On Saturday 16th April, former four-time WKN world champion from Argentina Jorge Acero Cali promotes Escobar in Octagon fight night.

Escobar in Octagon is proudly presented by eminent Jorge Cali aka Acero [Spanish for Steel] who is a WKN ambassador in South America. Four times he conquered the world of kickboxing, and heartily credits the World Kickboxing Network and its president Stephane Cabrera for playing a significant role in the raise of his career.

After terminating fighting in the ring, Cali started a political venture aiming to improve the living of people in his home town Escobar. He has been evidenced as one of the most words worth personalities on the scene, and has recently obtained a position of the president of City Council.
