Kickfighting in 2012 is getting kicked off in Italy in a big way this Saturday, January 21st in Milan. Yokkao Boxing is putting on a huge event, Yokkao Extreme, that features some of the top worldwide talent in both Kickboxing and Muay Thai. Featuring a stacked card with eight Muay Thai fights and four K-1 rules fights, the card will play host to a large crowd at the Forum D'Assago.
Buakaw Por. Pramuk will make a return to K-1 rules in the main event when he faces off against Dzhabar Askerov. The two have fought before back in 2007 under te same ruleset where Buakaw took a unanimous decision. Askerov has improved since then though, going 10-1 in his last 11, winning the Tatneft Cup at 70kg in both 2010 and 2011. Buakaw is still a big favorite over Askerov though. Nevertheless, the fight should be a good one with Askerov's forward style clashing against Buakaw's Thai style.
Giorgio Petrosyan starts off his 2012 year against Abraham Roqueni. 2011 was really Roqueni's coming out party, as he was pretty much an unknown to most fans before his win over Andy Souwer. Afterwards, he picked up another win over a well known fighter in Gago Drago. Losing in the semi-finals of Thai Fight to Frank Giorgi, Roqueni will look to rebound but he's facing the toughest challenge possible. Giorgio Petrosyan last fought in November, beating Zeben Diaz in a fight where he looked a bit rusty. Petrosyan seemed to get his stride in the third round though and should be in top form for this fight.
In a Muay Thai bout, Saenchai steps up in weight once again to face one of the top Muay Thai fighters outside of Thailand at welterweight, Fabio Pinca. The weight is -66kg, and should be a real challenge for Saenchai due to the size. Saenchai last lost to Sagetdao Phetphaythai in December so he'll look to get back in the win column before facing F16 Rajanont not even two weeks later in Thailand. Fabio Pinca last lost to Kem Sitsongpeenong in the Thai Fight finals, so he's not the only one in this match-up who wants to rebound with a win.
These are the three biggest bouts on the card. The full 12-fight fight card featuring eight Muay Thai fights and four K-1 rules fights can be seen after the break.Add a comment
We've been waiting and waiting it seems for an announcement in regards to K-1. We've known for a while now that Golden Glory has been working to try to get involved with the K-1 brand and that there was a show on March 23rd in Moscow, but the announcement was a long time coming and clearly there were complications involved. Golden Glory issued a press release this morning announcing the March 23rd Moscow event, and explains that the K-1 negotiations are still underway, but that they've decided to move forward with putting out an event featuring top Kickboxers in the meantime.Add a comment
The countdown to Yokkao Extreme is on, with the featured bout of the evening being the second bout between Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Dzabar Askerov. Askerov has made a name for himself over the past few years, but has he come far enough to be challenging the best in the world. The best in the world would happen to be Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Askerov is challenging him again.

Sometimes you find yourself in a weird place in your life, where cohabitation has led you to become so reliant on someone else being around that you feel like a lost little lamb when your girlfriend is gone for a few days. Sure, for a while it goes something like this, and you find odd ways to prove your freedom to yourself, but it doesn't last all that long. After you've gorged yourself on pizza for one night and wake up the next day, realizing that you need to go to the grocery store and you find yourself in a quandary; do you just buy groceries for the house for the week, or enough to ensure survival for the weekend?
This last weekend I know what the answer was for me, and that was survival, and one of the main things on that survival list was Wheat Thins. With that said, I am more than comfortable to bring you this sponsored post from Wheat Thins.Add a comment
Two WKN Muay Thai titles will be on the line in Gold Coast, Australia on April 7. Nathan "Carnage" Corbett defends his title at -96.6kg and Frank Giorgi will fight for the vacant title at -69.9kg.
Nathan Corbett will face the French fighter Stephane Susperregui. Susperregui has faced some good competition in Steve McKinnon, Nicolas Wamba and Massinissa Hamaili. There's no doubt though that Corbett his toughest test to date.
Nathan Corbett is of course one of the best fighters that sits right below Heavyweight at around 95kg. Corbett picked up three wins last year, all in very dominant fashion. "Carnage" prefers to fight under Muay Thai rules and that might be one of the reasons why he has trouble finding opponents as many prefer to fight in Kickboxing. With the future of the MPL up in the air, it's good that Corbett has a fight booked instead of waiting around.
Frank Giorgi will face Antuan Siangboxing (AKA Antoine Pinto) for the vacant WKN Muay Thai title at -69.9kg. Giorgi comes off a loss to Buakaw Por. Pramuk where he put on a good showing. Antuan is coming off a loss to Yodsanklai Fairtex in October. Giorgi is definitely a fighter to watch, after great and gutsy showings against Vuyisile Colossa, Abraham Roqueni and Buakaw Por. Pramuk. Antuan is only 20 years old yet has a huge amount of fights, fighting very often, including 11 times last year. Antuan has agreed to the fight and the WKN will confirm the fight this week. [source]
