Superkombat worldgrand prix - Almere, Netherlands


For the first time ever, Superkombat® is taking the World Grand Prix series to the Netherlands. On September 27th, it's taking the action to Almere, the home of kickboxing legend and three-time K-1® world champion Remy Bonjasky, with the full setup of Superkombat® event production, from lights to ring girls or sound effects. The main event of the night will see Catalin "The Carpathian Death" Morosanu taking on the Netherland's own Brian "Bad Ass" Douwes in the final super fight of the evening.

Coming off a show-stopping victory over Giannis "Hercules" Stoforidis in Constanta, Romania earlier this month, Morosanu wants to keep the momentum going in the first World Grand Prix event to take place in the Netherlands. The Romanian politician and winner of Dancing with the Stars is taking on Brian "Bad Ass" Douwes. The Dutch fighter is just as determined to score a solid win in his home country, especially with Dutch kickboxing legend Remy Bojansky looking on. Bojansky was at the last Superkombat World Grand Prix to promote the upcoming event in his home town.

Following grueling tryouts earlier this summer, the fight card is also set for the other matches on September 27th. The first two bouts will each be a semifinal to decide the fighters who will go in the final heavyweight match of the evening, the last step before the Final Elimination event, scheduled on October 25th. In the first semifinal match, Tarik Khbabez from Morocco, will face off against Gurhan Degermenci from Turkey. The second semifinal match will pit the Dutch fighter Patrick Veenstra against Viktor Bugotzki from Germany. The two winners of the semifinal matches will face off in the final match of the evening and close the tournament.

In what might be another first of the evening, Suriname's Redouan "The Spartan" Cairo, the finalist of the 2013 Superkombat World Grand Prix season, will face the former Superkombat® Super Cruiserweight contender Ali "Tornado" Cenik of Belgium. Both fighters are based in the Netherlands and both want the top spot this season.

Reigning Superkombat New Heroes champion, Clyde Brunswijk is leaving the light heavyweight division and trying his hand as a cruiserweight. He will meet Armenia's Hovik Tikranjan for his chance at making a successful weightclass jump..

Not top class event, but it shouldn't go unnoticed.

Maybe an upcoming star here? At least some 'bad ass' nicknames ;)

@Kim Maybe. Redouan Cairo beat Stoica and Sebastian Cobanu. Maybe he can surprise us.

It will be fun to watch, especially that Glory has not announced any new event.

h ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwmvYo2QfxM (Brunswijk of Suriname is a beast at only 21, he beat The Professor in Greece)
h ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaBK5Z6Mkns (Tarik Khbabez dominating the current Enfusion champion, Lazaar)
h ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLLj2dGgohQ (Cristian Spetcu, I hope he returns ambitious because SK awarded wrongly the decision in his last fight, against a very young and talented Dutch youngster though)

Very young, interesting prospects. Veenstra and Soesie are also quite skilful. Cairo a veteran who is very solid when he is motivated (at 209 lbs). Adriaansz beat Sikking when he was under Harinck at Chakuriki but I think he is better on MT rules.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. 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.
