Johann Fauveau Defeats Jordan Watson, Yetkin Ozkul Defeats Thomas Adamandopoulos In France

Today in Marseille, France, a big kickboxing event went down at Le Dome de Marseille, which holds 8 500 people and from all indications, it was a full house. Originally, Andy Souwer was scheduled to fight Johann Fauveau but Souwer pulled out due to K-1's return. As a result, Jordan Watson stepped in for Souwer, leaving Fauveau with a very formidable opponent still.

In the main event, two of the top kickboxers in the world around the weight of 61kg met for the ISKA World Title at -62.3kg under K-1 rules, as Yetkin Ozkul fought the hometown former champion, Thomas Adamandopoulos. Although Adamandopoulos lost this title to Karim Bennoui back in November via split decision, Bennoui must've had the title stripped or vacated it himself. Yetkin Ozkul has been on a roll lately, and he continued that today, surprisingly stopping Adamandopoulos in the fourth round via TKO. Adamandopoulos had only been stopped once previously years ago but Ozkul has really heavy hands that have lead to two first round knockouts of Ilias El Hajoui. This win should cement Ozkul in the minds of many as one of the top kickboxers around 61kg, and I'd like to see him fight Karim Bennoui.

Another ISKA K-1 rules world title was on the line at 70kg, as the aforementioned match-up of Jordan Watson and Johann Fauveau took place. I highlighted both of these fighters in my post yesterday as two who should definitely be in one of the big kickboxing tournaments for K-1 or Glory. Fauveau won a decision in what sounds like a great fight. Watson's team, Bad Company Gym, said that he won the first three rounds but got tired after, also saying that Fauveau was really tough. This win should definitely open some eyes of the higher-ups in the kickboxing game and hopefully we can see him, and even Watson on the big shows.

A few up and comers of the kickboxing scene fought as well. Bruce Codron, who has made the move over from full contact much like Andrew Tate, defeated Nizar Gallas in a 70kg fight by decision in a rematch of their fight in February, which he also won by decision. At 86kg, Halim Chibani defeated Nicolas Atmani by decision. Full results below:

Yetkin Ozkul def. Thomas Adamandopoulos by TKO in Round 4. (ISKA World Title -62.3kg K-1 Rules)

Johann Fauveau def. Jordan Watson by decision. (ISKA World Title -70kg K-1 Rules)

HW: Nordine Mohiedine def. Noel Cadet by KO in Round 1.

Amel Dehby def. Bernise Alldiss (Women's ISKA World Title -60kg)

-70kg: Bruce Codron def. Nizar Gallas by decision.

-86kg: Halim Chibani def. Nicolas Atmani by decision.

SuperKombat 2012 World Grand Prix II Results

SuperKombat held their second event of the year today in Cluj Napoca, Romania. It featured a four man tournament of heavyweights to qualify for the year end World Grand Prix show and also a fight for the inaugural SuperKombat 91kg World Title.

The heavyweight tournament featured some SuperKombat veterans, Raul Catinas, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Daniel Sam and Sam Tevette. In the first semi-final, Raul Catinas knocked Jairzinho Rozenstruik out in the second round. Daniel Sam also knocked out Sam Tevette in the second semi-final.

Catinas and Sam met in the final, where Sam was winning the fight with his kicks and size advantage up until the second round. Then in the second, Catinas just went into berserker mode and spammed vicious left hooks to the body, dropping Sam. Sam would get up and then get dropped by a right uppercut to the chin. Sam was dropped again twice in the third round and Catinas picked up the win, winning the tournament and advancing to SuperKombat's year end World Grand Prix show.

For SuperKombat's inaugural 91kg World Title, Bogdan Stoica dominated Ivan Stanic, dropping him multiple times. Stanic really had nothing for Stoica, who scored a knockdown with a flying knee/punch combo in the first, two knockdowns from punches and another knockdown from a flying knee throughout rounds two and three. Stanic was getting hurt from every clean punch Stoica landed.

I didn't get to see the whole show so I won't comment on the other fights until I've seen them. Here are the full results:

Semi-Final 1: Raul Catinas def. Jairzinho Rozenstruik by KO in Round 2.

Semi-Final 2: Daniel Sam def. Sam Tevette by KO.

Heavyweight: Benny Adegbuyi def. Patrick Liedert by KO in Round 3.

-95kg: Sebastian Ciobanu def. Redouan Cairo by TKO in Round 2.

-95kg: Andrei Stoica def. Rodney Glunder by decision.

Heavyweight: Alexandru Lungu def. Wieslaw Kwaniewski by split decision.

-91kg World Title: Bogdan Stoica def. Ivan Stanic by unanimous decision.
