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.

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

Tatneft Cup 2012 1st Stage 2nd Selection Results

Fighters took to the ring at the Tatneft Arena in Kazan, Russia for the second selection of the first stage of the 2012 Tatneft Cup. Winners will move on and join the winners from the first selection that took place on December 17, at the second stage (quarter finals). In total four selection events will be held in the first stage.

A few changes were made to the card, as the two Portuguese fighters, Bruno Carvalho and Luis Morais were unable to acquire a visa. Valeriy Podoyakhin was substituted in for Bruno Carvalho to face Enriko Gogokhia at -70kg and Oleg Zablodskiy stepped in for Luis Morais to face Dmitry Bezus at Heavyweight. Neither had any success though, as Gogokhia knocked out Podoyakhin in the third round and Bezus stopped Zablodskiy in the first. Gogokhia and Bezus are veterans of the Tatneft Cup, with Bezus losing in the final last year to Hicham Achalhi.

Two Japanese fighters, Masakazu Watanabe and Tsutomu Takahagi made the long trip to Kazan but were both unsuccesful. Watanabe, the Krush veteran, dropped a unanimous decision to Edvin Erik Kibus of Estonia at -70kg. Takahagi, competing at heavyweight, was knocked out in the second round by Tsotne Rogava, a fighter from Ukraine who is only 18 years old and has already fought the likes of Ismael Londt and Stefan Leko. 

In the -80kg division, possibly the best division in the Tatneft Cup, Vitaly Nikiforov  of Ukraine took a unanimous decision over Rain Karkinen of Estonia. Nikiforov's win put Ukraine at 3-0 for the event. One time It's Showtime fighter Errol Koning of Holland defeated Omar Amrani of Germany when Amrani gave up in the fourth round.

Be on the lookout for more Tatneft Cup content, as we have an interview with the organizers coming up shortly. Quick results below.

70kg: Enriko Gogokhia def. Valeriy Podoyakhin by KO in Round 3.

70kg: Edvin-Erik Kibus def. Masakazu Watanabe by unanimous decision.

Yokkao Extreme Results: Giorgio Petrosyan & Buakaw Win, Saenchai Upset By Pinca

Yokkao Extreme took place in Milan, Italy today and despite the lack of means to watch the event, results are out. Among match-ups featured on the card were Buakaw Por. Pramuk vs. Dzhabar Askerov in the main event, Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Abraham Roqueni and Saenchai vs. Fabio Pinca. 

Not surprisingly, Buakaw Por. Pramuk defeated Dzhabar Askerov for the second time. Giorgio Petrosyan took what people are saying was a clear decision over Abraham Roqueni. In a bit of an upset, Fabio Pinca defeated Saenchai by decision. Saenchai was not the overwhelming favorite because of the big weight difference, but many expected him to win. This is the first time Saenchai has ever lost to a farang (Non Thai).

We can only work with what we have here officially from Yokkao, so many results are not complete but we do have the winner of each fight at least. We'll update these results with more details when they get out.

It's Showtime Champ Sahak Parparyan Defeats Hakan Aksoy in Eindhoven

Yesterday in Eindhoven, Holland, Fightsensation II took place and it featured a lot of up and coming Dutch-based fighters along with a fight between two of the higher-ups at the weight around 85kg.

The It's Showtime World Champion at 85kg, Sahak Parparyan, met Hakan Aksoy. Parparyan was coming off a bit of a layoff, as he was scheduled to fight in September against Vjekoslav Bajic but couldn't due to an injury sustained. Sahak's last recorded win was against Moises Ruibal on June 18, but he did win two fights on the third season of Enfusion in August. Aksoy defeated Bogdan Stoica in July, although Stoica lost due to an injury sustained. Sahak took a decision over Aksoy, further cementing himself as one of the top at 85kg. From all the accounts I've heard, Sahak looked really good and the only thing that held Aksoy up was his incredible chin. Sahak has really come into his own since permanently fighting around 85kg and not hanging around higher weights.

It should be interesting to see what's next for Sahak, but for now the only thing set for him is the finals of Enfusion which are supposed to take place some time in April in Holland. He's apparently fighting the Slovenian fighter Franci Grajs in the semi-final of the one night final tournament.

