Dzhabar Askerov Wins For Third Time In Less Than A Month At Tatneft

The Tatneft Cup's final event of the 1/8 qualification stage took place in Kazan, Russia today. The participants were vying for the final spots left in the next round of the Tatneft Cup, the quarter finals. Some good fighters have advanced so far and that continued at today's event.

Most notably, at 70kg, Dzhabar Askerov knocked out Antoine Mandela in the second round to advance to the next stage. This was Askerov's third win in less than a month's time, an extremely tough task. He defeated Jeremy Sportouch on March 8, Maxim Vorovsky on the 23rd and now today's victory. Askerov has won the Tatneft Cup at 70kg for the past two years and is the favorite to three-peat.

Liverkick.com's #3 ranked light heavyweight, Hicham El Gaoui returned to the ring and took on Konstantin Gorokhov, a replacement for Dario Kadic. El Gaoui scored a rare stoppage win for himself, as Gorokhov did not come out for the third round. Also at 80kg, Amir El Mansouri defeated Parinya from Thailand by decision in an extra round.

At heavyweight, Martynas Knyzelis defeated late replacement Alexander Volobuev. In the second heavyweight fight, Saulo Cavalari, who qualified by winning the Tatneft Cup South America, knocked out Andrey Shmakov.

In another 70kg fight, Maxim Smirnov defeated Ravy Brunow in an extra round. Brunow also qualified by winning the Tatneft Cup South America.

Giorgio Petrosyan Masterfully Outclasses Artur Kyshenko

The first Fight Code event of the year just ended, and Giorgio Petrosyan beat Artur Kyshenko by unanimous decision.

They met in the main event of the event, Petrosyan being the number one fighter in all of kickboxing and Kyshenko a top five fighter in the 70kg division. Many thought this might be Giorgio's toughest test yet, as Kyshenko is a huge fighter for the 70kg weight class, often taking fights far above the weight limit. Kyshenko has been top 5 for some time now. He was one of the few top fighters that Giorgio had never faced.

Petrosyan simply outclassed Kyshenko, putting on a masterful performance. It was vintage Giorgio Petrosyan, living up to his moniker of "The Doctor." Giorgio's counter punches threw Kyshenko off for the whole fight, leaving the Ukrainian fighter based out of Mike's Gym clearly rattled at points. Even when the fight turned into clinch grappling, Giorgio still got the better of Kyshenko, who was much bigger and stronger and can bully opponents.

Easily the best part of Giorgio's performance was his movement. He had Kyshenko looking clueless at times, taking angles, moving in and out. Giorgio would out-manuevre Kyshenko to such a great extent a few times that he basically had Artur's back. He would move in, throw the straight left and move right back out before Kyshenko could even get a punch off, missing by miles at times.

I've seen a lot of people say that they're "not impressed" by Giorgio's performance or thought he "didn't look good." I think that's crazy. Giorgio Petrosyan just completely shut down a top 5 fighter in the world and made him look lost for a large portion of the fight. It was truly a masterful display of technical skills to completely stifle Artur Kyshenko.

La Nuit Des Titans: Pinca vs. Aikpracha Live Results

La Nuit Des Titans is happening in Tours, France today and we've got live results for you. 

Originally scheduled was Buakaw vs. Fabio Pinca but with the recent situation of Buakaw, current Lumpinee Stadium welterweight champion Aikpracha Meenayothin stepped in and presents an even tougher challenge for Fabio Pinca, one of the top non Thai nak muays. Also on the card is Buakaw's former (at least for the time being) stablemate, Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk who takes on French up and comer Ayoub El Khaidar. Last but not least, a four man tournament at 72.5kg featuring Fabio Pinca teammate Mickael Piscitello, Fares Bechar, Bird Kham and Super X.

If you want to watch live, you can order the online PPV from live.muaythaitv.com. Prices and how to watch are listed, with the price being $12.90 USD. It's already started but the main, professional fights haven't yet so be quick to join us watching.

Semi-Final #1: Mickael Piscitello def. Bird Kham by unanimous decision.

Good fight, although it was pretty dirty and had a lot of bad refereeing. Bird Kham had two points deducted during the fight, one for low blows which I don't think should've been taken away and one for a soccer kick while Piscitello was grounded. Piscitello dropped Bird Kham in the second round with an uppercut.

Semi-Final #2: Super X def. Fares Bechar by unanimous decision.

