Nuit Des Champions, Big Fights In France On Saturday

On this Saturday, November 24, the annual edition of Nuit Des Champions takes place in Marseilles, France with a big fight card. Many notable fighters and great match-ups fill up the card, which is sure to draw a big crowd if past years are anything to go by. All fights but one are under K-1 rules.

It's hard to point out one main attraction, but for us I'd say it's Karim Bennoui vs. Thomas Adamandopoulos in a rematch of their fight at the same event last year, which saw Bennoui walk away with a hotly contested split decision win. Bennoui is #4 on the LiverKick lightweight rankings and Adamandopoulos is #6, making this of huge relevance in the lightweight division. Once again, the fight is five rounds and is pretty much all but guaranteed to be a great fight.

Another five round fight on the card sees France's Karim Ghajji taking on the Belarussian fighter Dmitry Valent. Valent has gone under the radar for a long time but he's a very good fighter and gave John Wayne Parr a very good fight. We still aren't done with five rounders, as Bruce Codron takes his biggest kickboxing fight yet against Abdallah Mabel at 70kg. Codron came from full contact and has racked up a bunch of wins in kickboxing, including against Mohammed El Mir last month.

Now we'll get into the three round fights. Abdallah Ezbiri faces another full contact convert, Samir Mohamed at 67kg. Ezbiri ventured over to Krush in June and lost to Yuta Kubo, but there's no shame in that at all and Ezbiri will look to establish his name even further. Stephane Susperregui also ventured over to foreign lands when he gave Nathan Corbett quite a fight in April. Susperregui will fight another man who gave Corbett some trouble in Emmanuel Payet at 95kg. Another fighter who went over to Krush and lost to Yuta Kubo, Charles Francois, faces Vang Moua at 64kg.

62.1kg 5x3: Karim Bennoui vs. Thomas Adamandopoulos

60kg 3x3: Amel Dehby vs. Fatima Adib

76kg 5x3: Karim Ghajji vs. Dmitry Valent

70kg 5x3: Bruce Codron vs. Abdallah Mabel

S-Cup 2012: Andy Souwer Wins 4th S-Cup

The Shootboxing S-Cup takes place every two years and today in Tokyo, Japan, it was time for the 2012 edition. S-Cup tournament participants this year were Andy Souwer, Kem Sitsongpeenong, Henri van Opstal, Gesias Cavalcante, Hiroki Shishido, Hiroaki Suzuki, Joachim Hansen and Bovy Sor Udomson. The card also featured some notable single fights with the likes of Andy Ristie, Kosuke Komiyama and Kizaemon Saiga.

Andy Souwer ended up winning his fourth S-Cup, defeating friend, teammate and student Henri van Opstal in the finals via unanimous decision. Souwer advanced to the finals by getting a majority decision over Kem Sitsongpeenong in his first match-up and then stopping Hiroki Shishido in the first round in the semi-finals. van Opstal defeated Bovy in his first match-up by unanimous decision, and also got a first round stoppage in his semi-final fight, as he knocked out Satoru Suzuki in the first round.

Henri van Opstal was supposed to face Hiroaki Suzuki, who defeated Joachim Hansen by extra round unanimous decision, but Suzuki couldn't continue on to the semi-finals. Satoru Suzuki had won his reserve fight against Akihiro Gono by first round knockout, so he stepped in and fought van Opstal. Other quarter finals included Hiroki Shishido getting a majority decision over Gesias Cavalcante.

In the other reserve fight, Hinata Watanabe rematched Andy Ristie, and it went pretty much the same way as their first fight back in January at It's Showtime. Ristie stopped Hinata in the first round again, extending his winning streak going into his fight with Andy Souwer next month at the K-1 MAX Finals on December 15.

In super fight action, RISE 60kg champion and LiverKick #10 ranked lightweight Kosuke Komiyama defeated Masa Naguranchun M16 by unanimous decision in an extra round at 60kg. At 63kg, Kizaemon Saiga defeated Shootboxing's MASAYA by unanimous decision. At 70kg, Toby Imada notched another win in Shootboxing thanks to shoot points, as he got a majority decision over Mostafa Abdollahi.

Allazov, Shakuta, Akhramenko Return Tomorrow in Belarus

Tomorrow in Minsk, Belarus, a number of the top Belarussian fighters will return to the ring.

Vitali Akhramenko seemingly disappeared after winning the Fight Code heavyweight tournament last year, but he'll be back in action tomorrow. He takes on Elvin Abbasov, a Russian journeyman fighter who he should get a win over.

Dmitry Shakuta, one of the top light heavyweights, also returns and will fight Sergei Papusha of Ukraine at 81kg. Shakuta is coming off a win over another Ukrainian, Igor Lapin, via a rare, in his case, knockout.

Chingiz Allazov is a fighter who I consider to be one of, if not the best up and coming fighter in the sport. Originally scheduled to fight at Thai Boxe Mania next week against Warren Stevelmans, Allazov instead fights here and faces the Ukrainian fighter Sergei Kulyaba at 69kg. The fight will be under full Muay Thai rules, but three rounds.

Other notables on the card include Slovakia's Vladimir Idranyi, who fights at 81kg against fellow Tatneft veteran Pavel Turuk of Belarus.
