Dzevad Poturak Announces Retirement

Poturak

Bosnian Heavyweight Kickboxer Dzevad Poturak has released a statement today announcing his retirement from the sport of Kickboxing at the age of 35. Poturak, who has competed in K-1, It's Showtime, SuperKombat and most recently Final Fight, will fight one last time at Final Fight 07, which is scheduled for September. Poturak's record currently stands at 50-22-1-1, with notable wins over Sergei Laschenko, Wendel Roche and Daniel Ghita under his belt.

Poturak had a strong showing at the K-1 World Grand Prix in March where he defeated Laschenko in a reserve bout and was called to fill in for an injured Badr Hari. Poturak was actually injured himself at the time, but opted to head to the ring and fight, putting forth a valiant effort against Ismael Londt. His most recent bout was at Final Fight 06 where he lost to Igor Jurkovic.

His retirement bout is slated for September 6th in Sarajevo under the Final Fight banner. Everyone here at LiverKick wishes Poturak well in his retirement.

So Jaideep Singh Made His MMA Debut Today

Jaideep

It seems to be slow lately, like really slow. GLORY 9 New York is indeed coming up and K-1 has a show this weekend in Calgary, but outside of that, it has been a bit of a deadzone for Kickboxing the past few weeks. Apparently Jaideep Singh knew that and decided to make his MMA debut for Super Fight League out of India. Super Fight League debuted with a lot of hype, glitz and a really funny theme song because the inevitable scaling back into much smaller, more manageable events featuring up-and-coming fighters and not Bob Sapp.

So one of those fighters is Jaideep Singh, best known from K-1 and GLORY. He made his MMA debut today, which you can watch on their YouTube channel.

Jaideep's debut was successful, with Alireza Tavak tapping to strikes. Yes, someone tapped to Jaideep's strikes.

Albert Kraus Back in Boxing on Saturday

Albert Kraus had his first foray into professional boxing back in September, when he stopped Mubariz Abdulayev (not Valentin Cimpoeru as listed on BoxRec) in Holland, which can be seen in the video above. Kraus will be back in the boxing ring this Saturday in England on the card headlined by James Degale vs. Stjepan Bozic.

He'll face a Welsh fighter by the name of Joe Jones. Jones holds a record of 0-10 and has been stopped five times. Needless to say, expect Kraus to roll here. Along with Rico Verhoeven and Daniel Ghita, he at times trains with Tyson Fury at the Super Pro Sportscenter and from that seems to have also conjured up a relationship with Fury's promoter, Hennessy Sports, who are staging the event.

Last time out in kickboxing, Kraus was stopped in the second round by Andy Ristie at GLORY 8, which took place on May 4 from Tokyo, Japan.
