Fight for Glory: Campoy vs. Ghercioiu results

Three WKN titles were contested last night (July 13) in Catalonia, marking the sixth visit of World Kickboxing Network to Spain this year, following a series of MMARCA and Hombres de Honor MMA events. Presented by Jordi Calvet Guillen, the show billed as “Fight for Glory” took place at the Pabellon de Llefia in Badalona, featuring local and international competitors battling it out live on Canal+.

In the main event Antonio Campoy of Spain went up against Daniel Ghercioiu of Italy in the scheduled for five rounds battle. The WKN European Lightweight Kickboxing title was on the line. After five rounds of spectacular action the representative of the country-host claimed the win and a prestigious belt by unanimous decision.

In the co-main event Jose Quevedo faced his countryman Khyzer Hayat. The pair contested for WKN Spanish Lightweight title in Muay Thai. The encounter also went a five-round distance. The verdict heard the latter taking the win by unanimous decision.

In addition, Genis Salas met his country-fellow Farah Silva in the WKN Spanish Lightweight Kickboxing championship. The pair as well went head to head during five rounds. The judges decision pronounced Salas as the winner. Yet, he didn’t feel deserved it and passed the belt to Silva saying he “would rather give the belt away than feeling bad about myself [himself]”.

The three-fight championship card followed the undercard featuring a series of bouts in kickboxing and Muay Thai.
