Merseburger Fight Night: Ilunga Wins Tournament, Drago Snaps Losing Streak

Aside from K-1's event yesterday in Los Angeles, there was some other notable kickboxing action in Merseburg, Germany at Merseburger Fight Night. Danyo Ilunga was among names featured in a one night, eight man heavyweight tournament and Gago Drago also returned to the ring to try and snap his eight fight losing streak.

Ilunga ended up winnin the heavyweight tournament but he only ended up having to fight twice. He defeated Wendell Roche in a rematch of their It's Showtime title fight back in December of 2010 by unanimous decision in the quarter finals. The other quarter final match-ups consisted of Slavo Polugic defeating Utley Meriana by unanimous decision, Senad Hadzic defeating Martin Jahn by corner stoppage in the second round and Uguz Ovgur took a decision over Vladimir Toktasynov.

In the first semi-final, Slavo Polugic pushed Senad Hadzic to the ground and soccer kicked him not once, but twice, resulting in a brawl in the ring between both camps. Both fighters were disqualified. Uguz Ovgur was injured so with Polugic and Hadzic disqualified, Ilunga ended up fighting Sergio Pique, who won his reserve bout over Jerry Otto via KO from a high kick, in the final.  Ilunga ended up overwhelming Pique in the first round, winning by TKO.

Gago Drago faced Baker Barakat and after a competitive first three rounds, the fight went to an extra round. In the extra round, Drago pressured Barakat a bit more to secure the win and snap his eight fight losing streak.

Max Baumert of Golden Glory Berlin met the grizzled veteran, Marco Pique and took a unanimous decision in a close fight.

Sergio Pique def. Jerry Otto by KO (High Kick) in Round 2.

Muay Thai Mania V: Aussie Defeats Nieky Holzken Again

Muay Thai Mania V went down yesterday in The Hague, Netherlands and the card was headlined by a rematch that was a long time in the making between L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni and Nieky Holzken.

In their first fight, Aussie quickly won in the first round with a flying knee back in 2010 at It's Showtime. Holzken had wanted this rematch for a long time, saying that he wasn't his best for the first fight. Well yesterday, Aussie won again, but this time by decision. It wasn't just a regular decision though, as the fight had to go to an extra round.

There were some other intriguing match-ups on the card, including the man who recently upset Robin van Roosmalen, Hafid el Boustati, who took on Shemsi Beqiri's brother, Hysni Beqiri. In another fight that had to go to an extra round, Hafid el Boustati won a decision.

Albert Kraus made his pro boxing debut and it was a success. His opponent from Romania, Valentin Cimpoero, could not continue after the third round so Kraus won by TKO. K-1 and SuperLeague veteran Aalviar Lima showed he still has some gas left in the tank as he stopped the Remy Bonjasky-trained Darryl Sichtman with a body shot. In other action, Fred Sikking defeated Hakan Aksoy by decision and Jason Wilnis defeated Louis Tavares, although the decision seems to have been hotly disputed. Thanks to FightStarTV for results.

25 A-Class Abdullaev (Team Super Pro) WOP vs Vahap Ozdemir (Dragon Gym)
26 A-Class Remon Bonte (Team Pasztjerik) vs Ismael Lazaar (Budokai Tilburg) WOP

Thai Fight England Results: Buakaw Returns With KO Win

Thai Fight held a show in Leicester, England today and featured a who's who of international Muay Thai fighters, from Thailand, France and England. Garnering the most attention was Buakaw of course, who returned to the ring for the first time since his legal debacle.

Buakaw faced Abdoul Toure, a French fighter who had a significant height advantage. Buakaw took the first round very slowly and allowed Toure to get some shots in, mostly knees to the body from the clinch but it was evident that all Buakaw had to do was turn it up a notch. He did just that in the second round where he dropped Toure with a vicious kick to the body, with Toure getting up but the fight being waved off by the referee. What was really impressive about the kick was that it wasn't even to the side that the liver was on, showcasing just how powerful it was.

Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee, who always tries to put on a show did just that against Issam Reghi as he dominated the fight while playing around at the same time. Sudsakorn dropped Reghi in the third with an elbow to really seal the deal.

Also on the card was another international Muay Thai star, Saiyok Pumphanmuang who faced Craig Jose of England. Jose was game but Saiyok, who came out very aggressive with vicious kick counters, clearly had the edge. Jose showcased how tough he is by hanging in there the whole fight, but ultimately Saiyok won a decision.

In one of the closer fights, Houcine Bennoui surprised many by fighting well against Singmanee Kaewsamrit. Bennoui didn't fight at all this year until June and it seems to have done him well. Singmanee was able to land the cleaner knees and body kicks, along with controlling parts of the fight with his teep and that's what got him the victory. Bennoui landed more with punches and low kicks, and even dumped Singmanee a few times. Another close fight was between Dylan Salvador of France and Soloman Wickstead of England, who replaced Liam Harrison on very short notice. It was close, but I thought Wickstead was the sharper of the two. Salvador ended up getting the decision.

