2010 Fight of the Year: Part 2

Our look at the top fights of 2010 continues here with a slightly more obscure fight:

Bovy Sor. Udomson v. Takaaki Umeno (Shootboxing Ishin 2, April 11)

From Shootboxing, this one kind of flew under the radar, but if you want an action packed brawl, this one is for you.  The Thai fighter Bovy has seen his career fade in recent years, while Shootboxing's Umeno has been on the rise.  Here they met in the middle, turning in a crazy, bloody battle high on excitement.


Previously featured:

Tyrone Spong v. Jerome Le Banner

A note on this series - we'll be posting 1 or 2 of the top fights of the year on a daily basis over the coming week.  Fights will be featured in chronological order moving through the year.


Watch Generation Evolucao Featuring Andre Dida Amade

Andre "Dida" Amade is a MMA fighter who has been on a bit of a losing streak of late, but found a bit of a niche for himself in K-1's MAX division. After scoring a knockown against renowned Thai fighter Buakaw Por. Pramuk, Dida has been in demand for K-1 MAX events due to his exciting fighting style and immense power he packs. This documentary was done for The Fight Network and was Produced, edited and written by Jorge Barbosa and documents Dida moving to Canada to work with his brother and prepare to fight in K-1 MAX again.

2010 Fight of the Year: Part 1

With It's Showtime's final show completed, the 2010 kickboxing season is pretty much complete.  Outside of a few fights at Dynamite!! and SRC, we've now seen what the year has to offer for action.  So what better time to look back at the best fights of the year?  Here's our first nominee - check back all week for more.

#1 - Tyrone Spong v. Jerome Le Banner (K-1 Yokohama, April 3)

At the time, this looked like it might have been the start of a career resurgence for JLB.  Coming in off his career low at the 2009 GP, Le Banner changed up his training, recommitted himself, and ended up going toe to toe with one of the new generation's rising stars, showing that there still is some fight left in the Hyper Battle Cyborg.  Le Banner's year will sadly be more defined by his temper tantrum walk-out against Kyotaro, but this fight was a real highlight, and easily his best showing in recent years.


Andy Souwer vs Bovy Sor Udomson 2010

This was a quarter-final match-up in the 2010 S-Cup.

Andy Souwer is a two time S-Cup champion and was a heavy favorite to win the fight and progress to the finals. He typically fights a cerebral, point-scoring game that increases in pace as the rounds go on. This is in stark contrast to the damage-absorbing, Terminator style of his opponent.

Bovy Sor Udomson is a legend of Muay Thai with a reputation for being somewhat inhuman in the ring. His uncompromisingly aggressive style won him the Rajadamnern belt at the young age of 19, but his career peaked quickly because of the damage he took. He's moved up slowly in weight from 122 lb super bantamweight to continue fighting at 67-70 kg, 147-154 lb, though with obviously dimmed reflexes.

Bovy wears blue gloves here and Andy the red.
