My exclusive release in September last year evidently throws-in a renowned circle of history. The release was dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the World Kickboxing Network. Reflecting on two decades of his own distinguish work, particularity about Romania, Stephane Cabrera has said the following:
“In Romania with my friend Eduard Irimia we have built the Local Kombat branch.”
“Kickboxing was completely unknown in Romania, but now their fighters are even more popular than football players.”
“The WKN is the first federation in the history of Romania to ever sanction kickboxing World championship there.”
“Local Kombat became very successful and then I let Eduard continue running it alone, as my job was done. He is now one of the biggest European promoters who makes a SuperKombat show every month live on Eurosport with a large and serious audience. We are still friends and he is doing a good job for sport.”
