Abraham Roqueñi vs. Giga Chikadze on Sunday in Spain

Abraham Roqueñi has been a name fighter at 70kg ever since his win over Andy Souwer two years ago, and this weekend he's back in action for his first fight of 2013.

Roqueñi will fight Giga Chikadze on this Sunday, February 3 at Street Culture Fight Night 2 in Tenerife, Spain. The fight will be at 70kg under K-1 rules, with three rounds of three minutes. This will be Roqueñi's first fight back since his win over Xu Yan at the K-1 MAX Final in December. Chikadze, a Georgian, is based out of Holland and has been on It's Showtime and SLAMM events to name a few. It's a big opportunity for him to try and make a name for himself.

Also on the card will be a Muay Thai fight between Carlos La Loba and Emad Kadyear. La Loba defeated one of the top Spanish up and comers, Maximo Suarez, in October and continues to string together wins, making him one to watch out for.

Speaking of Maximo Suarez, he'll also be on the card, taking on Flavio Santos.


Two Fights Set For Sanny Dahlbeck

Sanny Dahlbeck introduced himself to the world last year with his run in GLORY's 70kg tournament, which saw him make it to the semi-finals. Since then he's stayed busy, winning the Swedish Muay Thai Championships. Now he has two upcoming fights set for the next two months.

First, on February 23, Dahlbeck will return back to the pro game at rising Swedish promotion Supremacy League's next event, Supremacy II - Triumph. His opponent will be Marcin Parcheta from Poland, and the fight will be under K-1 rules with three rounds of three minutes.

Then on March 24, Dahlbeck will fight for another upstart Swedish promotion, Heroes Fighting Championship. There he'll take on Mauro Serra under full Muay Thai rules at 70kg.


Enfusion Live's First Show of 2013 on Saturday

Enfusion Live has big plans this year, with a bunch of events already scheduled. The first of those events will come on this Saturday, February 2 from Zwevegem, Belgium.

The most prominent name on the card is Andrew Tate, a top fighter at 85kg. His fight will take place at 85kg and will be against fellow Enfusion: Trial of the Gladiators contestant David Radeff of France. This will be Tate's first fight since getting stopped by Franci Grajs on December 2 in the final of the Enfusion tournament in Slovenia, so it should be interesting to see how he rebounds.

Also on the card is a four man heavyweight tournament. The winner will qualify for Enfusion's upcoming reality show in Las Vegas. Mohammed Achachbaun will fight Thomas Vanneste in one semi final and in the other, Gaetan Sautron will fight Kirk Krouba.

Enfusion Live will also crown a Women's 61kg champion a the event, with Ilona Wijmans stepping in for Aleide Lawant, to face Anke van Gestel. At 70kg, It's Showtime veteran Sonny Dagraed was supposed to take on Kevin Hesseling, but Dagraed got injured and is replaced by Cenk Cankurtaranoglu, who actually stopped Dagraed last year.
