Mike Zambidis to Defend SuperKombat Title Plus More SK 2015 Details

  • Published in Kickboxing

Mike Zambidis captured the SuperKombat Middleweight Championship back in August of 2013 against Harun Kina in Romania and now in January he is set to defend that title for the very first time in a return match. At an Iron Challenge 2015 event in Greece Zambidis is set to defend that title against Kina. If you are wondering why it isn't on a SuperKombat card proper, that's because 2015 will be the year that SuperKombat begins licensing out their brand to interested partners.

Previously they would license out tryout events, but starting this year they will also license out Elimination and World Title fights. The SuperKombat season begins on March 7th with their first event of this season, but look for more events held around the world with fights that impact the world of SuperKombat throughout the year. We'll have more on SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis when it's available.

SuperKombat's 2011 Awards

  • Published in Kickboxing

Without a doubt, 2011 has been the year that promotions outside of K-1 have stepped up, big time. This includes Romanian promoter Eduard Irimia's SuperKombat. It felt like it came out of nowhere, but came out of a network of local events promoted within Romania successfully by Irimia over the years to build to the formation of SuperKombat. SuperKombat held a World Grand Prix for Heavyweights this year in a world where the only other promotion doing a big Heavyweight tournament was Fight Code. Errol Zimmerman walked away with the SuperKombat One Night WGP, while Sergei Laschenko won the World Grand Prix Championship this year while Vitali Akhramenko walked away with the Fight Code championship. To say that this was interesting would be an understatement.

Over the weekend SuperKombat held an awards ceremony to commemorate their first year of existence in Romania. Of course, it is telling that some of the bigger names in Kickboxing were presented with awards in front of a giant screen that read "EDUARD IRIMIA PRODUCTIONS" on it, but I guess being on the cover of Forbes in Romania is a big deal. Outside of some of the beautiful cities all that I know about Romania is what I learned about the prostitutes that died in a crate container on the way into the Baltimore port in season 2 of HBO's "The Wire." So it is safe to say that Irimia is a big deal in his hometown, big enough to have his name on a board.

Knockout of the Year Errol Zimmerman (vs. Roman Kleibl)
Fight of the Year Russian Cornelius vs. Slavo Polugic
Special Fight of the Year Alexandru Longu vs. Bob Sapp
Best Evolution in 2011 Bogdan Stoica
Newcomer of the Year Benjamin Adegbuyi
Most Popular Fighter Catalin Morosanu
2011 SuperKombat WGP Winner - Sergei Laschenko

Superkombat  World Grand Prix Monza: Results

  • Published in Europe

Yesterday in Monza, Italy SuperKombat gave the world the finals of their Light Heavyweight WGP in a night that saw a lot of surprises and confusion. The confusion is rooted in the fact that Cedric Manhoef was unable to attend the event, which was upsetting to the fans in attendance. Then Catalin Morosanu's fight never happened because his opponent, Ron Sparks, fell off the entrance ramp during the pre-fight introductions and injured himself. There was also a mishap with the ring that happened during the event and needed to be tended to. 

The rest of the show scored rave reviews, though.

Ivan Jorge def. Aristote Quitusisa by Decision- Wins Superkombat Light-Heavyweight Title

August 2015 LiverKick Rankings Update

  • Published in Rankings

(C) GLORY Sports International/James Law

It's August heading into September and the time felt right to give the Official LiverKick Rankings an overhaul. There has been movement in quite a few weight classes while some of the others (Light Heavyweight and most of Featherweight) have seen no real movement at all. The first thing to mention is that there was a bit of housecleaning on the rankings, which happens when fighters have been inactive for over 12 months. The two big omissions this round are Daniel Ghita at #3 in Heavyweight and Joseph Valtellini at #2 at Welterweight. Both have been inactive for a year and we were forced to drop them from the rankings. 

For them to be re-included in said rankings can be a long road. That means beating someone else on the top ten or winning a tournament featuring top ten fighters to get back near the top. 

So let's get down to some of these changes then, shall we? Heavyweight has seen some movement, some of which was the removing of Ghita, the rest of due to stuff happening. Jamal Ben Saddik returned from his suspension with a win earlier this year, but not a top ten win. Beating Braddock Silva, though? That's huge and secures him the #4 spot. Jahfarr Wilnis makes his way to the Heavyweight top ten with his Kunlun tournament victory, the win over Gerges front and center. Gerges beat Gerasmichuk, which bumps those two around. Sergei Kharitonov is no longer with GLORY and seems focused on MMA. It hasn't been a year yet but it seems safe to remove him for now. 

No movement at Light Heavyweight for now. Saki was a tough call, but simply leaving GLORY does not disqualify him from the rankings. He had one fight this year which was at Heavyweight, but he's still active. If he plans a full-time move to Heavyweight then he will leave the Light Heavyweight rankings. Middleweight saw very little movement. Sahak Parparyan's poor performance in the A1 World Cup pushed him out in lieu of others and Dmitry Valent makes his debut on the rankings in a tough decision. This is a very tough division to rank and Valent has faced some of the top names in the division and just barely fallen short while picking up wins over everyone else. Bogdan Stoica was considered, but losses to unranked competition sent him to the back of the line. 

Welterweight saw a new GLORY Champion crowned in Nieky Holzken, but he was already the top ranked fighter. Hicham El Gaoui returns after a long absence on the LiverKick rankings with a win over Karapetyan and Bai Jinbin from China earned his way into the number eight slot with a crazy win in Kunlun over Stetsurenko. There was some movement at Lightweight, but most of it makes a lot of sense. Sitthichai won the contender tournament, bumping him up further while everyone else dropped down to accommodate that. Petrosyan might still be the most talented, but neither wins over Varol or Kehl were going to push him up any further. Yodsanklai decides to confuse us even further by competing in Kunlun under kickboxing rules, making him a must-rank fighter. Oh yeah, and Dzhabar Askerov is back after a win over Kehl. Big congratulations go to newcomer to the world rankings in Josh Jauncey for his performance in the GLORY contender tournament.

Featherweight only saw movement within the top three thanks to K-1 Japan's awesome shows. Kaew is back to being king again and Soda drops down to a more comfortable 3.
