Warman's Kickfighting Show #74: This Weekend's Kickfighting Action

Steven "The Warman" Wright (@steventhewarman) and myself (@rianscalia) sat down today to discuss all things kickfighting in the 74th edition of Warman's Kickfighting Show. We discussed all the upcoming action in the kickfighting world, including tomorrow's SuperKombat card and Sunday's "Vuisten Van Vuur" event in the Netherlands with Robin van Roosmalen, Harut Grigorian and Faldir Chahbari. We also discussed Daniel Ghita's move to train with Alistair Overeem, Tyrone Spong and the Blackzillians in Florida.

As always, you can find the podcast on Steven's podbean or the easiest way, by typing in "lordgaul" on iTunes and listening there.

LiverKick Interviews Mr. K-1 Peter Aerts

Aerts

There are not many men who epitomize an entire sport or way of life quite like Peter Aerts does for K-1. In the world of Kickboxing, Aerts is a legend with a whopping three K-1 World Grand Prix victories under his belt and out of all of the years of the WGP happening, only missing one year. It is safe to say that Peter Aerts is cut from a different cloth than everyone else is, and that he was born to be a fighter. To say that Aerts does not like to give interviews is an understatement, especially when it comes to interviews to international media, so when we got the green light from Peter’s wife, Esther, it came almost as a shock to us.

We caught up with Peter Aerts after he landed in Japan last week, in preparation for last week’s Inoki Genome Federation professional wrestling event. We were lucky enough to discuss some current events with him, on a wide range of topics from his retirement, the state of kickboxing all the way to pro wrestling. Peter’s whole career has been full of hefty challenges, and in his final fight it will be no different, as he challenges the young and dangerous Tyrone Spong. The question was burning in my mind, why would Peter Aerts take such a tough opponent for his last fight, although he made the answer sound so simple.

Liverkick.com Interviews Artem Levin

Artem Levin has been the number one fighter on our Liverkick.com Light Heavyweight Rankings for quite some time now. Arguably one of the top pound for pound fighters in the sport if you play that game, he's dominated his opposition for the past few years. He has a fight coming up on March 3 in Russia and another one on March 31. We got the chance to talk to Artem about a plethora of subjects, including his upcoming fights, why he fights the way he does and his future in the sport.

LiverKick: Your next fight is on March 3 against Cheick Sidibe. What do you know about your opponent?

Artem Levin: I’m watching his fight videos. He’s a persistent guy. He’s accenting on knees, using his height, but doesn’t take punches to the head well. He’s characterful. We will see what it is going to be.

LiverKick: Simon Marcus and Joe Schilling are fighting soon. Both of them would like to fight you and Joe Schilling is the interim champion to your world title belt. Will you be keeping an eye on that fight?

Artem Levin: Yes, sure. They are interesting to me. It is expected to be one of the most important fights in career for both. They are looking forward for the next fights. I’m following the things concerned with this fight. It’s going to be a bomb as both don’t recognize a menace in another. Simon has next fight versus Kaoklai on March 16th, and Joe has next fight versus me on March 31st.  Let them define the things between them, and I’m always ready to fight both. You are welcome.
