STB 21: Salas faces Romero, Fernandez takes on Ayala, Lopez vs. Gotta second Full Contact battle
Simply the Best 21 Buenos Aires is held at the Nina nightclub in Ituzaingo, Buenos Aires on July 22 (July 23 in Aus.). The series produces arguably the biggest fight card of the year in Argentina, featuring some of the leading South American fighters in a mixed bill with kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA bouts presented on the programme.
In addition to the previously announced 16-fight lineup, four bouts have been added to the card late this week. In one of the contests Luis Giorgio faces his Argentine-fellow Facundo Suarez. The pair meets in the scheduled for three rounds kickboxing bout at middleweight.
As well, the second Full Contact bout has been added to the card. The all-Argentine super middleweight matchup features Nahuel Lopez up against Alan Gotta. The first kickboxing classic between Federico Gentiluomo and Dylan Salazar was announced earlier this week.
In addition, Nicolas Salas faces his country-fellow Edgard Romero in a super lightweight battle. Plus, an international women’s flyweight encounter between Argentine Tamara Fernandez and Jaquelin Ayala of Chile tops up the programme. All eight fighters make their Simply the Best debut, appearing in the undercard.
STB 21 is headlined by Argentine Guillermo Benitez up against Juan Pablo Zena of Paraguay. The pair battles out for WKN International Middleweight title. The current lineup can be found below.
