STB 20 Cordoba: Acero Cali vs. El Toro Visotzky
Simply the Best 20 takes place at Union Electrica in Cordoba, Argentina on June 9. The event follows kickboxing series STB 19 Buenos Aires scheduled for May 18 live on FOX Sports Latin America.
STB 20 Cordoba marks the return of Argentine kickboxing veteran, famed Jorge ‘Acero’ Cali. The hint of comeback was made in 2017, with the formal announcement of the scheduled bout, made on Friday.
‘Acero’ Cali is the former World Kickboxing Network Super Cruiserweight champion, who has successfully defended the belt three times. His most recent defense was held in 2010 back in Cordoba, where he scored the second-round knockout win against Brazilian Adul Ranmhemavo.
In the final fight in 2013 Cali faced the second-round TKO defeat against his Argentine Mixed Martial Artist Horacio Enrique, when he tested himself inside the Octagon. Nevertheless, Acero’s comeback is also scheduled in MMA.
Cali faces his country-fellow, MMA veteran Diego Lionel Visotzky (16-6-1). The latter represents the city-host of the upcoming show, Cordoba.
In his latest outing in 2015 ‘El Toro’ Visotzky took a unanimous decision against Javier Castellani of Paraguay. Earlier in his career he defeated Gabriel Aguilar, Ackson Junior, Pablo Chasarreta, among others.
‘Acero’ Cali vs. ‘El Toro’ Visotzky is scheduled for three by five minute rounds at heavyweight.
Simply the Best 20 Cordoba is also expected to feature a series of WKN championship bouts, as well as a set of rating kickboxing contests between Argentine and international competitors. The event airs live on FOX Sports Latin America.
More information is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