Full results of the A Class fights on the card below:

Sahak Parparyan def. Hakan Aksoy by decision.

Ilias El Hajoui def. Martin Benton by TKO.

Morena Jansen def. Abdel Imkech by decision.

Dennis Stolzenbach def. Michel Andrade by KO.

Jan Pruimenboom and Buray Buzaryilmaz fight to a Draw.

Robbie Hageman def. Twan Aarts by decision.

Fikri Ameziane def. Schacht by decision.

Jafhar Wilnis def. Ralph Blewanus by TKO (Doctor Stoppage).

Ondrej Hutnik Wins Enfusion -95kg Season

The Enfusion -95kg season has finally come to an end in Prague, Czech Republic yesterday. The season consisted of a men's tournament at -95kg and a women's tournament at -63.5 kg. The final four competitors in the men's bracket were Ondrej Hutnik, Mohamed Boubkari, Frank Munoz and Wendell Roche. For the women, Julie Kitchen, Alaide Lawant, Hannah Mjoberg and Maria Bastasin were left.

Ondrej Hutnik was matched up with Mohamed Boubkari in the first semi-final and in the second, Frank Munoz went against Wendell Roche. Hutnik and Munoz both advanced by way of unanimous decision to meet in the finals. Hutnik took a unanimous decision over Munoz in the final to win the one night tournament and the Enfusion -95kg season. Ondrej Hutnik has quietly risen to the top of the -95kg weight range, just a few years after competing at 86kg, and 75kg before that. He's really excelled at this weight, winning all six of his fights in 2011. I'd definitely like to see him get a shot at Danyo Ilunga for the It's Showtime title at the weight.

For the women's bracket, Julie Kitchen was matched up with Maria Bastasin and Alaide Lawant took on Hannah Mjoberg. In quite an upset, Maria Bastasin forced a referee stoppage over Kitchen in the first round to advance to the finals. Alaide Lawant scored a unanimous decision over Hannah Mjoberg to meet Bastasin in the finals. Lawant ended up taking a unanimous decision over Bastasin to win the entire season.

MPL and It's Showtime veteran Tomas Hron knocked out Fatih Cam in the second round, rebounding from a KO loss to Nathan Corbertt in September. Full results below:

A-1 WCC Results: Yohan Lidon Retains Title Against Gregory Choplin

Another installment of the A-1 World Combat Cup series took place in Lyon, France on December 7, and while it's a bit late, results have just gotten out recently. The original card was supposed to have top French fighters such as Albert Chey, Karim Bennoui, Fabio Pinca and Mickael Piscitello but none of them ended up fighting. Chey and Bennoui were moved to a later date, Pinca is fighting on December 18 in the Thai Fight Finals and Piscitello got KO'd by Buakaw not too long ago. Nevertheless, the card went on and still had some decent match-ups.

Two of France's top fighters, It's Showtime 73MAX World Champion, Yohan Lidon and Gregory Choplin faced off for Lidon's WBC World Muaythai Middleweight Title. The two had met before, with Choplin taking a decision back in June of 2008. This time, Lidon took the win, taking a doctor stoppage in the fourth round over Choplin. It sounds like Choplin got injured and couldn't continue. Lidon rebounds from his loss to Vladimir Moravcik last month and Choplin has now dropped two in a row, losing to Abdallah Mabel last month.

A few Thais also picked up wins over their French counterparts. Kaopon Lek, the former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium champ who has been living in Italy for quite some time now, knocked out Crice Boussoukou in the second round. He's been fighting mostly in France and Italy for a long time now, and still going strong at 34 years old. Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, who was originally scheduled to face Fabio Pinca, knocked out Fares Bechar in the fourth round.

Full results below:

Abderahmane Penda def. Aydin Tuncay by decision.

Songniyom def. Boubu Konta by KO in Round 3.

Zinedine Hameur Lain def. Patrick Liedert by decision.

Kaopon Lek def. Crice Boussoukou by KO in Round 2.

Ludovic Millet def. Frederic Berichon by decision.

Berneung def. Mohamed Houmer by TKO (Ref. Stoppage) in Round 2.

