Hong Man Choi and FedorFormer K-1 and DREAM fighter Hong Man Choi (Choi Hong-Man in Korea) has apparently found himself in some legal trouble this week after a report came out that he purportedly assaulted her in his bar on October 8th while arguing over a bill. The woman claims that Choi had overcharged her and began to argue with Choi over the sum on the bill, which then escalated into a heated argument and ended with Choi punching her in the head. She waited until the next day and posted the complaint against Choi on an internet police portal.

Police have questioned Choi, who admitted that there was an argument with the female customer. The customer then began hurling insults at the former K-1 fighter before he claimed he could not take the abuse anymore and that he "pushed her just a little bit."

Choi regrets pushing the woman, but insists that if she continues to claim that he punched her that he will pursue legal action of his own against the slander. He is so insistent that he only shoved her and didn't punch her that he has gone as far as to claim he'll retire from K-1 if he is lying. [source]

SuperKombat will be holding their second event of the month on this Saturday, October 15. The event will be the fourth and last of their "World Grand Prix" series before their final event where the tournament winners from each event battle it out in a tournament. The event will take place in Piatra Neamt, Romania to round out SuperKombat's tour of Romania for the year, being held in four different cities across the country.

For the central focus of the event (the tournament), Erhan Deniz will face Marian Baryla of Poland in one semi-final and Wendell Roche will face Andrei Bokan of Estonia in the other. This is probably the weakest field out of the four SuperKombat "World Grand Prix" tournaments this year, with Deniz and Roche being the only notables, neither of them being highly regarded. Erhan Deniz was surprisingly competitive with Daniel Ghita for a round, but then proceeded to get demolished in the second. Roche is coming off a win over Yuksel Ayadin at It's Showtime's Lyon event on May 14.

In other action on the card, Bogdan Stoica returns from a leg injury to fight Dutch based fighter Leon Midiema. What's interesting is the fight is at 92 kg, suggesting Stoica may have ballooned up a little bit during time off due to injury. He usually fights below 90 kg. Also on the card is Romanian fighter Sebastien Ciobanu, who fights Cengiz Ozpamuk of Turkey along with K-1 veteran Catalin Morosanu slated to be on the card against a to be announced opponent. And if you really care, Bob Sapp will be fighting Alexandru Lungu in a fight where the ring just might collapse. Full fight card below:


 

The event will be broadcast live on Eurosport, ProTV and on www.sport.ro.

Badr HariKickboxing's Bad Boy Badr Hari has made it clear that he intends to make the jump to Heavyweight Boxing after his January 28th fight with Gokhan Saki. He mentioned surrounding himself with the right people, and this recent interview with Naazim Richardson from FightHype.com confirms that Badr Hari and Mike Passenier have been looking into the right people to make Badr Hari's Heavyweight Boxing career happen. Naazim seems to have a certain level of confidence in Badr Hari, but isn't making any big promises yet. Check out the full interview for more.

PC: You recently met with kickboxer Badr Hari and his trainer Mike Passenier. They really wanted to meet you and it happened. He wants to work with you, man. How is that looking?

NR: Badr Hari is a good dude and so is his trainer, Mike. You know, Badr Hari won me over, man. As soon as we met, he told me he wouldn't let me down and that he would make me proud. But that's not what won me over. What won me over is he said, "I don't want to be top 10. I want to be the fucking best." He has the right mentality to do this shit right here. I tell fighters all of the time, "You are not considered great until you beat someone that you weren't supposed to beat." Ali did it several times. Ali wasn't supposed to beat Liston, he wasn't supposed to beat Foreman, and he wasn't supposed to beat Spinks. He proved his greatness over and over again. Foreman did the same thing with Joe Frazier. Joe Frazier did the same thing in his first fight with Ali. So you don't prove your greatness until you win a fight that you weren't supposed to win. This kid Badr has the right mentality to win a lot of fights he's not supposed to win. But he is...how old is he?

PC: He's 26.

NR: Yeah, he thinks like a 26 year old. He feels he's indestructible. I told him this, I said, "You have a trunk of weaponry and you have an army of guys coming up the stairs to get you. Your problem is you don't know if you want to shoot them with the M-16, the AR, the 9MM, the assault rifle, the sawed off shotgun or the M-4. By the time you figure out which one you're going to use, they are already up the stairs and in your shit. See, those two brothers in Europe got one weapon and it's an old shotgun. They sitting on the couch with that shotgun and when that door knob turns, they are shooting you with that shotgun." I told him that's the only difference. Our goal is to figure out when to use all of those weapons because he's going to need them all, but you just have to know when to use them. The Klitschkos utilize the hell out of that one gun they have. I could tell he didn't like the Klitschkos, so I kept talking about them in a positive light to see how he would react. I think this guy has the goods, man. I love the kid's mentality. And he is every bit of 6'6". I got downstairs to where him and Mike were and he stood up, I said, "Damn this kid is a legitimate 6'6"." And something else I told him, whether the Klitschkos are around or not, when he is ready for that level, our job is to make them realize they don't belong. See, Larry Holmes stuck around to try and show Mike Tyson it was still his time. Mike wasn't having that shit. When Mike hit Larry, it looked like someone cut a hole threw the mat and yanked Larry through it. Mike Tyson let him know his time had come and gone and that's what my goal is with Badr. If they want to stick around, we either gotta let them see Badr fight and say, "Hey man, it's time for us to move on," or do what Mike did to Larry and show them it's time for them to move on.

Bouie Fisher used to always tell me in the gym, "Watch that door and eventually the right kid is going to walk through it." I asked him what he meant by that and he said, "One day, a kid is going to walk through that door and do whatever you tell him to do and be able to adjust to anything that you want him to adjust to." I remember when me and Freddie Roach was working together and Freddie told me when Manny Pacquiao walked through the door at Wild Card Gym, he said to himself, "That's who I built this gym for." Freddie was reluctant to work with Pacquiao at first because he knew there wasn't much entity at those lower weight classes, and Manny was a small dude. One day, Manny had no one to hold the mitts for him and asked Freddie to give him 2 rounds, and from that moment on, Freddie knew what he had. Badr Hari could be that type of kid.

The MuayThai Premier League held their second event in Padova, Italy on the weekend and featured some great action. Unfortunately, there was no live stream or broadcast anywhere but videos are starting to be uploaded. The event will air on The Score in Canada on October 18th. From the looks of it, the event drew a pretty poor attendance. We'll update with more videos as they're uploaded. Here's what we have so far:

Kaoponlek vs. Charles Francois

Saiyok Pumpanmuang vs. Mauro Serra

Jill is back with some more awesome highlight videos, this time of 3 of this year's Krush tournament champions; 55kg champ Shota Takiya, 60kg champ Hirotaka Urabe and 70kg Kenta. It's interesting to see the different style of fighter that emerged as the champion of each division. Takiya with his power and aggression, Hirotaka with his aggresive boxing style paired with flashy knees and head kicks, and Kenta dissecting his opponents offensively with his speed and accuracy  coupled greatly with his head movement and defensive speed.

The latest rankings from Lumpinee stadium are out. 115, 126, and 130 all got new champions at the last big show in September. Another interesting note in that Japanese fighter Genji Umeno is now #9 at 126 thanks to him knockout win over Wuttidet Lukprabart in Japan. Champions at 105-112 are generally young teens who grow out of the weight quickly. That is the case with Phetmorakot, Lomtaley, and Aekmongkol. They all fight 4-10 pounds higher now, and will likely vacate, or already have vacated. Once again these rankings are from muaythai2000.com
