It has been a bit difficult to approach this weekend's KRUSH results, as the show has yet to air in Japan or anywhere else, but there are reports on the internet about them, as opposed to retread on territory that has already been covered by people at the show, I defer you, our readers to K-1's official site for our friend Stuart Tonkin's write up of the event. Tonkin has been covering events for K-1's official site for years now and was live in the arena for the event. So here, your photo of the day, is KRUSH's newly-crowned Triple Champions.

Some news is just bizarre sometimes, while other news is interesting. In the case of Semmy Schilt, just about anything that happens to him is pretty interesting. The four-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion is set to appear in an upcoming Dutch film based on Dutch explorer Willem Balentsz. Schilt is set to appear as a member of Barentsz's crew and yes, he will appear with a full beard, this report states.

Fight Code held yet another event today, in cooperation with Wako-Pro who held a Croatia vs. Hungary tournament on the undercard as well as placed Bob Sapp in the main event. The Fight Code portion of the event aired live on Fight Code's website and if you for some reason missed the action, the fights are up for your viewing pleasure.
The Super Fights were interesting to say the least, with each bout set to feature a certain fighter for the upcoming Rhinos tournament. Vitali Akhramenko squared off with Gyorgy Mihalik. Mihalik was able to hold his own throughout a good portion of the first two rounds but had a lot of trouble in the third, just barely surviving the fight. Akhramenko was simply too powerful and technical for Mihalik and the bout was clearly to feature him.
Timhar Brunner was given a dubious task of fighting Miladen Brestovac. Brestovac was able to easily walk right through Brunner within mere moments. Honestly, Brunner was not in the game at all for this bout and was completely out-classed.
Freddy Kemayo, a name that many know quite well from It's Showtime got a victory for himself, getting himself some great forward momentum for the Rhino Series tournament. Corneliu Rus was his opponent and he put forth a valid effort, but against a tried-and-true competitor like Kemayo, swarming him early on with only a select few shots landing is not how you fight him. Kemayo has been around the block a few too many times and simply weathered the storms while covering up and taking minimal, if any damage. Rus was then caught off-guard and knocked down by Kemayo and stumbled back to his feet. Freddy just moved in and one lone punch sent Rus into the ropes before crumbling for good, not knowing where he was.
If for some reason you are interested in Bob Sapp, he was destroyed by Tivadar Kunkli after being knocked down three times.
As for the Dragon's Series Tournament, it was not without early controversy. Norbert Balough clearly outworked Luka Tomic before the bout was declared a draw. This simply set a fire under him as he took Tomic down in the extension round with a head kick. In the second of the tournament bouts, Yuri Bessmerty put on a bit of a show against his opponent, Selmedin Didic. He essentially just worked him over for three rounds while taunting him but never went in for the kill. In the third bout, Halim Issaoui pulled off an interesting upset over British Muay Thai standout Simon Chu. Chu looked confident early on before getting dropped in the first, held on for the second and did his best to rally in the third, but it was not enough to secure him a victory.Add a comment
Next week there is a big show at Lumpini Stadium and in the feature bout is One of Thailand's top Nak Muay's Sam-A Thor Ratonakiat taking on the the recent winner of the sportswriters association of Thailand fighter of the year, Kongsak Sitboonmee. The fight will be at 125 pounds. Sam-A is coming up a bit, and Kongsak is coming down a little. It should be a very technical, and interesting fight.
Watch as Sam-A showcases his amazing kicks, and after sends a strong message to Kongsak.
