Girl Power 8 was initially scheduled for February. On Saturday World Kickboxing Network announced a new date (via Twitter), making its third visit to Poland this year. It is also a debut of women’s kickboxing tournament in the country, following the previous show produced last October in Czech city Kladno.

Five out of eight participants of Girl Power 8 Bedzin have been announced to date. The roster includes Slovakian Andrea Tothova, Maltese Diane Schembri, Italian Vittoria Di Mauro and two representatives of the country-host Katarzyna Jaworska and Wiktoria Mirecka. The names of three other competitors, representing Ukraine, Belarus and Poland, are expected to be announced shortly.

Mirecka and Schembri make their second attempt to win the tournament. Both fighters took part in the previous contest, yet were eliminated in the quarter-final and in semi-final bouts, respectively. Tothova, Di Mauro and Jaworska make their series debut.
