Why Enfusion Newcastle Fails To Match GLORY 54 Birmingham

K1ANOOP and British sports journalist, Andreas Georgiou, debate why Enfusion Newcastle fails to match GLORY 54 Birmingham as both global kickboxing promotions return to the UK after approximately, a 5 year hiatus.

This clip is taken from a recent episode of, The K1ANOOP Show which, is a podcast about all things happening in Kickboxing and MMA; and provides an interesting perspective on niche combat sports from a UK perspective and much more.

Enfusion Live 51 results: Iman Barlow wins 100th career fight against Ashley Nichols

Iman Barlow successfully defended her Enfusion Live championship on July 8, 2017 and won her 100th career fight against, Ashley Nichols via split-decision, in the main event of, Enfusion Live 51 in Canada.

In what was a busy five rounds of ‘kickass kickboxing’, both women cranked up the tempo in the fifth and final round in a very even match-up. Nichols the older by six years at 30 years of age, used her every bit of wit and experience to apply a strategic approach that kept Barlow’s high volume of kicking to a minimum for most of the fight which, has been a major challenge for past opponents.

The early rounds would see Nichols coming forward, eating low kicks and punching her way in to close the distance and making the “Pretty Killer” look a lot less dominant compared to, more recent title defences under the Enfusion banner.

According to Enfusion commentator Julie Kitchen, the defending champion had been recently ill leading up-to Enfusion Live 51. However, Barlow’s engine and effort levels didn’t falter under pressure throughout the fight, earning her a split decision victory on Canadian soil.

Props to Ashley Nichols for pushing the champion all the way and after such a close decision, it would be a shame to not see the Canadian fighting again as soon as possible under Enfusion rules (and not risk losing her to MMA).

Iman Barlow: “You have to do what you have to do, to win.”

Iman Barlow successfully defended her Lion Fight championship in dominant fashion against, Meryem Uslu at Lion Fight 34 last week. Prior to flying out to the USA, “Pretty Killer” had guested on the podcast and addressed criticism she had recently received after defending her, 55kg Enfusion world (kickboxing) title against, Ilsury Hendrikse at Enfusion Live 43.

Barlow confirmed that she will rematch Hendrikse on March 4, 2017 at the Assassins Promotions show: ‘A Night of Muay Thai’ in Melton Mowbray, England. However, it was very interesting to hear what Iman had to say about the transition from one rule-set to another; and the impact it has on her decision-making when fighting. As well as the challenges of being adaptable to different rules of combat whilst improving as a fighter and retaining her profile as one of the best female fighters in world kickboxing and Muay Thai.
