    Kickboxing has failed to ingnite in the US regardless of the promotion. I don’t understand it. MMA and boxing both do much much better.

    With that said, the arena in Italy had a lot of empty seats and Petrosyan was fighting. That’s not a good sign.

    Other than Holland and France (due to Savate), where exactly in the West is kickboxing really that popular?

Got something to say?
