Errol Zimmerman vs. Nicolaj Falin Set For August 28 in Germany

zimmermanposter

Errol Zimmerman and Nicolaj Falin are set to face off in Spergau, Germany on August 28 at the 4th Merseberger Fight Night event. German website groundandpound.de reported the news.

Originally scheduled to be Stefan Leko taking on Nicolaj Falin, Leko was forced out of the bout with injuries sustained from his recent loss to Catalin Morosanu last month. Errol Zimmerman is stepping in to replace the injured Leko.  Zimmerman must be chomping at the bit to fight, as he is coming off a cancelled fight in June. Before that, Zimmerman had won two fights so far this year, topping Zinedane Hameur Lain and Mourad Bouzidi in fights where he dominated the opposition. Zimmerman has made 2011 a successful year so far, unlike 2010 where he lost 3 fights, including a rather lackluster showing against Ewerton Teixeira.

Nicolaj Falin is coming off a first round knockout loss to Mark Miller in May at the United Glory Finals. Falin would definitely like to get back in the win column and doing it with a win over a highly regarded opponent like Zimmerman would most likely open some doors for the German.

Also on the card will be a one night, 4 man tournament featuring Alban Ahmeti, Omar Tekin, Fernando Groenhart and Baker Barakat.

Today It's Showtime announced that Robin van Roosmalen would be filling in for Giorgio. van Roosmalen will be facing Chahid Oulad el Hadj in the quarter finals of the tournament.

Just like the original scheduled quarter final between Petrosyan and Chahid Oulad El Hadj, also this fight will be a rematch. Van Roosmalen and Oulad El Hadj faced each other in Amsterdam at 'Fighting Stars presents IT'S SHOWTIME', March 6 of this year. It was Van Roosmalen who got the better of the fight, scoring a 4-1 judges' decision. The young talent is now 2-1 in his last 3 IT'S SHOWTIME battles, also scoring a KO victory over William Diender. On May 21, Robin van Roosmalen put on a very spectacular fight against Mohamed Khamal at 'Fightclub presents IT'S SHOWTIME', where Khamal took the decision win after an extra round.

For Chahid, this fight will be chance to take his revenge. However, this time Van Roosmalen won't 'just' be in Chahid's way to a victory, but also in his way to a chance to win the € 50.000 tournament jackpot. Two heavy sluggers with a good chin, great speed and stamina will make up for a beautiful rematch.

Photo of the Day: RENA Returns in August

RENA, the Girls S-Cup 2009 and 2010 Champion returns to the ring in August after a string of bad luck, including a poor performance to a high school student, Erika Kamimura in an exhibition bout and a loss to Ai Takahashi. It turns out that RENA was heavily considering retirement after he loss to Takahashi, where many who had supported her were suddenly declaring her career finished. Luckily her trainers and the officials at Shoot Boxing were able to convince her to continue her fighting career, as she did hold two consecutive S-Cup Championships and would be foolish not to try again.

RENA is set to fight on the August 19th Shootboxing event, the Girls S-Cup Qualifying Event, where the only match set currently is Ai Takahashi vs. Erika Kamimura, with RENA and V.V. Mei set to participate in the event as well. [source]

Team Slamm Holding 70kg Tournament

SlammTeam Slamm will host an event in Suriname on August 26 that will feature an 8-man 70kg tournament featuring some up-and-coming talent. Slamm has always been known for putting on some solid kickboxing shows in the past, and by the looks of it this 70kg tournament will fall right in line. Brent Ducharme has the story;

The biggest name included in the eight man tournament is Team Slamm member Anthony Kane. Somewhat undersized for the 70 kg. weight class, Kane has never managed to break through to the top of the division since making it to the semifinal round of the prospect-packed K-1 World MAX 2010 West Europe Tournament. He has had some recent struggles, losing bouts to Faldir Chahbari and the relatively unknown Antoine Mandela.

...

Other tournament competitors: Ajay Balgobind (former Hafi el Boustati opponent and new Team Slamm member), Miloud el Geubli (of Mejiro Gym), Cedric Bacuna (Vos Gym), Benedito Xavier, Antoine Mandela and Alessandro Campagna. [source]
