LiverKick.com and Phuket Top Team Announce The Challenger Muay Thai Contest @phukettopteam

PTTAs we mentioned in an earlier post, we've partnered up with Phuket's hottest gym to bring you, the LiverKick.com readers news, information and of course, free stuff! Phuket Top Team is a gym and of course a fight team based out of Phuket, Thailand. Phuket is an absolutely beautiful island paradise that happens to house a huge, state-of-the-art gym that is frequented by some of the biggest names in the MMA, Muay Thai and Kickboxing world. If you don't believe me, here is a photo of Roger Huerta and BJJ legend Professor Braga prepping to teach some classes at PTT.

Much-hyped Muay Thai fighter Cyrus Washington has made Phuket Top Team his home, which should tell you something, and has been representing PTT on The Challenger Muay Thai, which airs weekly and picks up where The Contender Muay Thai left off. Think of it as a reality show featuring the best up-and-comers in the Muay Thai world competing against each other weekly to crown a champion and you can start to imagine just how big of a deal this show is. You can find more information at their website.

Since Cyrus is a big part of the show, he has a ton of The Challenger Muay Thai gear, too much to hold onto and that means that it was passed over to the trainers at Phuket Top Team. Well, those guys love LiverKick.com and our readers so much that we've decided to give away a whole slew of Challenger Muay Thai gear.

If you remember back to our It's Showtime giveaway, we don't skimp when we give away stuff, when we say we are giving away some gear we are giving away a lot of top notch gear. This prize package includes t-shirts, tank tops, fight shorts, polos and hats. It is a haul.

Petyindee Promotions Event This Friday

 

This Friday Petyindee boxing promotions will put together a big show at Lumpinee Stadium with the main event being a rematch fight when Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym takes on F16 Rajanont. The two met in July where F16 took the points win. Since then Nong-O has won four in a row with his last being a referee stoppage over top 5 contender Sitisak Siangsimaewgym. F16 on the other hand lost controversially to one of the hottest fighters in the sport, Kongsak Sitboonmee. But just a month later the two fought again and this time F16 scored multiple knockdowns to win the fight by a wide margin, and took home the Lumpinee super featherweight championship. With both fighters looking impressive since the last meeting, and the winner taking home an additional 10% of the 2 million baht (60 thousand US dollars) side bet between the two gyms this should be an action packed fight. 

Also on the card Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym will once again take on Tingtong Chor. KoyuhaIsuzu. They've fought once this year and Sam-A beat him on points. This time the winner will take home a new Toyota pickup truck.

Eight weight division champion Petchboonchu FA Group will try to make it 3 wins in 5 months over 2002 fighter of the year Singdam Kiatmuu9. Singdam is coming off a loss to Sagetdao Petpaiyathai, and Petchboonchu coming off a loss to Saenchai Sinbimuaythai. This fight is important for Singdam to show he's still got it, and that age hasn't caught up to him.

Palangtip Nor. Sripung vs. Chartshynoi Sor. Prasobshok will have a 1 million dollar side bet between gyms. Palangtip will surely be looking for a fight with Sam-A if he were to win as he is coming into this with 2 KO's in the last 6 weeks. One of those men he KO'd was Thailand's premier brawler and fan favorite Ponsaneh Sitmonchai. Since taking a 7 month break from the sport Ponsaneh has fought just one time and that resulted in a devastating elbow knockout to the aforementioned Palangtip. He will now look to get on the winning side when he goes up against Yuttachai Kiatpatarapan at 124 pounds, a weight that suits him well. 

In other notable action Phetmorakot Wor. Sungprapai will look to continue his quick ascension up the ranks when he takes on the slick Panomrunglek Kiatmuu9. Wanchai Sor. Kitisak takes on Khunsuek P.N Gym, and Ekmongkol Kaiyanghadaogym vs. Dejsakda Wor. Sungprapai rounds out the card.

Mike Zambidis Picks Up A Win In Cyprus

Today in Cyprus, Mike Zambidis made his returned to the ring for the first time since getting stopped by John Wayne Parr in May.

Zambidis took on Russian fighter Danila Utenkov and won a three round decision. There's not much detail surrounding the fight yet and it was quite a surprise to see that Zambidis was fighting today. There was absolutely nothing about this fight on the internet before today. On Zambidis' Facebook page, there is a post that says Danila Utenkov got his arm broken in the fight.

In my opinion, it was a good move for Zambidis to a fight in, as he will be facing Batu Khasikov in Russia on November 5th. Khasikov beat Albert Kraus in April and should be a tough test for Zambidis. A win in that fight for Zambidis would get him rolling again. He was on somewhat of a tear earlier in the year up until the loss to John Wayne Parr. A win for Khasikov would really get his name out there and open up more opportunities.

UFC on Versus 6's Pat Barry Isn't Worried About Kickboxing's Future, Nor Should You

The recent news of Badr Hari's departure from the Kickboxing world into the world of Boxing has shaken up many kickboxing fans, as do higher level fighters like Cosmo Alexandre making his MMA debut tomorrow and guys like Tyrone Spong and Gokhan Saki looking into other combat sports to make a possible home as well. I can understand it, but it feels like an alarmist reaction to a sport that is finally getting its sea legs without K-1 to prop it up.

In a recent interview with Luke Thomas of MMANation, Pat Barry not only discussed his upcoming fight this weekend for the UFC, but also discussed the current state of Kickboxing as well. Pat Barry echoes all of the thoughts that many Kickboxing fans believe; someone needs to put some serious money into Kickboxing in the United States and promote it right and it would do well. Fans love to see fighters knock each other around, yet Kickboxing has a rather meager following in the US. Pat does not see Kickboxing dying any time soon, nor does he see a few fighters heading to other combat sports as a serious detriment.
