World series “Simply The Best” returns to Slovakia with the fourth episode produced in the country. The event held on Saturday October 14 at Steel Arena in Kosice follows three previous chapters presented in Poprad. It is also the second show in the city with the inaugural event “Rebuy Star Fight Night” promoted in June.
Simply The Best 16 Kosice is a mixed fight bill comprising kickboxing, boxing and MMA bouts. The fight card includes the A-list Slovakian athletes up against international opponents. Prestigious WKN titles will be contested during the evening.
Over the last several weeks the organization has been announcing the names of fighters partaking in the event. On Monday the promotion released a new clip featuring Slovakian lightweight Mixed Martial Artist Miroslav Strbak (14-6), who makes his Simply The Best debut facing off an opponent yet to be named.
Miroslav Strbak is coming off the second-round stoppage victory he scored against Czech Matej Kuznik at Oktagon 3 Prague in July. His resume also includes the wins against Japanese Akihiro Gono, Poland’s Patryk Rogoz, Hungarian Adam Nemeth, among others. The new video the organization shared on Facebook featuring Strbak, follows the demo released last week with Slovakian Muay Thai star Vladimir Moravcik.
