Not only does GLORY 14 Zagreb go down tomorrow, but in the UK Yokkao 8 will happen, featuring Liam Harrison vs. Houcine Bennoui in the main event. We look forward to hearing all of what goes down in the UK for this huge event. Here are the weigh-in results.
Tomorrow in Zagreb, Croatia, we'll see GLORY 14 take place. GLORY 14 features a Middleweight Contender tournament as well as a Lightweight title fight between Andy Ristie and Davit Kiria. The whole event is topped off with Mirko Filipovic vs. Remy Bonjasky in Remy Bonjasky's retirement bout, which makes this a can't miss event. The event will air on tape delay via Spike TV at 9pm Eastern time, so don't miss it.
If you've been paying attention to the internet and the fight scene over the past few months you are probably well aware of online networks, as the UFC launched Fight Pass and WWE (not exactly fight related, but still) launched the WWE Network. It's safe to say that putting your content on the internet for fans to view it is the way to go, especially if you are trying to reach a new, bigger audience. In the case of European promotion Enfusion, they have some television deals in Europe but they do not reach as wide as they'd like to, so they've taken to the internet to post their fight library.
Starting on March 13th Enfusion will launch http://www.enfusionlive.com, which will feature all of their shows to date, which means Fighting Rookies, Enfusion Live and Enfusion Reality shows. They will also do daily broadcasts at 22:00 Amsterdam time to discuss the world of Martial Arts. So don't forget to bookmark Enfusionlive.com and check it out when it launches!Add a comment
It should come as no surprise that Remy Bonjasky plans to retire after his bout with Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic this weekend at GLORY 14 Zagreb, but then again, there has been zero chatter as to this being the Flying Gentleman's retirement bout. If you remember back to December, there was talk about the retirement of Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt, Remy Bonjasky and Jerome Le Banner, but retirements in the sport of Kickboxing are rather fluid affairs.
Today at the GLORY 14 Zagreb press conference Remy Bonjasky made it clear that his fight this weekend with Mirko Cro Cop would indeed be his retirement fight. Not only has age gotten to Bonjasky, but the same eye injury that forced him into retirement before has not relented, which has led to him being unable to perform like he used to. So when you watch this weekend know that you'll probably be seeing the final fight of a legend in Remy Bonjasky.Add a comment
You can't make this stuff up and you can't keep an old warrior down, as Ernesto Hoost announced via Facebook that he'll be fighting on the upcoming Hoost Cup event in Japan on March 23rd. If that sounds wild to you, that a 48 year old Hoost will fight again after such a long layoff then I don't think you follow fight sports that closely. Here is the statement from Hoost.
"Announcing my fight on March 23 in Nagoya Japan. I know some people will say I'm crazy. Maybe I am, maybe not. But it is my own decision and I am not (yet...) plan to fight with the best of the best. If I like it I'll continue, otherwise I'll stop. Anyway I love the preparation, now I realize I have missed this. Btw, My opponent will be Thomas Stanley, he is about my age"Add a comment
