Many thanks to Kimjudas.blogspot.com for the rip. I was slightly conflicted for this one. I’ve never been a big fan of Kraus, hell I’ve never even been a little fan of his. I found myself tonight feeling for the guy.
I think he must know he’s coming to the end of his career. Coming out to rocky the heavy underdog… I had pull for him. His fighting style is completely unsuitable for K-1, I’m amazed he lasted so long.
Towards the second round, I really started getting annoyed with him. Dude, did you forget how to kick? I think I might have seen him throw 3 the entire bout.
Petrosyan, is just too damn good. I would have liked to have seen Kraus catch him with something, but this was a counter fighters (petrosyans) perfect fight. A guy who constantly swings for the fences with little to no kicks at all. Petrosyan was built to fight guys like Kraus. It really didn’t suprise me to see Petrosyan out boxing the boxer, sort of sad really.
