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.

Shemsi Beqiri Wins 4-Man Tournament in Switzerland

shemsibeqiri
Yesterday in Basel, Switzerland, Super Pro held a night of fights that featured a 4-man tournament. Among the participants were Rachid Belaini, Miodrag Olar, Philippe Salmon and Shemsi Beqiri. French fighter Farid Villaume was originally scheduled to face Shemsi Beqiri in the semi-finals but Salmon took his place.

Rachid Belaini and Miodrag Olar met in the semi-finals, with Belaini advancing. Shemsi Beqiri and Philippe Salmon faced off on the other side of the bracket, with Beqiri advancing to the final with a decision. Beqiri took a decision over Belaini in the final to win the tournament and a prize of 20 000 Euros. That's quite a big purse for kickboxing, equivalent to $27 341 in American dollars.

The tournament was Beqiri's first time fighting since January, where he lost a somewhat controversial decision to Yoshihiro Sato in Japan. I myself thought that it should've gone to an extra round. It's unusual for Beqiri to fight this little, as last year he fought twelve times. Beqiri is a solid fighter, and at only 25 years of age still has a lot ahead of him for his kickboxing career.

Fight Code Rhinos - Debrecen, Hungary: Live Results

We'll be providing live results of today's Fight Code Rhinos event in Debrecen, Hungary. The show gets kicked off at 3PM EST/12PM PST. You can watch free on www.livefightcode.tv, all you have to do is sign up.

Kickboxing has been relatively slow lately in terms of events you can actually watch live so I recommend checking Fight Code out today. Chingiz Allazov and Philippe Salmon are some names to watch out for in the future. Vitaly Akhramenko is one of the most underrated heavyweights out there also and is working his way up the ladder of the division.

Results:

Prestige Fight: Chingiz Allazov vs Gabor Gorbics

Chingiz Allazov wins by TKO (Low Kicks). Allazov set the pace in the first round, slowly breaking down Gorbics. In the second, Allazov rocked Gorbics with a high kick and then put him down with a right hand. Gorbics got up but Allazov stormed him and low kicked him until the corner threw the towel.

Prestige Fight: Philippe Salmon vs Barna Szucs

Philippe Salmon wins by Decision over 3 rounds. Good, action packed fight.

Rhino Fight: Pacome Assi vs Luca Panto

Pacome Assi wins by Decision in an Extra Round. Close fight, Assi took over the extra round with his hands.

Rhino Fight: Vjekoslav Bajic vs Petr Vondracek

Petr Vondracek wins by Decision over 3 rounds. In Round 2, Bajic knocked Vondracek down but Vondracek came back at the end of the round and forced a standing 8 count on Bajic.

Rhino Fight: Mihail Tuterev vs Gyorgy Mihalik

Mihail Tuterev wins by TKO (Referee Stoppage) in an Extra Round. Tuterev knocked Mihalik down twice in the extra round and the fight was waved off.

Faldir Chahbari and Warren Stevelmans Pick Up Wins in Spain

warrenstevelmans

This past weekend, promotion Real Fighters held an event in Malaga, Spain and the show played host to some familiar kickboxing talent from Europe.

A -70kg tournament was the main showcase on the card, as 4 fighters battled it out for the 5000 Euro prize. In the first semi-final, Jonay Risco took on Mike's Gym fighter Rachid Belaini and took a decision in an extra round to advance to the finals. In the other semi-final, it was an all Spanish affair as Javier Maiz took on Fran Palenzuela. Palenzuela beat Maiz and advanced to the final, making it an two Spaniards in the final. Palenzuela took a decision over Risco to win the tournament. It was a quick turn-around for both men, as they both fought and lost to Naruepol and Yodsaenklai Fairtex respectively in China on June 18.

Two relatively high profile super fights also took place on the card. Faldir Chahbari took on late replacement Sergio Sanchez in a -72kg bout. It was a close fight but the experienced Chahbari was able to pull through and edge out a decision over 3 rounds. This win makes it four in a row for Chahbari, and maybe warrants a step up in competition for the Dutch-Moroccan.

Coming off his win over Yavuz Kayabasi for It's Showtime in Madrid on June 18, Zeben Diaz took on Warren Stevelmans. Diaz took the first round handily, dominating Stevelmans. Never one to quit, Stevelmans stormed back in the second round. The referee stopped the fight after the second round when Diaz appeared not able to continue after resting his arms on the ring ropes.  We don't know if it was questionable stoppage or not yet, hopefully a video comes out. Stevelmans now has two wins in a row, and this can make up for his loss to Rafi Zouheir in the finals of the K-1 MAX Madrid Tournament.

