News feed has no much to share from Caribbean region, unless it comes to the number one kickboxing federation – the WKN.

Caribbean region consists of the group of islands in Caribbean sea and the surrounding coasts. The capital of kickboxing is unofficially located in Guadeloupe. This is where the ‘Caribbean War’ fight nights see local and international kickboxers from Japan, Australia, Corsica and practically every European country. Moreover, the team from Guadeloupe have fought here in Perth, Western Australia back in 2011, in the card headlined by Nathan “Carnage” Corbett.

The following event is happening on March 26. The ‘Gwada Super Fight’ show can wish nothing more, nothing less, but the world championship kickboxing with France’s super-heavyweight Gregory Tony.

The top kickboxer Tony, who has an impressive record of 93 kickboxing bouts, 26 pro-boxing clashes and two victorious MMA challenges, will certainly not leave local fans disappointed. In addition among everything, since 2001 he has notable wins over Daniel Ghita, Errol Zimmerman, Alexey Ignashov and many others.

Tony won his WKN kickboxing (K-1 rules) super-heavyweight world title against Ukranian Dmytro Bezus in French Draguignan in October 2014. He then retained the belt with the KO win over Serbian Milan Dasic in December in Dombasle-sur-Meurthe. In the following two bouts this year Frenchman KO’d Panagiotis Diakos from Cyprus in Draguignan and his country fellow Yannick Vest in La Levandou, 83 Côte d’Azur. The next title challenger for Greg Tony is yet to be revealed. We will have more on this story as it develops.
