Thread: My favourite K-1 & It's Showtime style standup fights

  1. #1

    Default My favourite K-1 & It's Showtime style standup fights

    Not necessarily the best, but some I love, and I advise newer fans to check them all out... some amazing scraps and a few upsets

    Just K-1 and It's Showtime, i.e. no elbows style thai-boxing... Muay Thai is a whole different beast, I'll leave that for another day.

    HWs

    Stefan Leko vs Peter Aerts I
    Stefan Leko vs Peter Aerts II
    Stefan Leko vs Remy Bonjasky I
    Stefan Leko vs Badr Hari I
    Stefan Leko vs Badr Hari II
    Stefan Leko vs Alexey Ignashov I
    Stefan Leko vs Nicholas Pettas
    Stefan Leko vs Mark Hunt I
    Stefan Leko vs Mark Hunt II
    Stefan Leko vs Cyril Abidi
    Stefan Leko vs Melvin Manhoef
    Melvin Manhoef vs Ruslan Karaev
    Melvin Manhoef vs Remy Bonjasky I
    Melvin Manhoef vs Denes Racz
    Melvin Manhoef vs ANYONE!
    Mark Hunt vs Ray Sefo
    Mark Hunt vs Jerome LeBanner I
    Mark Hunt vs Mirko Filipovic
    Mirko Filipovic vs Musashi
    Mirko Filipovic vs Remy Bonjasky
    Mirko Filipovic vs Ernesto Hoost II
    Ernesto Hoost vs Jerome LeBanner I
    Ernesto Hoost vs Jerome LeBanner II
    Ernesto Hoost vs Bob Sapp I
    Ernesto Hoost vs Bob Sapp II

    Alistair Overeem vs Badr Hari I
    Semmy Schilt vs Badr Hari I
    Semmy Schilt vs Badr Hari II
    Semmy Schilt vs Peter Aerts III
    Jerome LeBanner vs Cyril Abidi
    Ray Sefo vs Andy Hug II
    Gokhan Saki vs Daniel Ghita
    Badr Hari vs Ruslan Karaev II


    K-1 MAX / < middleweight

    Masato vs Buakaw I
    Masato vs Buakaw II
    Masato vs Souwer
    Zambidis vs Chahid
    Kid vs Masato


    *Anything from K-1 MAX is amazing, but I had to single those five out as favourites that I still watch every now and again

    *Anything with prime JLB, prime Leko, Manhoef, Hari, Hunt etc is generally destined to be a quality, exciting HW fight

    Badr Hari vs Peter Graham deserves a spot on any such list That knockout was one for the ages, and Badr got his reward for talking shit.

    lol, Rolling Thunder was epic.
    Maybe, but I've got a few Badr KO losses in there, and seeing as I'm the only one on my own board that dislikes the Bad Boy, I thought I'd limit it to just a couple

    Like I say though, the above are my favourites off the top of my head. If it was a definitive list, I'd have a hell of a lot more MAX fights on there, and I'd have included true Muay Thai as well, not just the "elbowless offshoots" of Japan and Holland

    Yeah, I realised that, but since it's pretty much my favorite KO of all time, I just had to mention it.

    OK, well on that note:

    Leko vs Hari I
    Graham vs Hari I
    Semmy vs Hari II

    All great KO's imo 8)

    In terms of Muay Thai, anything involving Saenchai Sor Kingstar is a must.

    Saenchai vs Liam Harrison was good

    Also:

    Dekkers vs Namphon II
    Dekkers vs Orona I
    Dekkers vs Ballantine I
    Dekkers vs Simpson

    Also

    Rob Kaman vs Hoost I
    Rob Kaman vs Ignashov
    Rob Kaman vs Pietrowski


    As well as all the countless fights from the Lumpini that have made it online, one way or another

    All quality fights, although my fav is Dekkers v Orono. Dekkera is a legend. My favourite ever fighter; never in a dull fight.
