South American taekwondo-kickboxer Ignacio Capllonch stopped Jerome Ardissone in the SEVENTH round, along with stealing his WKN full contact world title belt in the city of Nice last night.

It was a super-flyweight world title defense under original kickboxing ‘Full Contact’ rules for, now former champion from France, Jerome Ardissone.

The anticipated twelve-round championship of the World was over in the seventh, pronouncing South American ‘missile’ Ignacio Capllonch as a new WKN champion.

Opposite an upset caused for French star Ardissone, ‘El Misil’ Capllonch has added the second W.K.N. world title belt to his collection. He is now titled as a 2-time world champion under ‘Oriental’ and ‘Full Contact’ rules in bantamweight and super-flyweight classes.

In addition from the mention by the World Kickboxing Network president Stephane Cabrera last February when the title fight was just announced, kickboxing rules truly do not matter for Capllonch since he is also a Taekwondo world champion with over 300 bouts behind his belt.

Moreover, on the same show, France’s Jonathan Pastorino defeated famous Tomasz Makowski of Poland, taking featherweight world title.

In the mean time, on the other side of France, in the city of Strasbourg, Steeve Valente has claimed the TKO win over Armin Pumpanmuang from Thailand, and added the middleweight world title strap to his assemblage, which was also a final, retirement fight in Steeve Valent’s career; as well as Malta that crowned their unique professional kickboxer Daniel Zahra again, after he has defeated Ladislav Krystufek from Czech Republic.
