Top King World Series unveil tournament bracket

As previously announced, Top King World Series will be hosting their third and final event of 2014 from the Asia World Expo in Hong Kong on December 20th. The match-ups have now been unveiled for the quarter finals of their 70kg tournament.

Buakaw is a strong favorite to win the tournament and has coincidentally been given the easiest route to the final. Buakaw will take on Dmytro Konstantynov of Ukraine. Buakaw decimated Moxon in the opening round, ruining the Australian with knees to the body before eventually finishing him with an elbow. Konstantynov defeated Giorgio Petrosyan's younger brother Armen via unanimous decision. 

The winner will go on to face the winner Khayal Dzhaniev and Andrei Kulebin who both won their previous contests via decision.

The match-up of the round is without a doubt Niclas Larsen vs. Marat Grigorian. Both are two of the best prospects at 70kg and made it to the quarter finals with very impressive performances. Larsen destroyed Vladimir Konsky with his patented right hand in the first round 

whereas Grigorian defeated karate stylist Abraham Roqueni via unanimous decision. This should play out to be a terrific stylistic clash, as Larsen will likely aim to finish this within the distance with his heavy hands meanwhile Grigorian will look to

utilize his immaculate technique and pinpoint accuracy to out-land Larsen over the course of three rounds.

Providing no one is injured or unable to continue in the tournament the winner of Grigorian/Larsen will meet either Reece McAllister or Marcin Parcheta in the semi-finals. McAllister turned in a career-best performance in the opening round, blitzing hometown favorite Crice Boussoukou with a combination of punches and knees in the opening round. Parcheta also scored an impressive stoppage as he knocked out Azize Hlali in the third round.

Lion Fight 20 announced for February 20th 2015

Lion Fight Promotions have just announced their first show of 2015. Lion Fight 20 will take place on February 20th at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

In the main event Jorina Baars will get to defend her title for the first time since winning it at Lion Fight 14 against Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino. She will face Casey Bohrman who only has a record of 8 wins and 5 losses but has fought big names like Germaine DeRandamie.

The Co-main event will feature Chris Mauceri coming off his win over Coke Chunhawat against another tough test originally from Thailand but now training in Atlanta Sittisak. Maybe a win in this fight will give one of them a chance to take the title from Kevin Ross.

The card will be broadcast on AXS TV which means we will get our dose of Michael “The Voice” Schiavello and he will be joined by UFC hall of famer Pat Miletich to do the commentary.

The card will also include:

  • 123 lbs. Bout: Jason Andrada (Las Vegas, NV) vs. John Nofer (Philadelphia, PA)
  • 140 lbs. Bout: Tom Evans (Central Fall, RI) vs. Julio Pena (Boston, MA)
  • 135lbs. Bout: Tim Amorim (Philadelphia, PA) vs. Bryce Lawrence (Naples, FL)
  • 143 lbs. Bout: Gaston Bolanos (Dublin, CA) vs. TBD

Video: Josh Jauncey vs. Jae-Gil Noh From GLORY 18

GLORY 18 might be in the books and we might be kind of frustrated with the lack of information about GLORY 19, but we can at least bask in the glory (no pun intended) of watching from the SuperFight Series the fight between Josh Jauncey and Jae-Gil Noh. Watch Jauncey just dismantle Noh in the second round here in what was just a beautiful display.
