothwell, which is an awesome fight. Add in Matt Mitrione and Joe Lauzon into the mix and you have an appealing free card for fight fans.

This is a lot of direct competition for Lion Fight this weekend. A lot. 

The Lion Fight Middleweight Championship is on the line as champion Yodsanklai Fairtex will square off against the game challenger that is Salah Khalifa from the UK. Then you have all-around bad ass Jason Andrada taking on Stan Mancebo in a bout that should feature excitement from beginning to end. Those are just the top two fights. The rest of the card is bound to provide quite a bit of excitement. In fact, to date, Lion Fight has yet to put on an event that would come anywhere close to considered dull. 

Nick Chasteen vs. Jose Palacios is another fight that you might not recognize their names unless you follow American muay thai and kickboxing closely, but this fight has the potential to be one of the better bouts of the night -- that’s across all three events -- and all you gotta do is tune in. Lion Fight has yet to disappoint and on Friday will have a lot of competition, but this fact alone, that Lion Fight has never disappointed, is reason enough to say that the rest can wait.

Dzevad Poturak Announces Retirement

  • Published in Kickboxing

Poturak

Bosnian Heavyweight Kickboxer Dzevad Poturak has released a statement today announcing his retirement from the sport of Kickboxing at the age of 35. Poturak, who has competed in K-1, It's Showtime, SuperKombat and most recently Final Fight, will fight one last time at Final Fight 07, which is scheduled for September. Poturak's record currently stands at 50-22-1-1, with notable wins over Sergei Laschenko, Wendel Roche and Daniel Ghita under his belt.

Poturak had a strong showing at the K-1 World Grand Prix in March where he defeated Laschenko in a reserve bout and was called to fill in for an injured Badr Hari. Poturak was actually injured himself at the time, but opted to head to the ring and fight, putting forth a valiant effort against Ismael Londt. His most recent bout was at Final Fight 06 where he lost to Igor Jurkovic.

His retirement bout is slated for September 6th in Sarajevo under the Final Fight banner. Everyone here at LiverKick wishes Poturak well in his retirement.

Behold: Kevin Ross and Andy Souwer Sparring

  • Published in K-1

In the kickboxing and muay thai worlds there are sometimes some strange separations that exist. That seems to be the case with the American muay thai community and the European kickboxing scene. Well, Andy Souwer put on a seminar in California last month, and believe it or not, this means he met with American muay thai fighter Kevin Ross. So Ross and Souwer did some sparring and if you are a fan of both, it is quite awesome to watch.

Vinny Shoreman Hosting K-1 Open Tryouts

  • Published in K-1

ShoremanWhen Glory purchased It's Showtime, it did mean that the Kickboxing world was becoming partially united once again, but for commentators Vinny "Showtime" Shoreman and Kieran Keddle, it meant that their positions might be in a bit of limbo. We've been petitioning on Twitter for Shoreman and Keddle to keep their jobs, but it looks like we might be seeing them again soon, Shoreman at least. Of course, they will be doing the It's Showtime event in Tenerife, Spain, but on top of that, Vinny Shoreman will be in Los Angeles for K-1's Open Tryouts, serving as the host.

Sadly, Kieran was busy, but having Vinny there shows that K-1 is looking to secure some of the people that fans know and love. Shoreman is one of the few commentators in the sport whose pure love and passion for the sport comes across in every single event, much like Michael "The Voice" Schiavello. We very much look forward to hearing Shoreman at future events and hope that if he does begin working for K-1, that Kieran Keddle will join him as well, as they make for a very good team that many have grown very accustomed to and grown to love.
