WKN Belarus Big 8 Tournament Results

Minsk Arena

Thanks to Bernard Caplin for sharing the results. In a very dominant run in the WKN Big 8 Tournament Sudsakorn Klinmee cleared out all of his opponents.  Those of you already familiar with Sudsakorn’s style already knows his death defying razor’s edge timing that he’s adopted since participating in international competition outside of Thailand.  Sudsakorn prior to that made his name in the stadiums in Thailand.

Sudsakorn’s style makes matches exciting and I have to admit I even find myself wondering how long can he maintain his edge with the risks he takes with his timing. Even taking Sudsakorn’s methodology into account the tournament final found him facing off with as most expected against Andrei Kulebin.

Quarter finals results:

  • Andrei Kulebin ( Belarus ) wins  versus Taylor Harvey ( Australia )
  • Erkan Varol ( Turkey ) wins versus Mthobisi Buthelezi( Africa )
  • Sudsakorn ( Asia ) wins versus Michael Manaquill ( North America ).  Manaquill was a late replacement for Malaipet Sasiprapa.
  • Kushnirenko ( Europe ) wins versus Marcos Cornejo ( South America )

Semi-Final Results:

  • Andrei Kulebin ( Belarus ) def. Erkan Varol ( Turkey )
  • Sudsakorn Klinmee ( Asia ) def. Ruslan Kushnirenko ( Europe )

Final Result:

  • Sudsakorn Klinmee (Asia) def. Andrei Kulebin (Belarus) TKO (Doctor Stoppage)

It s good to see an event of this scale make it on to Eurosport perhaps filling the gap Its Show Time left when it vanished off of Eurosport broadcasts.

  1. Sudsakorn is too big and strong for any foreigner at 66kg.
