W5 Grand Prix Moscow Results: Wielzen Wins Title

w5

Yesterday in Moscow, Russia, Fight Code along with W5 held an event featuring a Fight Code portion of the card and a W5 portion of the card. The Fight Code portion was shown on Fight Code's stream and W5 wasn't, so everyone was left in the dark about the W5 portion. The W5 portion was shown on Russian TV and videos should be uploaded soon.

In the main event of the W5 portion, former It's Showtime 61MAX World Champion Sergio Wielzen took on Russian fighter Ruslan Tozliyan for the W5 World Title at 60kg. The fight started off fast and Wielzen was knocked down in the first round. It was tough to tell if it was a slip or a legit knockdown because a very strange canvas was being used that had fighters slipping on it all night. Wielzen rallied back and hurt Tozliyan multiple times throughout the rest of the fight. The knockdown made the fight pretty close but Wielzen got a unanimous decision to become the W5 -60kg champion. Next for Wielzen is current It's Showtime 61MAX World Champion Javier Hernandez at It's Showtime's card in Tenerife on November 12th.

In the co-main event, Maxim Smirnov fought Maxim Shalnev at 70kg. About halfway through the first round, Smirnov started to get into a rhythm with his hands and started consistently finding the mark on his opponent. Shalnev was hurt by punches in the first and it continued in the second. Shalnev got cracked with a left hook and staggered, causing the referee to call a halt to the bout in the second round. Smirnov didn't take much damage and should be ready for his fight against Dzhabar Askerov next month at the Tatneft Cup 2011 Finals.

Highly touted up and comer Aziz Kallah made the venture to Moscow to fight 17-year-old Alim Nabiev. In what was quite surprising, Nabiev controlled the fight with his height and range and landed significant strikes on Kallah for most of the fight. If I were to make comparisons, I'd say he looked like a mixture of Artem Levin and Yoshihiro Sato. Only at the very end of the fight did Kallah come on strong. Nabiev picked up a unanimous decision and he's definitely one to look out for in the future, being just 17 years old and already beating the likes of Aziz Kallah.

Full results below:

W5 60kg World Title fight (5x3):

Sergio Wielzen def. Ruslan Tozliyan by Unanimous Decision.

TK2 World MAX 2011 Results

As you may or may not know, this Saturday, Fight Code held an event in conjunction with TK2, featuring a one night, eight man tournament on the TK2 portion of the card. Fight Code only showed their own Fight Code portion of the card on their stream, so we had no opportunity to watch the TK2 portion of the card.

Yohan Lidon and Leroy Kaestner were scheduled for the tournament but it seems both of them pulled out. I'd assume Lidon pulled out due to his MPL fight next month in the Netherlands and he has a fight in France against Gregory Choplin a month after that. As for Kaestner, rumors are swirling that he's actually retired from kickboxing altogether. Nothing is one hundred percent certain though about his future though. Lidon was supposed to fight Ait Said and Kaestner was supposed to fight Ismael Uzuner, both in the quarter finals.

Chris van Venrooij went on to win the tournament. The tournament is a nice feather in his cap, as he's come up short against most of the higher up fighters he's faced. Every fight on the TK2 portion went to decision. Check out the full results below:

Superfight
Fabrice Aurieng def. German Talbot by decision.

Final
Chris van Venrooij def. Ait Said by decision.

Wallid Haddad def. Niclas Larsen by decision.

SuperKombat World Grand Prix IV Results

Yesterday, SuperKombat held their final installment of their qualifying World Grand Prix series in Piatra Neamt, Romania. All four shows in the series have been in different Romanian cities, setting up the final World Grand Prix event in Darmstadt, Germany. The winners of each tournament of the World Grand Prix series face off in a one night, four man tournament at the SuperKombat World Grand Prix Final.

The two main names in the tournament, Wendell Roche and Erhan Deniz had little trouble dispatchnig their semi final opponents and met in the final. In what at times was a bit of a stinker, Deniz managed to get a decision victory over Roche. His kicks probably won him the fight, as he'd throw body kicks in succession that really looked great for the judges.

Bogdan Stoica returned after his injury suffered against Hakan Aksoy in July. He faced Leon Miedema and was in control of most of the fight, landing the much more significant offense, getting him a unanimous decision. The fight was at 92kg which is pretty high for Stoica to be fighting at. It leads me to believe he put on a bit of weight while he was injured and although he didn't look out of shape at all, he looked a tad softer than usual. I'd expect Stoica's next fight to be somewhere between 85 and 90kgs.

In other fights, Catalin Morosanu picked up a unanimous decision over late replacement Ibrahim Aarab and Sebastian Ciobanu picked up a split decision over Ali Cenik. Check out the full results below:

Reserve Fight: Jantje Siersema def. Lucian Danilencu by Split Decision in an Extra Round.

Semi Final 1: Erhan Deniz def. Angelis Konstantinos by KO (Punches) in Round 2.

