Filed under: , ,

Badr Hari had no trouble at all in defeating Alexey Ignashov by unanimous decision at the K-1 World Grand Prix in Yokohama 2010, as K-1’s best knockout artist was patient and content to out-point the defensive-minded Ignashov.

Hari came out swinging in the first round, but Ignashov showed off some very good head movement, as no matter how powerful the punches Hari threw, Ignashov managed to avoid them. At the end of the first round a Hari flurry appeared to have Ignashov in trouble against the ropes, but Hari didn’t have time to finish his assault. All three judges scored the first round 10-9 for Hari.

The knockout blow was a right knee to the jaw, but it was preceded by some good technical boxing on Overeem’s part. The much smaller Poturak landed a few punches that didn’t do any damage, while Overeem landed powerful punches throughout the first round, including a right hook that knocked Poturak down.

The K-1 heavyweight title has largely been a belt that didn’t mean anything since Keijiro Maeda, the Japanese fighter better known as Kyotaro, won it a year ago. But it means a lot now that Kyotaro beat Peter Aerts at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Yokohama.

It was the biggest win over Kyotaro’s career, and a tremendous display of technical and powerful kickboxing in beating Aerts, a legend who’s clearly past his prime.
