Thailand vs. Europe, Sept. 17: Danyo Ilunga Returns


Elite Boxing is headed to Stuttgart, Germany on September 17th with another addition to their Thailand vs. Challengers series. The event is being hailed as Thailand vs. Europe, pitting Thai fighters against European fighters.

Elite Boxing is looking to expand their brand, with this being the first of two shows in Germany this year. They'll head back to Germany to do a show in Ulm in November, which will be touted as Thailand vs. Germany. Both of these German events will be broadcast live all over Europe on Eurosport. A Thailand vs. Russia themed event will also be held in Russia in October.

Elite Boxing is becoming a fun promotion to follow in the muay thai scene, and it should get even better as the number of events is supposed to get up to twelve by next year. Elite Boxing are really looking at making a run to be one of the top promotions in the world. The inaugural Thailand vs. Challengers series was broadcasted to 600 million homes in 180 countries across the world. They're trying to build off of that now by holding shows around the world and expanding.

Here's the full fight card of Thailand vs. Europe below:

Danyo Ilunga vs. Ramazan Ramazanov (K-1 Rules)

Fadi Merza vs. Madsua Lamai Gym

Andi Rogner vs. Jaochalam Chatrkanogym

Ait Said vs. Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn

The LIVE stream of Battle in the Desert 3 is tonight, but check out the weigh-in results here

I'm not even sure how to approach the level of professionalism that's endemic to LiverKick.com. I can't open an article with an incoherent ranting about something I ate the previous night followed by a loosely associated Christopher Llyod reference. That's not going to work on this side of the MiddleEasy Network. These guys are kickboxing and Muay-Thai knowledge warriors. For today, I will play the guy in the back of the class copying off of Dave Walsh, Rian Scalia and Sam Sattler's homework. For the first time in the MiddleEasy Network history, I will leave MiddleEasy.com in order to covertly hop over to LiverKick.com and cover Lion Fight Promotions 'Battle in the Desert 3' being held in Primm, Nevada (yes, that's the same place Fallout 3: New Vegas took place). The event will be streamed LIVE at GFL at 8:00 pm EST so get your unhealthy and greasy snacks ready.

Here are the weigh-in results for the event, which also include some nifty pictures.

Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ vs. Cosmo Alexandre - Muay-Thai giant, Cosmo Alexandre will face off against fellow Muay-Thai giant (and Lumpinee champion) Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ in a middleweight superfight. Brazil meets Thailand, you don't want to miss this one. You meaning myself, at least.

Watch The Voice Versus Sugar Ray Tonight on HDnet

Tonight on HDnet the latest episode of The Voice Versus will debut at 10PM Eastern time, featuring one of the biggest living legends in the world of sports today, Sugar Ray Leonard.

Sugar Ray Leonard is one of the biggest names to ever come out of the boxing world, spilling over into film like his recent appearance in "The Fighter" with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. Sugar Ray kicks off the interview with Schiavello by discussing his namesake and taking the name from the "Real Sugar Ray." As always, Schiavello is prepared with a lot of material to discuss with Sugar Ray, even catching him off guard a few times, such as asking him about the irony of the name Sugar Ray and having childhood diabetes.

Sugar Ray comes across extremely affable throughout the show, talking about some of the criticism he received over the years, such as his fame rolling over from the Olympics and not always facing "top competition" in the eyes of critics. Sugar Ray goes into depth about how he has his nice-guy image and how in the ring he always got work done, no matter what.

Schiavello knows the right questions to ask and a fighter on the level like Sugar Ray is a decidedly big step up from his past interviews. That isn't to say that they were lesser interviews, but Sugar Ray Leonard is a huge name in the world of sports who has been around for decades now. It is great to see Schiavello getting the attention he deserves and scoring what is a big interview. It only means bigger and better things for this series and for HDnet.

Do not miss this show, tune in tonight at 10PM Eastern time on HDnet.
