Watch Pavel Zhuravlev vs. Sebastien Van Thielan from SuperKombat WGP III

  • Published in Video

Romania's SuperKombat has decidedly stood out over the year, coming from the Local Kombat shows of years past and building their own World Grand Prix tournament that stretches over multiple qualifying tournaments. While the level of talent within the qualifying tournaments is not great, the winners coming out are without a doubt top notch, including Sergeii Laschenko, Ismael Londt and now Pavel Zhuravlev. Zhuravlev is a guy that you might not know a lot about, outside of his lone K-1 fight which was against Gokhan Saki where he actually defeated Gokhan Saki in a Superfight by Unanimous Decision. Since then he has yet to appear in K-1 again, but the truth is, when he does he will be a force to be dealt with. His specialty over the past few years has been winning tournaments, it seems, not on the big world stage like K-1, but still really solid wins in tournaments, and it was no surprise when he took the SuperKombat WGP III by storm. Don't weigh against him for the loss to Igor Jurkovic at Utlimate Glory in May, that is one of only 6 career losses.

Superkombat  World Grand Prix Monza: Results

  • Published in Europe

Yesterday in Monza, Italy SuperKombat gave the world the finals of their Light Heavyweight WGP in a night that saw a lot of surprises and confusion. The confusion is rooted in the fact that Cedric Manhoef was unable to attend the event, which was upsetting to the fans in attendance. Then Catalin Morosanu's fight never happened because his opponent, Ron Sparks, fell off the entrance ramp during the pre-fight introductions and injured himself. There was also a mishap with the ring that happened during the event and needed to be tended to. 

The rest of the show scored rave reviews, though.

Mike Zambidis to Defend SuperKombat Title Plus More SK 2015 Details

  • Published in Kickboxing

Mike Zambidis captured the SuperKombat Middleweight Championship back in August of 2013 against Harun Kina in Romania and now in January he is set to defend that title for the very first time in a return match. At an Iron Challenge 2015 event in Greece Zambidis is set to defend that title against Kina. If you are wondering why it isn't on a SuperKombat card proper, that's because 2015 will be the year that SuperKombat begins licensing out their brand to interested partners.

Previously they would license out tryout events, but starting this year they will also license out Elimination and World Title fights. The SuperKombat season begins on March 7th with their first event of this season, but look for more events held around the world with fights that impact the world of SuperKombat throughout the year. We'll have more on SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis when it's available.

SuperKombat Looking to License Brand for Shows in 2014

  • Published in Kickboxing

sk

SuperKombat's 2013 came to a close after their last SuperKombat WGP event that saw new champions crowned in many divisions, including a SuperKombat WGP Champion for the third year running. As SuperKombat looks ahead into 2014 they have decided to begin licensing out the brand to interested promoters to help to bring SuperKombat to more cities than they alone could do. It's an interesting idea that we've seen other promotions do, namely K-1 over the past year with their K-1 World Tour events, which can make everyone happy.

SuperKombat gets money from licensing out the brand, as well as finds new talent from these promoters, while the promoters get to promote a larger brand with their own local stars. Fighters also get experience on a show with a solid name brand and can leverage that for more opportunities in the future. It's a win-win for everyone.

“Those kind of events are not organized by SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship but the promoters can get the license to host the elimination bouts. The winners of these qualification fights will have their places in SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s events, including the New Heroes and the World Grand Prix series. On the other hand, all the events and qualification fights included in other events will be announced exclusively on SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s website at www.superkombat.com," added Eduard Irimia.

Andrei Stoica vs. Horace Martin Set for SuperKombat's June 21st Show

  • Published in Kickboxing

June 21st will be a big day for the sport of Kickboxing with a few huge events and SuperKombat is looking to make their stick out more with Andrei Stoica defending his Super Cruiserweight Title against Horace Martin. This will be Andrei Stoica's first defense of the SuperKombat Super Cruiserweight Championship since he won the title back in December against Ondrej Hutnik.

Stoica's last fight was in the GLORY ring in March where he lost via first round knockout to Danyo Ilunga, although there is no shame in losing to a fighter the caliber of Danyo Ilunga. If anything it should inspire him to push harder and to want to prove that he does belong in the ring with the likes of Ilunga.

Expect more announcements on the SuperKombat June 21st show shortly.
