Hero Legends 2014 Results

  • Published in Asia

Hero

The year 2014 has had a bit of an odd start, as the first scheduled GLORY event for February is no longer scheduled and we won't get our first GLORY fix until March in Croatia. K-1 holds an event on January 11th in Gran Canaria, Spain, although the card has come down in prominence a bit with the loss of the Maximo Suarez vs. Shane Campbell fight. Hero Legends went down on the 3rd of January in Jinan, China, including some big names.

  • Xu Yan (R3 - UD) Mike Zambidis
  • Artur Kyshenko (R1 - TKO) Shi Yanzi
  • Simon Marcus (R1 - TKO) Li Bei
  • Wong Chung Kong (R3 - UD) Sheng Pei Kangan
  • Liu Wei (R1 - TKO) Nicholas Lemenche

VIDEO: A Return to Form for Petrosyan vs. Xu Yan

  • Published in Video

\When talking about Giorgio Petrosyan it is difficult to not devolved into hyperbole at times. Petrosyan is one of the most astounding talents that we've seen in the sport of kickboxing yet and back in 2013 we were reminded that he's human. Since Petrosyan's return to the ring from that knockout he's looked good but many had wondered if Petrosyan had perhaps lost a step or some confidence in himself. After last night's performance against Xu Yan at Hero Legends in China I believe that any of those doubts need to be washed away.

The Petrosyan that we saw last night was a return to form in many ways. Everything from his movement to how he would utilize angles to slip strikes and avoid Xu Yan's offense was exactly what we've come to know and expect from a Giorgio Petrosyan fight. Xu Yan is an absolutely formidable opponent and proved as perfect vehicle for Petrosyan to show just how "back" he really is. Anyway, without further ado, here is Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Xu Yan.

Xu Yan Announced as Giorgio Petrosyan's Next Fight on August 28th

  • Published in Kickboxing

Originally slated to be Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Yodsanklai Fairtex on August 28th in China for Hero Legends that fight will no longer take place. Fairtex's camp has been telling people for a while now that it wouldn't happen thanks to an injury and it looks official now. Instead, Petrosyan will be fighting China's own Xu Yan. Xu Yan is one of China's most popular and decorated fighters and the current Hero Legends 70kg champion.

Xu Yan is one of the biggest stars of the promotion and a fight against Petrosyan should be a huge deal in China considering Petrosyan's immaculate reputation as one of the best fighters in the world and one of the greatest of all time. This will be an interesting bout for sure and we are still holding out hope that we see Yodsanklai vs. Petrosyan in the near future.

Card for Hero Legends Featuring Petrosyan vs. Xu Yan

  • Published in Kickboxing

Tomorrow evening in the West, tonight in the East Giorgio Petrosyan will return to the ring against Chinese star Xu Yan in the Hero Legends ring. Xu Yan is a local legend who has seen success internationally and has been one of China's greatest exports. Sure, it isn't the fight with Yodsanklai but such is life, right? There will absolutely be demand for it and people will work hard to make that fight come together in the future.

For now Xu Yan is a fantastic measuring stick for Petrosyan to see if he's still, indeed, the best in the world. A win here just makes us want to see him against Ristie again even more. There should be a live stream for this so we'll keep you posted.
