Alexey "Red Scorpion" Ignashov (born January 18, 1978) is a Super Heavyweight Belarusian kickboxer. Ignashov is one of the superstars of K-1. He is considered as one of the most talented, yet most inconsistent fighter in the game.


He is best known for his knee strikes, notably used to score knockout wins over Nicolas Pettas and Carter Williams. Ignashov is considered by his fans to be one of the most talented and technically sound heavyweight kickboxers in the world.

However, he is also considered by many frustratingly inconsistent, occasionally appearing lackluster or inactive in the ring, such as in his K-1 Final quarterfinal match against Peter Aerts in 2003. He suffered a knee injury in a fight against Bjorn Bregy in 2005. Since then, his performance has diminished.

Ignashov was trained in a Muay Thai background with the Chinuk gym in Belarus, but has also branched out and trained in locales such as New Zealand and Japan.

Ignashov is considered to be an exceptionally technical kickboxer. His fans cite his technical style, beautiful knockouts, and calm demeanor in the ring among the reasons they enjoy watching his fights.

I guess that he means that Alexei is always so calm and nice that one wouldn't expect that he that much of a killer in the ring.
Don't wanna speak for him....that's just what I think of Ignashow.

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.
