In one of the title fights Emanuele Tetti faces Spanish Samuel Babayan. The pair battles it out for WKN World Flyweight strap. In another championship bout his Italian-fellow Alessandro Moretti takes on French Brandon Vieira. The contest is for WKN World Super Featherweight belt. Both encounters are scheduled for five rounds in oriental kickboxing (K-1 rules).

In addition to the previously announced championship lineup, the organization presented a complete fight card for the upcoming show (via Twitter). Top of the bill features the famed Thai fighter Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee up against local Samed Memaj. The non-title Muay Thai bout is scheduled for three rounds at catchweight with the limit of 74 kg.

Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee is former two-time WKN World Super Lightweight champion in Muay Thai, as well as the 2013 Thai Fight champion in Kard Chuek, where instead of boxing gloves the rope is used around hand and forearm. Over the course of his career he defeated Belarusian Andrei Kulebin, French Johane Beausejour, his Thai-fellows Kem Sitsongpeenong and Saiyok Pumpanmuang, among others. In addition back in 2011 he faced “The Doctor” himself Giorgio Petrosyan, yet suffered the defeat by a unanimous decision. In his previous bout early this year Sudsakorn stopped Luca Tagliarino in the second round.

The resume of Samed Memaj is less decorated that of his next opponent. He however appeared at such events as “Thai Fight” and “Max Muay Thai” facing the likes of PTT Petchrungruang and Petchsairung Sitjaysairung, just to name a couple.

The 82 kg catchweight Muay Thai battle between Italian Gabrielle Casella and French Corentin Jallon serves as the co-main event.
