No Holds Barred: Bas Boon on the Changing State of Kickboxing 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Bas Boon, the president of Glory Sports.

It was just announced that Glory Sports International has acquired its now-former competitor in the sport of kickboxing, the Dutch-based 'It's Showtime' organization.

We spoke with Bas Boon by Skype Monday about this historic agreement which, according to the announcement of this deal, "will effectively place all of the world's top kickboxers, or stand-up fighters, under the same promotional umbrella."

Speaking about the potential for kickboxing to grow on a worldwide bases, Bas Boon said in this interview, "My honest opinion is that it can become a lot bigger than MMA." He said this was especially so for the lower weight classes and in Asia, where there are already many good kickboxers and fewer fighters in MMA than in other regions. He added, "You have these good fighters, but you also have a structure and people behind it who are visionary who can see how this sport should be brought to a wider audience."

We also discussed some of the problems which have plagued kickboxing such as the demise of the old K-1 and the reported problems facing the new K-1, the situation with former Golden Glory fighter Alistair Overeem, the need for "clean people" to run kickboxing, the plans for Glory Sports running shows in the near future, which fighters are on the roster of the new combined company, and much more.

No Holds Barred: Kenny Garner, the New Emperor 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the new M-1 Global heavyweight champion, Kenny "Deuce" Garner.

On June 21, on the M-1 Global card in St. Petersburg, Russia, Kenny captured that title with a convincing third-round TKO over the previously-unbeaten champion, Guram Gugenishvili.

We spoke with the always-quotable Kenny "Deuce" Garner by phone Sunday night.

During our interview, he said that winning this title, along with the retirement of the great Fedor Emelianenko, "makes me the new emperor of Russia."

Now based in Florida and training at American Top Team, he explained why he was able to defeat Guram in this rematch after dropping their first fight in 2010. We discussed how his training at American Top Team has improved his technique both in striking and grappling, his string of three victories in three MMA title fights in 49 days, his speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin right after his last fight, when he expects to fight next, and more.
