Yodsanklai Injured, MPL Debut Against Lidon Scrapped

News has got out that Yodsanklai Fairtex is injured and unable to fight against Yohan Lidon on September 2nd at the MuayThai Premiere League's debut event. Yodsanklai went into his last fight against Yasuhito Shirasu with an injured hamstring and aggravated it in the loss. The rematch against Yohan Lidon is scrapped for the time being. It's been confirmed that the event will be re-scheduled for the next time the MPL heads to California.

Read the full news release from Muay Thai Authority below:

Muay Thai Authority has confirmed with Muaythai Premier League president Clifton Brown that Yodsanklai will no longer be fighting on the Muaythai Premier League's September 2nd event, "Stars and Stripes." Yodsanklai entered his last fight against Yasuhito Shirasu with a hamstring injury and further aggravated it in the loss to Shirasu.

The injury has slowed Yodsanklai down significantly in training and forced him to withdraw from his fight with Yohan Lidon. Muay Thai Authority has confirmed that the entire bout has been scrapped, but will be re-scheduled for the next event the MPL will hold in California.

Yodsanklai, however, is making the trip to America and will be in attendance on September 2nd as well as for the press conference, currently scheduled for Wednesday, August 31st. Fans will still have a chance to meet Yodsanklai as he will be accessible to them at the event.

Brown provided Muay Thai Authority with official letters from Fairtex and Yodsanklai's doctor. Dated August 24th, the doctor's letter was sent to Brown and the MPL verifying that Yodsnaklai has an "R/O hamstring LP leg and polipteal tendon injury on his left leg and has been advised from causing any physical strain on the injury for a minimum period of 3 weeks." In the letter from Faritex, Yodsanklai's manager states "Yodsanklai will travel to Los Angeles to show his support for the league and to apologize."

The news is a big blow to the MPL's debut, but the card is still very strong with the likes of Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Nathan Corbett among other notables.

Simon Rutz Plans to "Tell Everything" at the Beginning of September

If you don't know by now, Simon Rutz, the owner of It's Showtime is quite active on Facebook and replies to many fan questions. Recently, Rutz has been hinting at a big announcement that he'll release at the beginning of September. As we posted on here before, Rutz said that It's Showtime might plan a huge event if K-1 does not live up to their promises.

Rutz, in the past few days has said quite a few interesting things relating to a huge It's Showtime event, a big fight for Badr Hari and It's Showtime in Spain. Here's some recent quotes from Simon Rutz:

"the level of the Spanish fighters are realy high! Soon more information about IT`S SHOWTIME Spain!"

 

"Tik tok, tik tok...... Time is running, almost september the first!

"Soon i announce a big fight from badr!"

Beginning september i tell everything!

Big IT'S SHOWTIME event soon to be announced!

It'll be very interesting to hear what news Rutz has to announce. I think by now it's safe to speculate that It's Showtime will hold another event in Spain, this time in Tenerife. As for Badr's next fight, everything is up in the air right now. With rumors of moving to pro boxing and fighting in the K-1 Final 16 swirling, it's surprising that Rutz would be announcing a new fight for him.  As for the big event, it could be the Spain event or a big show in Amsterdam that Rutz has been talking about.

We've got about a week until September starts, so now all we can do for now is sit and wait.

Leroy Kaestner Set to Return on October 1st

mixfight.nl

After picking up two wins in March, Leroy Kaestner has been missing in action in kickboxing. We've got news about his return. Kaestner will be returning on October 1st in Moscow, Russia at a W5 Grand Prix K.O. event. This is the same organization that put together the 4-man tournament in April that featured Mike Zambidis, Dzhabar Askerov, William Diender and Enriko Gogokhia.

Kaestner's opponent will be Russian fighter Maxim Smirnov. Smirnov has racked up a good streak of wins lately, advancing through the rounds of the Tatneft Cup, qualifying for the final. Smirnov is set to face Dzhabar Askerov in the final of the Tatneft Cup, tentatively at a date to be announced. Smirnov's style is awkward to fight and could pose some problems for Kaestner, who isn't known for power. Smirnov is 8-4 as a pro boxer, fighting in that realm as well as kickboxing. Smirnov's losses have only come to respectable opponents though, so his record is nothing to scoff at.

Kaestner is a solid fighter who has yet to take the next step into the big time. He's lost to Andy Souwer, Nieky Holzken and Armen Petrosyan. Kaestner will look to string some wins together and see if he can take the next step to the top level of the sport. Smirnov is a good test and shouldn't be underestimated. As we saw earlier this year when Albert Kraus lost to Batu Khasikov, many of these little known Russian fighters are quite good despite being unknown to a lot of fans.
