The K-1 World MAX 2013 Final 16 is rapidly approaching, going down on September 14th in Palma de Mallorca, Spain with a few big names tacked onto tournament and qualifying bout winners from this year. It makes for an interesting yet odd blend of names, which have now been put into fights! We've been waiting for these, so it is nice to see them laid out finally. The big match-ups are Andy Souwer vs. Yasuhiro Kid, Mike Zambidis vs. Elam Ngor and Buakaw Banchamek vs. David Calvo, but there are some interesting fights on there as well like Henri Van Opstal vs. Enriko Kehl.
So, let's get on with it already, right?
LiverKick will be hosting the internet PPV for the K-1 World MAX 2013 Final 16, so you won't even have to leave your favorite Kickboxing site to watch the event! Stay tuned for more details shortly.Add a comment

For the past few years, names like Buakaw Por Pramuk, Giorgio Petrosyan and Yodsaenklai Fairtex have been the talk of the kickboxing town, with British Muay Thai fighters like Jordan Watson and Iman Barlow also making massive waves in the stand-up circuit. The sport has undoubtedly been growing in recent years, evident through avenues like The Contender Asia and K-1 Max as well as the expansion of mixed martial arts and the increasing exposure of its exciting strikers like Anderson Silva and Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic.
Despite winning his first WMC world title at 19 against the experienced Ying Yai, as well as defeating the legendary ‘John’ Wayne Parr – arguably the most popular Western Muay Thai fighter to grace the ring – back in 2006, the UK’s Stephen Wakeling has remained relatively low key. In the last five years you can count the number of bouts he’s had on one hand, and with a record of just over 40 professional fights, the Epsom-born Thai boxer hasn’t had nearly half the amount of experience in the ring as most of his contemporaries.Add a comment
SUPERKOMBAT has an interesting stable of fighters at its disposal, guys like Benjamin Adegbuyi, Bogdan and Andrei Stoica, Catalin Morosanu, Raul Catinas and Sebastien Ciobanu. While lots of promoters force fighters into exclusive contracts, Eduard Irimia would like to make it clear that fighters under the employ of SUPERKOMBAT are not held to those kinds of restrictions. In fact, he encourages fighters under the SK banner to gain experience outside of the SUPERKOMBAT organization.
In the article, which was posted to Romanian luptatorii.ro, Irimia talks about his "gentlemen's agreement" with Pierre Andurand and GLORY, stating that they are not rivals and that he would be happy to send some of his fighters to GLORY. There is also a brief mention that Irimia would allow fighters to fight for K-1 as well.Add a comment
If you're like me, commentary matters to you when you watch fights. For GLORY, who will soon be making a big splash on American audiences by debuting on Spike TV. According to our old friend Fraser, that will begin with GLORY 10 Los Angeles, which is good news indeed, but the question of commentary team is still a big one for fans. While Stephen Quadros has been a mainstay for GLORY, his broadcast partner has shifted a few times now without there really being a good fit between a myriad of broadcast partners, but it looks like luck will change. Duke Roufus, the trainer from Roufus Sport who is responsible for such talents as new UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis and a staggering amount of other top level talent will be providing the color commentary when GLORY makes their Spike TV debut.
So, if you are in the area and haven't gotten your tickets already, you should probably consider doing so, and if you'll be at home watching it on Spike TV, you'll be glad to have a knowledgeable team in control of the broadcast. The full card can be viewed here.Add a comment
