Ernesto Hoost Returns to the Ring on March 23rd

Ernesto HoostYou can't make this stuff up and you can't keep an old warrior down, as Ernesto Hoost announced via Facebook that he'll be fighting on the upcoming Hoost Cup event in Japan on March 23rd. If that sounds wild to you, that a 48 year old Hoost will fight again after such a long layoff then I don't think you follow fight sports that closely. Here is the statement from Hoost.

"Announcing my fight on March 23 in Nagoya Japan. I know some people will say I'm crazy. Maybe I am, maybe not. But it is my own decision and I am not (yet...) plan to fight with the best of the best. If I like it I'll continue, otherwise I'll stop. Anyway I love the preparation, now I realize I have missed this. Btw, My opponent will be Thomas Stanley, he is about my age"

Badr Hari Files His Appeal in the Netherlands

Badr

International Kickboxing megastar Badr Hari might have been convicted over a week ago of multiple violent crimes, but that doesn't mean that he'll exactly be doing any time just yet. Both the prosecution and defense have made it clear that they both are looking to file appeals; the defense that Badr is already reformed and shouldn't serve time, the prosecution that the police mishandled the trial. Badr Hari is up first as Badr Hari and his lawyer, Benedicte Ficq, have filed an official appeal.

It is clear that Badr Hari's legal problems are far from over and that we can expect this to haunt Badr Hari in the coming months. Do not expect any major Kickboxing organization to want much to do with Hari until all of these issues are solved, because it will be difficult to book Hari with confidence until everything has come to a conclusion.

Joe Valtellini to Appear on Combate Americas, New MMA Reality Series

Valtellini

If you follow MMA you know just how difficult it has been to create new stars in the MMA world in the past few years. It looks like someone finally has a new idea and that new idea comes from one of the UFC's co-creators, Campbell McLaren along with reality television show pioneers Bunim/Murray productions for Combate Americas. Combate Americas is a new reality television show to air on mun2 which is aimed at the Hispanic audience. The show will pit eight Hispanic American fighters and various others against each other in a reality show format.

What does this have to do with Kickboxing? Canadian GLORY star Joseph Valtellini will be a guest on the series, along with Royce Gracie and Bellator's Eddie Alvarez, to help guide the fighters along. This is a pretty big deal for Valtellini who is starting to get some name recognition from being a fighter in GLORY, especially after that fight of the year with Nieky Holzken. The show premieres tonight at 10pm Eastern on mun2 and will be broadcast in Spanish with English subtitles.
