Mix Fight Gala XIII In Germany, Saturday: Stevelmans, Schneidmiller, Mailov, More

On Saturday, Mix Fight Gala XIII is going down in Frankfurt, Germany at the Fraport Arena, which holds up to 5000 people. It's got some good names and up and comers on the card, showcasing the German kickboxing scene as well as some international talent. Germany always has some good events and this one's no different.

Dutch up and comer Miles Simson starts off the card, taking on Mohesen Maradian of Iran at 72.5kg. Simson recently got the biggest win of his career back in May when he defeated Nonsai at SLAMM, dropping him with a high kick in the process. Simson is young and growing, so don't be surprised if he's fighting at a higher weight class in the future.

At 80kg, Omar Amrani and Priest West fight in an all-German affair. Amrani is really more like a 70kg fighter but decided recently to move up and hasn't had much success, losing to Errol Koning. West is a long time veteran who is still active and solid in Germany at 38 years old.

In a real battle of prospects at 70kg, Leo Zulic takes on Roman Mailov, who just won on August 24 and is making a quick turnaround. Both guys have come up from around 65-67kg and Mailov has gotten wins over the likes of William Diender. Mailov is only 20 years old and still will probably get a lot better while Zulic is in his mid twenties. Expect a close, competitive fight.

In some more all-German action, Alex Schmitt, who's been around a while and lost to Albert Kraus last year takes on Dima Weimer, who defeated Shemsi Beqiri around two years ago. Weimer is the one to look for here, as he's been getting a bit of a push in Germany recently.

Here's where the action really heats up. In a battle of two participants in the GLORY 70kg First 16, Warren Stevelmans fights Dennis Schneidmiller at 72.5kg. Both fighters lost in the First 16 but have always been solid throughout their careers. Warren's the bigger fighter here, has more power and a more proven track record against top competition.

In another 72.5kg fight, German up and comer Enriko Kehl takes on Mohammed Medhar out of Holland. Medhar had a big win over Gago Drago back in 2010 but seems to have fallen off since then, not winning that often. Kehl is 20 years old and has already fought around the world, also taking on Nonsai two weeks after this fight. Full fight card below, including both the kickboxing and MMA fights.

Jerome Le Banner, Tyrone Spong In MMA World Series Of Fighting

The MMA World Series of Fighting is an upstart MMA promotion in the United States, and it appears that a few big name kickboxers will be part of their roster.

Jerome Le Banner and Tyrone Spong are listed as part of the MMA World Series of Fighting's roster on its website. Both guys go wherever the money is, so they must've gotten some good deals.

Le Banner has a 3-2 record in MMA and has an upcoming MMA fight in Poland on September 15 for KSW against Marcin Rozalski. He's been in the US for some time now, in California and Las Vegas, training for that fight.

Spong has openly talked about fighting in MMA, and it just seemed like a matter of when he would. He's been at the Blackzillians camp with Alistair Overeem and Rashad Evans for a while, learning MMA while still competing in kickboxing. 

Both Le Banner and Spong have contracts with GLORY and will fight for them in the future. First, they'll be competing in the GLORY Grand Slam in December, a one night, sixteen man kickboxing tournament in Tokyo, Japan. 


Nieky Holzken vs. L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni Rematch At Muay Thai Mania This Weekend

While we're all waiting around for the big events and the big name fights to happen, there still is some good kickfighting action going on around the world every weekend. This weekend is no different.

Muay Thai Mania is taking place on this Sunday, September 2 in The Hague, Netherlands and is headlined by the rematch between Nieky Holzken and L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni. Their first fight took place back in 2010 at It's Showtime in Amsterdam where Aussie finished Holzken in the first minute with a flying knee. A lot has changed since then, with Holzken looking great lately, settling in to a higher weight around 76kg and Aussie not fighting that often, going from between 70kg all the way up to 79kg. This is a really great fight, and it takes place at 76kg.

Hafid el Boustati is also back fighting for the first time since his major upset win over Robin van Roosmalen. He takes on Hysni Beqiri, he brother of Shemsi Beqiri in what is Hysni's biggest test to date.

There are more It's Showtime veterans on the card, with Jason Wilnis fighting Louis Tavares. Wilnis is coming off a loss to Cheick Sidibe at It's Showtime's May 12 event but at only 21 years of age, he's still considered a bright prospect. Darryl Sichtman fights Aalviar Lima at 76kg and William Diender faces Mandela Antoine at 72.5kg. Add in a SuperKombat veteran, as Hakan Aksoy fights Nathan van't Hoft at 96kg.

Albert Kraus also makes his pro boxing debut against a to be announced opponent. All the A Class fights are listed below.
