Only two weeks removed from their successful fifth trip to London, England Enfusion Live hosts their 20th event this weekend on July 12th from the Palma Arena in Mallorca, Spain.
The card is headlined by an all-Spanish clash at 95kg between former K-1 veteran Loren Jorge vs. Damian Garcia. Most kickboxing fans will remember Loren Jorge as the only man Mirko Cro Cop has finished since returning to kickboxing in 2012. Loren looks to build off an upset win over recent Glory middleweight quarter-finalist Bogdan Stoica in the Superkombat promotion. His fellow countryman Damian Garcia recently competed in his second MMA bout, losing to French Heavyweight Chaban Ka by first round TKO. Garcia was born and bred in Mallorca will be looking to give his hometown fans something to cheer about come July 12th.
There'll also be a title on the line in the battle of the Imans as the UK's Iman Barlow and Morocco's Iman Ghablou square off in Barlow's first defense of her 54kg Women's Enfusion World Title. Barlow, who successfully defeated Loren Klijn at the Enfusion 15 in Dublin earlier this year, is definitely someone of note when it comes to women's kickboxing. Her opponent Ghablou, is currently training with former opponent Victoria Lomax for this fight, which is somewhat peculiar considering the two only fought a matter of months ago.
Journeyman Wendell Roche, who was TKO'd at Enfusion 19 by Andrew Tate and subsequently lost his 90kg title in the process, looks to get back in the win column against German Christian Brorhilker.

Yesterday it was reported on Badr Hari's "Official" Facebook page that Badr would be taking some time off from the world of kickboxing to attend to personal matters for a while. Now Badr Hari has told the Dutch press that he isn't and that the longtime "official" Facebook for Badr Hari is no longer to be considered official. This is another in a long line of mixed messages from Badr Hari in regards to social media presence over the years.
There are currently a few Twitter and Facebook accounts that have at each time been touted as Badr Hari's official account, with the preface that Hari himself wasn't running it, but having someone else do it for him. This account in question has broken reliable Badr Hari news in the past and clearly has a link with Badr Hari, although Hari has now disavowed the account. So take it for what it is when you refer to it. [source]
