Yesterday, as you probably know, it was announced that It's Showtime was acquired by GLORY and that GLORY became the definite number one kickboxing organization in the world. Simon Rutz gave a speech about the acquisition, detailing everything that's gone on over the years and how now everything will change, and it's true as this changes the global kickboxing landscape forever. Golden Glory TV was at the scene and got some footage from the brains and the men with the money behind GLORY, like Pierre Andurand. Bas Boon, Pierre Andurand and others in on the deal talk about what this means with GLORY now being the number one kickboxing organization in the world. Pierre Andurand even brings out his inner fan of the sport, saying he'd like to see fights like Tyrone Spong vs. Gokhan Saki. Check out the video.

class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" Watch John Wayne Parr's Amazing Retirement KO Over Jordan Tai

It is impossible not to respect John Wayne Parr and the career that he has had. We, as fans fully support his decision to retire from fighting and understand that injuries catch up and after a while your body stops doing what it used to do. Hell, JWP told us after the fight that he broke his finger again, the same one as before that left him sidelined, in the first punch of the fight. That being said, he put up footage from the fourth round of his retirement fight, and I'll be damned if he looked slow or like he had a broken anything.

If you have a Twitter account, go ahead and send some well wishes to @JohnWayneParr

class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" Video: Saenchai Wins 6 Days After Big Win Over Penek

Saenchai had a huge, dominating win over Penek Sitnumnoi at Lumpinee Stadium on June 8. He wasn't going to rest though, as just six days later on June 14 in France, he took on Mehdi Zatout at 65kg. That's crazy considering his fight on June 8, he fought at just about 58kg. That means he jumped 8kg, or 17.6lbs in weight.

Facing way bigger fighters is nothing new to Saenchai as he's done it numerous times, and he still continues to win them all, aside from a robbery loss to Fabio Pinca in January. His fight against Mehdi Zatout was more of the same, with Saenchai beating a solid, much larger fighter.
