Yodsanklai Fairtex, Andrei Kulebin and Amancio Paraschiv feature on the card at Kunlun Fight 57 this Sunday in China.

Kunlun Fight 57 is an international kickboxing promotion held on February 26 in Sanya. Some of the most eminent welterweights take part in the event. Muay Thai celebrity Yodsanklai Fairtex governs the bill. After almost two years of break he is back in business. The King of Muay Thai faces off Russian Saifullah Hambahadov.

Furthermore, multiple world champion in Muay Thai, Andrei Kulebin tops up the program. Last December “The Bullet” out of Belarus took on the man himself, Buakaw Banchamek, although suffering a defeat. Nevertheless, he is again on the winning path, with the victory over Wu Xuesong at the previous Kunlun Fight show early January. Tomorrow night Kulebin is going up against Ali Makhi of Belgium.

Kickboxing expert out of Romania, Amancio Paraschiv also battles out on the card. He is a current Super Kombat middleweight champion as well as a two-time WKN super welterweight intercontinental title holder. At Kunlun Fight 57 “The Viking” squares off with local Kong Lingfeng. Moreover Paraschiv is lined up to take on famed Giorgio Petrosyan at Bellator Kickboxing 5 (Bellator 176) this April in Turin.

Kunlun Fight 57 comprises Brazilian Danilo Zanolini against Chinese Hua Xu. Mohamed Mezouari of Morocco squares off with Arman Hambaryan of Armenia, as well as Samuel Bark of Sweden and Steven Banks of the US face off local Wei Ninghui and Ye Xiang.

In addition, Artur Kyshenko out of Ukraine was also reportedly participating in tomorrow’s show. However to date the organization has not announced the name of his opponent. Kyshenko is a multiple European and world champion, K-1 World Max runnerup, Kings of Kings 71 kg champion, as well as the Kunlun Fight promotion’s inaugural 80 kg champion.
