Simply The Best 11 Poprad takes over European kickboxing on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at Arena Poprad, Slovakia.
Promoter Lukas Bodyy returns eminent series to Slovakia with the third edition. The event last year produced the clash of the continents when Chan Hyeong Lee of Asia defeated Europe’s Samuel Hadzima. The upcoming Simply The Best 11 Poprad fight night is a championship of Europe. In addition, kickboxing and MMA international title bouts feature on the card. The bill is topped up by intercontinental super bout South America vs Europe. The gala airs on SFR Kombat Sport, Poprad 24, Digi Sport and O2 Sport.
The fight card has seen changes. Previously announced main event with Tomaz Mozny and Georgij Fibich for the super heavyweight title is postponed. ‘The Giant Slovak’ had to pull out due to an injury he received at Fight Night Saint Tropez in August. The WKN announced an updated card this morning.
Prominent Vladimir Idranyi of Slovakia and Matous Kohout of Czech Republic take over the main event. The pair will challenge for the light heavyweight European championship. Samuel Hadzima is facing Xavier Lejour from Belgium in the lightweight kickboxing international title fight. Vitor Pinto is lined up for the defense of his middleweight MMA belt against local Emin Sefa. Moreover, Andres Dussan of Colombia is travelling across the sea to take on Tomas Senkyr in the intercontinental super fight. Ivana Miklasova and Ashley Gilson beautify the show in women’s kickboxing clash.
All up, Simply The Best 11 Poprad is an eleven-fight super show.
