Earlier this week I posted a little preview about this fight and how it would determine the top fighter under 110 pounds in Thailand. The fight itself didn't turn out like I thought it would. Instead it was a 1 sided clinic thanks to the overall skill, and beautiful counters from Detkart. I've never seen anybody use such great movement against The-Lek to avoid his attacks. He's usually good for getting inside to unload knee's whenever he wants, but Detkart had great balance to turn him around and push him away most times. Also he tired out which is very unusual, as he is known for pushing a pace like nobody else in Muay Thai. Part of that could be from a broken nose he received from a Detkart elbow.
The full five rounds aren't out yet, but should be soon enough. Here is the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds of the fight.

Romania based kickboxing promotion SuperKombat is back with another event that features yet another four-man heavyweight tournament in its "World Grand Prix" series. SuperKombat has so far held two of its "SuperKombat World Grand Prix" events this year. The remaining two, which includes this Saturday's event will seal the list of participants in SuperKombat's year end World Grand Prix event in Frankfurt, Germany. Each World Grand Prix event features a four man heavyweight tournament, with the winner advancing to the final year end show. So far, Sergei Lascenko and Ismael Londt have qualified.
This weekend's tournament pits Ricardo van den Bos against Pavel Zhuravlev and Stefan Leko against Sebastien van Thielen in the semi finals. The winner will advance to the year end World Grand Prix in Frankfurt.
Also featured on the card are five other fights in the heavyweight division. Redouan Cairo returns and fights Frank Munoz. Both of these fighters could easily fight a weight class under, with Cairo having fought most of his fights between 85 and 95kg. One of the times Cairo did step up to heavyweight, he got beat pretty badly by Filip Verlinden. Another heavyweight fighter, Benjamin Adegbuyi of Romania fights Martin Hauser of Slovakia. Adegbuyi is being brought up slowly in Romania, not having faced great competition yet.

The event airs live on Eurosport if you're keen to watch it. It airs at 9PM CET, which is 2PM EST/11AM PST in North America.Add a comment
November 5th's SuperShowDown show in Scotland is shaping up to be the biggest show in Scottish history and is up there with the best UK shows. Recently, promoter Brian Calder announced that the show was all but sold out, with only a handful of tickets left. Previously, we've had a look at the card as a whole and now we present you with a preview of the 8 fighters who will be competing in the 59kg tournament at SuperShowDown. For those of you who are unfamiliar with names on the UK Muay Thai circuit, I don't think I can emphasise enough how big this tournament is. Six of these eight fighters are ranked in the top 10 in UK/Irish rankings, with the exception being Jonno Chipchase (#11) and Ilias El Hajoui (26-3-1). While the line up includes veterans as well as relative newcomers, this really is anybody's tournament and as we seen in the recent It's Showtime Fast and Furious 70kg tournament, anything can happen! Read on for my run down of the fighters and who I predict will win.Add a comment
