Can the rise of the new fighters compensate the aging and leaving process of the old ones?

I'm going with HMC to beat Sefo and Slowinski to beat Manhoef in the reserves. I'm thinking JLB could take it this year, he was very unlucky last year with that leg injury but if he's been training hard he's one hell of a fighter. Although I haven't saw the 4 new fighters in action yet i'll need to check them out.

Mmmmaybe, I mean there aren't TOO many new/great fighters. The only super outstanding one is Hari, other than him, maybe Zimmerman, or Karaev, but that's it.

I refuse to acknowledge Taxeira!

I am rooting for Aerts because he is my favorite kickboxer. I hate Hari so much, but he is good and Peter has an extremely tough road (so does everyone else) to become the champion. If Aerts headkick KOs Hari I might be the happiest I've ever been.

If you hate Hari that much you should watch his first fight with Peter Graham or you may have seen it already. Its all about the rolling thunder!!

Lol, some kind words from Remy.

Quote:
Dutch kickboxer Remy Bonjasky is aiming for his third championship at the "FieLDS K-1 WORLD GP 2008 FINAL." A major showdown awaits this "Flying Gentleman" in his quarterfinal bout with Jerome Le Banner.


I am in a good shape after putting some weight

-- You had a tough fight against Paul Slowinski at the FINAL 16.

Bojasky : I was not satisfied with that fight. With my power and technique, I should have knocked him out in the first round.

-- What do you think was the reason you could not knock him out?

Bojasky : To tell you the truth, I was sick from two weeks before the fight. I felt nauseous even right before the fight. However, looking back, I saw that I won the fight clearly even though the result was close, by decision.

-- It seems that you are returning to your old form. Fans would like to see your exciting knockouts again.

Bojasky : That is what I really wanted to give people. I wanted to show a beautiful knockout. I trained hard for several month before the fight and I felt good and ready for the fight. However, I got sick, and it was really unfortunate that I could not maintain my good condition.

-- Your body weight is now 114kg, up from around 105kg..

Bojasky : I gained weight intentionally. I am heavier but my speed and jumping skills have not changed at all.

-- At the K-1 World GP drawing, you selected the fourth bout. Can you tell us the reason?

Bojasky : Actually, it was a miscommunication with my trainer. He said to choose Ruslan Karaev, Gokhan Saki, or Ewerton Teixeira. Yet, I could not hear him well because of the noise. I thought he said do not go to Ruslan Karaev, so I went to the open space.

-- Why did you choose the fourth match instead of the first match?

Bojasky : When you choose the first match, you can have more time to recover after the fight. On the other hand, by fighting in the fourth match, you stay warmed up and ready to proceed to the next round.



I will do my best against Jerome's power

-- If you had the choice out of the seven other fighters, is there anybody in particular you would have chosen?

Bojasky : Well, it is a tournament. It is not to show how strong but how smart you are. I think any smart guy would choose the weakest fighter as his first opponent.

-- Indeed, your first opponent is Jerome LeBanner.

Bojasky : I would welcome anybody. I fought against Jerome before, and that time, I thought I won. However, the decision was made in his favor. I will definitely win this time.

-- Are you going to win against Jerome by a knockout?

Bojasky : I think Jerome will only try to win against me. When we were standing next each other at the drawing, he told me that he will concentrate on winning against me. I don't think he knows if he can proceed to the next round. He said "I might stop fighting next year." Therefore, I think he will come only focused on winning against me.

-- Do you think you can finish him off the end and he might have to retire?

Bojasky : Well, I can help him going to retire (laughs). But, Jerome has been in K-1 since I know K-1. He has been always one of the top-eight fighters. He is a strong fighter and he is good. I have to work hard for the upcoming two months to get in good shape and get ready.

-- Don't you think that it will be hard for you to advance to the next round if Jerome gives his all against you?

Bojasky : I think it is going to be a tough fight. If I can knock him out in the first round, it would be easier for my next fight. Yet, he is going to bring everything against me. I will do my best, too. I hope to knock him out very quickly, otherwise, it will be a really tough day.



If there is God, I am 99% sure that I can win

-- How confident are you of a win against Jerome?

