As usual, here is the weekly edition of the Warman's Kickfighting show featuring Steven Wright and myself. We run down the KRUSH event before it happened and also discuss a lot of other big happenings in the worlds of Kickboxing and Muay Thai.
Go to Steven's blog to listen or look it up on iTunes (search: LordGaul).
Also expect the first LiverKick podcast to go up some time tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned!
in just a little over two months from now Badr Hari and Gokhan Saki will square off in one of Heavyweight Kickboxing's most anticipated bouts in a long time. There is a lot of hype leading into it, as well as a running narrative that both men are looking to exit the realm of Kickboxing for the world of Heavyweight Boxing. No one is quite sure how long, if at all that will hold for either man, but the threats need to be taken seriously for now. Personally, I feel like the rise of FIKA and other possible outlets for Kickboxing will quickly draw them back in, but you never know when a fighter will stick to their convictions. In the meantime, watch this hype video made for the upcoming It's Showtime 55 showdown between Badr and Gokhan and enjoy the ride.
There was a whole lot to talk about this week on Warman's Kickfighting show with both Steven Wright and myself, where we ran down the results for the big four cards that have gone down since last we spoke. the first card we give a bulk of the show to was yesterday's SuperKombat show, which featuring a one-night, eight man Heavyweight tournament and featured some solid names. We look at the event and measure up the fighters on their performances and how they'd stand on the world scene, as well as give an in-depth look into what makes Errol Zimmerman tick and how his 2011 was an incredible year.
We shift our attention to It's Showtime's Tenerife card where we look at the results as well as what kind of future we expect for a fighter like Danyo Ilunga and more. Then we cap the show off by looking at the Night of Champions card and that TATNET Cup event as well. As always, check the show out on Steven's blog or on iTunes (keyword: LordGaul), or just listen to it below.
If you follow Kickboxing and Muay Thai the names of Mosab Amrani and Ramzi Tamaditi should be burned into your consciousness, as they are two guys on the way up and known for putting on extremely exciting fights. Thanks to AFAV and Mousid Gym Steven Wright, my partner in the weekly Warman's Kickfighting show we are able to bring this special interview to you.
Steven goes into detail with both men about their fighting style as well as what the future holds for both of them. It is definitely worth a solid listen to hear what both men have to say. I mean, Mosab wants to be remembered like Mike Tyson. There is a lot of awesome stuff like that in there.
