Enfusion recently combined with the UK's Xplosion Fight Series to form Enfusion LIVE, and will launch a series of events next year. This weekend on December 2, the third season of the Enfusion kickboxing reality show comes to an end with the finals, featuring a one night, four man tournament with the 85kg finalists.
The format of the reality show is that fighters qualify for the finals by winning two fights. The four finalists are definitely some of the best fighters at 85kg, being Andrew Tate, Sahak Parparyan, Ritchie Hocking and Franci Grajs. Two semi finals will be fought and the winners of those fights will fight each other in the final.
It's Showtime 85kg champion Sahak Parparyan fights Slovenia's Franci Grajs, while Andrew Tate, who fought Sahak this year, faces Scotland's Ritchie Hocking. This is a pretty interesting tournament, as Grajs and Hocking are definitely less known than Sahak and Tate but they're no doubt good fighters and will provide tough tests and have the ability to cause upsets.
As well as a tournament with the male finalists, there's also a four man women's tournament featuring the show's coaches, in the same format as the men's tournament. Denise Kielholtz faces Lindsay Scheer in one semi final, and on the other side of the tournament, Chajmaa Bellakhal faces Lucy Payne, with the tournament being at 60kg.
The rest of the card features some Slovenian fighters, including Jasmin Becirovic taking on the tough veteran Wendell Roche. All tournament fights are K-1 rules.