Bojasky : I believe that there is a chance for me to win the fight. I hope God will smile on my side.

-- You have a girlfriend which is another God for you.

Bojasky : Yes! She is the other God that smiles on me no matter what happens to me.

-- Well, that is good for you. Do you think you can be the champion this year?

Bojasky : I've got a very good chance to win.

-- How confident are you?

Bojasky : I feel confidence of around 99%.

-- Almost 100%!

Bojasky : Well, almost. I wish for another 1% of pure luck from God.

-- Semmy Schilt, who has been a champion for quite a while, lost this time. Do you think that will give you better luck?

Bojasky : He has been a champion, but he has been unable to successfully appeal to fans. He doesn't look like a champion or talk like a champion. People say that his style of fighting is not attractive. The tournament will be fresh and open this time. Who will be the most suitable as a champion? Well, it might be me because I'm good looking(laughs).

Opening ceremony fights added.

Interview with Errol

Quote:
Errol Zimmerman upset veteran Glaube Feitosa at the K-1 World GP 2008 Final 16 to establish himself as one of K-1's rising stars. The 22 year-old young boy, nicknamed "Bone Crusher" will face Ewerton Teixeira at the K-1 WGP 2008 Final.

My ring entrance music should be longer!

-- You made quite an impact with your ring entrance at the WGP Final 16!

Zimmerman : I wanted to excite the crowd, I wanted people in Korea and Japan to remember me as the "Bone Crusher". They know my aggressive fighting style. And I wanted to also create a strong personal image.

-- Not many people would wear a skeleton body suit and mask...

Zimmerman : I thought about it with my teammates and we came up with the idea of a "bone crusher" body suit.

-- And a live rapper! However, the music finished before you reached the ring.

Zimmerman : The rapper was told he had only two minutes, then the music suddenly stopped, I feel sorry for him. But no problem, I'll reconsider the length of the music for next time.

-- You were pretty sweaty when you got out of the suit.

Zimmerman : Not a problem but I am also thinking of maybe changing to a different suit with more ventilation...

If you want to see a KO, just watch my fight!

-- How do you feel about your win against Feitosa?

Zimmerman : I'm satisfied I kept beating him up through the entire three rounds. It was only in the last 30 seconds that he gave me some punches and kicks. Yet, I felt nothing. To prove that, you see how my face was still pretty, yet his face was badly swollen! I think after the fight he couldn't sleep, because he regretted fighting on for three rounds, when he should have just stopped in the first round.

-- In the draw for the Final, you avoided Remy Bonjasky and Ruslan Karaev. Any reason for that?

Zimmerman : I talked to Gokhan Saki at the drawing and he said he wanted to fight Ruslan or LeBanner. So I went to the other side to let someone to pick me, and it was and Teixeira.

-- What is your impression of him?

Zimmerman : He's aggressive and has power. I'm glad I'm going to fight him.

-- Maybe he chose you to revenge Glaube, because they are in the same team?

Zimmerman : It doesn't matter to me why he chose me. I'm only waiting for the moment to knock him out!
My fight at the Final will be the most interesting fight of all. If you want to see a KO, just wait for the "Bone Crusher"!

I'm the most handsome!

-- Whom would you choose if you could fight anybody among the seven finalists?

Zimmerman : It would be Jerome LeBanner. He has good experience in K-1, so I could prove how tough I am by winning. Since his fight style is very aggressive, we could make a very exiting match. I believe I would rise to the next level after beating him up.

-- Out with the old, and in with the new?

Zimmerman : For sure! That's my duty -- I would love to beat the old guys. I'll warn them not to choose me because I'll hurt them! I am a dangerous fighter (laughs).

-- By the way, Saki boasted he is the prettiest among the best-eight fighters, and said you are the ugliest. Anything to say about that?

Zimmerman : No way, I am the coolest! Well, I will beat up Saki on my way to the Championship.

-- You are confident of winning the Final?

Zimmerman : Of course it will be me. I'm going for the WGP Championship as well as the Heavyweight Title Belt. I am not going to let Badr [Hari] take the two championships before I do!
