As I mentioned earlier this week there was a nice card coming up, and it delivered with a ton of great action. 

A few of the fights were scrapped, or some fighters were replaced for others.

Ponsaneh Sitmonchai defeats Yuttachai Kiatpatarapaan by TKO in R1

Macki Sor. Suriyunnunchok defeats Phetchartshy Chaoraiooy by KO in R2

Dejsakda Wor. Sangprapai defeats Aekmongkol Kaiyanghadaogym by decision

Detnarong Wor. Sangprapai defeats Trijak Sitjomtrai by decision.

Pamonrunglek Kiatmuu9 defeats Pompean Kiatchonkao by decision.

Singdam Kiatmuu9 defeats Petchboonchu FA Group by decision.

Sam-A kaiyanghadaogym defeats Tingtong Chor. Koyuhaisuzu by decision.

F16 Rajanont defeats Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym by decision.

Sam-A now improves to 7-0-1 on the year and has to be the favorite for fighter of the year at this point in time. F16 is making a great case for fighter of the year as well. 

 

F16 vs. Nong-O

                 

Sam-A vs. Tingtong

With all the mystery surrounding this year's K-1 World Grand Prix, it seems as if we finally have some legitimate news. Dutch writer Karel ten Haaf has came out and told seven of the eight match-ups for the Final 16. ten Haaf has written a book about K-1 and seems to have some connections in the fight scene. According to him, he received a text message from Anil Dubar, Daniel Ghita's trainer, with match-ups for the Final 16. The match-ups are as follows:

Xhavit Bajrami vs. Daniel Ghita

Hesdy Gerges vs. Errol Zimmerman

Ben Edwards vs. Singh Jaideep

Mourad Bouzidi vs. Kyotaro

Peter Aerts vs. Melvin Manhoef

Sergei Lascenko vs. Rico Verhoeven

Badr Hari vs. Anderson "Braddock" Silva

Among the most surprising of these match-ups is the return of Peter Aerts. It was very unclear if Aerts would return to kickboxing at all, but it seems he's going to give another shot at a World Grand Prix. Aerts had said last year that he wasn't sure if he could still do tournaments at his age.

The last fight of the Final 16 is yet to be confirmed. One would think Tyrone Spong but he is currently in the U.S. and was there for a few months about a month ago. Spong has had knee surgery and it's unclear what is going on with him at the moment. We have an idea of the final match-up but nothing is concrete so we won't let the cat out of the bag just yet.

A little over a month after their inaugural event, the MuayThai Premier League will be holding their second event in Padova, Italy. With the event taking place in Italy, and not in America like the first show, there really is not much hype surrounding it. That doesn't mean that it won't be a show though, as the card is once again filled with some great talent.

Check out the full fight card for the event that features Ky Hollenbeck, Jordan Watson, Mohammed Khamal, Liam Harrison, Vladimir Moravcik and Kaoklai Kaennorsing among many other great talents:

63.5KG – SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT
Ilona Wijmans (NED) VS Chantal Ughi (ITA)
Tainara Lisboa (BRA) VS Sandra Bastian (CAN)

66.6 KG – WELTERWEIGHT
Mauro Serra (ITA) VS Saiyok Pumpanmuang (THA)
Mohammed Khamal (MOR) VS Liam Harrison (UK)

72.5KG – MIDDLEWEIGHT
Vladimir Moravcik (SVK) VS Rosario Presti (ITA)
Ky Hollenbeck (USA) VS Jordan Watson (UK)

82.5KG – LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT
Marc De Bonte (AUS) VS Jiri Zak (CZE)
Kaoklai Kaennorsing (THA) vs Roberto Cocco (ITA)

95KG – HEAVYWEIGHT
Dzianis Hancharonak (BLR) VS Abdarhmane Coulibaly (FRA)
Chris Knowles (UK) VS Ramazan Ramazanov (RUS)

SUPERFIGHT FEATURING:
Kaopon Lek (THA) VS Charles Francois (FRA)

 

 

As for Saenchai being on the poster, he was originally scheduled to face Mauro Serra but Saiyok Pumpanmuang took his place. This should be a great card but unfortunately there is nothing in terms of streaming going on for this event. It will be shown on The Score in Canada but probably a week after, as is the case in Europe on Eurosport.

With the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 shrouded in mystery, things are finally starting to come together, apparently. It's a bit over three weeks before the event and no official announcements from K-1 have been made regarding the fight card. Hesdy Gerges has said he's fighting Errol Zimmerman and there are a few other rumored match-ups floating around, but nothing concrete.

We learned of one more fight today though, as Ben Edwards took to Facebook to announce that he'd be facing Singh "Heart" Jaideep at the Final 16 on October 29th. It's a match-up of two relatively unproven fighters in K-1. Ben Edwards is probably most remembered for getting destroyed by Alistair Overeem, but he did win the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Canberra, with a good stoppage win over Paul Slowinski in the finals. This year, Edwards has picked up wins over Mighty Mo and Carter Williams. Jaideep won the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 in Seoul, albeit over a very low level of competition. Aside from that, he did knock out Sergei Kharitonov. This year, Jaideep lost to fellow Final 16 participant Xhavit Bajrami in June and picked up a win over Tsutomu Takahagi at RISE 83 last month.

Hopefully the fight card gets announced soon, but you just never know in this current situation.

In episode 54 of the Warman Kickfighting Show I once again join Steven Wright to discuss the happenings of the Kickboxing and Muay Thai worlds. As Steven was in attendance at the UFC event over the weekend cornering Shane Roller of Team Takedown, which meant travel, this show which was supposed to be up sooner took a little bit longer, but it was worth it. We work out any technical issues we had the first time around and take a look at the recent K-1 MAX, It's Showtime and Thai Fight events, as well as SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis having a successful comeback fight after the loss to JWP.

It was a lot to cover and we did so in the course of an hour, with a look at how stars are made within the tournament format and how there are a lot of bright spots coming up in the kickboxing world, especially at 70kg. (Direct Download)

There is a whole lot to cover and we do our best, which leads us into the next episode! The next episode we take a long, hard look at the loss of Badr Hari, Gokhan Saki and possibly Tyrone Spong from the kickboxing world and just what that means. We also look at how Hari and Saki would potentially make a Boxing career work and what impact they could really have. There has been a lot of negative stuff going around focusing on lack of depth of talent and a lot of that simply is not true, as we go into depth on these issues and more. (Direct Download)
