Behold: Kevin Ross and Andy Souwer Sparring

  • Published in K-1

In the kickboxing and muay thai worlds there are sometimes some strange separations that exist. That seems to be the case with the American muay thai community and the European kickboxing scene. Well, Andy Souwer put on a seminar in California last month, and believe it or not, this means he met with American muay thai fighter Kevin Ross. So Ross and Souwer did some sparring and if you are a fan of both, it is quite awesome to watch.

Ten Questions with Lion Fight 21's Kevin Ross

  • Published in Interviews

This Friday evening on AXS TV we'll get the pleasure of watching one of the biggest rematches in Lion Fight history at Lion Fight 21. Kevin Ross and Tetsuya Yamato had a knock down, drag out brawl at Lion Fight 11 and on Friday evening they will have a rematch that has the muay thai world buzzing. We asked Kevin Ross ten questions before his big fight and got his opinion on time off, the rematch and how Joe Schilling is doing.

LK: The first fight with Tetsuya Yamato saw a lot of action, a lot of blood and both of you looking fantastic regardless of who won or lost. Since the last fight you’ve both been on a winning streak, Yamato defeating Sagetdao and Masaaki Noiri, you Embree, Mauceri and Thompson. The big difference is that his fights were in kickboxing, do you think that gives you an edge?

Yamato has more of a kickboxing style anyway so it's not really that big a deal to go back and forth, although he does like to fling those elbows hahaha

LK: The Yamato loss ended 2013 for you as 2-2, but 2014 saw you go 3-0, was that important for you to have such a streak before fighting Yamato again?

KR: Not really, I don't dwell on wins/losses, I'm more concerned with the improvements I've made and the performances I've put on

LK: Who had the idea to fight again, was it you, Yamato or Lion Fight who pushed for it?

KR: I'm sure it was a bit of all 3. It was a great fight and good for everyone so we all want to do it again 

LK: Is it possible for this rematch to live up to the hype, or are you kind of hoping to have an easier time with this fight and less of a knock-down, drag-out, grueling affair?

KR: I want all my fights to be ones that go down in history as great, I always want people to be entertained and as long as they are than I'm happy. I don't think you can ever really compare fights, as they are so unique and different in their own ways 

LK: You’ve had some time off since your last fight, was it important for you to get some rest after being as busy as you were after you returned from your injury?

KR: No, I hate time off and never want it, it was out of my hands unfortunately. I'm sure that my body and brain were happy to have a break but I always want to be as active as possible 

LK: How does it feel to see one of your good friends in Joe Schilling having the level of success that he’s had both in the kickboxing world and MMA arena over the past few years?

KR: I couldn't be happier for him! I'm a Muay Thai purist and will always prefer it but seeing him active and doing so well is wonderful 

LK: Do you still have the itch to try out kickboxing now that it is taking off a bit more in the United States or are you focused on muay thai for now?

KR: I've been focused on Muay Thai since day one, it's my true love, it's my passion and will always prefer it to any other type of fighting but as long as I'm in there than that's good enough for me

LK: What’s the most valuable lesson that you’ve learned fighting over the past few years since your return from your knee injury and your profile being on the rise like it is?

KR: I'd say that no matter what struggles lay in front of you they can either be set backs or set ups for further progression, it's just a matter of how you look at them. When bad things happen I view them as tests to see if I really want something. You either overcome them or quit. They show you who people truly are. That's something I've always known, these last few years just instilled those things in me further.

Lion Fight 13 Results

  • Published in Americas

Lion Fight

Lion Fight 13 went down tonight in Las Vegas in a night of some hard-hitting action that saw some shocking moments unfold through some very close fights. Don't be fooled by the amount of decisions on the card, as each fight had their own appeal and saw lots of action. Kevin Ross found his way to the win column again and while he wanted to avoid any decisions in 2014 he found himself scoring a Split Decision over Matt Embree in an incredible, entertaining and close bout with Matt Embree. Both men should be applauded for their efforts in that fight.

The main event saw Australian Caley Reece take the fight to Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Champion Tiffany Van Soest. Van Soest was the favorite going into the fight but Reece's use of the clinch and sweeps was what was able to separate her from Van Soest in the close fight. The fight was difficult to score, depending on how you saw rounds one and five, but Reece looked strong in round three, Van Soest in round four. It was a great fight from both women and saw a new champion crowned.

Lion Fight also announced that Lion Fight 14 will take place on March 28th from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, with Cris "Cyborg" Justino vs. Jorina Baars for the Lion Fight Women's Welterweight Championship, Gregory Choplin vs. Marco Pique and Malaipet vs. Shane Oblonsky.

  • Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Championship: Caley Reece (R5 - SD) Tiffany Van Soest (C)
  • Kevin Ross (R5 - SD) Matt Embree
  • Coke Chunhawat (R5 - UD) Rami Ibrahim
  • Jason Andrada (R5 - Dec.) Andy Singh
  • Nick Chasteen (R5 - UD) Jonathan Del Rosario
  • Josh Shepard (R5 - UD) Daniel Kim
