Damn, he is good! Giorgio has got it all. The jab, the bodyblows, the lowkicks, knees, evasions, reach, speed, combinations. I am blown away! What a fighter.

Hard knees! A match-up against Kyshenko is indeed great!
Yet somehow I'm not getting that excited over him yet. Maybe it's because he won a lot of his fights on countertactics and while moving backwards. I know it's an art on its own, but I prefer it if they bring the fight to their opponent.
But I'll bet I'll start to love him in the near future haha

I must say, Petrosyan's clear victory over Askerov has been a surprise to me! I hadn't thought the difference between these fighters would be so overwhelming, so evident. Askerov, usually an aggressive, competitive, bold fighter with great fighting spirit, looked almost as disipated against over-active, acurate, clever Petrosyan. This makes quite a point in Petrosyan's career and really makes this fight one of the main in the evening!

Great eye, timing and footwork by Petrosyan - just forgot how much I liked this guy´s fightingstyle. A pure pleasure!

Will be interesting to see how he will do against top K-1 strikers as Souwer and Kraus, hell even Kyshenko. I think those great knees and kicks can be a real threat ;-)

I think Askerov's typical high guard is related to a strong confidence on his real solid midsection, but also has it flaws, as now becomes apparent

Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