Semi Final 2: Wendell Roche def. Marian Baryla by TKO (Low Kicks) in Round 3.

Bogdan Stoica def. Leon Miedema by Unanimous Decision.

Diogo Neves def. Ionut Atodiresei by Unanimous Decision.

Sebastian Ciobanu def. Ali Cenik by Split Decision.

Ionut Iftimoaie def. Luca Panto by Unanimous Decision.

Catalin Morosanu def. Ibrahim Aarab by Unanimous Decision.

Alexandru Lungu def. Bob Sapp by KO (Left Hook) in Round 1.

Final: Erhan Deniz def. Wendell Roche by decision.

Fight Code Dragons Final 8 Live Results

Fight Code hosts their Dragons Series Final 8 card today and Liverkick.com will be here to keep you up to date with live results. The event starts at 4:15 PM EST/1:15 PM PST on www.livefightcode.tv. All you have to do is register and you'll be able to watch a great stream for free. We'll be discussing the event on Twitter at @Liverkickdotcom and @rianscalia.

Dragons Final 8

Norbert Balogh def. Bruno Franchi by DQ (Illegal Knee) in Round 2. Franchi hit Balogh with a knee right as the referee told them to break and Balogh couldn't continue. I thought the end result was a bit stupid and Franchi could've been awarded a TKO.

Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee def. Halim Issaoui by TKO (Referee Stoppage/Punches) in Round 3. Sudsakorn low kicked the shit out of Issaoui and at one point in Round 2during a referee count, Issaoui ran over and tried to strike Sudsakorn, almost resulting in things getting out of control. Sudsakorn finished Issaoui off in Round 3 with punches.

Yuri Bessmertny def. Armen Petrosyan by Split Decision.

Abdallah Mabel def. Xu Yan by Split Decision.

Super Fights

Chingiz Allazov def. Raouf Beliouz by TKO (Referee Stoppage). One sided ass kicking here.

MuayThai Premier League Second Round Results

The MuayThai Premier League held their second event yesterday in Padova, Italy and it featured a ton of familiar names. Unlike their inaugural event, this one had little steam behind it and not even a live stream to watch. No one has seen the fights yet and we're just going off what we're hearing. The results are all confirmed, and a few of them weren't without controversy:

CATEGORY -63.5KG – SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT
Ilona Wijmans (NED) def. Chantal Ughi (ITA) by Decision
Tainara Lisboa (BRA) def. Sandra Bastian (CAN) by Split Decision

CATEGORY -66.6 KG – WELTERWEIGHT
Saiyok Pumpanmuang (THA) def. Mauro Serra (ITA) by Decision
Mohammed Khamal (MOR) def. Liam Harrison (UK) by Split Decision

CATEGORY -72.5KG – MIDDLEWEIGHT
Vladimir Moravcik (SVK) vs. Rosario Presti (ITA) fight to a DRAW
Ky Hollenbeck (USA) def. Jordan Watson (UK) by Decision

CATEGORY -82.5KG – LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT
Marc De Bonte (AUS) def. Jiri Zak (CZE) by Split Decision
Kaoklai Kaennorsing (THA) def. Roberto Cocco (ITA) by Decision

CATEGORY -95KG – HEAVYWEIGHT
Ramazan Ramazanov (RUS)def. Chris Knowles (UK) by KO

SUPERFIGHT:
Kaopon Lek (THA) def. Charles Francois (FRA) by TKO in Round 3 (Cut)

There was controversy surrounding Ky Hollenbeck's victory over Jordan Watson, and an appeal has been filed. The controversy stems from a knockdown in the first round, in which Watson feels it shouldn't have been a knockdown. Also, the split decision for Mohammed Khamal over Liam Harrison was appealed by Harrison and his team. Last but not least, apparently the decision in the Kaoklai Kaennorsing-Roberto Cocco fight was questionable as well.

We'd all really love to see the fights, and hopefully they can get out on the internet soon. If not, we'll have to wait until the event is aired on Eurosport in Europe or The Score in Canada. The MPL should do a better job next time of not only promoting the event but also providing a stream for fans who want to watch.

Among the names featured in the tournament are Andy Souwer, Artur Kyshenko, Chris Ngimbi and Robin van Roosmalen.

70kg Quarter Final: Artur Kyshenko vs. Gago Drago

Artur Kyshenko wins by TKO (Referee Stoppage) in Round 3. Kyshenko dominated the fight and looked monstrous. Drago just seemed flat, like his past outings. Kyshenko dropped Drago once in the third and then swarmed him until the referee stopped the fight.

70kg Quarter Final: Andy Souwer vs. Harut Grigorian

Andy Souwer wins by decision in an extra round. Grigorian came out guns blazing, surprising everyone and putting it on Souwer. Souwer rallied back in Rounds 2 and 3, getting an extension round where he took over the fight. This was a great back and forth fight.

