GLORY 13 is rapidly-approaching, as in, it'll be live in Japan in about 12 hours, which is just insanity. The weigh-ins for GLORY 13 and the GLORY Tokyo SuperFight Series went down when I was sleeping, which makes a whole lot of sense as Japan is across the globe, so here are the weigh-in results. Note that Le Banner hadn't weighed in yet because, well, he's Jerome Le Banner and he tends to come and go as he pleases.
While everyone is pretty certain that Badr Hari will be booked on whatever LEGEND event pops up next, it looks like Badr Hari will be fighting in the Netherlands yet again, this time not under any familiar banner. If that sounds far-fetched to you, as Badr Hari is a top dollar Heavyweight fighter, I share those sentiments, but it appears to be legitimate. On May 17th in the Netherlands Badr Hari is scheduled to meet Ismael Londt in a Kickboxing bout for A1 WCC.
The event is being promoted by the Gunyar Brothers and will also feature a 16-man 70kg tournament. [source]Add a comment
GLORY 13 Tokyo is this weekend, featuring the GLORY Welterweight tournament. The GLORY Welterweight tournament features some of the best and brightest in GLORY's Welterweight division, including Nieky Holzken, Karapet Karapetyan, Raymond Daniels and Joseph Valtellini. I had the pleasure of speaking with Joe on Friday as he was preparing to leave for Japan where we discussed his upcoming fight(s) as well as how it feels to be fighting on yet another card with Kickboxing legends.
I also run down the GLORY 13 and SuperFight Series cards for you because, well, you really care what I think, right? Maybe?
Also, for those who have phones, etc. that don't support flash, here it is on SoundCloud.Add a comment
Yokkao have announced that their next big event -- Yokkao 6 -- will be starting off the year 2014 on January 3rd in Pattaya, Thailand. This will be right after the holidays and is set to feature some big names like Sittichai Sitsonpeenong as well as Thongchai Sitsonpeenong. It should come as no surprise that they'll be promoting the event alongside the Sitsonpeenong Yokkao Training Center, so expect more names from that gym.
We'll have more on Yokkao 6 in the coming weeks, including the fight card and much, much more. Make sure to follow the event on Facebook and Twitter via the hashtag #Yokkao6.Add a comment
Funny how time tends to get away with us, especially during the holiday season, huh? This weekend is a huge weekend for Kickboxing as GLORY will promote GLORY 13 as well as the Tokyo Super Fight Series event. I know that many are disappointed that in the United States we won't get to enjoy GLORY 13 live, as Spike TV will air the event on tape delay on the 21st here in the United States, but the good news is that if you have fond memories of staying up late to watch Japanese kakutougi you'll be able to do just that for the uber-stacked GLORY SuperFight Series card, which begins at 1:30am Eastern time.
Oh yeah, you can watch it here on LiverKick.com, as well as GLORY 13 if you are outside of the US, Japan and ex-YU nations. If you are in the US you won't be able to order GLORY 13, but you can order the SuperFight Series for $20. Not bad, right? If you are planning on ordering both event and worried about costs, don't worry, we've got you covered. Ordering both events here on LiverKick will get you a cool 50% discount off of the second event, which means $30 for both.Add a comment
