SUPERKOMBAT marches forward their 2013 WGP season this weekend with their SUPERKOMBAT WGP event in Botsani, Romania. The event sees a lot of SUPERKOMBAT staples by the way of Benjamin Adegbuyi, Ionut Atodiresei and Andrei Stoica, while also running another elimination tournament, with the winner moving on to the next round. The tournament bouts are Gaetan Sautron vs. Dangelo Marshall and Leroy Johnson vs. Giannis Stofordis.
The event will be broadcast in over 70 countries through Eurosport International and Eurosport Asia-Pacific. If you live in the greater New York area you'll be able to catch it on Fight Now TV, or you can get a stream via http://www.epicentre.tv for $9.99.
GLORY 10 Los Angeles is rapidly approaching and for those of you who don't want to miss any of the action, you'll be able to catch it live on LiverKick.com, which means getting access to the full event. The final card for the event has been released today, with some changes that we've been hearing about since this weekend. Apparently Steve Wakeling was unable to attain a work visa to enter the United States, which led to him having to pull out of the tournament. He will be replaced by Kengo Shimizu, while Wayne Barrett is still in a reserve bout, now fighting against Rob Plotkin.
Here is the full, updated fight card for Saturday.
GLORY 10 Los Angeles is quickly-approaching, which for Kickboxing fans is a very good thing. Of course, the only caveat for fans in the United States is that this is GLORY's last non-Spike TV event for a while, which means that it will be airing on CBS Sports Network, but that airtime is apparently 12:00am on Monday morning due to it being football season. For those of you that still want to watch GLORY 10 live, well, you aren't out of luck, you are in luck. Why? Because your favorite Kickboxing site, LiverKick.com, will be carrying the event live on internet PPV.
As always, purchasing the event not only supports your favorite fighters and the GLORY organization, but supports LiverKick.com as well. We know that watching events on a computer can sometimes be a bit of a bummer, but we've watched these through hooking up a HDMI cable to a TV and it really does turn out fantastic.
If the embedded player isn't working for you, the purchase through us is still valid and you can watch it here; http://gloryworldseries.com/en/glorytvAdd a comment
|Kevin Harper (top right) with Vinny Shoreman|
So the whole Kickboxing and Muay Thai community around the world is a bit fractured and strange sometimes, but there are always good reasons to come together and bond and right now seems like one of those moments. I was talking earlier with a guy that most of you know pretty well, Vinny Shoreman, formerly the color commentator on It's Showtime and has also done work with K-1, Yokkao, LEGEND, Enfusion and more. Vinny is a guy that has been around the UK Kickboxing and Muay Thai scene and become an important figure and he's looking to do something good for the community, something which I completely support.
You might know the name of Kevin Harper, you might not, it depends on how much you've paid attention to the Kickboxing and Muay Thai scene out there. Harper has been doing some tremendous work over in the UK as a fighter, trainer and promoter, but things haven't been smooth sailing for Harper. Harper and his son, Oliver, have just gone through what has to be one of the worst nightmares imaginable, as Kevin's wife has lost her long battle to cancer. This leaves Kevin in an awful spot and Oliver without a mother, something that no child should have to endure.
Tyrone Spong has already offered up his gloves from his upcoming bout with Nathan Corbett to the highest bidder, with the proceeds going to Kevin.

When it comes to fights that fans are dying to see, GLORY seems dead set on making those big fights happen to not only keep old fans happy, but to show newer fans just how exciting GLORY Kickboxing can be. That is definitely the case when it comes to GLORY 11's big showdown between Tyrone Spong and Nathan Corbett. The two first met in 2009 in Jamaica in a fight that resulted in a No Contest due to some late shots that Corbett fired off after it looked like Spong was done for. In Corbett's mind this is still a KO win for him, but for Spong, there is revenge on his mind.
Corbett very rarely goes outside of Muay Thai rules, as his elbows are two of his best tools in the ring and over the past few years he hasn't ventured very far from the Gold Coast of Australia, but that is all about to change. Corbett will enter the ring at GLORY 11 in Chicago against Tyrone Spong and he sure as hell seems ready to me, what do you think? Check out this interview from GLORY with Corbett.Add a comment
