    I suppose this year the World Grand Prix will be reserved to the light-heavyweights, and not the heavyweights. I think there will be a final pyramide with Dawid Kasperski and 3 more.

    This tournament on May 24 looks very interesting and I think the winner between Vidovic and Simson will win it. For those who don"t know, Miljan Vidovic is the current WAKO world champion and Miles Simson is another Surinamese prospect (I watched him winning against Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn in Slamm on Muaythai rules and looked very good; that Thai lost only by decision after five rounds to Askerov and is solid enough). All are very young including the previous winner from Poland. In the other semifinal, Jamie Bates currently ranked number 1 in Great Britain (he"s interesting too) takes on Flavius Boiciuc, a tough Romanian though he"s pretty smilar to previous Șchiopu (I don"t think he can provide in this moment, they both must keep developing).

    Sebastian Ciobanu will fight against the current WKN Muaythai world champion Corentin Jallon and finally returns in his weight class, the cruiserweight one. I"m following the 3 black fighters on the card: Corentin Jallon, Miles Simson and Aristote Quitusisa (Quitusisa, Frenchman of Angolan origins and WKA world champion, will fight the WAKO European champion Daniel Alexandru; this is a pretty competitive fight, Alexandru was in good form in KOK) to see if they are potential future new heroes, and even Jamie Bates. And I hope that Vidovic wins the tournament, if not Simson. Vidovic did very well in the Superkombat New Heroes and earned a spot in the Superkombat World Grand Prix.

    And I hope Paraschiv, Ristea and Hurduc who are now heavily promoted will win.

    The promotion will stay at the Romanian seaside for this summer, promoting the Black Sea towns (Andrei Stoica will be on next event"s card defending his title). Then it will move to the Netherlands I think and possibly England.

    Ciobanu, Ristea (22), Paraschiv (21), Hurduc (23) and Vidovic (23) are on the poster (the last four are the new faces of the promotion). Ciobanu is back in the cruiserweight after so many years. He used to be much better there.

    I don't understand why they call it a WGP when it's clearly a local/regional promotion

    Because there are fighters from three continents. New Heroes is feeding the World Grand Prix, so this is the next step. It doesn"t matter Superkombat is not bringing everytime kickboxers with huge name, because somebody must promote new talent also. The previous winner, Dawid Kasperski of Poland, is only 23 years old. Then a pyramide will probably be organized, with 4 light heavyweights (all winners of the qualifying WGPs). Usually SK called the 4 World Grand Prix events before the Final Elimination, qualifying.

    You don"t know a big part of them because they work with WAKO amateur more than WAKO pro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVrUNiawSH4

    Paraschiv, Hurduc and Vidovic were WAKO amateurs with brilliant achievements there.

    And anyway, World Grand Prix is a system of tournaments. Mainly that"s why. You can"t call it Superkombat winner, when you also have championships. Superkombat WGP winner (Lascenko, Zhuravlev, Mu

    To clarify Jamie Bates is not no1 ranked in the uk under K1/Glory rules and i doubt even under US kickboxing rules...good luck to him and Micky Terril though!

    True, but he"s usually a cruiserweight (91-92 kg), not an 85 kilos. I watched him on American rules and I liked him. I suppose he holds the titles in US kickboxing.

    Terrill was stopped by Romy Da Silva (who lost to Ristea but gave him a hell of a fight in third round), so I don"t think he will do so well. But of course he has the puncher"s chance. Hurduc is an aggressor, he should be able to stop Micky. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akuOreeXSNo & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jA4152en0hM

    Is Wakeling the best p4p in Great Britain? Also Watson is solid.

    By the way, Andrew Tate isn"t American? Or which Tate?

    Terril is apparantly much improved since the Romy fight but we will see!?
    Wakeling is certainly one of the best fighters to come out of the UK its a shame things seem to have gone quiet for him with Glory!
    Tates father is American i believe but Andrew grew up, lives and has always trained here.

    Maybe. But I think it passed only one year.

    I watched Tate in Enfusion, Wakeling would stop him. Though Wakeling didn"t deserve a draw against Levin and Eddie Walker is not a good opponent, he"s a serious kickboxer and would pressure him because Tate is no Levin. I believe your best p4p is Wakeling, and your second one Watson. Jordan is solid and could be maximum a contender but not a champion. In some promotions Wakeling could be a champion. I don"t know if in Glory. Probably not because at least Levin is better but he could have been in this tournament. I agree. Schilling lost to Walker. :) Tate has qualities and I respect his work but I"m not impressed with him.

    Yes, Romanian language commentary good quality: http://www.hahabar.com/20140524/v--8....47807947.html.

    And Eurosport International English commentary of Will Vanders, a bit worse but still good:

    http://www.hahabar.com/20140524/v--8....74041212.html.

    Try the my second link, the English one! And the first one only if it stops. Eurosport have no stupid commercials.

    Or in German: http://www.stream2watch.me/live-tv/eurosport-live-stream.
