    Zambidis vs. Buakaw 4th FEB Predictions?

    Well watching the highlight Ikken posted just reminded me that Buakaw and Zambidis are fighting in a couple of days. So do what people think is going to happen?

    The new (silly) clinch rules are going to make this a harder fight for Buakaw but personally I still think he's going to win this one possibly on points though and presuming he doesn't get caught cleanly early on with one of Zambidis' power hooks. Place your bets now :).

    zambidis can never be counted out of any fight because of his insane power. i dont think there is anyone in the k-1 max division that he couldnt knock out with on really clean hook or overhand (like what he did to KID)

    if it goes the distance im betting buakaw though, he has better stamina and work rate. I cant see buakaw knockimg zambidis out, especially not now they gimped his clinch.

    I'm gonna have to stick with Buakaw on this one.

    I was at Jocky Gym in Bangkok recently and I got watch Buakaw work the pads and the bags... he's got insane power himself... his technique is brilliant... I shot him from the ring apron while he was working the pads... and he was hitting them soooo loud that my ears were literally ringing!!!! :eek:

    Either way it's looks to be a good match.

    Buakaw definitely will have the reach on Zambidis but... if Zambidis get's inside Buakaw could have some hurtin' layed on him... as Ikken saliently pointed out... his match against Kid show's that his punches are heavy enough to put people to sleep. :eek: He a hard and handy nut so I think we can expect him to crowd Buakaw and look for an opening to get inside and unleash a flurry of fisty combos. :D

    I don't really have a lot of respect for the Japanese judges... they're known for some incredibly **** poor decisions. So I don't hold out hope that they're going to all of a sudden be on the up and up for this match. :rolleyes:

    I'm goin' with Buakaw! :D

    Buakaw by decision. Although K-1 took away his clinch (why?!!) he's still a very dominating fighter who never runs out of steam and has such control over any situation it's very difficult to keep him from imposing his will. However, if any fighter can break Buakaw's grip, Zambidis and his raw explosiveness can.

    This will be a war

    I'm going to say Buakaw by decision. Probably a toss-up though.

    Anybody know if it'll be televised in the States?

    Tough one this, but my first bet would be with Zambidis by KO. If he gets on the inside and lands a sweet one on Buakaw, it's over.

    If Zamb doesn't win by KO then i think Buakaw will win by decision though.

    Ikken, how did you watch the fight?

    Got a link for that website with all the K-1 videos on it? (whether it's on it or not)

    Just watched the fight and Ikken's right Buakaw dominated. Taking out the clinch is such a silly rule though, a couple of times at the end Buakaw looked like he was just itching to start throwing knees when Zambidi came in and grabbed but instead he had to just throw Zambidi down... silly K1. Nice fight though!

    I think Buakaw played his game very well. He was able to keep Zambidi away from doing serious damage with his punches. . . . .

    I also concur that taking out the clinch is stupid and pointless. They can still kick and punch. . . . . . .
