Danyo Ilunga Fights On Saturday, November 3 In Germany

Danyo Ilunga is the It's Showtime 95kg World Champion and recently made his debut in GLORY on October 6 in Brussels, where he picked up a decision win over Ali Cenik. When Ilunga isn't fighting in the big shows, he's consistently staying active, fighting in his home of Germany.

Ilunga will fight in Germany again on this Saturday, November 3 when he faces fellow German fighter Florian Ogunade. The event takes place in Hamburg and is titled Get In The Ring.

Ilunga already has four wins in Germany this year, with the last two being in a one night tournament on September 18 where he defeated Wendell Roche and Sergio Pique. It's good that Ilunga always stays active. He generally dominates when he fights in Germany and this fight should be more of the same. Although he wins a lot, performance-wise he's inconsistent and these types of fights at least help him improve.

Kizaemon Saiga vs MASAYA Added to Shootboxing S-Cup

Shootboxing has announced the first fight for its S-Cup card on November 17th and it is a 63kg matchup between the flashy Kizaemon Saiga and 19 year old prospect MASAYA. Saiga (10-5-1, 2 KO) is 5-1 in his last 6 fights, losing only to Koya Urabe in a close fight while picking up wins over Krush 60kg tournament finalists Fumiya Osawa and Katsuya Goto, as well as stopping then WPMF World Lightweight champion Arita Tsukahara back in May. He most recently took a decision against Tatsuya Inaishi at REBELS.12. MASAYA currently holds the #1 ranking in Shootboxing at Super Lightweight, going 7-1 in the promotion and currently riding an 8 fight win streak in all kickfighting competition. Among those 8 wins are Hiroshi Mizumachi, Yu Sugawara, MMA fighters Tenkei Oda and Kensaku Nakamura and most recently, Naoki. A win over Saiga would be the highest profile win for the young prospect and would without a doubt earn him a shot at current SB Super Lightweight champ Hiroaki Suzuki.

Roman Kleibl fights Sebastian Ciobanu and Benjamin Adegbuyi fights Alexey Ignashov, who comes off two wins in a week, over Zinedine Hameur-Lain and Tomas Hron respectively.

Ondrej Hutnik Wins In Slovakia

Though fighting a bit under the radar these days, Ondrej Hutnik is one of the top 95kg fighters in kickboxing. He hasn't lost since his 2008 defeat to Tyrone Spong, nothing to be ashamed about, going on a winning streak spanning four years now. Similarly to Spong, Hutnik started his career all the way down at 70kg, and is now fighting 95kg, as opposed to Spong at heavyweight.

Hutnik returned to the ring yesterday in Nitra, Slovakia, getting a unanimous decision victory over Pacome Assi of France, a veteran and stiff test in the 95kg weight class. There's no doubt that Hutnik is one of the better fighters in the 95kg weight class, he just fights on smaller shows, while still fighting decent and good competition for the most part. If there were to be a 95kg field or tournament of some kind, which there will be in Glory next year, Hutnik should definitely be there.

Alexey Ignashov fought just a week after fighting at Tatneft, and picked up a unanimous decision win over Tomas Hron. Vladimir Moravcik won via breaking Jose Barradas' leg in the first round.

The card, titled Nitrianska Noc Bojovnikov, was originally scheduled to feature a marquee match-up at 70kg between Abraham Roqueni and Yury Bessmertny, but the bout was called off due to Bessmertny sustaining an injury this week.
