Review: 2014-04-12, good start but disappointing finish…Gokhan Saki vs Nathan Corbett can’t get more than two stars. Gokhan Saki entered this fight with a kickboxing record of 79-17-0 (56 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.2 heavyweight in the world, he fought just twice in 2013 winning the rematch against Daniel Ghita (=Saki vs Ghita 2) but then he lost to Rico Verhoeven via majority decision (semifinal of the Glory Hw tournament: Saki vs Verhoeven).
His opponent, Nathan ‘Carnage’ Corbett, has a record of 59-4-0 and he entered as the No.3 super cruiserweight, he fought three times in 2013 losing only to Tyrone Spong (4-stars fight: Spong vs Corbett 2). Saki vs Corbett is the semifinal of the Glory light heavyweight tournament; undercard of Robin van Roosmalen vs Marat Grigorian – Glory 15. Watch the video and rate this fight!
