The representative of the country-host Alessandro Moretti is a former World Kickboxing Network Super Featherweight title challenger. He faced Brandon Vieira of France this past April back in Rome, yet suffered the defeat by TKO in the second round due to rib injury.

Abramo Abderrahim was last seen in action late last month in Malta, where he went up against two-style WKN World Featherweight champion Keith Azzopardi, who won the fight by unanimous decision.

In the main event of Invictus Arena 27 Francesco Picca of Italy and David Ruiz Marrero of Spain square off in the scheduled for five rounds championship bout with WKN European Super Lightweight title on the line. The rest of the card features a series of kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA bouts.

The event marks the sixth visit of World Kickboxing Network to Italy for 2019.
