The last card of SuperKombat's 2016 season takes place this Saturday in Bucharest, Romania. The headliners are two title fights, one being a rematch between newfound SuperKombat Middleweight Champion Chris Ngimbi and Amansio Paraschiv. The two met on October 1st in a clash for the title with Ngimbi overcoming the Romanian favorite via unanimous decision. The other is a battle for the SuperKombat Lightweight (-63.5kg) Championship between The Hurricane Cristian Spetcu against the former WKN world champion Simon Santana.
Interestingly enough, there is talk going around about this being the last, or one of the last, live kickboxing events that will be on EuroSport. For fans in Europe this is the end of an era, as EuroSport was a huge supporter of the sport of kickboxing for years. SuperKombat has promised that there will be big announcements in the coming weeks and months in regards to new television deals that are currently being negotiated all around the world, with them looking to return next year bigger than ever. That'll include a television deal in the United States.
Always looking to provide a rounded event, they'll feature former UEFA Champions League player Jay Gunnar Solis performing during the event as DJ Solis as well as at Bamboo in Bucharest for the afterparty.
The event will start at 19:00 CET and the New Heroes part will be broadcasted live by Fight Box HD, while the World Grand Prix is live on Eurosport 1.
