Yohan Lidon, the former It's Showtime 73MAX Champion, defeated a Thai by the name of Suadao via KO in Round 1, although it looked like the Thai might've thrown the fight.

He holds a stoppage win over Rico Verhoeven from last year.

Johann Fauveau Defeats Jordan Watson, Yetkin Ozkul Defeats Thomas Adamandopoulos In France

Today in Marseille, France, a big kickboxing event went down at Le Dome de Marseille, which holds 8 500 people and from all indications, it was a full house. Originally, Andy Souwer was scheduled to fight Johann Fauveau but Souwer pulled out due to K-1's return. As a result, Jordan Watson stepped in for Souwer, leaving Fauveau with a very formidable opponent still.

In the main event, two of the top kickboxers in the world around the weight of 61kg met for the ISKA World Title at -62.3kg under K-1 rules, as Yetkin Ozkul fought the hometown former champion, Thomas Adamandopoulos. Although Adamandopoulos lost this title to Karim Bennoui back in November via split decision, Bennoui must've had the title stripped or vacated it himself. Yetkin Ozkul has been on a roll lately, and he continued that today, surprisingly stopping Adamandopoulos in the fourth round via TKO. Adamandopoulos had only been stopped once previously years ago but Ozkul has really heavy hands that have lead to two first round knockouts of Ilias El Hajoui. This win should cement Ozkul in the minds of many as one of the top kickboxers around 61kg, and I'd like to see him fight Karim Bennoui.

Another ISKA K-1 rules world title was on the line at 70kg, as the aforementioned match-up of Jordan Watson and Johann Fauveau took place. I highlighted both of these fighters in my post yesterday as two who should definitely be in one of the big kickboxing tournaments for K-1 or Glory. Fauveau won a decision in what sounds like a great fight. Watson's team, Bad Company Gym, said that he won the first three rounds but got tired after, also saying that Fauveau was really tough. This win should definitely open some eyes of the higher-ups in the kickboxing game and hopefully we can see him, and even Watson on the big shows.

A few up and comers of the kickboxing scene fought as well. Bruce Codron, who has made the move over from full contact much like Andrew Tate, defeated Nizar Gallas in a 70kg fight by decision in a rematch of their fight in February, which he also won by decision. At 86kg, Halim Chibani defeated Nicolas Atmani by decision. Full results below:

Yetkin Ozkul def. Thomas Adamandopoulos by TKO in Round 4. (ISKA World Title -62.3kg K-1 Rules)

Johann Fauveau def. Jordan Watson by decision. (ISKA World Title -70kg K-1 Rules)

HW: Nordine Mohiedine def. Noel Cadet by KO in Round 1.

Amel Dehby def. Bernise Alldiss (Women's ISKA World Title -60kg)
