Video: Israel Adesanya vs. Kim Loudon

Luckily the Knees of Fury promotion has most of their fights on to Youtube shortly after the event so we were able to watch Adesanya's last fight. Now I personally have not seen a full fight (only clips) of his since he fought Verlinden at Glory 15. I know he's been doing some professional Boxing with the Super 8 tournaments and feel it showed in this fight, his boxing and head movement looked amazing, but I felt he was actually looking too much like a boxer at some points. I'd like to see him back in Kickboxing or Muay Thai fights more often just to get that kicking groove back. Otherwise he demolished Kim Loudon and stopped him in the 3rd with some nasty looking elbows that looked as though they could have been stopped sooner. Israel standing in the middle of the ring instead of going to his corner between the 1st and 2nd round made me laugh pretty hard.

Check Out LiverKick's Post Fight Interviews with Verhoeven, Ristie, Jauncey, Holzken and More

(C) Glory Sports International

On Friday night GLORY 19 went down, where we saw Nieky Holzken run the gauntlet and walk away as the number one contender for the GLORY Welterweight Championship and Rico Verhoeven retained his GLORY Heavyweight Championship after Errol Zimmerman went down to a knee injury in the second round. It was one of the more exciting kickboxing events that we've had recently and will stick in people's memories for a while, that's for sure.

Our bud Carlo was there with his camera and he caught up with some of the fighters post-fight to get their thoughts.

LiverKick Interviews GLORY 19 SuperFight Series Stars Jauncey, Baumert, Collette and More

(C) Glory Sports International

The undercard for GLORY 19, the GLORY SuperFight Series, is jam-packed with talent. I mean it. Andy Ristie is fighting Steve Moxon, Josh Jauncey is fighting Max Baumert and we've got Collette, Ambang, Vigney and more. The news came out that CBS Sports Net will be airing the SuperFight Series on a one week delay, which means those of us in the US will get a chance to see it next week, but until then we're just gonna be jonesing because this is a tremendous lineup.

Our bud Carlo caught up with a few of the stars from this show's SuperFight Series (even a non-booked Filip Verlinden, who seems to have something on his mind) and we let them sound off.

LiverKick Interviews GLORY 19's Robert Thomas and Joe Schilling

(C) Glory Sports International

GLORY 19 will feature a huge bout between GLORY 10 Middleweight tournament champion Joe Schilling taking on the young Canadian upstart Robert Thomas. This is Thomas's third bout with GLORY, after making his debut against Artem Levin at GLORY 16. He rebounded with a win over Mike LeMaire, but the step up to Joe Schilling from LeMaire is a steep one. 

Our friend Carlo is on the ground at GLORY 19 and caught up with both Thomas and Schilling today to get their thoughts on the upcoming fight.

Video: Simon Marcus gets Annihilated by China's Fang Bian

Canada's Simon Marcus fought in China on the WKF world championship card on Jan 31 against China's Fang Bian and lets say that Marcus did not have a good day. It seems as though Joe Schilling exposed a weakness in Simon's boxing defense, mainly due to the way he pressures forwards so hard with his hands down. This fight shows us that Simon has still not changed the mistakes that got him KO'd before, but there is no denying how tough he is still getting up after being knocked down at least 4 times. Of course Fang Bian is super happy and celebrates by flinging himself on the ground and flailing, while Marcus is upset but does little push ups... slightly awkward situations at the end.

Video: Artem Levin Training at The Boxing Club, San Diego

Since winning the Glory middleweight title Artem Levin has been spending a lot more time in America. He seems to have found himself a comfortable place at "The Boxing Club" in San Diego, California to train and coach.

Here is a really cool video of Artem training on the bag and pads, it really shows you how athletic he is with his diverse strikes that are all being thrown with wicked speed and power.

Video: Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Erkan Varol

Giorgio "The Doctor" Petrosyan had his first fight back after losing to Andy Ristie in November 2013. Watching this fight it sure doesn't look like the time off did "The Doctor" any harm. He looked as sharp and slick as ever but I couldn't help but notice him going back to his old self and kicking a lot more than punching. He seems to have a serious problem with breaking his hands and when you make your living punching people in face that becomes an issue. Nonetheless, this fight against Erkan Varol didn't seem to cause him any problems at all and he looked untouchable, but then again Petroysan is on a much higher level.

Steven Wright's 2014 Year in Kickfighting Highlight

The year 2014 was a pretty strange one for kickboxing. There were some great things that happened and there was a lot of downtime and doom and gloom hanging over the sport as a whole. This year feels a lot different, a lot better thus far. Things are looking up. We have schedules from both K-1 and GLORY, we have promise popping up in China and the sport seems to be correcting itself and its trajectory. I spoke about all of this with Patrick Wyman on Steven Wright's podcast last week, where we delved into the year that was and the year that will be. It's interesting to hear us start geeking out about all of the things that are happening in China as well as all of the good from 2014. Check it out here.

Steven also put together a really awesome highlight video from last year showcasing some of the best fights that went down and the most memorable moments.
