Enriko Kehl Continues to Rise with a Spinning Elbow KO at Thailand vs. Europe 2013

If there's anyone flying under the radar in the 70 kg weight division, it's Enriko Kehl. The twenty year old German sensation put on some seriously impressive performances during 2012, including a KO win over Nonsai at last year's Thailand vs. Europe, as well as a collection of Tatneft victories. Kehl came into Thailand vs. Europe 2013 off a hotly disputed loss to Dzhabar Askerov. Keep in mind Askerov went on to defeat Any Souwer at Yokkao 2013 not long later, so this should give you an idea of exactly how good Kehl is, or has the potential to be. Last night he took to the ring again against Berneung Topking Boxing, who himself was coming off a loss. Berneung may not be in his prime of his life, but he still has the ability to put solid wins together. 

Kelh demonstrated why we at Liverkick are excited about this kid. After a relatively even first two round, Kehl threw a right elbow, which Beneung dodged, and continued the rotation into a second spinning elbow, catching the Thai flush on the jaw and sending him to the canvas in a crumpled heap. Medics immediately rushed into the ring to revive him, and he was still unable to stand when Kehl's victory was announced. I think Enriko would make a great addition to any big-name league, whether it be Kickboxing or Muay Thai. He can go places.

Also on the card, Phuket Top Team's Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn faced perpetual journeyman Steeve Valente, and ended his night with a TKO elbow victory midway through Round 3. "The Black Sniper" Marco Pique failed to rebound from a loss to Raphael Llodra, losing a unanimous decision to Suriya Prasathinpimai. In the surprise of the night, Christophe Provost won a decision victory against Changpuek Sor KeawSuek, who had most recently won back-to-back victories in the Korea MAX tournament, and Thai Fight 2013.

W5 Slovakia: Nabiev, Sichtman Win Tournaments

W5 held their second event of the year yesterday, branching outside of Russia to Bratislava, Slovakia where they held two tournaments to crown two new champions. The two tournaments consisted of four fighters each and took place at 71kg and 75kg respectively, with the winners becoming W5 champions.

At 71kg, the field was set up with Hysni Beqiri vs. Vladimir Konsky and Alim Nabiev vs. Tevfik Sucu. Beqiri vs. Konsky was up first and was a non-stop fight. Beqiri hit Konsky with everything including the kitchen sink but Konsky still managed to valiantly fight back for the entire fight. Konsky had the more diverse attack while Beqiri, outside of a few kicks, only threw punches, seemingly trying to save his legs for the final. Beqiri was awarded a unanimous decision but couldn't continue to the finals due to injury, so Konsky moved on to the finals despite the loss.

The other 71kg semi final saw 18 year old Alim Nabiev put in another clinical performance as he schooled Tevfik Sucu and moved on to the finals with a unanimous decision win.

At 75kg, the semi finals saw Vladimir Moravcik fight Artem Litvinenko and Remy Bonjasky pupil Darryl Sichtman fight Konstantin Serebrennikov. Litvinenko hung with Moravcik for a short period of time, but eventually Moravcik took over by the second round and stopped Litvinenko with body punches, moving on to the final. In the other semi final, Serebrennikov was competitive with Sichtman, but it was the two knockdowns Sichtman scored that sealed the fight for him. Sichtman would land some perfectly placed and timed punches that sent Serebrennikov down.

So with the finals set, Alim Nabiev faced Vladimir Konsky at 71kg. It was almost identical to Nabiev's semi final fight, as he schooled Konsky over three rounds and was never close to being in danger. Nabiev won a unanimous decision and earned himself the W5 71kg title.

In the 75kg final, it was another action packed fight between Darryl Sichtman and Vladimir Moravcik. Moravcik was the much more experienced fighter and had much bigger names on his resume, but Sichtman overcame that and had Moravcik seemingly out on his feet at the end of the third round, and damaged from repeated low kicks. After three rounds the judges declared an extra round but Moravcik was unable to continue, therefore giving the win to Darryl Sichtman. Sichtman got the biggest win of his career to date and became the W5 75kg champion.