Rumble of The Kings 2011 Results

SAtoSwedish promotion "Rumble of The Kings" ran their annual November show yesterday, a night of big fights usually somehow involving Jorgen Kruth in a fight. This year was no different, but this year also hosted some fireworks as Yodsaenklai Fairtex vs. Artur Kyshenko as well as Dzabar Askerov vs. Chahid Oulad el Hadj. It was an internet PPV show with a mixed card of Mixed Martial Arts and K-1 fights, with the fight between Marius Zaromskis and Bruno Carvalho making international headlines thanks to Zaromskis landing a somersault kick during the fight.

A fight originally advertised as the main attraction was Ray Sefo vs. Jorgen Kruth in MMA rules, but apparently that fight was scrapped in favor of Kruth taking on Yusuki Kawaguchi. Kawaguchi is a fighter who never quite moved up the ranks in Japan as he is a Heavyweight, a division known to be weak for Japanese fighters, but he does have one notable victory over James Thompson in DREAM and has fought Mariusz Pudzianowski. The fight with Pudz leaves one to believe that he knew what he was getting into stepping into the ring against Jorgen Kruth in his home promotion and went down to Kruth in the first round via TKO after controlling him with his Judo early on. This is Kruth's fifth consecutive MMA win, most of which happened in his home promotion of ROTK, so take that with a grain of salt.

Yoshihiro Sato stepped up to fight at 75kg against Alex Tobiasson Harris. Sato held his own in the first round using his kicks and length to his advantage as he usually does before getting overwhelmed in the second round by Harris's boxing. The third round proved to be equally frustrating for Sato who was unable to break Harris's rhythm and he ended up dropping yet another decision to a fighter that many have only seen fight a few times. Sato has had a frustrating few years and should stick to 70kg fights, but it is always good to see a Japanese Kickboxer hitting the international scene, win or lose. Another disappointing fight came when Askerov met Chahid. This was an evenly-matched bout between two of the world's most exciting 70kg fighters and had a strange ending. Chahid took an unintentional low blow, much like in the Giorgio Petrosyan fight from earlier this year, and much like that fight, did not return to his feet to fight. Now, this is where it gets strange. The ref gave Chahid three minutes to recover, and after Chahid did not get back to his feet, the ref simply counted him down and gave the victory to Askerov. To say that this is wrong is an understatement, in situations like this a fight like that would be considered a No Contest, not be ruled in the favor of the fighter delivering a foul.

The feature bout of the evening at least saw some better action, as Artur Kyshenko was able to best Yodsaenklai Fairtex in three rounds. Both men stood toe-to-toe and threw everything they had at each other, with Yod simply being the smaller of the two fighters and having lost a step with his weight gain over the past few years was not as nimble as he needed to be. This included in the third round dropping his hands and taking damage with hopes of finding an opening from Kyshenko, which sadly did not work out. Kyshenko took the win and is having a stellar year.

You can watch the event live for free on www.livefightcode.tv. All you have to do is sign up.

Fight Code Rhinos Semi-Final #1:

Vitali Akhramenko def. Pacome Assi by Unanimous Decision. Very close fight. Akhramenko dominated the first round but Assi came back in rounds 2 and 3 and there could be a case made for him winning. Akhramenko's conditioning in this fight was very bad. Assi has improved immensely over the course of the year.

Fight Code Rhinos Semi-Final #2:

Freddy Kemayo def. Yuksel Ayaydin by Unanimous Decision. Great fight, non-stop action throughout. Pretty close and could've gone to an extra round.

Yoann Kongolo def. Hicham Zentari by TKO (Body Kick) in Round 2. Zentari had a granite chin but Kongolo got around that and finished him to the body. Kongolo is a beast.

Fight Code Dragons Final 8:

Yuri Bessmertny def. Armen Petrosyan by KO (Right Hook). Armen came out strong and looked like he hurt Bessmertny. Armen came at Yuri with full on offense and Yuri landed a counter hook, knocking him down. Armen got up and went at Yuri again, this time Yuri landed a vicious right hook. Armen got up but the referee waved off the fight.

Fight Code Dragons Final 8:

Abdallah Mabel def. Xu Yan by Unanimous Decision. Commentator is making a fuss about the decision just because Xu Yan was better in the third round and disregards anything that happened in the two rounds before.

Fight Code Rhinos Final:

Vitali Akhramenko def. Freddy Kemayo by decision. He wins $80 000 US.
