Tatneft Cup 2012 1st Stage 2nd Selection Results

Fighters took to the ring at the Tatneft Arena in Kazan, Russia for the second selection of the first stage of the 2012 Tatneft Cup. Winners will move on and join the winners from the first selection that took place on December 17, at the second stage (quarter finals). In total four selection events will be held in the first stage.

A few changes were made to the card, as the two Portuguese fighters, Bruno Carvalho and Luis Morais were unable to acquire a visa. Valeriy Podoyakhin was substituted in for Bruno Carvalho to face Enriko Gogokhia at -70kg and Oleg Zablodskiy stepped in for Luis Morais to face Dmitry Bezus at Heavyweight. Neither had any success though, as Gogokhia knocked out Podoyakhin in the third round and Bezus stopped Zablodskiy in the first. Gogokhia and Bezus are veterans of the Tatneft Cup, with Bezus losing in the final last year to Hicham Achalhi.

Two Japanese fighters, Masakazu Watanabe and Tsutomu Takahagi made the long trip to Kazan but were both unsuccesful. Watanabe, the Krush veteran, dropped a unanimous decision to Edvin Erik Kibus of Estonia at -70kg. Takahagi, competing at heavyweight, was knocked out in the second round by Tsotne Rogava, a fighter from Ukraine who is only 18 years old and has already fought the likes of Ismael Londt and Stefan Leko. 

In the -80kg division, possibly the best division in the Tatneft Cup, Vitaly Nikiforov  of Ukraine took a unanimous decision over Rain Karkinen of Estonia. Nikiforov's win put Ukraine at 3-0 for the event. One time It's Showtime fighter Errol Koning of Holland defeated Omar Amrani of Germany when Amrani gave up in the fourth round.

Be on the lookout for more Tatneft Cup content, as we have an interview with the organizers coming up shortly. Quick results below.

Yokkao Extreme Results: Giorgio Petrosyan & Buakaw Win, Saenchai Upset By Pinca

Yokkao Extreme took place in Milan, Italy today and despite the lack of means to watch the event, results are out. Among match-ups featured on the card were Buakaw Por. Pramuk vs. Dzhabar Askerov in the main event, Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Abraham Roqueni and Saenchai vs. Fabio Pinca. 

Not surprisingly, Buakaw Por. Pramuk defeated Dzhabar Askerov for the second time. Giorgio Petrosyan took what people are saying was a clear decision over Abraham Roqueni. In a bit of an upset, Fabio Pinca defeated Saenchai by decision. Saenchai was not the overwhelming favorite because of the big weight difference, but many expected him to win. This is the first time Saenchai has ever lost to a farang (Non Thai).

We can only work with what we have here officially from Yokkao, so many results are not complete but we do have the winner of each fight at least. We'll update these results with more details when they get out.

It's Showtime Champ Sahak Parparyan Defeats Hakan Aksoy in Eindhoven

Yesterday in Eindhoven, Holland, Fightsensation II took place and it featured a lot of up and coming Dutch-based fighters along with a fight between two of the higher-ups at the weight around 85kg.

The It's Showtime World Champion at 85kg, Sahak Parparyan, met Hakan Aksoy. Parparyan was coming off a bit of a layoff, as he was scheduled to fight in September against Vjekoslav Bajic but couldn't due to an injury sustained. Sahak's last recorded win was against Moises Ruibal on June 18, but he did win two fights on the third season of Enfusion in August. Aksoy defeated Bogdan Stoica in July, although Stoica lost due to an injury sustained. Sahak took a decision over Aksoy, further cementing himself as one of the top at 85kg. From all the accounts I've heard, Sahak looked really good and the only thing that held Aksoy up was his incredible chin. Sahak has really come into his own since permanently fighting around 85kg and not hanging around higher weights.

It should be interesting to see what's next for Sahak, but for now the only thing set for him is the finals of Enfusion which are supposed to take place some time in April in Holland. He's apparently fighting the Slovenian fighter Franci Grajs in the semi-final of the one night final tournament.

Full results of the A Class fights on the card below:

Sahak Parparyan def. Hakan Aksoy by decision.

Ilias El Hajoui def. Martin Benton by TKO.

Morena Jansen def. Abdel Imkech by decision.

Dennis Stolzenbach def. Michel Andrade by KO.

Jan Pruimenboom and Buray Buzaryilmaz fight to a Draw.

Robbie Hageman def. Twan Aarts by decision.

Fikri Ameziane def. Schacht by decision.

Jafhar Wilnis def. Ralph Blewanus by TKO (Doctor Stoppage).



Ondrej Hutnik Wins Enfusion -95kg Season

The Enfusion -95kg season has finally come to an end in Prague, Czech Republic yesterday. The season consisted of a men's tournament at -95kg and a women's tournament at -63.5 kg. The final four competitors in the men's bracket were Ondrej Hutnik, Mohamed Boubkari, Frank Munoz and Wendell Roche. For the women, Julie Kitchen, Alaide Lawant, Hannah Mjoberg and Maria Bastasin were left.

Ondrej Hutnik was matched up with Mohamed Boubkari in the first semi-final and in the second, Frank Munoz went against Wendell Roche. Hutnik and Munoz both advanced by way of unanimous decision to meet in the finals. Hutnik took a unanimous decision over Munoz in the final to win the one night tournament and the Enfusion -95kg season. Ondrej Hutnik has quietly risen to the top of the -95kg weight range, just a few years after competing at 86kg, and 75kg before that. He's really excelled at this weight, winning all six of his fights in 2011. I'd definitely like to see him get a shot at Danyo Ilunga for the It's Showtime title at the weight.

For the women's bracket, Julie Kitchen was matched up with Maria Bastasin and Alaide Lawant took on Hannah Mjoberg. In quite an upset, Maria Bastasin forced a referee stoppage over Kitchen in the first round to advance to the finals. Alaide Lawant scored a unanimous decision over Hannah Mjoberg to meet Bastasin in the finals. Lawant ended up taking a unanimous decision over Bastasin to win the entire season.

MPL and It's Showtime veteran Tomas Hron knocked out Fatih Cam in the second round, rebounding from a KO loss to Nathan Corbertt in September. Full results below:
