Funny how time tends to get away with us, especially during the holiday season, huh? This weekend is a huge weekend for Kickboxing as GLORY will promote GLORY 13 as well as the Tokyo Super Fight Series event. I know that many are disappointed that in the United States we won't get to enjoy GLORY 13 live, as Spike TV will air the event on tape delay on the 21st here in the United States, but the good news is that if you have fond memories of staying up late to watch Japanese kakutougi you'll be able to do just that for the uber-stacked GLORY SuperFight Series card, which begins at 1:30am Eastern time.
Oh yeah, you can watch it here on LiverKick.com, as well as GLORY 13 if you are outside of the US, Japan and ex-YU nations. If you are in the US you won't be able to order GLORY 13, but you can order the SuperFight Series for $20. Not bad, right? If you are planning on ordering both event and worried about costs, don't worry, we've got you covered. Ordering both events here on LiverKick will get you a cool 50% discount off of the second event, which means $30 for both.Add a comment
A bit of a streak of bad luck struck K-1, who has split the K-1 World MAX Final 8 into two upcoming events, this weekend as both Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl were forced to pull out from the December 28th event in Foshan, China. Souwer, who was ready to go, suffered from a bout of appendicitis late last week which forced him into the hospital where they had to perform a routine but emergency surgical procedure to remove the troubled organ. Souwer is resting comfortably and healing up but will not be ready in time for either event, so he has had to pull out. Enriko Kehl fought Buakaw Banchamek last weekend and received a rather nasty cut on his forehead which will not be healed up in time for December 28th.
So the fight between Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl will obviously not happen, but that doesn't mean that all hope is lost. Oh no. K-1 has been prepared in case of such an emergency and was quick to do some shuffling, as Shane Campbell will now be fighting on the December 28th event against the winner of the Reserve bout from September, Christopher Mena. That left Maximo Suarez without an opponent, which, yes, you figured it out, his new opponent is Enriko Kehl.
So that means that the awesome fight between Shane Campbell and Maximo Suarez won't happen, but who knows, there is always next round, right?Add a comment
SuperKombat's 2013 World Grand Prix season will come to its natural climax this weekend as the SuperKombat World Grand Prix Final in Galati is this Saturday, December 21st. SuperKombat will hold the final tournament of their World Grand Prix featuring four Heavyweights, there will be two Champions crowned for both Cruiserweight and Super Cruiserweight with a Stoica brother in each fight. Also on the card will be some SuperKombat mainstays, such as a Super Heavyweight bout featuring Alexandru Lungu as well as two very interesting Heavyweight bouts; Benjamin Adegbuyi vs. Pavel Zhuravlev and Raul Catinas vs. Paul Slowinski.
The event starts at 3PM Eastern time and can be viewed outside of Europe via Epicentre.tv.
When Nathan "Carnage" Corbett made his GLORY debut at GLORY 11 Chicago against Tyrone Spong there were high hopes among seasoned Kickboxing and Muay Thai fans as Nathan Corbett has been tearing up opponents at Light Heavyweight for years now, but mostly in Australia. He's been the guy that everyone has wanted to switch over to Kickboxing for years, but honestly, his few stints into Heavyweight Kickboxing didn't bear fruit. With GLORY promoting more weight classes it seemed like a perfect fit, the only problem was he ran into Tyrone Spong in the prime of his fighting career and things didn't work out for him.
Carnage came back with a vengeance this weekend at Total Carnage IV from Gold Coast where he met Henriques Zowa from the Netherlands. How did it go? Well, it's Carnage and he's allowed to throw elbows. Carnage scored a stoppage via an elbow strike in the second round.Add a comment
Enfusion Live are doing some cool things in Europe of late, which is always a good thing to hear, by putting on some really entertaining cards with some up-and-coming names in the Kickboxing and Muay Thai world. The only real shame is that they are kind of hard to catch if you are outside of Western Europe, but you can't fault them for that, right? If you are starving for some Enfusion Live action check out this highlight from their recent December 1st event which featured some pretty awesome looking fights.Add a comment
