Liverkick Throwback: Badr Hari Vs Alexey Ignashov 1

The world of kickboxing has a rich history to fall back upon so we here at LiverKick figure, why not? Why not give a glimpse into some of the fights from the past that have made up this wonderful sport and tie it all in to the present. The kids on the Instagram and Twitter like to call Thursdays "Throwback Thursdays," I'm just going to say that this is a LiverKick Throwback.

Today we are going back to when Badr Hari was a scrawny 18 year old still training with  Thom Harinck, and Alexey Ignashov was a nightmare opponent for any heavyweight fighter. This was a big step up in competition for Badr considering he hadn't really fought any big names yet, he took the fight on only a few days notice and Ignashov had already fought and beat pretty much everyone including Peter Aerts, Remy Bonjasky, and Daniel Ghita. This fight took place on It's Showtime 2003 Amsterdamn in front of Badr's home crowd, and to be honest for an 18 year old fighting a much bigger, more experienced and better opponent he was doing okay, until 2:55 seconds into the 3rd round when Iggy drove a straight right into Hari's sternum which he couldn't recover from. After the fight was called off Ignashov rushes over and helps Badr up, rubs his chest for him and shows him how to get his breath back, Iggy is always such a class act. Badr Hari avenged this loss twice later in his career once in Yokohama, Japan in 2010, and once in Moscow, Russia in 2013, but he was still never able to finish Ignashov even when Iggy was well past his prime.

 

A Few Questions With Glory Middleweight Israel "The Last Style Bender" Adesanya

Earlier this week we were lucky enough to get to chat with Israel Adesanya and ask few questions before his King in The Ring 8 man tournament in Auckland, NZ on August 30th. Israel is the first fighter from New Zealand to sign with Glory and is the current WKBF Cruiser & Light Heavyweight, IKBF Cruiserweight and WMC Oceania Cruiserweight Champion.

LK: Hi Israel, first of all tell us your fight stats, height, weight, record, etc?

IA: Fight record is 34 wins/ 2 losses/ 0 draws/ 16kos, Height: 190cm/6'3", Weight: 84kg/185lbs, Stance: Orthodox, Age: 25yrs old.

LK: What nickname do u go by? I've heard Style bender?

IA: The last Style Bender. Lol big fan of cartoons, 1 of my faves being the Avatar series. Love the story behind it and the idea of me being the last of my kind, so I have to master all the elements of fighting to realize my destiny as the Avatar.

LK: You have an 8 man tournament coming up Aug 30 in Auckland, hows training going, how are you feeling?

IA: Yup for King in the Ring. I'm feeling great man, all I do is train eat sleep and repeat. I could fight tomorrow that's how ready I am.

LK: Do you know any of the other opponents? Who do you think is the best man in the tournament after you of course?

IA: Yup a lot of the guys in the tournament are friends of mine. We've traveled and trained together for years. But it makes no difference, I've had fights with my brothers and sister growing up. I'd fight anyone! I'd fight my grandma even...but she's dead. Makes no difference who has the bad luck to face me that night, I'll pull no punches and I expect them to come at me. I'm not the defending King in the Ring champ, but I know these boys all wanna beat up the Glory fighter. So that keeps me sharp.

LK: What do you think of the 8 man tournament format? Do you like it better than a single fight?

IA: I like the spectacle of it. 7 men will fall and 1 will rise, it's so throwback. But I prefer to have a single fight for the most part. 8 man tournaments are taxing on the body. I won my 1st 1 in 2010 for the IKBF 8man.

LK: You train at City Kickboxing, is that where you first started training? How's the attitude/ atmosphere/sparring partners?

IA: I started in TKD as a kid. Stopped for almost or over 10 years then training in Wanganui New Zealand with Derek Broughton. Then decided to move to the big smoke of Auckland city after visiting City Kickboxing on a road trip. One of the best decisions to train at City Kickboxing with Eugene Bareman and Doug Viney.

LK: I have to ask about your fight with Simon Marcus, how did you feel about that decision?

IA: Man, I know, the people know, and Simon knows he didn't win that fight. He hit me with 2 clean punches the whole fight, I rocked him twice and he wanted cuddles, I bent around all his strike attempts and hit him clean more times in the fight while doing the moonwalk. He'll get this work soon...hopefully on the Glory stage so the world can witness!

LK: How did you find the experience of your first Glory fight?

IA: It was awesome! Turkey was dope. I wasn't nervous at all cuz in China I did 15000 seat shows, so this was nothing. I should have embraced the nerves a bit and stayed true to my style rather than charge him in the opening round. But Verlinden used strong basics and years of experience to keep me at gear to and steal momentum, I respect that... but he still couldn't break me and I know without a doubt I can beat him.

LK: Any talks with Glory about about your next fight?

IA: Yup, classified at the moment. But it's coming soon and I can't wait to make my USA debut. The world gon' luuuurn haha!

LK: What got you into kickboxing in the first place? How old were you? Did you ever imagine you would be at this level?

IA: I was 17, I saw the movie Ong Bak and months after started training Muay Thai. Had my 1st novice fight within 6 weeks and my 2nd fight ever was full thai rules (and won). After UFC 90 witnessing the way Anderson Silva beat Coté, I had the misconception of fighters/ action heroes movies and media put on us shattered. Soon after I made the decision to be the best in the world and I moved to Auckland.

