Thai Fight Results: Buakaw, Singmanee Win Tournaments

Thai Fight Results: Buakaw, Singmanee Win Tournaments

Thai Fight’s last event of 2012 took place today in Bangkok, Thailand and featured the finals of the 67kg and 70kg tournament, along with a four man, one night heavyweight tournament and two super fights.

In the main event, the 70kg final took place between Thai Fight’s main star Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Vitaly Gurkov. Gurkov was the one fighter I thought that might be able to trouble Buakaw a bit with his clinching, but Buakaw repeatedly tossed and dumped him. Gurkov had a bit more success in getting the clinch as the fight went on, but the fight was still largely dominated by Buakaw, who won a decision and won Thai Fight’s 70kg tournament for the second year in a row.

In the 67kg final, a rematch between Singmanee Kaewsamrit and Andrei Kulebin took place. The two first fought in June of this year where Singmanee took a disputed decision in what definitely was not a good fight. This time around it was a pretty fun fight, and Singmanee was able to edge it out with clean round kicks to the body, taking a decision win. Singmanee adapted to the three round format that emphasizes offense over the course of the tournament.

The four man, one night heavyweight tournament saw France’s Patrice Quarteron defeat Dmitry Bezus in the final via decision. The first two fights were not televised, but saw Patrice Quarteron beat Andrei Gerasimchuk and Dmitry Bezus beat James Kouame.

The two super fights were typical Thai Fight mismatches, with Ikuysang Kor. Rungthanakiat blowing out Angelo Veniero in the first round with a KO via elbow and Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee bullying Gustavo Mendes around the ring for the course of the fight to get a decision win.

GLORY 5 London Fight Card

GLORY 5 London Fight Card

GLORY 5 London is coming up on March 23 from the Excel Arena in London, England and already with a main event of Remy Bonjasky vs. Tyrone Spong, the full fight card was released today featuring a number of marquee names and match-ups. The match-ups that had already been announced were Remy Bonjasky vs. Tyrone Spong, along with Jordan Watson vs. Steve Moxon and Liam Harrison vs. Mosab Amrani.

We’ll start off with a battle of a new star and a long time veteran between Andy Ristie and Albert Kraus, which takes place at GLORY’s lightweight limit of 70kg. Ristie broke out on the scene last year before only losing to Andy Souwer at the end of the year. Kraus comes into this fight off winning three fights in one night in China on New Year’s Eve. It’s a good, competitive match-up, as the verdict is still out there on Ristie to some degree.

From there we have a light heavyweight bout, which in GLORY is at 95kg, between the It’s Showtime champ Danyo Ilunga and new signee Stephane Susperregui. It’s another interesting match-up, as Ilunga can get wild and Susperregui is very tricky and unorthodox. It should make for an action packed fight. Another light heavyweight bout on the card sees Raymond Daniels of the United States against a to be determined opponent.

Here’s where it gets really interesting, as Steve Wakeling fights Simon Marcus in GLORY’s middleweight division of 85kg. Both guys are primarily Muay Thai fighters but they’re also some of the best fighters at the respective weights that they’ve fought at. Here both of them will be fighting higher in weight than they normally do but I don’t think it will be a problem as they’re not small guys for the weight anyway. To me this is one of the most intriguing fights on the card.

GLORY 5 London Fight Card

One division below Marcus and Wakeling is the welterweight division in GLORY at 77kg, and that’s where Duoli Chen and Maxim Vorovski will fight. Vorovski has had trouble making 70kg in the past, culminating with him missing weight for the GLORY Final 16 in May. Chen is a quickly rising up and comer at 77kg and last year only had one blemish on his record, losing to L’houcine “Aussie” Ouzgni, which there’s definitely no shame in.

The remaining three fights include some new additions to GLORY. At 70kg, newly signed Johann Fauveau will fight Warren Stevelmans, who despite losing three in a row at one point last year, still managed to end the year on a good note, beating Dzhabar Askerov on something like three day’s notice. This is a good test for Fauveau, who beat Jordan Watson in May and is looking to make a splash on the big stage.

At heavyweight, Singh Jaideep makes his GLORY debut against Yong Soo Park of South Korea. Finally, we have a catchweight fight, though the weight hasn’t been specified, between GLORY Final 8 participant Tim Thomas and new addition Reece McCallister.

GLORY 7 Milan Fight Card For April 20

GLORY 7 Milan Fight Card For April 20

With GLORY 6 Istanbul over, the steady stream of GLORY events continues with GLORY 7 Milan, taking place in Milan, Italy on April 20 with a card headlined by Giorgio Petrosyan taking on Hafid El Boustati.

With the rest of the card under the main event, this might be even better than GLORY 5 and 6 on paper. Right before the main event is the lone heavyweight fight on the card, between two young fighters in different positions, Jhonata Diniz and Rico Verhoeven. Diniz’s coming out party was his spirited loss to Daniel Ghita at the GLORY Grand Slam on New Year’s Eve and he’s still seen as an up and coming fighter. Rico Verhoeven, while also still being very young at almost 24 years of age, has established himself as one of the better heavyweight fighters who has made big strides in the past year.

The next fight sees GLORY #1 ranked 85kg fighter Artem Levin fight GLORY’s #3 ranked 85kg fighter Sahak Parparyan. This will be Levin’s first fight at 85kg, while Sahak has been one of the top fighters at the weight for a few years now. At 77kg, Karapet Karapetyan, coming off a very close loss to GLORY’s #1 ranked 77kg fighter Alexander Stetsurenko, faces the Italian veteran Roberto Cocco.

The lone 95kg bout on the event sees Australia’s Steve McKinnon fight Serbia’s Nenad Pagonis. McKinnon is ranked #3 in GLORY’s 95kg ranking while Pagonis is at #5 there.

This is on top of the whole rest of the card and we have your results for you. Hesdy Gerges picks up a decision victory over Zhuravlev in what was said to be a close contest that saw Gerges use his kicks to keep distance while Zhuravlev looked for the big knockout blow.
