The WKN is the first federation in the history of Romania to ever sanction kickboxing World championship there.

SuperKombat World Grand Prix 2015 Final event was held last night in Bucharest, Romania. The gala has seen a 4 man kickboxing heavyweight championship tournament, a number of super fights, and the headliner of the show which produced a super-cruiserweight world title clash between Spain’s Loren Jorge and the representative of the country host Andrei Stoica.

Loren Jorge has made as much or as little, but an upset for the local crowd. It was all over on the third minute of the first round when the referee has stopped the fight. Three knockdowns have seen their action with Stoica being tagged, dropped and wobbly. Jorge has become a new SuperKombat super-cruiserweight title holder.

The president of the major kickboxing governing body the “World Kickboxing Network” Stephane Cabrera was invited as a VIP guest to attended the show.

This is where the main fight of the night has seen the winner of the “SuperKombat” world title Loren Jorge presented with the prestigious WKN championship belt.

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.”
