Simply The Best 16 Kosice is held on Saturday October 14 at Steel Arena. The event is an international fight bill with kickboxing, MMA and boxing bouts featured on the program. It is the fourth series produced in Slovakia, following three episodes promoted in Poprad. It is also the second event in the city with a debut of “Rebuy Star Fight Night” presented in June.
To date the promotion announced the names of fifteen fighters expected at the event. The likes of Tomas Mozny, Petr Vondracek, Vladimir Ydranyi, Pavol Garaj, Vladmir Moravcik, among others, announced in the roster. The latter is arguably the most successful Muay Thai fighter out of Slovakia, who’s resume includes the victories against such famed fighters as Yohan Lidon, Artur Kyshenko, Murthel Groenhart. “Dracula” Moravcik also took on the King of Muay Thai himself, Yodsanklai Fairtex.
On Tuesday the promotion released a video that shows Moravcik in the gym. He also makes a speech inviting the world to attend STB 16 Kosice.
In addition, Slovakian super middleweight Stefan Meszaros has been added to the fight card. An upcoming event will be his second appearance in kickboxing series, following STB 11 Poprad last year when he defeated Bartosz Zajac of Poland by decision.