The biggest name in the tournament is clearly Freddy Kemayo, who is looking to get his career back on track after some poor performances over the past few years. Kemayo is a great fighter who can frustrate fans by not looking as sharp against higher level opponents and then decimating anyone else.

Prestige Fight 67kg: Fikri African (3R - Dec) Babak Rustamov
Prestige Fight 67kg: Chingiz Allazov (1R - KO) Guvac Akiyev

-77kg: Errol Koning vs. Murthel Groenhart:

-95kg: Marco Vlieger vs. Revanho Blokland:

Revanho Blokland wins by Unanimous Decision. Blokland outworked Vlieger the whole fight. Vlieger just didn't open up enough and went into a shell for large portions of the fight.

-73kg: Hafid el Boustati vs. Piotr Woznicki:

Hafid el Boustati wins by Unanimous Decision. Complete domination.

-95kg: Danyo Ilunga vs. Nenad Pagonis (It's Showtime 95MAX World Title Fight):

-70kg: Rafal Dudek vs. Michal Glogowski:

Rafal Dudek wins by Majority Decision (4-1) in an Extra Round. Great fight, Glogowski controlled round 1, Dudek got round 2. Round 3 was even and it went to an extra round where Dudek edged it out in the last minute.

Heavyweight: Daniel Ghita vs. Erhan Deniz:

Daniel Ghita wins by KO (Left Hook to the Body) in Round 2. The first round was surprisingly close as both men went back and forth. Ghita was given a count from what looked like an accidental headbutt so all of a sudden Ghita was actually down on the scorecards. By the second round, Deniz was worn down and Ghita came out and punished him to the body, dropping him with a left hook to the liver and a high kick while Deniz was on the way down that caused a huge cut.

Glory World Series Live Results

LiverKick.com brings you all of the coverage of the Glory World Series, LIVE from Moscow, Russia. We had some commentator issues early on, but things have seemingly been sorted out. We'll give you live results for each and every bout, leading up to the World Series finals between Gokhan Saki and Brice Guidon.

K-1: Igor Jurkovic (R2 - TKO) Pavel Zhuravlev - Igor worked Pavel over throughout the first round, dropping him with a nice combo. To start the second round he dropped Zhuravlev and broke his nose, the ringside doctor stopped it.

MMA: Denis Stojnic (R1 - Submission - Rear Naked Choke) Mladen Kujundžić - Denis Stojnic looks like a BEAST. His neck is about the size of Cro Cop's thighs. Stojnic put a serious beating on Mlanden and went for a few submission attempts before locking in the rear naked choke.

K-1: Errol Zimmerman (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Mourad Bouzidi - This is a grudge match of sorts as the two have met before and the finish was less than satisfactory. The first round was lots of action with Bouzidi fighting a bit more intelligently, but Zimmerman landed a few heavy shots before dropping Bouzii HARD with a hook that sent Bouzidi crashing to the ropes. The bell saved him. Bouzidi took a giant hook in the second round and fell flat on his face. The rest of the fight was all Zimmerman destroying Bouzidi.

MMA:  Rasul Mirzaev (R1 - Armbar) Roman Kishev - Rasul basically had Kishaev outclassed on the ground and was going for a ton of submissions before taking his back and rolling into an armbar for the tap.

K-1: Mark "Fightshark" Miller (R1 [0:03] - KO - Right Hook) Nikolaj Falin - I'm in awe of Mark Miller. This is history, Mark not only came back from open heart surgery but worked like a surgeon himself, using his head movement to avoid Falin's first few strikes and land an incredible overhand right to KO Falin.

MMA: Dion Staring (R1 - TKO) Roman Savochka - Dion Staring used his size and strength to make short work of Roman Savochka, using his ground and pound to finish him off.

K-1: Sergei Kharitonov (R1 - KO/Uppercut) Mighty Mo - Mighty Mo did his best against Kharitonov, but Kharitonov's hands were simply too fast and accurate, as were his clinch knees. Mo came in close and a right uppercut floored Mighty Mo.

K-1: Ali Cenik (R3 - Draw) Zabit Samedov - The first round was full of heated exchanges, Samedov came in very confident, but Ali Cenik was able to connect with a few giant shots and wobble Samedov. In the second round Ali Cenik landed some very big shots and was able to wobble Samedov. Samedov was laughing, but he is down possibly two rounds now. The third round was a very even round where things degenerated into a slug fest. The judges ruled the bout a draw.

MMA: Jason Jones (R3 - Counter Knee KO) Shamil Abdoulmouslimov - A slow, methodical ground fight for two and a half rounds. Tons of sweeps and position changes from both guys. Shamil went for a takedown in R3 and ate a knee to the head which immediately KO'd him.

