Invictus Arena 27: Two WKN kickboxing titles official

Two WKN titles are on the line tonight (Dec. 15) at Palazzetto Guglielmo Fiorini in Rome, Italy. The event titled “Invictus Arena 27” features lightweights Francesco Picca and David Ruiz Marrero in a five-round contest for European gold, following super featherweight international title clash between Alessandro Moretti and Abramo Abderrahim.


The representative of the country-host Francesco Picca has held WKN International super lightweight title earned by unanimous decision against Islam Ibragimov. Last December he became the winner of WKN International Grand Prix in the lightweight class.

The resume of David Ruiz includes the wins against the likes of Adonai Mederos, Jhon Cortes, to name a couple. The Spanish kickboxer is now looking to lift WKN European Gold.

Local Alessandro Moretti is a former World Kickboxing Network super featherweight title challenger. He faced Brandon Vieira of France this past April, yet suffered the defeat by TKO in the second round due to rib injury.

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

The official weigh-in ceremony was conduced a day before the fight show (Dec. 14). All athletes successfully made the required limit of 64.4 kg (142 lbs) for lightweight and 62.1 kg (136.9 lbs) for super featherweight.

Invictus Arena 27 is presented by Riccardo Lecca. The undercard features a series of bouts with local and international competitors.
