Sergei Laschenko Murdered in Ukraine

taken from Liverkick.com

K-1, SuperKombat and It's Showtime veteran Sergei Laschenko was pronounced dead on April 8th at the Odessa Jewish Hospital in the Ukraine after being shot multiple times, one of the shots hitting his carotid artery. Laschenko is survived by his wife and 18-month old child.

Sergei Laschenko was a very popular Heavyweight kickboxer who trained under some of the best in the world, including Thom Harinck and Mike Passenier. For a period of time Laschenko was without a doubt one of the top ten Heavyweights in the world, which at the time of having such legendary names as Schilt, Aerts, Le Banner, Hari, Ghita and others active it was truly an important accomplishment. In 2011 he won the SuperKombat World Grand Prix and in 2014 he won the KOK World Grand Prix.

There were ups and downs in his career, but Laschenko was truly one of the more memorable Heavyweight stars over the past ten years and his loss will be felt across the kickboxing community.

What? Did it had something to do with war in Ukraine or is it some gangster crap again? He did have some scars which appeared like they were made by knife stab.

@stark Never seen these scars ...
Don't know for sure, but it seems to me it has nothing to do with that war; so more like a gangster thing.

Anyway, a very sad thing!

@D-rop Try watching his fights. You can see those scars when he moves. They were on his stomach.
I remember when I first saw him fight. It was K1 European grand prix in Lodz in Poland back in 2009. Day before that he fought in Lithuania in world muaythai championship and won. He drove all night to get to Poland and he lost in finals to Samedov. He got KOd by lowkicks. It was amazing how much beating his legs could take.

Yes, I remember that ... it was amazing. I remember that I said something like 'from now on, he is my hero' here on this site.

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.
