Tyrone Spong

I was talking to some friends and I mentioned Spong to the and they had no idea who he was (these are the guys I talk K-1 with too). This suprised me so I thought I would post this up in case anyone else had not heard of him. Here are the stats:


Tyrone Spong



Full name: Tyrone Clinton Spong
Nickname: King of the Ring
Nationality: Dutch
Date of birth: September 3, 1985 (1985-09-03) (age 22)
Place of birth: Paramaribo, Suriname
Fighting out of: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Height: 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in)
Weight: 86 kg (189.6 lb/13.5 st)
Style: Muay Thai
Team Fighting: Factory Carbin
Trainer: Lucien Carbin
Years active: 6 (2002-present)


Kickboxing record:

Total: 83
Wins: 79
By knockout: 56
Losses: 3
By knockout: 2
Draws: 1

Here is a highlight video of him:

Here are some of his fights:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmtja4_nF4Y
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX_pXJXW4Lo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi2UnlDUr2Y
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRymIY224_s
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyLZvaFTCOk This was at the last K-1 event in Amsterdam

And if you need further proof on how good Spong is know this, he is the guy that Fedor (yes you read that right) brought in too train for Cro Cop. Starts showing their training around the 2:25 mark.

He won his last fight against Senol Kiziltas on 5/31/08 at a Beast of the East event. I couldn't find a video of it but I will keep looking and add it if I do (or if you look for it you can post it as well). By all means look for more of his fights as this is only a mere sample of what this guy has done.

Spong is really solid. I think he could have a bright future ahead of him. I think people realized that he was something serious when he took out Kaoklai.

Hopefully his appearance in K-1 this year will help him get some recognition.

I didn't realize that Spong trained Fedor for the CC fight. That really does say something.

He also came to the states and trained with Floyd Mayweather Sr and he thinks Spong could be a boxing champ. He has and still is gaining quite a bit of weight to fight in K-1 but it hasn't seemed to affect him.

cruising through k-1 and saw this. What about him talking trash and challenging nathan corbett, but as soon as nathan asks for full MT rules he sure shuts up about it asking for k-1 rules. Fears nathans elbows of death

They were in the process of setting up a fight but Corbett said he had too many fights lined up so he couldn't do it.

Corbett should putt his money where his mouth is—he’s talking about tearing me apart, well where was he this 9th of Feb.?? And who the f**k do you think you are Corbett with all your demands?? You want to fight or not?? Talking that I have to come to Australia and you want to make the rules of the fight and you have some fights coming up; so after you have your fights then you want to fight? I just travelled 36 hours now it’s your turn. Why don’t you come over and fight in the Amsterdam arena; your more than welcome and it’s been offered to you two times already to fight me in the arena-- why isn’t the deal ready?? So get your bi**h ass over or shut up and put your tale between your legs and don’t say nothing ok!! Maybe I have to remind you, your just “carnage” and I am the king. This is the last thing I have to say to you Mr. Corbett you’re’ not that important to me ok! So don’t bother to come back with other comments or something like what you said, because I won’t reply: it isn’t a talk show. Just sign the contract for the arena this 26 of April. I won’t go any where-- I will be waiting for you. Like you people say- bring it on
corbett had an event on the 26th of april, evolution 13

its a fight id really want to see tbh

He could of cancelled and mde more money and get more recognition fighting Spong. Hasn't Spong been asking for a k-1 style match all a long and Corbett wants Muay thai rules?