Armin Pumphanmuang scored a highlight reel finish over Abdallah Mabel, rocking him with a high kick and then charging in with downward elbows while Mabel was against the ropes, forcing the referee to stop the fight.

Two fights also went untelevised. Jordan Watson of England beat Hamed Hassan of France by decision and by all accounts dominated the fight, dropping Hassan once. Crice Boussoukou of France defeated England's Michael Dicks by decision after dropping Dicks in the third round. Full results below:

67kg: Crice Boussoukou def. Michael Dicks by decision

70kg: Jordan Watson def. Hamed Hassan by decision.

70kg: Armin Pumphanmuang def. Abdallah Mabel by KO (High Kick and Elbows) in Round 2

It's Showtime 59 in Tenerife Live Results

It's Showtime

It's Showtime 59 is live from Tenerife, Spain in just a few moments here with a stacked card featuring fighters like Andy Souwer, Sergei Laschenko, Andy Ristie, Javier Hernandez and more. The event can be purchased from showtimefights.com for just 10 euros (about $12.50 USD). I will be live tweeting results at @liverkickdotcom as well.

Andy Ristie (R1 - KO) David Calvo - A brutal knee by Ristie that came up the middle put Calvo down very early in the first round and he was unable to answer the count. Props to Calvo for stepping in on late notice, but wow.

Amir Zeyada (Decision) Moises Ruibal - I have no clue what happened in this fight. Major technical difficulties.

Sergei Laschenko (R1 - KO) Danny Garcia

They now bring out Moises Ruibal and announce that the judges score cards were not rendered correctly, and that he is the rightful winner of the bout with Amir Zeyada.

Murthel Groenhert (R2 - Cut Stoppage) Maximo Suarez - Murthel looked a bit rough in R1, but was able to pull it together for the second round and open a nasty cut on Suarez for the finish.

61kg Championship: Masahiro Yamamoto (R5 - Decision) Sergio Hernandez - Masahiro Yamamoto was completely on point throughout the fight. His knees were doing a lot of damage and keeping Hernandez off balance while his hands did a bulk of the work.

Andy Souwer (R3 - Decision) Zeben Diaz - Diaz put up a really great fight, almost a dead even fight with Souwer, but the third round was truly a deciding factor for both men. Souwer rocked Diaz with a right hand which more or less sealed the fate of the bout. Diaz is really a legitimately good fighter.

Johann Fauveau Defeats Jordan Watson, Yetkin Ozkul Defeats Thomas Adamandopoulos In France

Today in Marseille, France, a big kickboxing event went down at Le Dome de Marseille, which holds 8 500 people and from all indications, it was a full house. Originally, Andy Souwer was scheduled to fight Johann Fauveau but Souwer pulled out due to K-1's return. As a result, Jordan Watson stepped in for Souwer, leaving Fauveau with a very formidable opponent still.

In the main event, two of the top kickboxers in the world around the weight of 61kg met for the ISKA World Title at -62.3kg under K-1 rules, as Yetkin Ozkul fought the hometown former champion, Thomas Adamandopoulos. Although Adamandopoulos lost this title to Karim Bennoui back in November via split decision, Bennoui must've had the title stripped or vacated it himself. Yetkin Ozkul has been on a roll lately, and he continued that today, surprisingly stopping Adamandopoulos in the fourth round via TKO. Adamandopoulos had only been stopped once previously years ago but Ozkul has really heavy hands that have lead to two first round knockouts of Ilias El Hajoui. This win should cement Ozkul in the minds of many as one of the top kickboxers around 61kg, and I'd like to see him fight Karim Bennoui.

Another ISKA K-1 rules world title was on the line at 70kg, as the aforementioned match-up of Jordan Watson and Johann Fauveau took place. I highlighted both of these fighters in my post yesterday as two who should definitely be in one of the big kickboxing tournaments for K-1 or Glory. Fauveau won a decision in what sounds like a great fight. Watson's team, Bad Company Gym, said that he won the first three rounds but got tired after, also saying that Fauveau was really tough. This win should definitely open some eyes of the higher-ups in the kickboxing game and hopefully we can see him, and even Watson on the big shows.

A few up and comers of the kickboxing scene fought as well. Bruce Codron, who has made the move over from full contact much like Andrew Tate, defeated Nizar Gallas in a 70kg fight by decision in a rematch of their fight in February, which he also won by decision. At 86kg, Halim Chibani defeated Nicolas Atmani by decision. Full results below:

Yetkin Ozkul def. Thomas Adamandopoulos by TKO in Round 4. (ISKA World Title -62.3kg K-1 Rules)

Johann Fauveau def. Jordan Watson by decision. (ISKA World Title -70kg K-1 Rules)

HW: Nordine Mohiedine def. Noel Cadet by KO in Round 1.

Amel Dehby def. Bernise Alldiss (Women's ISKA World Title -60kg)

-70kg: Bruce Codron def. Nizar Gallas by decision.

-86kg: Halim Chibani def. Nicolas Atmani by decision.
