Buakaw Banchamek and Shane Campbell Advance in K-1 World MAX Tournament

K-1

Honestly I'm really not sure what happened here, but the official start time was listed on Epicentre.tv at 20:00 AEST, which is Australian time, which translated to 6am Eastern time. Then it was magically changed to 15:00 or so, which is significantly earlier so if you are like me, you missed a good chunk of this show. The big news from the portions that I didn't get to see as I had no clue that the show was airing was that Saenchai has apparently lost, but I'm not sure the means in which it happened.

The bigger news is of course the two K-1 World MAX Quarter Final bouts, where Buakaw Banchamek and Zhou Zhi Peng squared off and Shane Campbell met Christopher Mena from Colombia. The first bout to air was Buakaw Banchamek vs. Zhou Zhi Peng, which served as the main event on Thai and Chinese television as both men were very hyped up in the local markets, as they should be. It was a knock down, drag out affair that saw Zhou fight up to Buakaw's level and the referees deciding that it should go to an extra round. There was some controversy as Buakaw was potentially injured and couldn't go on, but he sucked it up and got back in the ring, only to suffer an accidental headbutt from Zhou that opened him up. Buakaw went into full beast mode after that and walked away with the decision and Angry Buakaw was a sight to behold. Props to Zhou for a great fight, though.

Then in the second Quarter Final Shane Campbell showed the world that he's perhaps the most slept-upon talent at 70kg in the world as he just made Christopher Mena look like an amateur with his strikes. Campbell's hands and kicks were just too much and the body shots did most of the damage. Campbell dropped Mena twice, once in round two and once in round threebefore the bout went to a decision with Campbell taking it.

  • Han Kai Hu (China) (R3 - Decision) Chengrob (Thailand)
  • Kong Hong Xing (China) (R3 - Decision) Saenchai (Thailand)
  • Zhang Kai Yin (China) (R2 - KO) Rachen (Thailand)
  • Li Ning (China) (R3 - TKO) Suthin (Thailand)
  • Xie Lei (China) (R3 - Decision) Pasol (Philippines)

GLORY SuperFight Series Tokyo and GLORY 13 Spoilers

Glory 13

GLORY 13 went down last night in the wee hours of the morning, I thank those of you that stayed up to watch the PPV here on LiverKick and apologize for my absence, but sometimes a man gets sick and things happen.

Here is a rundown of both the GLORY SuperFight Series and GLORY 13 Tokyo.

MAX Muay Thai Results: Buakaw Beats Kehl, Sagetdao Wins Tournament

Sagetdao

MAX Muay Thai held their last event of the year, MAX Muay Thai The Final Chapter in Thailand today, which saw a huge main event featuring Buakaw Banchamek vs. Enriko Kehl, which always struck me as odd knowing that both Buakaw and Kehl will be fighting for K-1 on December 28th in separate fights, but hey, the more fights featuring these two the better, I say. There was also a 4-man tournament featuring Sagetdao, Andrei Kubelin, Victor Ngabe and Dylan Salvador.

Buakaw and Kehl fought a very tough fight, with Kehl looking good at first, but Buakaw really running away with the fight as it went on, opening up a nasty cut on Kehl's forehead which almost stopped the fight, but the doctors decided that he could continue. Kehl still landed some solid blows throughout, but Buakaw seemed to be on form and had an answer for everything Kehl threw at him.

 

  • Buakaw Banchamek (R3 - Decision) Enriko Kehl
  • Tournament Final: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Victor Ngabe
  • MAX Ultimate: Ekapracha (R1 - TKO) Tomoyuki Nishikawa
  • Tournament: Victor Ngabe (R3 - Decision) Dylan Salvador
  • Tournament: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Andrei Kubelin
  • Khem Sitsongpeenong (R3 - Decision) Vahid Roshani
