Fabrice Aurieng and Ondrej Hutnik will challenge for the WKN kickboxing super heavyweight world title on Saturday, November 19, 2016 in Marseille, France.

The time has come for the forth edition of the Dark Fights. The event is promoted alongside La Nuit Des Champions 2016. France’s Fabrice Aurieng is taking on Odrej Hutnik for the prestigious WKN kickboxing world title.

The belt itself is as much or as little but an honorable trophy owned by Jerome Le Banner since 1998 and defended 4 times. The strap that ‘Geronimo’ earned at Evander Holyfield vs Vaughn Bean for the WBA and IBF heavyweight titles event at Georgia Dome in Atlanta, USA. Last August Le Banner retired victorious and afterwards vacated the title for the next generation.

Fabrice Aurieng is a solid name made-in France. He is a multiple champion in Savate, experienced kickboxer and boxer. In addition he is the winner of two Bigger’s Better tournaments. Although since 2014 the Frenchman is on the 7-fight winning streak he said he is not a favorite in the upcoming contest. LIDF reports that Aurieng wants nothing more but WKN title, even though he understands that 92-fight experience Hutnik is not a walk in the park.

Indeed, Ondrej Hutnik defeated Catalin Morosanu, Nicolas Wamba as well as Mikhail Tyuterev which declares enough. He hasn’t lost since 2014 either, producing an 8-fight winning portfolio.