K-1 World Grand Prix 2013 Live Results

K-1

It is finally upon us -- the time for the K-1 World Grand Prix to go down. You can purchase your live stream at K-1's site for $20 and it starts at 3PM Eastern Time (in under an hour). All of the fighters have made weight and are ready to go. The Finals look like this;

Reserve: Sergeii Laschenko vs. Dzevad Poturak - The first round was a close one, with both fighters being quite even, but Poturak landing the cleaner shots. The second round is more of the same with Laschenko starting to gas out and Poturak getting off some more clean shots, not doing much damage, but winning. Round 3 saw Poturak control the fight even more, he ran away with this one.

Winner: Dzevad Poturak

Catalin Morosanu vs. Pavel Zhuravlev - Morosanu comes in like Morosanu with crazy hooks, very aggressive. Zhuravlev is able to weather most of the storm without much damage. Second round sees a lot of the same, but Zhuravlev is able to catch Morosanu a few times and opens up a cut above the eye. Round 3 sees a lot of the same, with Morosanu being a little more tentative and picking his shots. Not a pretty fight. Zhuravlev was landing the cleaner shots.

Winner: Pavel Zhuravlev

Mirko Cro Cop vs. Jarrell Miller - Tough first round for both guys. Cro Cop went for some of his patented kicks, but they were all blocked. Miller worked some leg kicks and landed some decent punches from the clinch. Second round was all Miller with clinch knees and uppercuts. Cro Cop is gassing out, but, this is Croatia. Third round is more of the same, Miller landing the cleaner shots and being the clear aggressor. Annnnd Croatian judges give the fight to Cro Cop.

Winner: Mirko Cro Cop

Badr Hari vs. Zabit Samedov - Badr looks calm and collected, drops Samedov early. He lands a low blow and Samedov looks dead. Literally something happened at the end of the round and no one knows what, but Samedov had Hari rocked, there was no count and Hari kind of dropped Samedov but it didn't count? I don't know. Samedov landed some big bombs, Badr got a counter. Badr got a bit of a rest for a bloody nose, I don't even know. Hari with an assault on Samedov in R3 but jumps on him instead, then he hits him a few more times and the ref calls the count. Badr then runs away the rest of the round while Samedov taunts him to hit him. Just a weird, surreal fight.

Winner: Badr Hari

Ismael Londt vs. Hesdy Gerges - Londt went full force with Hesdy defending as well as he always does. One would guess his tactic was to let Londt gas. Londt slows down a bit in Round 2, Hesdy starts opening up a bit more, but Londt still controlling the ring. Londt continues to swarm Hesdy and lands a flying knee that breaks Hesdy's nose and Hesdy calls the fight.

Winner: Ismael Londt

Xi Chuang def. Samo Petje - Entertaining scrap, absolutely the best fight of the event thus far.

Emil Zoraj def. Giannis Sofokleus - Well, this was an interesting fight. Giannis took the fight on something like 12 hours notice and still really took it to Emil, but Emil was able to edge him out in the end.

Semi-Finals: Pavel Zhuravlev vs. Mirko Cro Cop - Missed most of this as the stream went down. The PPV went down as well, that is, the PPV never worked and everyone was accessing it for free so K-1 shut it down. Even those who paid can't figure out how to get it to work. Cro Cop won.

Winner: Mirko Cro Cop

An announcement is made that Badr Hari has broken his foot and will be replaced by Dzevad Poturak. Poturak is not in the arena, though, so they need to push one of the Superfights up to give them time to tell him.

Jason Wilnis def. Toni Milanovic - Wilnis looked great, demolished Milanovic in the first round, big knockout.

Semi-Finals: Dzevad Poturak vs. Ismael Londt - Londt looked great but Poturak held his own. Poturak fought well but a kick to the midsection broke his rib and he calls it quits in the second round.

Winner: Ismael Londt

Agron Preteni def. Andrei Stoica  - This fight was all Stoica, at least it should have been, until Preteni dropped him and really turned the tide of the fight. From that point on it was Preteni's fight.

Mladen Brestovic def. Frank Munoz  - Tough fight for Munoz who really just seems to not be able to find the right weight class. Brestovic was simply the better man tonight.

K-1 World Grand Prix Finals: Mirko Cro Cop vs. Ismael Londt - Londt was controlling things early on, but a left high kick knockdown in R2 by Cro Cop sealed the victory for him.

Winner: Mirko Cro Cop
