World Fighting League Results: Peter Aerts Wins Retirement Bout

  • Published in Kickboxing

The Dutch Lumberjack, also known as Mr. K-1, Peter Aerts retired on Sunday in the Netherlands. After a host of prior "retirement" fights this one seems to be the actual final fight of the three-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion. All of it happened under Melvin Manhoef's WFL banner, with his promotion doing its best to capture the It's Showtime feel and filling that void left by It's Showtime being absorbed by GLORY years ago. Aerts defeated his opponent, Nordine Mahieddine, via a decision, then posed in the ring with other multi-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champions and legends Semmy Schilt, Ernesto Hoost and Remy Bonjasky. 

Other notable results involve Errol Zimmerman losing to Murat Aygun, Fred Sikking defeating Michael Duut by KO, Brian Douwes winning the 95kg tournament, William Diender winning the 70kg tournament and Ertugal Bayrak beating Darrel Sichtman to win the 86kg tournament.

Peter Aerts Retiring on April WFL Card

  • Published in Kickboxing

If you thought that Peter Aerts was retired, well, you were probably mostly correct. He's been retired. Sort of. GLORY held a retirement fight for him against Rico Verhoeven but it never sat well with the Dutch Lumberjack and he came out of that retirement to fight Dewey Cooper, Freddy Kemayo and then Ernesto Hoost a few years ago. But his last fight was definitely in 2014 against Hoost, meaning that it seemed like he had actually retired.

So consider the world's surprise when Melvin Manhoef's WFL announced that on April 23rd Peter Aerts would be retiring live on Spike TV Netherlands. No, this is not an April Fool's joke. Here's a look at the card thus far. The full card will feature three tournaments and eight superfights.

Peter Aerts vs. Tsotne Rogava

Errol Zimmerman vs. Murat Aygun

Michael Duut vs. Fred Sikking

Ibrahim El Bouni vs. Fabio Kwasi

Ilona Wijmans vs. Anissa Haddaoui

Full Card for Tomorrow's W5 KITEK Event Featuring Giorgio Petrosyan

  • Published in Kickboxing

This Saturday in Moscow one of the most-decorated champions of all-time, Giorgio Petrosyan, will head to Russia to leave his mark on the country. The bout will be contested at 71kg against Artem Pashporin for the W5 World Championship. Pashporin is the current world champion and interestingly enough, will be an underdog going into this fight, as just about everyone is against the legendary Petrosyan. But it should be an incredible bout considering Pashporin's recent accomplishments and Petrosyan's return to form since his return to the ring.

Also featured are two other world title fights, at 81kg and 61kg, featuring the 81kg World Champion Alexander Stetsurenko against Vladimir Idranyi and the 61kg World Champion Sergio Wielzen against Timur Nadrov.

LiverKick 2016 Awards: Prospect of the Year - Tenshin Nasukawa

  • Published in Kickboxing

Part of kickboxing's struggles has been in introducing new talent in the face of the ongoing growth of MMA. MMA pays better, there are more opportunities in it and for a top-level striker the transition to MMA can often feel like an easy one (until they meet the limitations of their grappling abilities). That's why when a new star is born in kickboxing it feels special. That is what happened this past year with Tenshin Nasukawa. At the tail end of the year the 18-year-old dynamo who made a name for himself as an amateur in Japan and through his limited muay thai fights fought in the new Japanese promotion KNOCK OUT.

The show lived up to its name and Tenshin's fight was perhaps the best example of that. He made short work of Wanchalong and it become one of the most-talked-about knockouts of the year. Then he made his MMA debut in December for RIZIN with a dramatic submission escape only to finish off his opponent. He then took the house mic and demanded another fight in two days at the next event, to which the promotion was happy to oblige. In his second MMA fight he won via submission and, really, he's a muay thai fighter/kickboxer who won via submission in his second MMA fight.

There is a lot of Japanese talent right now in kickboxing, but none of them have broken through like Masato was able to, facilitating the creation of K-1 MAX. Is Tenshin that guy? Perhaps. It is also a lot of pressure to put on a young fighter, but there is a lot of potential there and he has the world's attention.

