Final Fight 07: Poturak to Face Leko in Retirement Bout

Poturak

A few days ago Dzevad Poturak announced that he would be retiring come this September at Final Fight 07 in Sarajevo, although there was no opponent chosen yet. That has changed today as we find out that Poturak's final opponent will be Stefan "Blitz" Leko. This is an interesting fight for both men as Poturak has undoubtedly had better results over the past few years, while Leko has fallen upon hard times, having a hot and cold career since 2005 or so.

This makes Leko a perfect last opponent for Poturak, as a win over Leko will help to put a good bookend on his career, but a loss to Leko will not be seen as any sort of disgrace, either, as Leko still shows flashes of brilliance when he is motivated.

Poturak

Bosnian Heavyweight Kickboxer Dzevad Poturak has released a statement today announcing his retirement from the sport of Kickboxing at the age of 35. Poturak, who has competed in K-1, It's Showtime, SuperKombat and most recently Final Fight, will fight one last time at Final Fight 07, which is scheduled for September. Poturak's record currently stands at 50-22-1-1, with notable wins over Sergei Laschenko, Wendel Roche and Daniel Ghita under his belt.

Poturak had a strong showing at the K-1 World Grand Prix in March where he defeated Laschenko in a reserve bout and was called to fill in for an injured Badr Hari. Poturak was actually injured himself at the time, but opted to head to the ring and fight, putting forth a valiant effort against Ismael Londt. His most recent bout was at Final Fight 06 where he lost to Igor Jurkovic.

His retirement bout is slated for September 6th in Sarajevo under the Final Fight banner. Everyone here at LiverKick wishes Poturak well in his retirement.

It seems to be slow lately, like really slow. GLORY 9 New York is indeed coming up and K-1 has a show this weekend in Calgary, but outside of that, it has been a bit of a deadzone for Kickboxing the past few weeks. Apparently Jaideep Singh knew that and decided to make his MMA debut for Super Fight League out of India. Super Fight League debuted with a lot of hype, glitz and a really funny theme song because the inevitable scaling back into much smaller, more manageable events featuring up-and-coming fighters and not Bob Sapp.

Jaideep's debut was successful, with Alireza Tavak tapping to strikes. Yes, someone tapped to Jaideep's strikes.
