WKN France: Villejuif Boxing Show
The World Kickboxing Network visits Villejuif (commune in the southern suburbs of Paris), France on March 15. The event features a series of international bouts with two WKN titles contested in the headliner of the show.
Top of the bill is the WKN European Middleweight title fight between the representative of the country-host Benjamin Gerbet and Albanian-Greek George Gropaj. On Thursday the organization announced the second championship bout featured on the card (via Twitter).
