Roman Mailov Continues Rise, Stops Armin Pumphanmuang

Today in Moscow, Russia, W5 held another event, their eighth of the year, headlined by quickly rising, now 70kg fighter Roman Mailov of Ukraine, against Thailand's Armin Pumphanmuang, who has been featured on Thai Fight this year.

Despite the kickboxing ruleset favoring Mailov, who himself comes from a Muay Thai background, Armin was still probably the biggest test of his career to date. It seems that he was at least a tough opponent for Mailov, as the fight went to an extra round. In the extra round, Mailov stopped Armin with a knee to the body and continued his run at 70kg.

This win makes it 14 in a row for Mailov, whose last loss came in October of 2010 all the way back when he was fighting at 63.5kg. Mailov made his move to 70kg this year where he now has eight wins. He's still only 20 years old and one can assume that he's only going to get better. One thing that I think is past an assumption is that his competition is also going to get better. He's faced more international opponents this year like William Diender, Leo Zulic, Vasilis Kakarikos and not to mention Armin Pumphanmuang.

Also on the event was Mailov's teammate, 18 year old prodigy Alim Nabiev who took a decision over Vladimir Shulyak at 70kg. Nabiev has won 6 fights in Russia this year, including against the likes of Alka Matewa and Denis Larchenko. Nabiev only turned 18 last month and for him to already be at this level at his current age is quite amazing for a European fighter.

Danyo Ilunga Wins Again In Germany

The It's Showtime 95kg champion Danyo Ilunga still manages to stay very busy when he's not fighting on the big shows like Glory or It's Showtime. Yesterday was more of the same, when he returned to the ring in Hamburg, Germany.

Ilunga faced the long time, aged veteran Florian Ogunade. Needless to say, Ilunga made easy work of him and won by TKO. This is Ilunga's fifth win of the year in Germany alone, with him having a total of seven wins in 2012.

His competition is by no means great when he fights in Germany, but it gives him the chance to stay active and progress. Ilunga seems like a fighter that a lot of people have been waiting on to really make some big improvements and so far when he has faced a higher level of competition this year, he's gotten hit a lot and had a tough time, though he still won.

Video of the fight should be up soon, via FightStarTV, who also provided the photo seen above.

Giorgio Petrosyan Once Again Proves He's The Best Kickboxer In The World

Today at GLORY 3 Rome - Final 8, Giorgio Petrosyan once again proved that he is the best kickboxer in the world.

He defeated Ky Hollenbeck, Davit Kiria and Robin van Roosmalen to claim the $300 000 grand prize and solidify himself as the GLORY lightweight champion. It's not just about the results on papers though. The way he defeats top opponents time and time again is unmatched by anyone else in kickboxing. He barely takes any damage and his opponents can rarely ever challenge him over the course of a fight.

His combination of precision, ring generalship, ring smarts and timing set him apart from the rest of the field. Robin van Roosmalen was the LiverKick #2 ranked fighter at this weight and Petrosyan was simply on another level. Only when Giorgio started coasting in the third round, already knowing that he had the fight in the bag did Robin get into the fight. 

With only one loss in his entire career, and being undefeated in kickboxing, this begs the question. Can anyone defeat Giorgio Petrosyan in kickboxing? With the small odds of a rematch with Buakaw happening, along with Buakaw getting older and possibly towards the end or tail end of his career, it seems like we might never find out. The only other option I can think of at the moment is to bring in Aikpracha Meenayothin, a Thai that's in top form and possibly the next breakout name on the international circuit. Even then, we have no clue how he'll adapt to the limited kickboxing ruleset.

If Buakaw and Petrosyan never rematch, it seems possible that the only way Giorgio can lose is by age overcoming him or if he ever decides to fight Muay Thai again, which is doubtful. I know a lot of fans aren't a fan of Giorgio's style and think he's boring or are tired of his dominance, but you can't help but appreciate just how great of a fighter he is.