70kg Quarter Final: Chris Ngimbi vs. Murat Direkci

Chris Ngimbi wins by Unanimous Decision. Ngimbi got a knockdown in round 2 that sealed the fight for him. It could be argued that this should've went to an extra round with Direkci winning round 1 and 3.

70kg Quarter Final: Robin van Roosmalen vs. Chahid Oulad el Hadj

Robin van Roosmalen wins by TKO (Corner Stoppage) in Round 2. The first round was really close, back and forth non stop action. van Roosmalen took over in the second and gave a standing count to Chahid where Chahid's corner threw in the towel. Looked like Chahid might have a broken jaw.

73kg Super Fight: Yassin Baitar vs. Marat Grigorian

Marat Grigorian wins by Majority Decision (4-1). It was not a bad fight, just the other fights were so good that it made this look somewhat bad. Grigorian didn't look as great as his previous outings, but he turned it up in the third round.

70kg Semi Final: Andy Souwer vs. Artur Kyshenko

Artur Kyshenko wins by Unanimous Decision. The first two rounds were very close but in the third, Kyshenko hurt Souwer, dropping him twice. Souwer was on wobbly legs for a large portion of the third.

70kg Semi Final: Chris Ngimbi vs. Robin van Roosmalen

Robin van Roosmalen wins by Unanimous Decision. van Roosmalen controlled the with his his combos. Ngimbi had trouble getting of.

77kg Title Match: Murthel Groenhart vs. Artem Levin

Artem Levin wins by KO (Knee) in Round 5. Ugly fight, but Levin got the job done with a knee to the body.

95+kg Super Fight: Rustemi Kreshnik vs. Moises Baute

Rustemi Kreshnik wins by KO (Right Hook) in Round 2.

70kg Final: Artur Kyshenko vs. Robin van Roosmalen

Robin van Roosmalen wins by KO (Left Hook) in Round 1. What a shocker, van Roosmalen caught Kyshenko perfectly and Kyshenko couldn't beat the count. van Roosmalen wins the tournament.

Thailand vs. Europe Recap: Danyo Ilunga Victorious

Muay Thai promotion Elite Boxing continued their expansion yesterday, holding another event in their Thailand vs. Challengers series, Thailand vs. Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. The event was live on Eurosport in Germany and parts of Europe, most notably England. It did considerably well for gate expectations, nearly selling out the Carl Benz Arena, which seats around 2000 people. Serdar Karaca of Elite Boxing subsidiary, Elite Boxing Germany has done a good job in promoting the event domestically and should produce even better results when Elite Boxing returns to Germany in November.

Headlining the card was It's Showtime 95MAX World Champion, Danyo Ilunga. Ilunga was originally scheduled to face Ramazan Ramazanov, but Ramazanov pulled out sometime in the past few weeks. Netherlands based Palestinean fighter Mohamed Boubkari took Ramazanov's place and certainly wasn't an easy match-up for Ilunga. Ilunga picked up a three round unanimous decision, but it seems that he had some trouble with Boubkari. German site Groundandpound.de described Boubkari as "a tough nut to crack" for Ilunga. This was Ilunga's second time fighting for Elite Boxing, as he fought for them in November of last year.

The rest of the card featured Thailand vs. Europe themed matches. Europe didn't fair too well, with Thailand winning three out of the four. Jaochalam Monggudton defeated Andi Roegner, Tanongdet Sengsimeu defeated Crice Boussoukou and Nongsai Sor Sanyakorn defeated Ait Said, all three by decision. Anatoly Hunanyan defeated Madsua by decision in Europe's lone win.

The event is a step in the right direction for Elite Boxing, who seem to know what they're doing. They've made some smart moves in creating subsidiaries in countries that they're expanding to, such as Elite Boxing Germany and Elite Boxing Russia. This allows the subsidiaries who know the platform of the country and have connections domestically to do the promoting. Many foreign entities make the mistake of trying to venture into unfamiliar territory with just themselves. Elite Boxing is handling this the right way.

Andrei Stoica Gets Upset in Romania

Yesterday in Romania at the WAKO Pro World Grand Prix semi finals, Andrei Stoica met Jovan Kaludjerovic, a Serbian fighter at a weight of 94.1kg (207 lbs). Stoica is regarded as one of the top fighters in the weight range from 85-95kg. He beat another one of the top fighters in this weight range, Henriques Zowa in July and lost to Redouan Cairo in April. This alone just shows what a mess the 85-95kg range in kickboxing is.

No one expected Stoica to lose yesterday though. Kaludjerovic was an unknown for the most part and Stoica had a good showing in his win over Henriques Zowa. Stoica looked to be in control of the fight until he got caught with a crisp counter left hook, putting him on the canvas. Stoica looked very wobbly on his feet when he got up and Kaludjerovic swarmed the Romanian fighter. After a second count from the referee, this one a standing count, Stoica's corner threw in the towel.

This result just adds to the mess of 85-95kg. A new face in Kaludjerovic is thrown into the mix while an established name takes a step back. It'll be interesting to see what opportunities Kaludjerovic will get after this big win.
