Simply the Best Kickboxing

Kickboxing series Simply the Best 22 takes place at club GEI in Buenos Aires on September 22 (Sep. 23 AWST). The event features some of the leading Argentine and South American fighters, with two WKN International titles contested on the top of the bill.

A super featherweight battle between Edgardo Cuenca and Cesar Benitez was added to the card this past weekend. The matchup is a three-round all-Argentine kickboxing encounter.

Cuenca makes his third Simply the Best appearance following series 15 and 7 produced in Moreno and Caseros, where he faced Ivan Bodeant and Gerardo Dos Santos (respectively). Benitez appeared at the second “STB” event back in 2014, when he went up against famed Ignacio Capllonch.

Simply the Best 22 is headlined by Argentine Cristian Bosch up against Colombian Andres Dussan battling out for WKN International Super Light Heavyweight title. The co-main event is the WKN International Middleweight contest between local Martin Velasco and Eduardo Vergara of Colombia.

The rest of the card includes a series of kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA bouts. The official weigh-in ceremony is held at the “Scissors” in Castelar a day before the fight show. The lineup can be found below.

STB 22 Buenos Aires is scheduled on Fox Sports (Latinoamerica), CN23 and B1B in terms of the “Estrellas de Acero” programme (Steel Stars). WKN President Stephane Cabrera attends the event as a special guest.
