    For everybody in here who doesn't know him. Nieky Holzken is a boxer who was one of the best kickboxers in the world before transitioning. Looking back at his destruction of Raymond Daniels, it's no suprise how far his skills have taken him. Enjoy.

    Callum Smith's resume took a boost due to this article.

    He has been out of the ring for over a year now. Hope we'll see him back soon, as he gave Callum a decent fight as a late replacement.

    I think age has caught up to him. He took a pretty bad beating in One last week. Granted he showed declines in kickboxing even prior to the Smith fight.

    I think many said he was shot in kickboxing? Then he switch to boxing, it somehow gave Holtzken a second wind. Maybe he should return to boxing :p

    Agree, he's clocking a lot of miles on the odometer at this point

    If there was a dedicated equivalent of Canastota for Western kickboxing (instead of piggybacking on the international karate HOF, as is the case) Nieky would be first ballot. :thumbsup:

    Something like that needs to happen before Superfoot, Benny the Jet and Don Wilson etc. Die. Western Kickboxing has a very rich history and it's participants deserve to be immortalized.

    I saw him fight on a ONE championship card. It's an Asian promotion that deals with Muay Thai, Kickboxing and MMA. They have been throwing a lot of money around lately.
    Might be that he stays there for a while.

    Dude is still a beast at 35. He should stick to kickboxing. He looks a lot better doing so.

    Sage sucks tbf. UFC basically let him go. Dude was getting knocked down left and right by nobodies in the UFC.
    It's believed that ONE made Northcutt out to be a sacrificial lamb. A lot of people were shocked that they threw him in there with Cosmo. And they were right.
    So now there is a lot of talk about ONE being superior to UFC. Because a nobody in Sage and past it Eddie Alvarez got flattened.

    That kid was way bigger, lanky power too. Still a big upset. Hope he comes back better or not at all.