K-1: Artur Kyshenko (R3 - Unanimous Dec.) Nieky Holzken - Great first round from both guys, Nieky pushed most of the pace, controlling the action. Holzken was able to use his reach to throw some nice jabs and kicks. Kyshenko found his range in the second round, absolutely dominating most of the round connecting with great combinations with his hands and throwing lots of kicks and knees. Holzken came back near the end of the round with a crazy left hook that rocked Kyshenko but didn't put him down. The third round was incredibly close, both guys fought very, very hard throwing everything at each other.

MMA Finals: Siyar Bahadurzada (R2 - TKO/knees and hammerfists) Tommy Depret - Has to be seen to be believed. Tommy Depret is a name a lot of people don't know, but he put forth an incredible fight against Siyar. Siyar is known to be a fast finisher and Depret gave him a lot of trouble on the ground, almost tapping him out a few times. Siyar was really hurting him in the second round but Depret would not give up. A few knees and some hammer fists by Siyar finally puts Depret away in the second. Great knock down drag out war.

K-1 Finals: Gokhan Saki (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Brice Guidon - Saki was having problems with Guidon's reach in the first round, with Guidon effectively keeping Saki at bay for most of the round. Saki was still landing a lot of great shots. Round 2 saw Saki annihilate Guidon with strikes, knocking him down with a huge hook. Saki does a great job in the third round pressing the action and landing clean shots on Guidon. Guidon starts just throwing any kick he can think of, but it was too little too late.

SuperKombat World Grand Prix I Results



Yesterday, in the shadow of It's Showtime, SuperKombat held a big event in Bucharest, Romania featuring names such as Albert Kraus and a heavyweight tournament featuring K-1 veterans Dzevad Poturak and Sergei Lascenko.

The heavyweight tournament started off with Roman Kleibl vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Kleibl took a decision in 3 rounds. In the second semi final, Sergei Lascenko stopped Dzevad Poturak with a knee to the body, setting up a final of Roman Kleibl vs. Sergei Lascenko. Lascenko went on to get the knockout agaisnt Kleibl in the second round, winning the tournament. Kleibl also advanced to the Final Eliminations, which are a bit unclear as to what they are right now but it looks like SuperKombat will be holding more events similar to this and the winners of the heavyweight tournaments will all meet in a final grand prix tournament. It's a big win for Lascenko, as he's been rather inconsistent and not in the best shape in past fights. You have to think the switch to Mike's Gym played a role in the turn around.

K-1 star Albert Kraus returned to action after a loss last month, taking on Romanian Marius Tita. Kraus went to work early, bombarding Tita with punches mixed in with low kicks until a high kick sealed the deal, knocking Tita out cold. It's a good win for Kraus as he was able to get back on track with a win. Nice to see him throwing some more kicks as well.

Others in action picking up wins were Rico Verhoeven and Sebastien Ciobanu. Upcoming Romanian star Bogdan Stoica forced his opponent's corner to stop the fight in the 3rd round of their Wako-Pro -88.68 kg Intercontinental Title Match. Romanian-Nigerian Benjamin Adegbuyi stopped his Czech opponent Libor Polach in the 1st round.

Overall, a good event from SuperKombat. Looks like they have some big things in the works. Check out the video of Albert Kraus' fight above and be on the lookout for more videos from the event over the week.

Main Card

Giga Chikadze (R3 - Unanimous Dec.) Evgeniy Kurovskoy - Giga pretty much dominated this fight, Evgeniy got dropped by a beautiful right hook in the first round, and got tagged with a big knee in the second. The third he rallied a bit, but simply could not come back.

Frank Pareces Vilches (R3 - Unanimous Dec.) Robert van Nimwegen - I missed literally the entire fight to buffering.

Hafid el Boustati (R3 - Dec.) Mohammed Medhar - From what I saw, el Boustati was picking Medhar apart.

Sahak Parparyan (It's Showtime 85MAX World Title Fight) (R5 - Dec.) Amir Zeyada - Crazy fight, back and forth with really great combinations from both men. It was very hard to pick a winner in this fight, Zeyada was a lot bigger and stronger, but Parparyan stayed calm and weathered every storm and had more clean connections.

Mohammed Khamal (R3 - Dec.) Robin van Roosmalen - Wow. Watch this fight. This is what stand up battles should look like, both guys were going tooth and nail for all three rounds, made you wish it were a 5 round bout.

Hesdy Gerges (R2 - KO) Chris Knowles - Knowles had some heart, took a lot of shots in the first round, but in the second round couldn't handle Gerges's power. Right hook, right uppercut, left knee to the face and a hook to finish it and Knowles was DOWN for a solid 20 seconds.
