Armen Petrosyan Wins Haarlem Fight Night Tournament

Haarlem Fight Night went down yesterday in Haarlem, Netherlands and featured a one night tournament at 70kg, featuring the likes of most notably Armen Petrosyan and Henri van Opstal.

The quarter finals saw Maiki Karathanasis defeat Anthony Kane by decision and Robbie Hageman beat William Diender by decision in an extra round of a close fight. Henri van Opstal cruised to a decision win over Kevin Hessling in his quarter final, while Armen Petrosyan stopped Nick Beljaards in the first round of his quarter final with three knockdowns.

The semi finals were then set up with Henri van Opstal vs. Maiki Karathanasis and Armen Petrosyan vs. Robbie Hagemen. Karathanasis was pparently visibly tired from his weight cut in the quarter finals and that was more of the same in the semi final. van Opstal cruised to another decision win and advanced to the final. In the other semi final, Armen Petrosyan cruised to a decision over Robbie Hagemen, saving himself for the final.

The final was to be five rounds, because of the WMTA title on the line for the tournament winner, but it didn't last that long. Petrosyan managed to damage van Opstal with low kicks over the course of the fight. After being thrown to the canvas a few times, van Opstal found it increasingly difficult to get up due to his legs being battered. After the third round, van Opstal's corner of Team Souwer threw in the towel, declaring Armen Petrosyan the winner.

Quarter: Maiki Karathanasis def. Anthony Kane by decision.
Quarter: Robbie Hagemen def. William Diender by decision in an extra round.

Enriko Kehl Continues to Rise with a Spinning Elbow KO at Thailand vs. Europe 2013

If there's anyone flying under the radar in the 70 kg weight division, it's Enriko Kehl. The twenty year old German sensation put on some seriously impressive performances during 2012, including a KO win over Nonsai at last year's Thailand vs. Europe, as well as a collection of Tatneft victories. Kehl came into Thailand vs. Europe 2013 off a hotly disputed loss to Dzhabar Askerov. Keep in mind Askerov went on to defeat Any Souwer at Yokkao 2013 not long later, so this should give you an idea of exactly how good Kehl is, or has the potential to be. Last night he took to the ring again against Berneung Topking Boxing, who himself was coming off a loss. Berneung may not be in his prime of his life, but he still has the ability to put solid wins together. 

Kelh demonstrated why we at Liverkick are excited about this kid. After a relatively even first two round, Kehl threw a right elbow, which Beneung dodged, and continued the rotation into a second spinning elbow, catching the Thai flush on the jaw and sending him to the canvas in a crumpled heap. Medics immediately rushed into the ring to revive him, and he was still unable to stand when Kehl's victory was announced. I think Enriko would make a great addition to any big-name league, whether it be Kickboxing or Muay Thai. He can go places.

Also on the card, Phuket Top Team's Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn faced perpetual journeyman Steeve Valente, and ended his night with a TKO elbow victory midway through Round 3. "The Black Sniper" Marco Pique failed to rebound from a loss to Raphael Llodra, losing a unanimous decision to Suriya Prasathinpimai. In the surprise of the night, Christophe Provost won a decision victory against Changpuek Sor KeawSuek, who had most recently won back-to-back victories in the Korea MAX tournament, and Thai Fight 2013.

W5 Slovakia: Nabiev, Sichtman Win Tournaments

W5 held their second event of the year yesterday, branching outside of Russia to Bratislava, Slovakia where they held two tournaments to crown two new champions. The two tournaments consisted of four fighters each and took place at 71kg and 75kg respectively, with the winners becoming W5 champions.

At 71kg, the field was set up with Hysni Beqiri vs. Vladimir Konsky and Alim Nabiev vs. Tevfik Sucu. Beqiri vs. Konsky was up first and was a non-stop fight. Beqiri hit Konsky with everything including the kitchen sink but Konsky still managed to valiantly fight back for the entire fight. Konsky had the more diverse attack while Beqiri, outside of a few kicks, only threw punches, seemingly trying to save his legs for the final. Beqiri was awarded a unanimous decision but couldn't continue to the finals due to injury, so Konsky moved on to the finals despite the loss.

The other 71kg semi final saw 18 year old Alim Nabiev put in another clinical performance as he schooled Tevfik Sucu and moved on to the finals with a unanimous decision win.

At 75kg, the semi finals saw Vladimir Moravcik fight Artem Litvinenko and Remy Bonjasky pupil Darryl Sichtman fight Konstantin Serebrennikov. Litvinenko hung with Moravcik for a short period of time, but eventually Moravcik took over by the second round and stopped Litvinenko with body punches, moving on to the final. In the other semi final, Serebrennikov was competitive with Sichtman, but it was the two knockdowns Sichtman scored that sealed the fight for him. Sichtman would land some perfectly placed and timed punches that sent Serebrennikov down.

So with the finals set, Alim Nabiev faced Vladimir Konsky at 71kg. It was almost identical to Nabiev's semi final fight, as he schooled Konsky over three rounds and was never close to being in danger. Nabiev won a unanimous decision and earned himself the W5 71kg title.

In the 75kg final, it was another action packed fight between Darryl Sichtman and Vladimir Moravcik. Moravcik was the much more experienced fighter and had much bigger names on his resume, but Sichtman overcame that and had Moravcik seemingly out on his feet at the end of the third round, and damaged from repeated low kicks. After three rounds the judges declared an extra round but Moravcik was unable to continue, therefore giving the win to Darryl Sichtman. Sichtman got the biggest win of his career to date and became the W5 75kg champion.
