GLORY SuperFight Series Tokyo and GLORY 13 Spoilers

Glory 13

GLORY 13 went down last night in the wee hours of the morning, I thank those of you that stayed up to watch the PPV here on LiverKick and apologize for my absence, but sometimes a man gets sick and things happen. Then sometimes you guys overload the site with traffic, which is really cool. Bravo (except for the downtime!). So I'm sure you are wondering who won what, right? Here is a rundown of both the GLORY SuperFight Series and GLORY 13 Tokyo.

If you are waiting for Spike TV later tonight then obviously you should not read the GLORY 13 section, which I'm going to place after a jump for those on the main page.

  • SuperFight Series Tokyo:
  • Sergei Kharitonov (R3 – UD) Jerome LeBanner
  • Hesdy Gerges (R3 – UD) Ewerton Teixeira

MAX Muay Thai Results: Buakaw Beats Kehl, Sagetdao Wins Tournament

Sagetdao

MAX Muay Thai held their last event of the year, MAX Muay Thai The Final Chapter in Thailand today, which saw a huge main event featuring Buakaw Banchamek vs. Enriko Kehl, which always struck me as odd knowing that both Buakaw and Kehl will be fighting for K-1 on December 28th in separate fights, but hey, the more fights featuring these two the better, I say. There was also a 4-man tournament featuring Sagetdao, Andrei Kubelin, Victor Ngabe and Dylan Salvador.

Buakaw and Kehl fought a very tough fight, with Kehl looking good at first, but Buakaw really running away with the fight as it went on, opening up a nasty cut on Kehl's forehead which almost stopped the fight, but the doctors decided that he could continue. Kehl still landed some solid blows throughout, but Buakaw seemed to be on form and had an answer for everything Kehl threw at him.

 

  • Buakaw Banchamek (R3 - Decision) Enriko Kehl
  • Tournament Final: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Victor Ngabe
  • MAX Ultimate: Ekapracha (R1 - TKO) Tomoyuki Nishikawa
  • Tournament: Victor Ngabe (R3 - Decision) Dylan Salvador
  • Tournament: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Andrei Kubelin
  • Khem Sitsongpeenong (R3 - Decision) Vahid Roshani

Saenchai Victorious at Muay Thai Mania Yokkao 5

Saenchai

After the last minute change of not only venues but continents, Muay Thai Mania Yokkao 5 went down without a hitch yesterday in Thailand. The event would have been considered a success even if it wasn't moved on one week's notice, but it really is amazing to look at how they had to move the entire event from Europe to Thailand that quickly and that everything went smoothly. The main event saw a bout between Saenchai and Singdam with both guys trying to win the KO bonus, but Saenchai was just overwhelming and won by points.

  • Saenchai MuayThaiGym won by points vs Singdam Kiatmoo9
  • Sinsamut Sor Klinmee won by points Kom Kop Pechthroungrang
  • Andrea Masini lost by KO ( 2nd round ) Crice Boussoukou
  • Ekapop Sor Klinmee won by KO ( 1st round ) vs Samuel Andoche
  • Iwmiset Pornnarai won by points vs Suedam Kauanjai

Buakaw Victorious Over Yoshihiro Sato at MAX Muay Thai IV

MAX

MAX Muay Thai IV: Sendai went down over the span of last night in Japan in a night that promised some big action with Buakaw facing his stiffest challenge in years by the way of Yoshihiro Sato. They have met three times previous, with Buakaw holding two victories and Sato holding one. That one victory that Sato held was a third round knockout over Banchamek, which made this rematch all the more enticing for fans. Sato showed flashes of brilliance in the first round, but after Banchamek got warmed up he took control over the fight, with Sato not having an answer for Buakaw's sweeps and throws throughout. For many fans, this was an important fight for Banchamek, as his last loss was to Andy Souwer in 2009, but since then the level of competition has been called into question for his fights in Thai Fight and MAX Muay Thai. With Sato being a benchmark it is clear that Banchamek is still in top form against a solid opponent.

Jingreedtong walked away as the victor in the one-night tournament, as well as Aikpracha and HIROYA picking up big wins as well.

MAX Muay Thai IV: Sendai

Buakaw Banchamek (R3 - Decision) Yoshihiro Sato

Final: Jingreedtong (R3 - Decision) Dylan Salvador

Aikpracha Meenayothin (R3 - Decision) Tomoaki Makino

HIROYA (R3 - Decision) Sapanpetch Sit-Itisukato

Semi-Final: Jingreedtong (R3 - Decision) Alessandro Campagna

Semi-Final: Dylan Salvador (R3 - Decision) Yuya Yamato

MAX Muay Thai in China: Buakaw Victorious

MAX

MAX Muay Thai held their last big event on August 10th in China, where newly-signed K-1 fighter Buakaw Banchamek made his return to the ring in actual competition. MAX Muay Thai has picked up the mantle of Thai Fight by having Thailand vs. the World as a running theme and this show was no different, with the Thai fighters facing off against some formidable competition from far away lands. Of course, these fights were a bit more competitive, but the Thai fighters were able to walk away victorious in the end.

Fans might have wanted more fireworks or finishes, but these were some solid fights. You have to remember that Buakaw hasn't fought a real fight in a while now, consider this a tune-up fight.

