Simply the Best 18 Poprad: Samuel Hadzima vs Tarik Mahillon

Simply the best Kickboxing

Kickboxing series Simply the Best 18 takes place at Arena Poprad on Friday March 16. The fight card is the ten-fight bill with three WKN titles contested on the night.

Among the bouts presented on the main card Slovakian Samuel Hadzima faces Belgian Tarik Mahillon in a highly anticipated rematch, battling out for WKN International lightweight title. The pair has originally met at STB 17 Farciennes last November, when the representative of the country-host took win by TKO in the first round.

This time battling out in front of his home crowd, the 25-years-old Samuel Hadzima (18-9-0) aspires to take the revenge for the defeat he faced in Belgium. Fighting out of Body Gym Poprad, he is the reigning WKN Slovakian lightweight champion, winning the belt against Lukas Mandinec by decision at Rebuy Stars Fight Night in Kosice last June. His resume also includes the battles against Sebastian Bytyqi, Chan Hyeong Lee, Antoine Habash, among others.

The 29-years-old Tarik Mahillon (9-3-1) represents famed Osman Gym in Charleroi. He is coming off the win against Stephane Candel taken earlier this month at Invictus Show 3 in Beyne-Heusay.

The Hadzima vs. Mahillon 2 bout is scheduled for three rounds.

On the top of the bill at Simply the Best 18 Poprad Slovakian Vladimir Idranyi and French Dylan Colin contest for World Kickboxing Network super middleweight title. The full fight card can be found below.
