MuayThai Premier League Second Round Results

The MuayThai Premier League held their second event yesterday in Padova, Italy and it featured a ton of familiar names. Unlike their inaugural event, this one had little steam behind it and not even a live stream to watch. No one has seen the fights yet and we're just going off what we're hearing. The results are all confirmed, and a few of them weren't without controversy:

Ilona Wijmans (NED) def. Chantal Ughi (ITA) by Decision
Tainara Lisboa (BRA) def. Sandra Bastian (CAN) by Split Decision

Saiyok Pumpanmuang (THA) def. Mauro Serra (ITA) by Decision
Mohammed Khamal (MOR) def. Liam Harrison (UK) by Split Decision

Vladimir Moravcik (SVK) vs. Rosario Presti (ITA) fight to a DRAW
Ky Hollenbeck (USA) def. Jordan Watson (UK) by Decision

Marc De Bonte (AUS) def. Jiri Zak (CZE) by Split Decision
Kaoklai Kaennorsing (THA) def. Roberto Cocco (ITA) by Decision

Ramazan Ramazanov (RUS)def. Chris Knowles (UK) by KO

Kaopon Lek (THA) def. Charles Francois (FRA) by TKO in Round 3 (Cut)

There was controversy surrounding Ky Hollenbeck's victory over Jordan Watson, and an appeal has been filed. The controversy stems from a knockdown in the first round, in which Watson feels it shouldn't have been a knockdown. Also, the split decision for Mohammed Khamal over Liam Harrison was appealed by Harrison and his team. Last but not least, apparently the decision in the Kaoklai Kaennorsing-Roberto Cocco fight was questionable as well.

We'd all really love to see the fights, and hopefully they can get out on the internet soon. If not, we'll have to wait until the event is aired on Eurosport in Europe or The Score in Canada. The MPL should do a better job next time of not only promoting the event but also providing a stream for fans who want to watch.

Andy Souwer wins by decision in an extra round. Grigorian came out guns blazing, surprising everyone and putting it on Souwer. Souwer rallied back in Rounds 2 and 3, getting an extension round where he took over the fight. This was a great back and forth fight.

70kg Quarter Final: Chris Ngimbi vs. Murat Direkci

Chris Ngimbi wins by Unanimous Decision. Ngimbi got a knockdown in round 2 that sealed the fight for him. It could be argued that this should've went to an extra round with Direkci winning round 1 and 3.

70kg Quarter Final: Robin van Roosmalen vs. Chahid Oulad el Hadj

Robin van Roosmalen wins by TKO (Corner Stoppage) in Round 2. The first round was really close, back and forth non stop action. van Roosmalen took over in the second and gave a standing count to Chahid where Chahid's corner threw in the towel. Looked like Chahid might have a broken jaw.

73kg Super Fight: Yassin Baitar vs. Marat Grigorian

Marat Grigorian wins by Majority Decision (4-1). It was not a bad fight, just the other fights were so good that it made this look somewhat bad. Grigorian didn't look as great as his previous outings, but he turned it up in the third round.

70kg Semi Final: Andy Souwer vs. Artur Kyshenko

Artur Kyshenko wins by Unanimous Decision. The first two rounds were very close but in the third, Kyshenko hurt Souwer, dropping him twice. Souwer was on wobbly legs for a large portion of the third.

70kg Semi Final: Chris Ngimbi vs. Robin van Roosmalen

Robin van Roosmalen wins by Unanimous Decision. van Roosmalen controlled the with his his combos. Ngimbi had trouble getting of.

Rustemi Kreshnik wins by KO (Right Hook) in Round 2.

70kg Final: Artur Kyshenko vs. Robin van Roosmalen

Thailand vs. Europe Recap: Danyo Ilunga Victorious

Muay Thai promotion Elite Boxing continued their expansion yesterday, holding another event in their Thailand vs. Challengers series, Thailand vs. Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. The event was live on Eurosport in Germany and parts of Europe, most notably England. It did considerably well for gate expectations, nearly selling out the Carl Benz Arena, which seats around 2000 people. Serdar Karaca of Elite Boxing subsidiary, Elite Boxing Germany has done a good job in promoting the event domestically and should produce even better results when Elite Boxing returns to Germany in November.

Headlining the card was It's Showtime 95MAX World Champion, Danyo Ilunga. Ilunga was originally scheduled to face Ramazan Ramazanov, but Ramazanov pulled out sometime in the past few weeks. Netherlands based Palestinean fighter Mohamed Boubkari took Ramazanov's place and certainly wasn't an easy match-up for Ilunga. Ilunga picked up a three round unanimous decision, but it seems that he had some trouble with Boubkari. German site described Boubkari as "a tough nut to crack" for Ilunga. This was Ilunga's second time fighting for Elite Boxing, as he fought for them in November of last year.

The rest of the card featured Thailand vs. Europe themed matches. Europe didn't fair too well, with Thailand winning three out of the four. Jaochalam Monggudton defeated Andi Roegner, Tanongdet Sengsimeu defeated Crice Boussoukou and Nongsai Sor Sanyakorn defeated Ait Said, all three by decision. Anatoly Hunanyan defeated Madsua by decision in Europe's lone win.

The event is a step in the right direction for Elite Boxing, who seem to know what they're doing. They've made some smart moves in creating subsidiaries in countries that they're expanding to, such as Elite Boxing Germany and Elite Boxing Russia. This allows the subsidiaries who know the platform of the country and have connections domestically to do the promoting. Many foreign entities make the mistake of trying to venture into unfamiliar territory with just themselves. Elite Boxing is handling this the right way.
