The dust has barely settled after LNK Fight Night vol. 6 held last Saturday (March 17) at Arena Riga, but the next edition is already in the making. The upcoming event is scheduled for May 12, World Kickboxing Network announced via Twitter.
LNK Fight Night is promoted by Vadim Milov and Eugene Sapronenko. The event features a mixed fight-bill with boxing, kickboxing and MMA bouts presented on the card.
“Our goal is to popularize boxing in Latvia. Build modern boxing gyms and raise boxing champions both Olympic and professional, following the lead of Mairis Briedis, who is making Latvia famous around the world,” Vadim Milov told FIGHTMAG in February.
“We decided to put MMA and Kickboxing in the mix because we wanted to bring more people to our shows. So we bring all famous Latvian fighters together.”
The recent edition showcased fourteen bouts with two titles contested on the night. In the main event Latvian Andrejs Podusovs scored a unanimous decision against Tanzanian Iddi Mkwela, as well as earned IBA International lightweight title. In the co-main event local Artur Gorlov claimed the first-round knockout win against German Neil Aquino and took WKN International super cruiserweight belt.
The roster of LNK Fight Night vol. 7 is currently in the making. We will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
