Many thanks to Gusnark in our Dutch Field office for sending this one along. The last time I time I posted anything on Giorgio Petrosyan was last year when he fought out boy Buakaw. Here he is fighting the fighter everyone loves to hate Raffik Bakouri.
This fight to place back in June, in Italy…
I actually feel bad for Rafik, there is a moment after Rafik get’s rocked the second time. You can see it in his eyes; he knows he’s in deep shit. I have to admit; I was a little shocked by Petrosyan’s performance. I think if they unleashed him in the Contender Asia, we might have seen him fighting in the finals with Yod.
If you remember, Petrosyan stunned a lot of peeps by earning a draw. Since then he’s been a very busy boy. He’s scheduled to fight Andy Souwer early next year. It’s unclear under what rules, but I can guarantee it’s going to be K1.
If anyone thinks Souwer is going to walk through him, there in for a surprise. Although relatively unknown, Petrosyan sports a 51-1 record. His only loss is to Nonthanan Por.Pramuk, and if you think he’s been fed fights check out this roster (Cedric Muller, Marco Pique, Arslan Magomedov, et al.)
