Liverkick Throwback: Buakaw Banchamek's K-1 MAX Debut Vs. Jordan Tai

The world of kickboxing has a rich history to fall back upon so we here at LiverKick figure, why not? Why not give a glimpse into some of the fights from the past that have made up this wonderful sport and tie it all in to the present. The kids on the Instagram and Twitter like to call Thursdays "Throwback Thursdays," I'm just going to say that this is a LiverKick Throwback.

Since Buakaw is fighting in another K-1 Final this weekend I figured it would be good time to look back at when it all started. In 2004 Buakaw Banchamek (Por Pramuk at that time) made his K-1 Max debut against New Zealand's Jordan Tai, who trained with Ray Sefo. It's hard to remember a day when Buakaw wasn't a name that every fight fan knew, but this video shows us it existed. First of all his name is spelled wrong, secondly his record says this is his pro debut, (there is a not chance that's true) and listening to the commentator calling him "the Thai fighter" felt strange to me. The commentator is also very bias against Buakaw but then again it doesn't seem like he has much idea of whats going on anyway. It's interesting to see that Buakaw's style really hasn't changed a lot over the years, his stamina has improved and he uses his hands a little more now, but otherwise not a big difference. He also lands the same liver punch he recently finished David Calvo off with but Jordan Tai toughs it out and stays on his feet even after getting hit with two more.

Enjoy the fight and allow it to prepare you for this weekends K-1 Final.

Glory 18 Rumored Super Fight Series

Well Glory themselves have not put the super fight series on their website yet but we have heard some rumors, not to mention there are super fights listed on the page that you purchase tickets online. So lets say these are the rumored but not yet official fights for the superfight series for Nov 7th in Oklahoma.

Randy Blake had to be on the card considering Oklahoma is his home town, he will be taking on fellow American Warren Thompson. Both fighters have lost to Brian Collette in Glory, and Blake is on a 2 fight losing streak so he will be looking to get back in the win column in front of his home town fans.

There are 2 Canadians on the card Robert Thomas and Josh Jauncey. Both had their Glory debuts at Glory 16 in Denver and both fighters were thrown in with very experienced opponents. Robert Thomas was put in with #1 ranked at the time and now Middleweight champion Artem Levin. He put up a good fight and took Levin to a decision, but the skill and experience difference was obvious. This time he will take on USA's Mike Lemaire which will be much closer fight in the experience department. Josh Jauncey fought Dutch veteran Warren Stevelmans, who had over 4 times more fights than him. This was one of the best fights on the super fight series in Denver, Jauncey got dropped hard early in the first round with a big left hook but once he got up and realized he had to move Stevelmans really couldn't hit him again. It ended up being a draw, forcing the fighters to go an extra round, where we saw a younger fresher Jauncey outpoint the veteran. Now he is set to fight Korean K-1 Max veteran Jae Gil Noh, when he fought for K-1 he often went by the name "K-Max". He has fought a lot of top fighters including Albert Kraus but he usually fell short against them. He has a strong straight forward style and double the amount of fights that Jauncey does.

Now on to the Heavyweights, Hesdy Gerges vs. Benjamin Adegbuyi, I feel this has a high possibility of being fight of the night. The Romanian Adegbuyi has looked amazing lately, he absolutely dominated Daniel Sam at Glory 16 Denver and technically looked pretty much perfect. I'm very excited to see him take the step up and fight a higher ranked opponent. Hesdy Gerges is on a 3 fight win streak and has been a top 10 heavyweight for quite sometime. He is a tough fight for anyone but often gets into a habit of standing in front of people and covering up, against AdegBuyi this would not be wise considering the Romanians movement and technical combos, standing still will not work. I am very curious to see how this fight plays out and to see how Adegbuyi handles Gerge's relentless pressure and low kicks.
