Another Insanely Stacked Card for Kunlun on February 1st

It's hard to argue with the sheer quality of the Kunlun cards that they are putting together in China, the next of which goes down on February 1st in Guangzhou. Kunlun 19 is shaping up to be pretty fascinating with the finals of their 70kg tournament taking place and more on their Heavyweight tournament. I'm not sure that Kunlun will be sustainable into the future, but have fun with it while it lasts because we sure as hell will be.

Here's a breakdown of what they'll be offering. The list of name talent is long, including Konstantin Ghulov, mighty Mo, Hesdy Gerges, Ashwin Balrak, Andrei Herasimchuk, Marat Grigorian, Aikpracha Meenayothin, Davit Kirita, Artur Kyshenko and more. I mean, wow. It's also fair to note that Kunlun is making an effort at getting their stuff out there in English, although it's a bit rough around the edges.

Videos: Glory 19 Mike Tyson Interviews With Verhoeven and Zimmerman

"Iron" Mike Tyson's interviews with the Glory heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven and the challenger Errol Zimmerman have now been released and the full episode will be aired Friday evening on Spike TV.

I always find it makes the best interviews when a fighter is asking the questions. So you can just imagine when you have a legend like Mike Tyson giving his stories leading into each question. It really brings out both Verhoeven's and Zimmerman's personality and confidence and of course they want to impress Iron Mike, I mean who wouldn't?

Both interviews are very interesting and enjoyable, Mike really knows how to build a fighters confidence and bring it out by asking the right things. I have never seen Rico so animated, and excited and Zimmerman even mentions that hes got so much energy from the interview that he wants to go out and punch Verhoeven right now. Lets hope both fighters come into this fight with the same feelings as these videos then we will be in for a treat.

Inside Glory 19: Rico Verhoeven Vs Errol Zimmerman

This video actually got me really excited for Glory 19 on Feb 6th. First of all both Errol Zimmerman and Rico Verhoeven look as though they are training very hard and are hungry for the Glory belt. Secondly, rubber matches are the best. Both men already know each other, they have beat each other once and now we find out who can adapt and overcome to win the 3rd fight. Last but not least, Mike Tyson is going to be watching which might sound like it doesn't make sense, or like its not a big deal to many people but you can tell by both these heavyweights excitement just to talk to Iron Mike how much it means to them, every fighter wants to win with Mike Tyson ringside.