When it comes to the world famous Giorgio Petrosyan, there are a number of fights that his fans want to see, but perhaps won't ever get to see those fights happen. Fights with Masato, Buakaw and Yodsanklai are perhaps never going to happen, as most likely we won't see the rematch with Ristie at this point either. Chances of a Sitthichai showdown seem slim considering Sitthichai is with GLORY and Petrosyan is with Bellator.

But what about one of the men that Petrosyan beat to cement his status as one of the all-time greats, Andy Souwer? 

That is the exact question that Andy Souwer posed via Facebook earlier today, when he replied to Petrosyan posting footage from their last clash in K-1 MAX. Andy Souwer would like a third chance to fight Giorgio Petrosyan and honestly, who wouldn't want to see that fight? Petrosyan's next scheduled bout is W5 Grand Prix KITEK XXXIX against Artem Pashporin on February 18th and he'll probably participate in the April Oktagon/Bellator event. Other than that? Things seem rather wide open for a potential rematch with another all-time great.

VIDEO: Masato's Fight With Takanori Gomi From New Year's Eve

  • Published in Kickboxing

While the legendary Masato may be retired, that doesn't mean that he doesn't like to entertain audiences from time-to-time. For the second year in a row, Masato participated in an exhibition bout for the New Year's Eve variety show Kyokugen in Japan. Last year was a bout with rival KID Yamamoto, while this year was a kickboxing exhibition bout with PRIDE lightweight legend Takanori Gomi.

Both men were a huge part of the boom years of Japan's obsession with kakutougi and this fight did take a back seat to RIZIN due to its nature, but it's still worth a watch and has some really crazy moments for two guys fighting for essentially nothing but fun.

Tenshin Nasukawa Makes RIZIN MMA Debut And Cements Superstar Status

  • Published in Kickboxing

Eighteen-year-old Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa made his MMA debut tonight at RIZIN MMA in Japan, proving himself not only to be a force to be reckoned with in muay thai and kickboxing, but in MMA as well. HEading into the fight there were the usual fears that the kickboxing community has when a star kickboxer decides to try their hand at MMA. You'd need to look no further than the bout that preceded Tenshin's, where Andy Souwer was submitted via armbar in the first round to Kazuyuki Miyata. To say that Japanese matchmakers are ruthless in looking for entertainment is an understatement; they thrive on pairing grapplers against strikers in hopes of a highlight reel knockout or submission.

And Tenshin was almost submitted by Nakita Sapun.

All of that happened because Tenshin was unafraid to go to the ground with an actual MMA fighter. Sapun is not much of a grappler, but does have more experience in the MMA ring than Tenshin does, obviously.

Yet, still, Tenshin felt comfortable taking the fight to the ground while everyone expected it to be a stand-up battle. After surviving that sick armbar, most kickboxers would back off, wait for their opponent to get up and fight their own fight. Tenshin didn't do that. Oh no. Instead, he waited and pounced when he saw his opening, winning via TKO.

Then, in something that is very much uniquely Japanese (and why is it?), he grabbed the microphone and appealed for another fight in two nights at RIZIN's next event, claiming that he'd want to fill in for the injured Krazy Horse against Minoru Kimura. Imagine that, a KNOCK OUT and K-1 showdown in MMA rules. My god. The kid who almost had his arm busted wanted more. There wasn't some sap in a suit jamming a mic in his face asking him what he wanted, or to walk him through the finish, he just expressed himself and was aloud to make himself a bigger star. Nobuhiko Takada claimed if the doctors would clear him he could fight.

His debut knockout victory already made him a viral star, but now at one of the biggest Japanese fighting events of the year he proved himself gutsy, talented and fearless with an incredibly bright future ahead of him. We've been searching high-and-low for the next big Japanese kickboxing star to help spark a resurgence of the sport in Japan and it feels like Tenshin could be that fighter.
