Interviews

Artem Levin has been the number one fighter on our Liverkick.com Light Heavyweight Rankings for quite some time now. Arguably one of the top pound for pound fighters in the sport if you play that game, he's dominated his opposition for the past few years. He has a fight coming up on March 3 in Russia and another one on March 31. We got the chance to talk to Artem about a plethora of subjects, including his upcoming fights, why he fights the way he does and his future in the sport.

LiverKick: Your next fight is on March 3 against Cheick Sidibe. What do you know about your opponent?

Artem Levin: I’m watching his fight videos. He’s a persistent guy. He’s accenting on knees, using his height, but doesn’t take punches to the head well. He’s characterful. We will see what it is going to be.

LiverKick: Simon Marcus and Joe Schilling are fighting soon. Both of them would like to fight you and Joe Schilling is the interim champion to your world title belt. Will you be keeping an eye on that fight?

Artem Levin: Yes, sure. They are interesting to me. It is expected to be one of the most important fights in career for both. They are looking forward for the next fights. I’m following the things concerned with this fight. It’s going to be a bomb as both don’t recognize a menace in another. Simon has next fight versus Kaoklai on March 16th, and Joe has next fight versus me on March 31st.  Let them define the things between them, and I’m always ready to fight both. You are welcome.

After a bit of a hiatus, AFAV, who have produced numerous great videos of training and behind the scenes footage of Dutch kickboxers is back. This is the "third season" of AFAV and they've kicked it off with a great video of Melvin Manhoef training. The footage takes place in Melvin's new gym. As always, everything about the video is top notch from quality to how the overall project is put together. You can find more of their videos at AFAV.info or on their Youtube channel.

It is safe to say that Daniel Ghita made an impression on fans across the world on January 28th, so much so that his status within the Heavyweight division has shot up and many are considering him to be one of the best, if not the best Heavyweight in the world. It was immediately clear to us that we had to pick Daniel Ghita’s mind and find out what the future holds for him. The only problem is, as is in most cases, Ghita’s english is not as great as it could be, so we reached out instead to his trainer Anil Dunbar to have him translate the questions for us and then translate his answers into English. A special thanks goes to Anil Dubar for making the interview happen as well as Karel ten Haaf for getting us into contact with Mr. Dubar.

First of all, congratulations on the win over Hesdy Gerges. Huge win and incredibly impressive.

Thank you very much, it was a good strategy that my trainer, Anil Dubar choose for me and it worked perfectly.