LK: Last question is something I like to ask every great fighter

Hardest puncher you've fought? IA: I don't take many shots in fights, but Doug Viney spars like a mad man and had hit me full clip a full times and I still stand.

Hardest Kicker you've fought? IA: Jamie Eades in a novice fight in 2008/2009. He made me realize to check leg kicks, but I returned the favour years later in a full Thai fight and had him limping with a gangsta lean.

Hardest fight? IA: Still waiting...

Favourite Fighter? IA: Anderson Silva, Mohammed Ali, Prince Naseem, Roy Jones jr, Rickson Gracie, Conor McGregor, Nick Diaz...etc the list can go on. I'm a fan of combat sports

LK: Thanks a lot for your time Israel, is there anything more you would like to say to your fans, sponsors etc?

IA: Just wanna thank those that have followed and believed in me through all this, my training partners, my sponsors Bow Fighters, FX Nutrition, Combat Kings, Stained Skin Tattoos. Stay tuned for this man, just getting started.

LK: Once again thank you, good luck on your upcoming fight, not that you need it.

 

 

Kun Lun Fight 7 Results

The Kun Lun 7 fight card in China was quite a strange event. First of all the music, seems they had their own song made which they played about 100 times during the show, now I can't stop saying "KUN LUN FIGHTS!" Secondly the results, lots of upsets and no finishes, every fight was a decision, and leaving your fight in the Chinese judges hands is the last thing you want to do. Also there was supposed to be a female MMA fight and I have no idea what happened but they both got in the ring, spoke on the mic, cried, hugged and left the ring without fighting. (wish I could understand Chinese)

Hoost Vs. Aerts WKO The Kumite Energy Main Fights Announced

Earlier this month we announced that Ernesto Hoost would be Fighting Peter Aerts for the sixth time in  Osaka, Japan on October 19th. Hoost has won 3 of the 5, so this gives Aerts the chance to tie it up for good, since i doubt they will be fighting for a seventh time, but then again I never expected to see this fight again.

The rest of the WKO: The Kumite Energy main fights have now been announced and we get to see more of the old K-1 names we grew to love. Both Stephan Leko and Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab will be fighting. Leko has been fighting quite frequently lately but having no success at all, he is on a 6 fight losing streak, with the last 5 losses all coming by KO or TKO. If he can't turn it around this fight, we would have to imagine he cannot keep this up much longer. Die Faust on the other hand, has not been very active, hasn't fought since 2010 but has lost his last 5 fights and his last win was in 2006.

Fight Card

Peter Aerts (Holland) Vs. Ernesto Hoost (Holland)

Stefan Leko (Germany) Vs. Tofan Pirani (Sweden)

Andre Meunier (Australia) Vs. Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab (Germany/Morocco)

Yokohama Go (Japan) Vs. Sukmongkol (Thailand)

Lion Fight 17 Fight Card Changes

Lion Fight 17 has changed quite drastically since we last announced it. It was supposed to be the US debut of Thepnimit "Mr. Knock" Sitmonchai but since he had visa issues he is not able to fight. His opponent Dean James got injured at the same time, so this fight had to be scrapped.

Now the co-main event Malaipet Sasiprapa Vs. Justin Greskiewicz has been bumped up to the main event, which hopefully is going to make both men want it more and fight harder for the fans especially considering Malaipet can sometimes be lazy. As for the new co-main event two fighters have stepped up on short notice Brazil's Cosmo Alexandre and Thai champion Jo Nattawut.

As much as I wanted to see Thepnimit fight I feel Cosmo and Nattawu have saved this card by stepping in last minute and adding some real world class Muay Thai to an event who's main event was cancelled.

Lion Fight 18: Yodsanklai Fairtex and Jorina Baars Defending Belts.

Lion Fight 18 will take place on September 5 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. They announced today here that it will include Yodsanklai Fairtex and Jorina Baars defending their Lion Fight World Titles.

Yodsanklai Fairtex won his World Title at Lion Fight 10 a year ago with a unanimous decision over Chike Lindsay. He hasn't lost a fight since November 2011 and has looked like a rejuvenated man since then. Yodsanklai has been showing up in the best shape he has ever been in, and his skills have looked very sharp. I have actually spoke with a few fighters that have fought Yod and they all have the same thing to say, "it's never a good time, and its the hardest left kick I have ever felt." In my opinion Yodsanklai is one of the most exciting and skilled fighters out of Thailand and I'm glad they are finally bringing him back to the US to defend his title, now I wonder who they will match him with. I can't think of anyone on the Lion Fight middleweight roster at the moment that is going to pose a threat to that title.

Jorina Baars shocked the world by beating Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino at Lion Fights 14 on March 28th of this year. Cyborg was the favourite and not only did Baars win, but she dropped her several times with perfect knees and kicks to show who was the better Muay Thai fighter. She fought a great fight against an opponent who was physically a lot stronger by keeping her away with her long kicks and dominating most of the fight for the unanimous decision win. Jorina is confident that no matter who Lion Fights puts in front of her on September 5th she will take care of them as she did Cyborg and retain her Welterweight title.

This is one Lion Fights card I am actually looking forward too, Yodsanklai is one of my favourite Muay Thai fighters, and Baars left a huge impression on me her last fight, I can't imagine a card with both these incredible fighters not being one of their best shows yet.
