hey so if anybody remembers that story about Shemsi Beqiri having to pull out of a fight for Glory earlier this year because of being beaten in his gym by masked men with baseball bats, the story is a bit more complicated

the masked men were with his former trainer, they stormed his gym and held a class hostage, including holding his brother at gunpoint, to force Beqiri to fight his former trainer, and when Beqiri started to win everybody jumped on him, and weirdly enough there's a video of it thanks to Swiss news

Kickboxing is the best

quote:

European kickboxing champion Alexander Bolshakov, who holds a 22-0-1 record as a professional, appears to have been brought to justice after it was discovered that he ran a drug smuggling gang that attempted the transportation and sale of narcotics from Latin America.

According to Russian website MMABoxing.ru, the kickboxer and his entire gang were accused of attempting to smuggle and distribute 72 kg of narcotics from the Uruguayan capital city of Montevideo. Apart from 12 kg of cocaine, the Federal Drug Control Service found an additional 60 kg of narcotics including hashish.

It appears that Bolshakov is the leader of the gang, which was revealed when members of his crew were detained in the St Petersburg airport and that ultimately led to his arrest shortly thereafter.

Wow, talk about gym drama! I'm no good at German, but apparently after the fight the TV crew has a security guy who knows Krav Maga comment on the fight. Can anyone able give a rough translation of what he says?

Not quite the 20 year deal I was hoping for, but at least there's another year of kickboxing on free tv in the US.

In totally irrelevant news for the few kickboxing fans who know about basketball, Darko Milicic claims he's retiring from MMA to try to be a pro kickboxer. I wish Japan still had kickboxing orgs with money because somewhere out there there's a yakuza guy salivating over all the good freakshows he could put a seven foot tall basketball player in.

It isn't? Is this something that has been going on gradually the past few months or did something suddenly happen in last few days?
I pretty much rely on this thread to keep me informed so I don't know. Until now, I'd have pegged Glory as "stable condition".

If the guys are leaving is there a place they are going to or has kickboxing reverted back to it's natural state of being a wasteland?

Triticum Guzzler

i'm pretty sure glory will continue to run shows in america and probably europe but don't expect to see any of the guys getting paid hundreds of thousands like petrosyan, spong, saki, or any of the old timers they might still have around

this has been brewing for a while and they've been off tv for ages. i don't know if it necessarily points to the death of the company because there's still about 800 suits squeezing money out of it, and they just replaced an executive (while retaining the other as a consultant, thanks for the cash hedge fund guy)

Yea I was wondering what happened to Glory. Every event was good, the tv numbers were good, and I think they were making good money off gates (including in the US?) Then I didn't here anything for ages. Really weird and a shame. So glory's demise in spite of all the promise can be chalked up to dumb contracts and kickboxing being run by inept criminals?

it's a bit early to talk about their demise as they're still planning and running shows and still got renewed by spike. petrosyan, saki, and spong may have gotten a few articles on mma websites but they do jack poo poo for an american tv audience. it's possible they'll scrape by on tv.

also the k-1 branded krush are running a tournament soon with some good fighters (including raj sarkeesjan who beat noiri) but are apparently refusing to speak to the chinese part of the company lol

Hahahaha this owns. Those of you who watched the last Koshien tournament might remember that in the middle of a bunch of Japanese high schoolers beating each other up there was a blindingly white guy called Minoru Kimura. Not like a really pale Japanese guy, just a regular white guy.

He was jokingly referred to here as Minoru "Steve" Kimura, and now he's Literally being billed as Minoru "Phillip" Kimura. Also he looks like Rory MacDonald fulfilling his autistic potential:
