The World Kickboxing Network visits Sardinia on July 6 with international event held in Iglesias. It is the first promotion for the year held on a large island in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the second visit to Italy, following Ringmania 6 presented in Pero early last month.

The WKN European Featherweight champion Nicola Canu has been announced as the headliner of the upcoming show. The Italian fighter earned a prestigious belt by a unanimous decision against Jeremy Legrand in February 2016. He has also successfully defended his strap scoring the second round knockout win against Jouhri Abdelmalek.

In addition, Canu is former World Kickboxing Network Super Featherweight title challenger. Late 2016 he took the bout against Poland’s star Tomasz Makowski on a short notice, who came out victorious decision at Simply the Best 13.

An upcoming event in Iglesias is presented by Alessandro and Antonio Alias. Over the years the promotion has held a series of world-class events throughout the Island featuring local and international competitors, including Canu, Lorenzo Piras, Allan Gozdzicki, Gary Hamilton, among others.

The opponent for Nicola Canu, as well as other matchups are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
