Simply the Best 19 Buenos Aires: Three WKN titles at stake
Simply the Best 19 Buenos Aires airs live on Fox Sports Latin America on May 18. The event takes place at Club GEI (Gymnastics and Fencing Club) in the city Ituzaingo, featuring three WKN International titles contested on the main card.
The headliner of the show is the WKN International Super Light Heavyweight championship rematch between the defending champion Argentine Cristian Bosch and Colombian Andres Dussan. The pair originally met in 2015 at STB 5 Caseros where the representative of the country host earned a unanimous decision.
Bosch is also the reigning WKN World Cruiserweight champion, winning the title via the fourth-round KO against Brazilian Alessandro Benacci in Caseros in December 2014. The following year he made his first successful International Super Light Heavyweight title defense, scoring a unanimous decision against the latter in their second outing.
Dussan is the WKN InterContinental Cruiserweight champion, taking the belt in September 2016 in Florencia where he stopped Brazilian Brandon Pereyra in the fourth round. He is also the first kickboxer out of Colombia who competed on European soil, when he appeared at STB 11 Poprad later the same year.
Facing off Bosch for the second time, Dussan aspires to take a revenge as well as become a new WKN International Super Light Heavyweight champion. Bosch is making his second championship defense.
Also on the main card Argentine Martin Velasco and Brazilian Marcelo Morrudo battle out for WKN International middleweight belt. In addition, Argentine Pablo Roa and Juan Avilar Villalba of Praraguay contest for WKN International lightweight strap.
Simply the Best 19 Buenos Aires is promoted by famed Jorge “Acero” Cali. Subtitled as “Estrellas de Acero” [Steel Stars, Eng.] is the first Episode out of five-event schedule announced live on FOX Sports Latin America.
