SuperKombat 8-men Tournament on Nov. 17th

from Liverkick.com, written by Rian Scalia

SuperKombat is set to hold two events this week, one on Thursday in Oradea, Romania and one on Saturday in Darmstadt, Germany. Both cards look really good and feature some many familiar names. The card on Thursday is a SuperKombat Fight Club card. It features a one night, eight man heavyweight tournament and two super fights.


Among the participants in the heavyweight tournament are K-1 veterans Errol Zimmerman, Ben Edwards and Stefan Leko. What I find interesting about this tournament is that along with a few K-1 veterans that everyone knows, there are some fighters in it that are rather under the radar. It should be interesting to see if any of these fighters such as Daniel Sam, Christian Colombo and Slavo Puglic can have some success. It's always great to hear of new talent in the heavyweight division, which has a rather shallow talent pool.It's unclear right now as to which fight is the reserve match. I'd speculate that Stefan Leko vs. Tsotne Rogava is.

It's Showtime World Heavyweight Champion and one of the top heavyweights in the world, Hesdy Gerges returns to action in a pretty decent fight against Rico Verhoeven. Hesdy and Rico are on this card due to the cancellation of the K-1 Final 16 and things turned out perfectly for them to fight. Hesdy is no doubt the favorite here, but it'll say a lot how he does against Verhoeven.

Full card below. The event will be broadcast live on Eurosport.

Tournament (8 men + 1 reserve match)
Stefan Leko (GER) v Tsotne Rogava (UKR))
Slavo Plugic (SVN) v Coco Rus (ROM)
Christian Colombo (DEN) v Roman Kleibl (CZE)
Daniel Sam (ENG) v Ben Edwards (AUS)
Sebastian van Thielen (BEL) v Errol Zimmerman (HOL)

Neil Cooke (USA) v Alexandru Lungu (ROM)
Rico Verhoeven (HOL) v Hesdy Gerges (EGY)



Singh Jaideep replaced Daniel Sam and another superfight was added to this fight-card: Alex Trofimov (Israel) vs Costel Pasniciuc (Romania).

Watched it live: great tournament, nice KOs. I mean some veeeery nice KOs. Ben Edwards vs Roman Kleibl - a war that I have rarely seen even in highest level kickboxing.

Erojiman is the tournament winner by a nice shin to the jaw-neck KO over Kleibl.

The superfight Rico vs Hesdy was a shitty one, a lot of hugging.

Kleibl surprised me also. I was sure that Edwards will take the tournament, Zimmerman was only second, and with him you never know. Good tournament!

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.
