Videos: Glory 19 Mike Tyson Interviews With Verhoeven and Zimmerman

"Iron" Mike Tyson's interviews with the Glory heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven and the challenger Errol Zimmerman have now been released and the full episode will be aired Friday evening on Spike TV.

I always find it makes the best interviews when a fighter is asking the questions. So you can just imagine when you have a legend like Mike Tyson giving his stories leading into each question. It really brings out both Verhoeven's and Zimmerman's personality and confidence and of course they want to impress Iron Mike, I mean who wouldn't?

Both interviews are very interesting and enjoyable, Mike really knows how to build a fighters confidence and bring it out by asking the right things. I have never seen Rico so animated, and excited and Zimmerman even mentions that hes got so much energy from the interview that he wants to go out and punch Verhoeven right now. Lets hope both fighters come into this fight with the same feelings as these videos then we will be in for a treat.

Inside Glory 19: Rico Verhoeven Vs Errol Zimmerman

This video actually got me really excited for Glory 19 on Feb 6th. First of all both Errol Zimmerman and Rico Verhoeven look as though they are training very hard and are hungry for the Glory belt. Secondly, rubber matches are the best. Both men already know each other, they have beat each other once and now we find out who can adapt and overcome to win the 3rd fight. Last but not least, Mike Tyson is going to be watching which might sound like it doesn't make sense, or like its not a big deal to many people but you can tell by both these heavyweights excitement just to talk to Iron Mike how much it means to them, every fighter wants to win with Mike Tyson ringside.

Pakorn Talks About Liam Harrison Fight at Yokkao 13

On Saturday, March 21st Yokkao 13 goes down in the UK where Pakorn will meet Liam Harrison in one of this year's most anticipated bouts thus far. Yokkao promoter Stefania Picelli caught up with Pakorn to talk about the upcoming fight as well as training with Saenchai for the fight. Saenchai, of course, famously fought Harrison before, so it seems like the perfect training partner for Pakorn to prepare for the big world title fight against Harrison at Yokkao 13.

Muay Thai Legend Jomhod Kiatadisak Set to Compete in MMA at Full Metal Dojo 4

Jomhod Kiatadisak is a former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern champion and after making a name for himself at the stadiums in Bangkok he moved to Finland and became one of the biggest names on the Muay Thai and kickboxing scene in Europe.

Jomhod was last seen coming out of retirement to face former Olympic gold medalist Somluck Khamsing in two high stakes matches that attracted a lot of attention in the Thai media but the next challenge for the 44 year old will be making his pro MMA debut.

Jomhod will be competing on the card at Full Metal Dojo 4: ‘Once Upon a Time in Bangkok’ at Live House Studios on February 21st and has been training at Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket in preparation for this late foray into MMA .

Originally from Phang Nga, Jomhod has been a trainer in Phuket for the past nine years and still fights occasionally at the stadiums there. He is rapidly approaching the age of retirement but reportedly wants to become an MMA trainer and is looking to get a couple of fights under his belt first.

Although he has only fought sporadically in the last few years Jomhod is always in excellent shape and is known for his diverse striking arsenal, mixing up spinning back kicks with the more traditional Muay Thai strikes.

His two matches with Somluck were both big successes at the box office and Full Metal Dojo, which was founded last year and has already put on cards in both Phuket and Bangkok, will be hoping that the presence of a Muay Thai legend on next month’s show will help bring in the punters.

Video: Nieky Holzken Pre-Fight Interview for Glory 19

Glory 19 in Hampton, Virginia will include a 4 man Welterweight tournament where we will finally get to see the return of Nieky "The Natural" Holzken. Holzken believes he is already the champion considering he knocked out current champion Joseph Valtellini and has expressed the fact that he is surprised he still has to go through a tournament to fight for the belt again.

He was on the sidelines last year and couldn't compete in Glory due to a shoulder injury caused partly by his fight with Karapet Karapetyan and partly by a car accident. According to him Nieky's shoulder is not causing him pain anymore and he is prepared to win this tournament.

Nieky Holzken is the favourite in this tournament by far, he also has easily the best hair.

GLORY Renews Two Key Television Deals in Europe

GLORY announced earlier today that they have renewed two of their key television contracts in Europe. While GLORY puts a lot of promotional effort into the United States, Europe is still one of their main focuses and will continue to be moving forward. The first deal was with French-based Kombat Sport and the second the Croatian-based Fight Channel.

Both of these networks give them key coverage throughout many parts of Europe and will be a home to their GLORY SuperFight Series cards as well.

"Europe is a very important market for us, where some of our most loyal and hungry fan-bases exist," said Jon Franklin, CEO of GLORY. "This partnership with Kombat Sport and Fight Channel will satisfy that desire for world class kickboxing through an exciting time in company history. GLORY 19 is one of our strongest cards ever from top-to-bottom and then we keeping rolling in April with GLORY 20. We can't wait to show viewers around the world what GLORY looks like in the new year."

Fight Card For K-1's China vs. Japan Feb. 1st Event

K-1 is continuing to go full speed ahead with their Chinese home base with their second event of the year in Changsua, China. This time around the theme is China vs. Japan and will feature some of their Chinese standouts against a few Japanese fighters. Sadly a lot of the talent they wanted were already booked due to New Year's and early January events, but they still pulled together a pretty good card.

I assume there will be a free stream via Hunan TV like the last time as well. Stay tuned for that. Also Jungle Koki is the coolest name ever.

60kg Tomohiro Kiyai vs. Wu Ze
63kg Keisuke Nakamura vs. Wang Zhiwei
65kg Kuji Yoshimoto vs. Hanji
70kg Hideaki Kikkawa vs. Tien Xin
70kg K-Jee vs. Zang Lei
70kg Jungle Koki vs. Ba Te Er
53kg Syuri vs. E Meidie

Four More Superfights added to Glory 19

Glory Sports International have added four more superfights to the card this week. It seems they are bringing in quite a few new American fighters to test out the talent and hope for another American star to emerge.

Brian Collette will be back in action for the first time since getting knocked out by Zack Mwekassa in Oklahoma, last year. He will be facing Myron Dennis who won the Legacy Fighting Championship light heavyweight title last year against Paul Buentello and has an MMA record of 11-4. Dennis took part in the very first "Road to Glory" scouting event but lost his first fight, he also lost to Randy Blake in 2011.

Francois Ambang is also back after his crazy KO loss to Raymond Daniels. He will face Stephen Richards who has fought on Lion Fights before and is usually more of a Muay Thai practitioner but this time will make his Glory Debut.

Superfights

Andy Ristie vs. Steve Moxon

Josh Jauncey vs. Max Baumert

Brian Collette vs. Myron Dennis

Francois Ambang vs. Stephen Richards

Xavier Vigney vs. Everett Sims

Mitch ***** vs. Cedric *****
