Superstar Actor Idris Elba to Fight in Kickboxing For Reality Series

One of the biggest stories that amounted to nothing for the kickboxing world was Jean-Claude Van Damme's desire to fight Somluck Kamsing in a kickboxing fight. The fight was teased for years, with the revival of JCVD's acting career getting in the way of his dream to prove to the world that his fighting credentials were for real and that he was an actual tough guy. The last we heard of this was JCVD jumping into the ring during one of Kamsing's fights in Thailand where he found himself in trouble, with Van Damme jumping into the ring in between rounds and attempting to fan his would-be challenger in an attempt to help him. Instead, Kamsing was disqualified. 

That was it for JCVD's big fight and perhaps we'll never hear about it again, but now an even bigger name has made a commitment to kickboxing; Idris Elba. Elba, the man who went from being Stringer Bell in The Wire to Luther on BBC to being a Hollywood leading man with everyone calling for him to portray James Bond, is probably at his peak popularity right now. His most recent role was as the main villain in Star Trek: Beyond with a lot more on the horizon.

But at age 43 he's following a dream of his, which is to fight professionally. During his 20's he trained kickboxing to keep himself in shape and considered fighting, but instead he found himself landing steady acting gigs, leaving his dream behind. Now, thanks to a partnership with Discovery Networks, he's back in training to be a kickboxer and the whole thing will be recorded and presented for audiences. 

The show is called Idris Elba: Fighter and will follow Elba throughout the span of a year, documenting his training across the world as well as his fight. Who he will be training with and who the fight will be against are a mystery, but the whole thing is said to air in early 2017.

Krush 68 Fight Card

Krush 68 takes place tonight in Nagoya, Japan at the Nagoya Congress Center. The card will air live on Abema.tv if you are "IN" Japan, it wont be on their sports channel this time but on their designated fight channel which is shown by some Japanese kanji symbols. Aside from the great talent and usual crazy fights Krush always gives us this card as a special exhibition between Kaew Weerasakreck the K-1 65kgs champ and Takeru the K-1 55kgs champ. The fight is 3x2min rounds, I wonder how hard they will actually go. Hopefully its the type of exhibition that Masato and Kid Yamamoto had where Kid got dropped multiple times.

Kuroudo vs Shun Kato

Daiki Shimizu vs Takuma Kawaguchi

Seiya Ueda vs Kazuyuki Yamashita

Kentaro Miyachi vs Syun Kentoshi

Now the events aren't as stacked as Kunlun Fight 50 but there are some very interesting match ups including the return of Marc De Bonte to kickboxing, Hicham El Gaoui's Kunlun Debut, Andrei Herasimchuk in a heavyweight tournament and a 65kgs tournament. Adding Marc De Bonte and Hicham El Gaoui to the 80kgs division makes things very interesting.

Sadly, this is the fight game, Catalin Morosanu is not the type of guy to pull out of a fight for any small thing so as he posted on his facebook he has been advised by doctors that he has a Herniated Disc that requires surgery. He seems truly upset about not being able to represent his country and make his fans proud but assures he will be back and give it his all. We wish Catalin Morosanu all the best, a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him fight again soon.

Robin van Roosmalen Returns to MMA In September For FFC26

Saying "former GLORY Lightweight Champion" in regards to Robin van Roosmalen is still going to take some getting used to -- both for us and for him -- but the now-former lightweight champion will be returning to MMA on September 23rd in Austria, once again under the FFC banner at FFC 26.

Van Roosmalen's second professional MMA bout will be the headliner of the show, featuring him against 0-2 Hungarian fighter Zoltan Turai. The kickboxing portion of the card is headlined by a 77kg title bout between Shkodran Veseli and Eyevan Danenberg. Also on the card is Mladen Brestovac back in action against Damian Garcia and Samo Petje against Leo Zulic. You can find more info at FFC's website.