Super X started out dominating, then Bechar came back and turned it into a firefight. Bechar was dropped hard by a straight left as the firefight ensued in the first round. The second round was closer and Bechar was able to land some clean, hard punches when he pushed the fight but he didn't push it enough. Super X controlled the third to take a clear decision.

60kg: Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk def. Ayoub El Khaidar by decision.

Very good, close fight. It could've gone either way. El Khaidar is a fighter to look for in the future, he's young and he just did better against Pajonsuk than Karim Bennoui did. Surprised Pajonsuk got the decision in El Khaidar's home.

Final: Super X def. Mickael Piscitello by KO in Round 1.

Started competitive but Super X caught Piscitello with a short, inside punch then followed up with a few elbows and a knee to the body that had Piscitello out.

-68kg: Aikpracha Meenayothin def. Fabio Pinca by decision.

Good fight, Aikpracha was in control for all of it. Pinca landed some clean punches that didn't have much effect. Aikpracha landed more and was a lot more effective. Too bad they had to wear elbow pads.

Mirko Cro Cop Defeats Ray Sefo In Return To Kickboxing

In front of around 20 000 fans at the Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia today, Mirko Cro Cop took on Ray Sefo at the event hailed "Cro Cop Final Fight."

This was Cro Cop's first fight in Croatia since the year 2000 when he stopped Stuart Green. Despite being in K-1 at the same time period, they had never fought before. Both men are well past their prime and up their in age but it didn't stop the hype and anticipation of the fight from happening.

Both of them looked their age in the ring, not moving very well. They both landed some clean punches to the head but Cro Cop started to pull ahead in the second round. The fight started to become a clinchfest wih Cro Cop getting the better of it, landed uppercuts inside.

Cro Cop took the second and third on my scorecard and the judges must've seen it similarly, as he picked up the decision victory. Despite the moniker of "Final Fight," this was not Mirko's final fight and he's said himself he will continue kickboxing, even saying that he would like to fight in the K-1 World Grand Prix one last time.

Starting off with 70kg, the first fight pitted Sergey Kulyaba of Ukraine against Alexei Dodonov of Russia. Kulyaba took a decision in an extra fourth round. Amadou Ba of France took on Namkabuan Lek of Thailand. Namkabuan Lek also won a decision over four rounds.

At 80kg, The Polish-Belarussian fighter Stanislaw Zaniewski was up against Miran Fabjan of Slovenia. The fight went to an extra round where Zaniewski knocked Fabjan down to take the fight.

At heavyweight, Tomsz Sarara met Zentai Mate. Sarara won by knockout and advanced to the next stage. In an upset, last year's Tatneft Cup champion, Hicham Achalhi, was beaten by Yassin Bouanan.

Thai Boxe Mania Results: Kyshenko Wins, Bessmertny KOs Drago With Head Kick

Thai Boxe Mania held its annual event in Turin, Italy yesterday and some notable fighters fought, including Artur Kyshenko. Kyshenko will be fighting Giorgio Petrosyan on March 24 in Milan, so this was a good introduction to the Italian crowd before that fight.

Artur Kyshenko fought Roberto Cocco at 75kg and took home a dominant decision win. Cocco came out guns blazing but it didn't phase Kyshenko at all. Kyshenko took over for the rest of the fight after about the first minute. Dropping Cocco with a spinning backfist in the second, he followed up by swarming Cocco with heavy punches to force a standing count. Kyshenko seemed a bit wild but his shots were really heavy and Cocco had no answer. It was a good warm up for the fight against Giorgio Petrosyan.

Winner of Fight Code's 2011 72.5kg tournament, Yury Bessmertny fought the popular K-1 star Gago Drago. Drago had lost six in a row prior to this fight and it was pretty much the same as his last six fights for him. Bessmertny stifled most of Drago's attempts at offense by moving around the ring and striking. Drago had nothing effective going for him. In the third Bessmertny hit Drago with a head kick that ended his night, sending him faceplanting straight to the canvas.

One of the best prospects in all of kickfighting, Chingiz Allazov dominated the tough veteran Erkan Varol to win a decision. Varol had nothing for Allazov, who kept the fight to his liking with his height and measure of distance. Allazov battered Varol with low kicks and body punches for the whole fight. I think it's time for a big step up in competition for Allazov. This was a step up in competition for him, but it's apparent that he's just on another level.

Full results below:

-75kg: Artur Kyshenko def. Roberto Cocco by decision.

-72.5kg: Yury Bessmertny def. Gago Drago by KO (Head Kick) in Round 3

-67kg: Chingiz Allazov def. Erkan Varol by decision.
