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.

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.

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.

Fight Code Istanbul Results

Fight CodeFight Code held yet another event in their line of tournaments, this time focusing on the Heavyweights, Fight Code's "Rhinos" division. 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
