Mix Fight Gala XIII went down yesterday in Frankfurt, Germany. Among names on the card were long time veterans like Warren Stevelmans and Dennis Schneidmiller, and young up and comers like Roman Mailov and Enriko Kehl.
In what was probably the most significant fight on the card, Warren Stevelmans fought Germany's Dennis Schneidmiller in a battle of two members of the GLORY First 16. The fight was close throughout, with both fighters finding their opportunities to land with mostly punch combinations and some occasional low kicks. Schneidmiller would get off first most of the time and by the time Stevelmans was set to throw, Schneidmiller would tie him up in the clinch and get the fight reset by the referee. Schneidmiller ended up winning a decision, probably due to his higher workrate.
In a battle of two prospects, Roman Mailov from Ukraine met the Croatian-German fighter Leo Zulic at 70kg. Despite both fighters coming up from lower weights in recent times, Mailov looked like the much bigger fighter and it showed, with his strikes damaging Zulic a lot more than Zulic's strikes damaging him. Zulic came out with punch combinations while Mailov used the first round as more of a feeling out round. Mailov started to get an edge in the second when he implemented numerous step up knees to the body of Zulic that were clearly wearing the German fighter out. By the third round, Mailov was clearly getting the better of the fight, forcing Zulic into the corner and scoring with punch combinations to the body and end along with more step up knees to the body. The judges called the fight a draw and thus it was supposed to go to an extra round, but Zulic couldn't continue so Mailov got the TKO win.
Dima Weimer beat Alex Schmitt thanks to the help of a few knockdowns and Alexander Braun beat Marco Aschenbrenner by decision. Up and coming 20 year old German fighter Enriko Kehl stopped Dutch-Moroccan fighter Mohammed Medhar in the second round via TKO.
