Simply the Best 18 Poprad
World series Simply the Best returns to Slovakia on Friday March 16. STB 18 Poprad features the ten-fight bill with kickboxing, boxing and MMA bouts presented on the program. On Saturday WKN announced an updated fight card via Twitter.
The bout between Slovakian Tomas Mozny and Greek heavyweight Christos Soulas is no longer featured on the card. Earlier this week FIGHTMAG revealed that “The Giant Slovak” was forced to withdraw due to injury he had sustained in his previous bout against Czech Daniel Skvor at GLORY 51 Rotterdam held last weekend.
Nevertheless, the fight card was topped by super welterweight Michal Gazdik who faces his Slovakian-fellow Miro Trenciansky. The bout is scheduled for three rounds in oriental kickboxing (K-1 rules). Both fighters make their Simply the Best debut.
STB 18 Poprad is headlined by Slovakian Vladimir Idranyi who takes on French Dylan Colin contesting for World Kickboxing Network Super Middleweight title. Also on the card Slovakian Samuel Hadzima and Belgian Tarik Mahillon square the differences in the rematch for WKN International Lightweight belt. In addition, Erik Matejovsky and Jozef Kolodzej battle it out for WKN Slovakian Light Heavyweight strap. The updated fight card can be found below.