67kg Tournament: Saketdao (R3 - Dec.) Liam Harrison

Kem Sitsongpeenong (R3 - KO) Maiki Karatanasis

Sittichai Sitsongpeenong (R3 - Dec.) Jordan Watson

Buakaw Banchamek (R3 - Dec.) Dong WenFei

Weekend Results: Thai Fight and MAX Muay Thai

MAX Muay Thai

Man, I picked a pretty packed weekend to go on vacation, didn't I? Then again, most of the weekends are packed and I've been working 60 hour weeks for the past few months, so maybe any weekend would do in that case, right? I kind of agree, just because I needed to not do any work for an extended period of time or else I was fearing that I'd be seeing my walls made out of gold bricks because the Federal Reserve is a conspiracy and driving axes through doors while my girlfriend looks not-so-pleased.

So this weekend there were two bigger events, Thai Fight and MAX Muay Thai, both of the Muay Thai persuasion and both featuring some solid names and solid fights. Thai Fight was the standard Thai Fight fare of bigger name Thais against some okay competition which sees the Thais walk away with some cool looking wins and everyone goes home happy.

MAX Muay Thai gave a bit more by the way of competitive fights to fans, including a one night, four man tournament. There were some legitimately interesting bouts on the card such as Aikpracha against Warren Stevelmans as well as Sitthichai against Juri Jehl and already fans went home with a bit of a better feeling than they did from the Thai Fight card, or, well, at least we all did.

Saenchai Wins at the Hoost Cup - Will He Go to K-1?

Hoost CupThe Hoost Cup went down this weekend, featuring a few interesting fights, namely Saenchai's first "Kickboxing" fight, which has sparked all sorts of speculation as to what his future might be and if he might be headed to K-1 as his sponsor Yokkao has insinuated at on Twitter. It doesn't hurt that K-1 head Mr. Kim has been seen visiting with Stefania, the mastermind behind Yokkao Extreme, either.

The results are as follows;

Yoshihiro Sato (R3 - Dec.) Yuichiro "Jienotsu" Nagashima

Saenchai (R3 - Dec.) Yosuke Mizuochi

Souta Ichinohe (R1 - TKO) Ryuya Kusakabe

Shu Ogawa (R3 - Dec.) Hiroki

Hukashi (R3 - Dec.) Yuto Tsujide

Satoko Sasaki (R3 - Dec.) Maria Pantazi

Now, as for Saenchai and K-1, it is no secret that K-1 is looking to re-establish itself with a new set of stars, and who better than one of the most famous Thai fighters alive today in Saenchai? Saenchai's flashy style has won him tons of fans all over the world and it would make for a perfect and entertaining fit for K-1. Seeing as though Saenchai's natural weight class is around 60kg and his tendency to fight up in weight it wouldn't shock me to see him at 65kgs.

As for Saenchai's relationship with K-1 right now it is still too early to predict what will happen, but LiverKick has been able to confirm that there have been preliminary talks between the two parties, although it is not clear how far these talks have gone.

RISE 93 Results: Komiyama Tops Yuki

Earlier today at Differ Ariake RISE held RISE 93, headlined by a 61kg matchup between 60kg champ Kosuke Komiyama and former 63kg champ Yuki. Also on the card was a matchup between Krush's Yukimitsu Takahashi and RISE #3 Lightweight Yuto Watanabe.

In the main event, Kosuke Komiyama was able to keep his distance and outpoint LiverKick #5 Lightweight Yuki en route to a 3rd round majority decision on scores of 30-28, 29-28 and 29-29. Yuki was unable to get inside and use his power while Komiyama exploited Yuki's weaknesses. This win is the biggest of Komiyama's career and could earn him a shot in a GLORY qualifying tournament next year, though I'm not so sure he'd want to move up to 65kg. Another intriguing matchup would be with Krush champion Hirotaka Urabe or SHIGERU, but he'll probably get an easier matchup as he is expected to fight again at RISE 94 on July 20th. Yuki was unable to bounce back from a one-sided loss to Masaaki Noiri, but put in a good effort here. He may not be a top 10 fighter for much longer due to his struggles against more technical fighters, but he'll continue to be a staple in the Lightweight division due to his power and heart.

In the co-main event, Krush veteran Yukimitsu Takahashi scored an upset just 16 seconds into the fight as he knocked out Yuto Watanabe with a head kick. Known for his flashy style, Takahashi had been more of a point fighter that put on entertaining brawls that rarely ended in finishes. However he picks up his biggest career win in impressive fashion, bouncing back from a loss to Shunsuke Oishi in a fight for the vacant J-Network title. Should he choose to fight for RISE again, I don't see why they wouldn't put him in a title match against Sun Hyun Lee or a #1 contender bout against Yuki. Watanabe had been on a tear lately, with the only blemishes on his record coming in a title fight against Yuki in which Yuki needed a huge comeback to win and against current 63kg champ Sun Hyun Lee, a fight that Watanabe lost in an extension round. This is a big step back for Watanabe, who expected a rematch with Lee if he had won this fight.

At 55kg, DEEP*KICK champ Seiya Rokukawa picked up a decision win over Masayosi Kunimoto. At Heavyweight, Hiromi Amada scored a decision over Kazuki Nojiri. At 60kg, 2012 RISING ROOKIES Cup winner Masanobu Goshu kept his undefeated record with a majority decision over KING. At 70kg, J-Network Super Welterweight champ Ichiro Morimoto knocked out Krush veteran Hareruya in the 1st round. At 55kg Hiroaki Mizuhara returned from a nearly year-long absence and was upset by Yu Kinjo, who scored a 2nd round knockdown and won a unanimous decision. At 63kg, Shohei Asahara snapped a 5-fight losing streak against 2012 RISING ROOKIES Cup winner Yuya Fujita. Finally, 2012 RISING ROOKIES Cup winners Yuta Murakoshi and Keisuke Niwa won their fights against Hikaru Fujikashi and Shunji Miyata, respectively.
