Absolute domination from Petrosyan. He controlled the fight, slipped almost all of HINATA's punches, checked most of his leg kicks and caught kicks to the body to disrupt HINATA's rhythm. HINATA's lack of head movement made him an easy target for Petrosyan's superior boxing.
The MuayThai Premier League announced today that due to scheduling conflicts, Saenchai Sinbimuaythai would be out of the league format. His replacement will be none other than Saiyok Pumpanmuang. The MPL did mention though that Saenchai will still fight in Super Fights, just he's out of the league format.
Here's the official news release, from MPL's Facebook:
The addition of Saiyok Pumpanmuang now brings the MPL's roster at Welterweight (147lbs/66.67kg) to:
There will be one more fighter added to the division, as Australia's Kurt Finlayson has had to withdraw because of an injury. The MPL is currently working on a replacement.Add a comment
Ben Edwards and Mighty Mo recently threw down in Canberra, Australia at Capital Punishment 4. The fighters went back and forth until Ben Edwards utilized one of the other weapons in his arsenal - the knee. Edwards is known for his punching prowess and when his knee came up out of nowhere, smashing Mighty Mo in the chin, it would be the end of Mo's night. Edwards picks up his second win of 2011 while Mo has been knocked out four times in a row. Check out the video of the KO here.

After successful tournaments at 55kg, 60kg, 63kg and 70kg, K-1 affiliate Krush has announced yet another tournament for the end of 2011 which could end up featuring some of the top fighters at 63kg. Similar to the K-1 Youth tournaments, Krush is presenting an under-22 "Supernova" tournament, as opposed to K-1's under-18 Koshien tournaments, a 16-man tournament with the round of 16 and quarterfinals taking place in October (possibly the 10th) and the semis and finals taking place some time thereafter(all articles say Friday September 12th, but that is obviously before the qualifying rounds, as well as September 12th not being a Friday. My best guess would be Saturday November 12th).
This tournament presents some interesting possible match-ups as there are quite a few of the top Japanese fighters at 63kg who are products of the Koshien system and are eligible for this tournament. From what I've seen, there is no indication if Krush will be looking for lesser-known fighters or if they will allow more established fighters into the tournament, so after the break, I'll look at some of the notable fighters who are eligible for the tournament.

Errol Zimmerman and Nicolaj Falin are set to face off in Spergau, Germany on August 28 at the 4th Merseberger Fight Night event. German website groundandpound.de reported the news.
Originally scheduled to be Stefan Leko taking on Nicolaj Falin, Leko was forced out of the bout with injuries sustained from his recent loss to Catalin Morosanu last month. Errol Zimmerman is stepping in to replace the injured Leko. Zimmerman must be chomping at the bit to fight, as he is coming off a cancelled fight in June. Before that, Zimmerman had won two fights so far this year, topping Zinedane Hameur Lain and Mourad Bouzidi in fights where he dominated the opposition. Zimmerman has made 2011 a successful year so far, unlike 2010 where he lost 3 fights, including a rather lackluster showing against Ewerton Teixeira.
Nicolaj Falin is coming off a first round knockout loss to Mark Miller in May at the United Glory Finals. Falin would definitely like to get back in the win column and doing it with a win over a highly regarded opponent like Zimmerman would most likely open some doors for the German.
Also on the card will be a one night, 4 man tournament featuring Alban Ahmeti, Omar Tekin, Fernando Groenhart and Baker Barakat.Add a comment
