Simply the Best Kickboxing
Kickboxing World Championship returns to Belgium with Simply the Best 17 Farciennes held at Hall Omnisport on Sunday November 26. The event is the third episode produced in the city and the fourth in the country, following the very first series in Charleroi in 2014.
The fight card for the upcoming show has been finalized earlier this week. The program includes nine bouts with the A-list Belgian fighters up against the representatives of Sardinia, Russia, Slovakia and France.
The main event features Italian Lorenzo Piras (21-5-0, 10 KOs) in defense of WKN World lightweight title against Belgian Allan Gozdzicki (45-20-3, 13 KOs). The bout is also a rematch following their original encounter on Sardinia in April, where the local fighter took a unanimous decision.
Also on the card Belgian Tarik Mahillon faces Slovakian Samuel Hadzima, battling out for WKN International lightweight title. In addition, Belgian Gaetano Pirello and French Rehda Chtibi challenge for WKN European lightweight pro-amateur belt.
