There is something to be said for a fighter always looking to evolve, which Andy Souwer is definitely one of those fighters. Souwer could have stuck to Muay Thai or Kickboxing, but he's always been looking to do different stuff, as we've seen from his experience in Shoot Boxing. Basically, Andy Souwer is an always-evolving athlete who has even though about dabbling in MMA here and there. Souwer's latest excursion has been that he made his Boxing debut this weekend.
Souwer seems excited about the advent of more Boxing fights in the future and that he might try to carve out a bit of a niche for himself in the professional Boxing world.

SuperKombat has reached a new deal with television network EuroSport which has assured that we'll be seeing more SuperKombat events for the years to come. This new, three year extension means that SuperKombat's relationship with EuroSport will continue on in the coming years. SuperKombat has promised that production levels will remain up to the high standards that they've set with their bigger shows from last year, too, which is exciting as we've seen Kickboxing take a bit of a step back from the flashy days of K-1 of late.
“Extending the contract confirms the success of the partnership signed in 2011. We have worked excellent with Eurosport in all these years, both companies are very satisfied. Both, the product and the tv audience had a fast grown so we are confident that this year we will keep the same trend”, said Superkombat Fighting Championship® president Eduard Irimia.

Andre Dida is one of those guys that most of us know from our time staying up super late to watch Japanese events from here in the United States and rightfully so. Dida cut his teeth in Brazil before being called up by K-1 for their HERO*s organization, where he took place in their first Lightweight GP. Dida, who was a relative unknown to Japanese fans at the time, made it all the way to the Finals. From there he went on to appear in DREAM as well as K-1 MAX.
His K-1 MAX stint was weird, to say the least, as K-1 threw him to the wolves early on, so to speak. His first fight was a crazy KO, so then he was moved up in competition. When I say moved up, I mean that his second K-1 fight was against Buakaw Banchamek (then Por. Pramuk). What was crazy was that he nailed Buakaw with some great shots, Buakaw was a king at the time. Buakaw went on to win via decision in an extra round, but Dida earned some serious respect there. He had two more fights in K-1 after that, both of which were still steep climbs up the talent ranks, against Yuichiro Nagashima and Hinata Watanabe.
Dida announced his return today, claiming that he not only wanted to come back to MMA, but to Kickboxing. I'm not sure that he'd be able to just jump right into the deep waters at 70kg right away, but if GLORY or K-1 were to pick him up they'd be able to build him up until he's comfortable and see where he stands, at least. Dida is planning this comeback with Champions Sports Management based out of Stoney Creek, Ontario, a brand of House of Champions gym, headed by Alin Halmagean and Nenad Kuruc.Add a comment
GLORY has released the full card for GLORY 16 Denver today, including the one night GLORY Heavyweight Contender tournament as well as the main event between Nieky Holzken and Marc de Bonte. The surprise on the card is that they will be airing the Reserve bout this time around, mostly due to the fact that it is Pat Barry. Pat Barry will be making his GLORY debut on May 3rd in Denver, which is a pretty big deal.
Here's a look at the card.
GLORY 16 DENVER
K-1's next event will not be the K-1 World MAX Finals, but instead another trip to Spain featuring some of the Spanish talents that they've helped cultivate over the past year or so. It's a solid move seeing as though their events in Spain have drawn good crowds and gotten a good deal of local press. So K-1 will head to Mallorca, Spain on April 12th for "The Battle for Spain," featuring a headlining bout between Maximo Suarez and Elam Ngor.
Here is the fight card per the press release issued today.
