K-1 MAX Madrid Show This Weekend

  • Published in K-1

Here's a show announcement that kind of snuck up out of nowhere - this weekend in Madrid, Spain will be a regional K-1 MAX show.  The show is being put on by K-1 MAX Madrid, and will feature a traditional 8 man tournament.  These kind of regional events are not out of the ordinary for K-1, who brand many smaller, local shows as K-1 shows.  While these shows are affiliated with K-1, they are typically not a part of the official K-1 season - meaning don't expect mention of this event on the K-1 website, or for the tournament winner to automatically enter the GP Final 16.

The biggest name in the tournament is definitely Warren Stevelmans.  A K-1 MAX veteran who won the MAX 2008 Netherlands tournament, Stevelmans has been in there with the division's very best, including Andy Souwer, Giorgio Petrosyan, and Albert Kraus among many others.  He fights often, and almost always against tough competition, so his record only stands at 4-5 in the last 2 years, but those loses all come against tough opposition.  I would consider him the favorite in this field.

Stevelmans's toughest challenger here is likely Rachid Belaini, who comes in off a huge win over the top 25 ranked Khem Sitsonpeenong at It's Showtime in September.  If Belaini can keep that momentum going, he can definitely win this event and use that victory as the start of a big 2011.

Also in the tournament are WBC champion Alex Asumu; Hassan Ait Bassou, a good fighter making the move up to 70kg from his normal 63kg weight; Jonay Risco; Manzy Pauwels, a Muay Thai fighter who won a similar regional tournament in 2009; Rafa Del Toro; and Rafi Zohueir, a Muay Thai fighter who was slated to represent Spain on the ill-fated The Contender Asia Season 2.

LiverKick Throwback: Peter Cunningham Takes the Fight to Dida Diafat in Paris in 1992

  • Published in Kickboxing

The world of kickboxing has a rich history to fall back upon so we here at LiverKick figure, why not? Why not give a glimpse into some of the fights from the past that have made up this wonderful sport and tie it all in to the present. The kids on the Instagram and Twitter like to call Thursdays "Throwback Thursdays," I'm just going to say that this is a LiverKick Throwback.

This time we are going back before even the days of K-1, we are going back to a time when fighters were men and they fought for twelve rounds and beat the snot out of each other. Basically, we are going back to 1992. This was November 21st, 1992 in Paris, France and it was between two world-class fighters at the time; France's Dida Diafat and Canada's Peter "Sugarfoot" Cunningham for the ISKA World Light Welterweight Championship contested under ISKA's "Oriental Rules."

Cunningham might be before the time of some fans now, but it's worth reflecting upon a guy who fought some of the best in the world while representing North America (Canadian, but has resided in Southern California for quite a few years now). Cunningham would fight Diafat in 1996 in what would be his retirement fight, but continues to work as a trainer to this day when he isn't busy in acting, most recently appearing in The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.

Rumor has it that he'll be in attendance this weekend for GLORY 17 and Last Man Standing, so be on the lookout.

Watch Pavel Zhuravlev vs. Sebastien Van Thielan from SuperKombat WGP III

  • Published in Video

Romania's SuperKombat has decidedly stood out over the year, coming from the Local Kombat shows of years past and building their own World Grand Prix tournament that stretches over multiple qualifying tournaments. While the level of talent within the qualifying tournaments is not great, the winners coming out are without a doubt top notch, including Sergeii Laschenko, Ismael Londt and now Pavel Zhuravlev. Zhuravlev is a guy that you might not know a lot about, outside of his lone K-1 fight which was against Gokhan Saki where he actually defeated Gokhan Saki in a Superfight by Unanimous Decision. Since then he has yet to appear in K-1 again, but the truth is, when he does he will be a force to be dealt with. His specialty over the past few years has been winning tournaments, it seems, not on the big world stage like K-1, but still really solid wins in tournaments, and it was no surprise when he took the SuperKombat WGP III by storm. Don't weigh against him for the loss to Igor Jurkovic at Utlimate Glory in May, that is one of only 6 career losses.

Video is from our good friends at Gladiatorium.ro.
