One thought on “2016 K-1 MUAY THAI fight – Jahfarr Wilnis vs Kirill Kornilov – full fight Video Glory 29”

  1. Too much difference in weight and strength. The Russian was technically better connecting several an very nice right knees to the body and good combinations of punches. Anyhow. in my opinion, he should improve his punching techniques in order to win some power by connecting straight punches instead of the very open ones he shown in this fight. Wilnis was more persisting and aggressive in his attacks where he connected good punches that carried out much more power than those from his rival therefore obtaining a deserved victory.
