SUPERKOMBAT WGP IV in Giurgiu Card Announced

  • Published in Kickboxing


SUPERKOMBAT will continue with their World Grand Prix series with the fourth event that is looking to qualify one man for the SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix at the end of this year. This is of course coming hot on the heels of the WGP III event that went down just over a week ago and saw more SUPERKOMBAT action. Outside of the tournament there are some big superfights, including Damian Garcia vs. James Wilson as well as Sebastian Ciobanu in action and a really great fight between Amir Zeyada and Bogdan Stoica.

The Stoica brothers are usually prominently featured in SuperKombat events, with this one being no different, but this time around Bogdan Stoica will have a tough challenge by the way of Amir Zeyada. Zeyada has not been super active over the past year, in fact he hasn't fought since 2011, but it will be great to see him back in action against a top competitor.

The event will be broadcast on EuroSport, in Romania, Fight Now TV in America and worldwide for $9.99.

SuperKombat's November is Shaping Up to be Awesome

  • Published in K-1

SuperKombatIt is nice to be able to pump some good news into the Kickboxing world and it is interesting that the news will branch away from the mainstays of K-1 and It's Showtime and focus instead on Romania's SuperKombat series. SuperKombat is a product of Eduard Irimia, who helped out with the "Local Kombat" shows that were popular in Romania. They are pushing hard and fast to gain a foot hold in the ever-evolving world of Kickboxing in a landscape where K-1 is not the king. It is a bold move and the execution has been anything but flawless, but the effort is noted and is beginning to pay off.

In November SuperKombat plans to run two big shows and looks to benefit from K-1's inability to promote the October 29th World Grand Prix Final 16 event in Nanjing. The finals of the SuperKombat WGP are on November 19th with Catalin Morosanu facing some real competition in Melvin Manhoef in a bout that has been rumored for a very long time but yet to materialize. The Finals themselves features four fighters; Ismael Londt, Erhan Deniz, Sergeii Laschenko and Pavel Zhuravlev and the rest of the card is to be filled out by Ruslan Karaeve, the Stoica brothers and Albert Kraus.

On the 17th, just two days before, it was revealed that Eduard Irimia Productions and Eurosport will co-promote another event featuring big name fighters. It will feature yet another Heavyweight tournament and Superfights, with Hesdy Gerges announced as participating in one of the Superfights. The tournament will feature Rico Verhoeven, Mourad Bouzidi, Anderson "Braddock" Silva, Daniel Sam, Sebastien Van Thielen and Roman Kliebl. For last minute that is pretty good. [source]

Ben Edwards Bests Catalin Morosanu in Australia

  • Published in Australia


This weekend might have been a bit slow when it comes to Kickboxing news, but in Australia there was a battle between two big name Heavyweights by the way of Catalin Morosanu from Romania squaring off against Australia's own Ben Edwards. The two were competing for the Kings of Kombat Heavyweight Championship, but I think most importantly, for standing in the Heavyweight division across the world. Morosanu has been trying to make his way into the elite for a while now, somewhere that Edwards has had experience.

It turned into a slugfest early on, according to reports that we've received, with Morosanu fighting the way that we all know he fights; heavy hands, looking for the knockout blow. Edwards, on the other hand, who hasn't always been known as a technician, fought a smarter fight by going after Morosanu's legs throughout the bout. Morosanu was focused on knocking Ben's head off, which meant that he was not of the mind to check the leg kicks, which was his undoing when it came time for the judges to deliberate.

Edwards won the Majority decision over Morosanu, but it sounds like it was a very entertaining and exciting fight.

SuperKombat's 2011 Awards

  • Published in Kickboxing

Without a doubt, 2011 has been the year that promotions outside of K-1 have stepped up, big time. This includes Romanian promoter Eduard Irimia's SuperKombat. It felt like it came out of nowhere, but came out of a network of local events promoted within Romania successfully by Irimia over the years to build to the formation of SuperKombat. SuperKombat held a World Grand Prix for Heavyweights this year in a world where the only other promotion doing a big Heavyweight tournament was Fight Code. Errol Zimmerman walked away with the SuperKombat One Night WGP, while Sergei Laschenko won the World Grand Prix Championship this year while Vitali Akhramenko walked away with the Fight Code championship. To say that this was interesting would be an understatement.

Over the weekend SuperKombat held an awards ceremony to commemorate their first year of existence in Romania. Of course, it is telling that some of the bigger names in Kickboxing were presented with awards in front of a giant screen that read "EDUARD IRIMIA PRODUCTIONS" on it, but I guess being on the cover of Forbes in Romania is a big deal. Outside of some of the beautiful cities all that I know about Romania is what I learned about the prostitutes that died in a crate container on the way into the Baltimore port in season 2 of HBO's "The Wire." So it is safe to say that Irimia is a big deal in his hometown, big enough to have his name on a board.

Knockout of the Year Errol Zimmerman (vs. Roman Kleibl)
Fight of the Year Russian Cornelius vs. Slavo Polugic
Special Fight of the Year Alexandru Longu vs. Bob Sapp
Best Evolution in 2011 Bogdan Stoica
Newcomer of the Year Benjamin Adegbuyi
Most Popular Fighter Catalin Morosanu
2011 SuperKombat WGP Winner - Sergei Laschenko
