Sergii Laschenko Has a Grievance with SuperKombat

Sergii LaschenkoNot all is always great in the Kickboxing world, and sometimes fighters and promotions have disagreements. It appears that Sergii Laschenko, winner of the SuperKombat World Grand Prix has yet to receive his winnings from the tournament, including his gift car. Laschenko posted on our Facebook, as well as just about every other Facebook imaginable, a simple plea addressed to SuperKombat promoter Eduard Irimia.

His plea reads as such;

"Mr. Edy Irimia,

please pay me my money or return me my car, which I winned during your GP

in Romania. Dont cheat on the fighters any more."

We've reached out to both SuperKombat officials and Laschenko to get more on this story, but until we hear back from SuperKombat write this off as a possible misunderstanding between the two parties which is hopefully resolved shortly.


Mike Zambidis Back On Saturday Against Fadi Merza

It's been known for a while now that Mike Zambidis would be fighting on this Saturday, April 28 but we're giving you a reminder as there have been a few changes that you may or may not be aware of.

Zambidis is fighting Fadi Merza just outside Athens, Greece in the suburb of Ellinikon at the Helliniko Stadium. He was originally supposed to fight Mohamed Khamal, but Khamal pulled out after the event was moved from April 21 to the current date of April 28. The fight is just a month before Zambidis returns to the K-1 ring on May 27 in Madrid, Spain in a rematch of one of the craziest fights ever against Chahid Oulad El Hadj.

Fadi Merza is coming off a loss to Yoshihiro Sato at Krush.16 on February 17. Merza is a veteran and has been around for a long time, though one could argue his best years are behind him. Nevertheless, he's a good fight for Zambidis just a month before his next fight. This is very similar to last year where Mike Zambidis faced Ali Gunyar, who is very close to Merza in calibre, less than a month prior to winning two fights in one night to win the W5 -71kg belt.

GLORY Forms Independent Governing Body, Glory World Federation

Today Glory Sports International put out a press release announcing the formation of a new independent governing body, the Glory World Federation (GWF). This governing body will oversee future GLORY events.

The GWF will be a non-profit organization composed of "respected persons from the global fight community." Providing regulation for future GLORY events, fighters can appeal against suspensions, controversial decisions or other things of that nature. Any fighter that fights on a GLORY card can register with the GWF and be guaranteed a fair and impartial hearing.

GLORY wants transparency within their organization and hopes that the GWF will be like FIFA. They also want to show that by instituting the GWF that it doesn't matter if a fighter is with Golden Glory or connected to them, making all registered fighters equal. The GWF will represent the rights of the fighters.

The staff is still being finalized but in the press release, it was hinted that the GWF will be chaired by "an iconic figure from the world of professional fighting, somebody with a wealth of experience, in competing, coaching or both."
