Mr Smith
Posted: 2004-07-27 07:28:08
He fights Satoru Vasikova on 22 August at Koraken Hall in Tokyo on an AJKF show. Dont know much about Vasikova except that he went the distance with Samkor in his last fight.

Just come back from Japan and saw an advertisement with Liam (or Riam as they put it!) and his opponent pictured on the back of a AJKF flyer. If you want info of your fighter, Liam contact my friend Gareth (aka Satankid) he knows all the ins and outs of Thaiboxing in Japan.

oh and Good luck not that you need it!

Hi Liam, I am a trainer from a gym in Auckland, NZ and we are taking Andy Donaldson over to Japan in August to fight Kobayashi at 62kg on the same show. Andy is fit and hard and has beaten everyone in NZ and fought a few times over the ditch. He also trained in the Jitti Gym in Bangkok with Chopper in 2002.
I was told that you have fought Kobayashi. What can you tell us about him that might help?
We have talked to Dave Gahan who drew with him a few years ago and I have a tape. Dave says he has good hands and a hard kick. Looks like he can take a shot as well.Any other pointers?
My e-mail is if you can assist us in any way.


Brett. SMAC Muaythai& Kickboxing. NZ.

PS Look forward to meeting you guys in Tokyo.
Posted: 2004-07-29 03:52:01
i think you have been misinformed brett.liam hasnt fought kobayashi yet but i could be wrong no doubt he will tell you.have fun in tokyo you will enjoy it.

Good luck Liam and Mr Smith. Doing the UK proud.
Posted: 2004-07-29 08:45:03

Satoru is OK. He is an aggresive 29 year-old featherweight with a very successful Shin-Karate background as a amatuer and comes forward the whole time. He knocks his opponents down a lot and likes to stand and trade. He also has quite a good jab, which he leads with.

This year he has won 3, and lost 1 (to Samkor).
He should pose a stiffer test for Liam than Masuda did IMO.

His record is 10-4 (3KOs)
Posted: 2004-07-29 08:45:36

Vs Kobayashi (Win)

Cheers Satankid once again impressive information. This is the great thing about ax its a mine of info
Posted: 2004-07-29 10:15:56
The AJKF are brave promoters. The Japanese fighters named so far are all being given big match-ups on paper, in terms of experience.

Satoruvasikoba 10-4(3KOs) V Liam Harrison(UK) 18-1-2(11KOs)
Koji Yoshimoto 8-4-2 V Murad Tyarti(Holland) 25-10-3(9KOs)
Genki Yamamoto 10-2-2(5KOs) V Kristo Demitrakakis(Belgium) 20-4-2(8KOs)
Posted: 2004-07-29 10:33:09
well done satankid classy information.this is a bigger step up in class again but its the only way forward.i cant make it but i will get the dvd from samurai tv .just got his last fight on dvd and the quality is superb and highly reccomend it
liam badco
Posted: 2004-07-29 14:51:32
nice to know iv got people behind me especially jonny hemroid.
cheers for info satankid and nice pictures.
bret smac i havent fought kobayashi but from what iv seen of him hes a good boxer with strong leg kicks hes been stopped a few times aswell by shinobu hanato i think and samkor, theres also a few others but i aint sure. satan kid is the man if you want info.
Jony Andrade
Posted: 2004-07-29 14:57:53
I already said in the other thread that i spell it bad
i hope you knock HIM out :)
Jony Andrade

fair enough i apolagise for my rudeness cheers
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2004-07-29 15:57:51
Interesting that The Opponents ( Eorope ) have Far More Experience than the Japanese !
Fair Play to them !
Liams Got a Much better K.O. % Too
so Hopefully Liam you will Do the Do ! and keep it Up !
Posted: 2004-07-29 16:08:47
Liam's record 18-1-2 Does that mean 18 wins 1 draw 2 loss or 18 wins 1 loss 2 draw. I didn't think he had been beaten

Come on Liam what is the record
liam badco
Posted: 2004-07-30 05:17:14
i lost in a amateur junior fight when i was 13 my first time in a ring it always seems to crop up on my pro record which is 21 fights 19 wins 2 draws
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2004-07-30 13:26:33
Amatuer Junior Fight?
if head contact? its a Fight ! as its not Semi ( kids )
if no Head contact ? its a kids Semi and Shouldnt be Counted ! IMO
liam badco
Posted: 2004-07-31 12:10:31
no it shouldnt be counted on my pro record if it was an amatuer fight it was with full body armour when i was 13 years old so why should that go on my full contact adult record.
Mr T
Posted: 2004-07-31 12:42:57
Exactly Liam!!! Personally I think that the only fights that should go on a fighters professional record are the fights they have had without wearing protection (eg shin guards,head guard etc).
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2004-07-31 14:03:26
was it Semi? or FUll Contact Liam?
ie: was it head Contact or Not?
if it was?
then its a Fight ! But if you want to Count it as a Pure AM Fight?
and All others was Without Protection !!!
Then Your Totally Spot on !!!
Shouldnt be Counted !
Posted: 2004-07-31 23:00:52
Kobayashi was stopped on cuts by Namsaknoi and Anuwats pad man stopped him with knee's. hes an aggresive hard punching lowkicking fighter
Posted: 2004-08-01 00:11:28
Kobayashi has wicked hooks too but he loses more than he wins these days and his chin is not like it was a few years ago, which is unfortunate for a stand and trade type fighter like him.
Posted: 2004-08-01 03:32:02
"his chin is notlike it was a few years ago, which is unfortunate" good job Liam's got no power then and never knocks anyone out lol
liam badco
Posted: 2004-08-01 07:48:56

Sandy- It's the announced line-up so far. Kobayashi is also scheduled to fight but the opponent has not been officially announced yet. If you read the posts on this thread you will see that a fighter called Andy Donaldson is supposed to be fighting him.
Arashi Fujihara is also scheduled to fight against a foreigner too.

"The Hitman" travels out to Thailand today for some extra training with Jitti/ Mr Smith and SuperNoi (wot a team!)...... lucky bugga!

good luck liam!!!

Posted: 2004-08-03 03:35:00
who is supernoi?
i am only a learner so forgive my ignorance.
Posted: 2004-08-03 06:40:07
is he related to noi666?
Posted: 2004-08-03 08:35:10
I wish he was.... then it would be in my gene's.

he was fighting at the same time as Diesel Noi and was tipped as the next big thing. Unfortunately he had his leg broken with low kicks!!!!! .... and then obviously couldnt compete.... missed his window. Tragic story. Still trains fighters and has awesome technique.
He trained Samkheng Pinsinchai from 4/5 years old....
I think that speaks for its self!!!!
Posted: 2004-08-03 09:18:46
tragic story, and shame about your genes!!!!

Thailand one week, Japan the next - have you ever thought about sitting down for 5 minutes??
liam badco
Posted: 2004-08-22 23:11:35
cheers everyone and its back to thailand tonight for me aswell.
was a tough fight and i had a big problem with making the weight this time aswell i had to lose 3.5 kg on the morning of the fight i was devastated and totally drained so in the fight its self i was pretty tired but ive watched the video now and im pretty pleased with my performance. nearly knocked him out in the 5th with an elbow and was pretty apauled by the referee when he stepped between us to give him time to recover. i think i won the fight in rounds 3-5 when i got vasikoba on the back foot and started landing some sharp combinations. however he was very tough and was always in the fight right to the end. see you all soon
liam badco
Posted: 2004-08-22 23:23:21
splinter fujihara was a draw i think i got it wrong when i said he had won.
