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.

Video: Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller's latest boxing fight

Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller extended his Boxing win streak to 11-0 this weekend with a victory over the granite chinned Aaron Kinch. I couldn't help but think of brain damage when I watched this fight, it was 6 rounds of Miller just landing clean punches while Kinch was able to stay on his feet and survive I have no idea how. Miller weighed in at a heavy 281 lbs for this fight which could mean two things, either his strength and conditioning training is going perfectly, or he had a really good Christmas and New Years. No matter what even at 281 lbs this was a dominant victory for Big Baby that I feel could have been stopped at a few points during the fight, hope to see him back in the kickboxing ring soon.

Videos: Kunlun Fights #15

Well, we had some very interesting results this weekend in China at Kunlun #15, that really mess with the kickboxing rankings. Glory's heavyweight champ and #1 ranked Rico Verhoeven lost a decision after getting two 8 counts in the 2nd round at the hands of Andrei Herasimchuk. So where does this put Herasimchuk in the ranks? is he #1 now? Rico never really got into a groove during the fight and the same can be said about Murthel Groenhart. He seemed to have nothing to offer his opponent Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, which led to the Thai fighter landing a perfect left head kick and ending the fight. Now without a doubt Sittichai deserves to be in the top 10 of the kickboxing rankings after beating Andy Souwer and Groenhart in one night.

Video: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Dmytro konstantynov Top King Dec 20/2014

TopKing World Series had their Final 8 tournament last night. Not sure what the plan was but they only broadcast 1 hour of the event which included Pornsanae getting Ko'd within 5 seconds, Buakaw Banachamek dismantling Dmytro Konstantynov, and Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym as a the main event. I was a little disappointed that I woke up at 5:50am to only watch the last 3 fights when I was looking forward to seeing other names like Nicolas Larsen, Marat Grigorian, and Reece McAllister.

Anyway here is Buakaw's fight, once again he looks very scary under Muay Thai rules, I really noticed his right elbow counter especially to the left hook to the body, it was so quick that it almost seemed not worth throwing the liver punch anymore. I wonder who his next tournament fight will be, I'm hoping it's Grigorian.

Video: Robert Thomas vs. Mike Lemaire Glory 18

Glory released another superfight this one is between Canada's Robert "White Dragon" Thomas and USA's Mike Lemaire. Thomas has more of a traditional Muay Thai style but we were told he had been working his hands a lot recently. It took him 2 rounds to finally let his hands go, but once he did in the 3rd Lemaire was in big trouble in what was a close fight up until then. I hope to see Thomas get more confidence in his hands after this KO victory.

Video: Hesdy Gerges vs. Benjamin Adegbuyi from Glory 18

Glory has finally released probably the most anticipated superfight from Glory 18 in Oklahoma. We have the talented, young, rising star in Benjamin Adegbuyi against the experienced veteran that is Hesdy Gerges. 

First of all, the pace in this fight for two huge men was incredible. Watching this fight I remember thinking "This is only round 1!?!" Both men were throwing from bell to bell all 3 rounds in what ended as a very close fight. The fight really could have gone either way but I think what may have swayed the judges was the more flashy stuff from Benny. Glory does state during their rules meeting that flashy kicks like back kicks, high kicks, and flying knees will score higher with the judges. Hesdy was quite unhappy with the decision to say the least.

Anyway judge it for yourself tell us what you think.
