Results From K-1 World Grand Prix Japan Super Bantamweight Tournament

K-1 Japan put forth another solid effort this weekend with their Super Bantamweight (55kg) tournament that saw Yoshiki Takei walk away victorious in the eight-man field with a decision victory in the finals over Kenji Kubo. Takei pulled off a TKO victory over Antonio Orden in the quarterfinals, followed by a first round TKO of Keisuke Ishida to lock his position in the finals. Kubo defeated Suen Takchuen in the quarters and knocked out Nobuchika Terado in the semi-finals to lock in his place before he fell to Takei. 

Kaew Weerasakreck defended his Super Lightweight title against the very tough Hideaki Yamazaki with a decision victory while Takeru provided that trademark Takeru violence against a very game Victor Saravia, putting Saravia down in the third round. Saravia was relatively fearless, in the second round the two taunting each other, wagging tongues in the other's direction before they both just threw down in a crazy exchange to finish out the round. The action kicked off quickly in the third, Saravia landing a left hook only to wake Takeru up and somehow make him more aggressive. An unintentional low blow to Takeru left a brief pause in the action before Takeru's left hand starting to hit its target. Saravia became more tentative and it was only a matter of time before a Takeru flurry sent him reeling, with a right and left connecting while Saravia's body went limp and fell to the canvas.

LiverKick Podcast for April 20th - GLORY 40 Preview, Bellator Kickboxing and More

With GLORY 40 just on the horizon and Bellator Kickboxing coming off of two big shows it felt like the right time for the SS LiverKick Podcast to set sail again. This time we got it done more than a day before the show we were previewing, truly a herculean feat if there ever was one. So join myself and Jay Jauncey as we run down the GLORY 40 card, spend less time complaining about four-men tournaments than we've ever done before and perhaps even get some insight into what went into Josh Jauncey's preparation for his upcoming fight seeing as though Jay is his coach. 

Maybe not, though. That's for me to know and for you to find out by listening to the LiverKick Podcast.
