Nenad Pagonis (born 28 July 1987 in Serbia) is a Serbian heavyweight-cruiserweight Muay Thai kickboxer as of 2013[update] fighting out of Mike's Gym in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Team Pagonis in Novi Sad, Serbia. In 2010 he became W.A.K.O. Pro world champion (K-1 rules). He won a number of world and European titles at amateur level.
Biography and career
Pagonis is of Greek paternal descent. In 2006, at the age of 19, he won a gold medal at the yearly Balkan Bames, and won gold at the W.A.K.O. European championships held in Macedonia. From 2007 to 2009 he won two world championships, two world cups and a further Balkans championship.
In 2010 Pagonis became professional, and won the W.A.K.O Pro world title against reigning champion Antonio Sousa, winning by a third round stoppage victory in Milan Sousa was knocked down three times before the referee stopped the fight. Pagonis then joined Mike's Gym in the Netherlands where he trained with fighters including Badr Hari and Melvin Manhoef. Pagonis has now won a world title 8 times (4 amateur titles, 4 professional title) and has won 3 European titles. Pagonis also appeared on It's Showtime in Athens in 2010, where he defeated Rustemi Kreshnik by decision, allowing him to challenge the reigning It's Showtime 95MAX champion Danyo Ilunga the following year.
A planned fight on December 9, 2012 under the newly formed Serbian "Supreme Fighting Championship" organisation did not take place after Pagonis was injured.
Beside his professional boxing career, he is the founder and the lead vocalist of the Serbian rock band Black Peacock (due to legal issues, the band changed its name to Black Peacock from Jurassic Rock, from his last name, which means peacock in Greek). Pagonis performs with the band manly covers of acclaimed songs by AC/DC, Deep Purple, Eagles and Judas Priest at various festivals around the Vojvodina region and Novi Sad, including the humanitarian Atina and Oktobar fest. Other than that, his music career includes the participation in the fourth season of the Serbian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar. In exact order, he imitated: Luis Fonsi (10th place), Axl Rose of Guns'N'Roses (3rd place), Šaban Šaulić (3rd place), Jelena Karleuša (6th place), Marc Anthony (1st place), Harry Styles (8th place), Robbie Williams (8th place), Conchita Wurst (10th place), Lenny Kravitz (9th place), Đorđe Balašević (10th place) and Brian Johnson of AC/DC (2nd place). In the final, he claimed 8th place out of 10.
