Time to Give Back: Help UK Fighter Kevin Harper Out

Harper and Vinny
Kevin Harper (top right) with Vinny Shoreman

So the whole Kickboxing and Muay Thai community around the world is a bit fractured and strange sometimes, but there are always good reasons to come together and bond and right now seems like one of those moments. I was talking earlier with a guy that most of you know pretty well, Vinny Shoreman, formerly the color commentator on It's Showtime and has also done work with K-1, Yokkao, LEGEND, Enfusion and more. Vinny is a guy that has been around the UK Kickboxing and Muay Thai scene and become an important figure and he's looking to do something good for the community, something which I completely support.

You might know the name of Kevin Harper, you might not, it depends on how much you've paid attention to the Kickboxing and Muay Thai scene out there. Harper has been doing some tremendous work over in the UK as a fighter, trainer and promoter, but things haven't been smooth sailing for Harper. Harper and his son, Oliver, have just gone through what has to be one of the worst nightmares imaginable, as Kevin's wife has lost her long battle to cancer. This leaves Kevin in an awful spot and Oliver without a mother, something that no child should have to endure.

Kevin is going through a lot right now and the next few years are not going to be an easier for him, so it's time for the community to give back. It doesn't matter where you are from, which style of fighting you prefer or who your favorite fighter is in this case, this is just someone from our community who is going through one of the most difficult times in his life. Vinny is going to be taking collections to help Kevin out, maybe even send him and his son on a vacation to try to get their minds off of this. So please consider giving back, even if it is just a little bit. You can reach Vinny at; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Tyrone Spong has already offered up his gloves from his upcoming bout with Nathan Corbett to the highest bidder, with the proceeds going to Kevin.

Thanks.

SUPERKOMBAT Teams with Festival dell'Oriente

SK

So SUPERKOMBAT's Eduard Irimia has decided to pay some homage to the world of traditional martial arts with this year's Festival dell'Oriente in Italy. Think of this festival as, well, a huge martial arts festival that will have over 5,000 martial artists from 113 countries competing for a world championship. How SUPERKOMBAT fits in is that on the third day of the festival they will host SUPERKOMBAT New Heroes: Asia vs. the Rest of the World.

The entire Festival dell'Oriente event is based around amateur competition and SUPERKOMBAT is looking to establish itself not only as a professional sports league, but one that is in tune with culture, martial arts and history. SUPERKOMBAT's New Heroes event will also be the only professional sporting event held at the Festival dell'Oriente and will be broadcast to all of SUPERKOMBAT's media partners around the world.

It's an interesting concept and it's cool to see SUPERKOMBAT being involved with something that is connected with the roots of the sport like that.

Check Out Can't Stop Crazy's Family Business Vol. 1

CSC

Can't Stop Crazy isn't really a fight team, exactly, just like it isn't just a way of mind. Can't Stop Crazy is sort of a collective within the West Coast Muay Thai scene that features some of the best muay thai fighters in the country who are just friends with each other and look to help each other out. So when they all converged upon one location to help prepare for fights something cool happens, which was captured on video by Jeff Dojillo, and we will be happy to share with you on here.

Kevin Ross is preparing for a fight in Lion Fight come the end of September and Joe Schilling is preparing for the GLORY 10 Los Angeles Middleweight tournament, so both men will have their hands full come the end of September. Check out this video below.
