Pavlos Kaponis is ready, hungry and looking for blood.

“John Wayne Parr is famous not only in Australia, but also all around the world and this is respectful,” says Pavlos, starting out with a congenial foot forward. “In Greece, we know him very good from the fight that has given with Mike Zambidis. Especially from the last one that Zambidis lost by KO. However, these fights were K1 [rules].” Continue reading

So, what’s been going on since we spoke last ?

Since the last interview, I’ve had 2 fights. The first was in Bangkok at the IFMA 2015 Royal World Cup. I drew a Russian, Nadir Ishakov. A very lanky southpaw – your typical nightmare fight. He was about a foot taller; it was horrible! Continue reading

The first point of contact for the elusive Ghot Seurnoi is his trainer, Soren Mongkontong. When we spoke, I explained that I had made an appointment to interview Ghot at ten thirty the following morning.

“Don’t be silly, mate. There’s no way he’ll be awake. He’ll have been up all night on his PlayStation.” Continue reading

Giorgio Petrosyan is that great rarity in fightsports: he boasts an almost unblemished record of eighty fights for seventy-six wins. Interestingly, only one of those unsuccessful ventures is recorded as a loss. There are a handful of other fighters who can lay claim to near-perfect records, but their resumes are a patchwork of second-tier opponents and greats past their prime. Not so with Petrosyan; he has fought – and defeated – all of the best fighters in the world today in contests spread across all of the premier ‘kickboxing’ organizations. Necessarily, his career has sustained many ups and downs outside of the ring.   Continue reading

Nathan ‘Carnage’ Corbett has recently signed to the Glory World Series with his first designated opponent being Tyrone Spong. Spong is widely considered to be the best fighter at his weight in the world. This was also the case when Nathan knocked him into the middle of next week back in 2009. Spong has gone on to distinguished showings in K1 and the Glory World Series, while Nathan has remained undefeated since last they met.

Trainer extraordinaire Richard Walsh gives us the low-down on what’s to come.  Continue reading
