Today is a day that just keeps on giving for Kickboxing fans across the world and looks to do some more as SUPERKOMBAT has announced that their New Heroes series will return to Romania on August 30th in Targoviste, the city best known as the home of Vlad Tepes -- also known as Dracula. This is SUPERKOMBAT's first show back after a bit of a summer break, but they do note that they've already run a staggering ten events this year so far.
The participants announced so far are as follows; Amansio Paraschiv (Local Kombat champion -67 kg and two times WAKO amateur european champion), Cristian Milea (Local Kombat champion -71 kg), Danut Hurduc (Local Kombat champion – 91 kg), Claudiu Badoi (Superkombat challenger), Cristian Ristea, Ciprian Schiopu, Stefan Szomoru, Catalin Sacagiu, Flavius Boiciuc and Daniel Lazar.
SUPERKOMBAT will also kick off their World Grand Prix tournament series starting on September 28th.Add a comment
Today is a breakneck big news day, which we here at LiverKick are very okay with. The fight that we've been hearing for GLORY 11 Chicago for a while now has been Australian superstar Nathan Corbett vs. Tyrone Spong, and yes, it is official! On top of that there will also be the rumored Heavyweight Grand Slam Tournament, featuring Daniel Ghita, Anderson "Braddock" Silva, Rico Verhoeven and Gokhan Saki.
This one night, four man tournament will crown the king of the Heavyweight division (with Semmy Schilt retired) and will bring an incredible night of top level competition to the Chicago area. This will crown the new GLORY Heavyweight Champion and do so on US soil airing live on Spike TV! Stay tuned for more updates on GLORY 11, including the rest of the card.Add a comment
K-1 has been promising some big news for a few days now and many have believed it just to be another show, but instead it is the signing of one of the hottest free agents on the market today; Buakaw Banchamek. Buakaw has had some very well-documented problems over the past few years, from Por. Pramuk to Thai Fight, and has found himself unable to fight for whomever he wants. His legal issues have subsided a bit, though, as he found himself once again able to fight for promotions outside of Thai Fight.
Rumors have been circulating that Buakaw would sign with GLORY any day now, with some stating that he'd be fighting Giorgio Petrosyan, some saying that he'd be fighting in GLORY's upcoming Lightweight tournament and others saying that he'd fight for them in 2014 instead. It looks like none of that will happen as Buakaw Banchamek has instead opted to sign with K-1, where he will participate in the upcoming K-1 World MAX Final 16 tournament in September, which goes down in Mallorca, Spain. This is a huge acquisition for K-1 at this pointAdd a comment
This weekend Jerome Le Banner continued his march of dominance over moderately decent competition as he fought against the promising up-and-comer that is Vitaly Akhramenko in France at Fight Night San Tropez. The fight was for the WKN Super Heavyweight Championship, which saw Le Banner stop Akhramenko in the second round in a fight that had a lot of fight fans interested. Akhramenko was a step up from some of the other competition that we've seen Le Banner against and this is a fantastic warm-up for his fight against Sergei Kharitonov at GLORY 10 Los Angeles.
The event also saw Emmanuel Payet defeating Arnold Oborotov by decision for the WKN Light Heavyweight World Title, Vladimir Mineev defeated Thiago Beowulf for the WKN Heavyweight World title and Nicolas Wambas stopping former K-1 great Stefan Leko in the fourth round in a Super Fight. Another highlight for the event was that Sylvester Stallone was in attendance at the event, most likely checking out what Jerome Le Banner does best in his home of France.Add a comment
Take On Productions returned for a third time to Atlantic City, giving Muay Thai fighters and fans from all over a little taste of what it means to be “Jersey Strong” by bringing the fights back to Bally’s Hotel & Casino. Highlights included several full-rules amateur bouts, particularly the first woman’s fight of the night, Jess Ng of Sitan Gym versus Kit Fung of Queens MMA. After a full-rules, five round battle, Ng was the victor by Unanimous Decision, giving her her tenth consecutive win. Dubious judging marred an otherwise great showing in the main event which featured Omar Estevez of Sitan Gym versus a very cocky Christopher Williams of Pound 4 Pound MMA. After some flagrant showboating in the first round, Williams fought a close fight with Estevez, and took a controversial win by Unanimous Decision, which was met with loud booing from the crowd.
