Thai Boxe Mania Results: Kyshenko Wins, Bessmertny KOs Drago With Head Kick

Thai Boxe Mania held its annual event in Turin, Italy yesterday and some notable fighters fought, including Artur Kyshenko. Kyshenko will be fighting Giorgio Petrosyan on March 24 in Milan, so this was a good introduction to the Italian crowd before that fight.

Artur Kyshenko fought Roberto Cocco at 75kg and took home a dominant decision win. Cocco came out guns blazing but it didn't phase Kyshenko at all. Kyshenko took over for the rest of the fight after about the first minute. Dropping Cocco with a spinning backfist in the second, he followed up by swarming Cocco with heavy punches to force a standing count. Kyshenko seemed a bit wild but his shots were really heavy and Cocco had no answer. It was a good warm up for the fight against Giorgio Petrosyan.

Winner of Fight Code's 2011 72.5kg tournament, Yury Bessmertny fought the popular K-1 star Gago Drago. Drago had lost six in a row prior to this fight and it was pretty much the same as his last six fights for him. Bessmertny stifled most of Drago's attempts at offense by moving around the ring and striking. Drago had nothing effective going for him. In the third Bessmertny hit Drago with a head kick that ended his night, sending him faceplanting straight to the canvas.

One of the best prospects in all of kickfighting, Chingiz Allazov dominated the tough veteran Erkan Varol to win a decision. Varol had nothing for Allazov, who kept the fight to his liking with his height and measure of distance. Allazov battered Varol with low kicks and body punches for the whole fight. I think it's time for a big step up in competition for Allazov. This was a step up in competition for him, but it's apparent that he's just on another level.

Tatneft Cup 2012 1st Stage 2nd Selection Results

Fighters took to the ring at the Tatneft Arena in Kazan, Russia for the second selection of the first stage of the 2012 Tatneft Cup. Winners will move on and join the winners from the first selection that took place on December 17, at the second stage (quarter finals). In total four selection events will be held in the first stage.

A few changes were made to the card, as the two Portuguese fighters, Bruno Carvalho and Luis Morais were unable to acquire a visa. Valeriy Podoyakhin was substituted in for Bruno Carvalho to face Enriko Gogokhia at -70kg and Oleg Zablodskiy stepped in for Luis Morais to face Dmitry Bezus at Heavyweight. Neither had any success though, as Gogokhia knocked out Podoyakhin in the third round and Bezus stopped Zablodskiy in the first. Gogokhia and Bezus are veterans of the Tatneft Cup, with Bezus losing in the final last year to Hicham Achalhi.

Two Japanese fighters, Masakazu Watanabe and Tsutomu Takahagi made the long trip to Kazan but were both unsuccesful. Watanabe, the Krush veteran, dropped a unanimous decision to Edvin Erik Kibus of Estonia at -70kg. Takahagi, competing at heavyweight, was knocked out in the second round by Tsotne Rogava, a fighter from Ukraine who is only 18 years old and has already fought the likes of Ismael Londt and Stefan Leko. 

In the -80kg division, possibly the best division in the Tatneft Cup, Vitaly Nikiforov  of Ukraine took a unanimous decision over Rain Karkinen of Estonia. Nikiforov's win put Ukraine at 3-0 for the event. One time It's Showtime fighter Errol Koning of Holland defeated Omar Amrani of Germany when Amrani gave up in the fourth round.

Be on the lookout for more Tatneft Cup content, as we have an interview with the organizers coming up shortly. Quick results below.

Yokkao Extreme Results: Giorgio Petrosyan & Buakaw Win, Saenchai Upset By Pinca

Yokkao Extreme took place in Milan, Italy today and despite the lack of means to watch the event, results are out. Among match-ups featured on the card were Buakaw Por. Pramuk vs. Dzhabar Askerov in the main event, Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Abraham Roqueni and Saenchai vs. Fabio Pinca. 

Not surprisingly, Buakaw Por. Pramuk defeated Dzhabar Askerov for the second time. Giorgio Petrosyan took what people are saying was a clear decision over Abraham Roqueni. In a bit of an upset, Fabio Pinca defeated Saenchai by decision. Saenchai was not the overwhelming favorite because of the big weight difference, but many expected him to win. This is the first time Saenchai has ever lost to a farang (Non Thai).
