FIght Nights - Battle at Moscow 9: Mineev, Stetsurenko, Ramazanov

Fight Nights has become one of the biggest and most successful promotions in Russia, drawing big crowds for events featuring kickboxing and MMA. Their main stars in kickboxing are Batu Khasikov, who actually helps run the promotion as a producer, and Vladimir Mineev, a 22 year old Russian with a ton of potential that right now could already hang with the top 95kg fighters in kickboxing. The promotion is back in Moscow on this Sunday, December 16 with a nice fight card on the kickboxing end.

Khasikov won't be on the card, but Mineev will and he'll face his toughest test to date in Ali Cenik. Cenik fights for GLORY and recently fought the It's Showtime 95kg champion Danyo Ilunga, dropping a decision but landing a ton of punches in the process. Cenik has a high work rate at times and this should be an interesting fight to see how Mineev deals with a volume fighter who will try to establish his own pace.

Also on the card is Alexander Stetsurenko, one of the top light heavyweights in kickboxing, who comes off winning the 2012 Tatneft Cup tournament with a decision victory over fellow top light heavyweight Hicham El Gaoui. Stetsurenko will face Karapet Karapetyan, who sufferred some losses earlier this year to Nieky Holzken and Joe Schilling, but rebounded and looked much improved in August with a KO win in Greece over Alexandros Chatzichronoglou.

Ramazan Ramazanov has found himself featured on Fight Nights as well, splitting fights with Mamadou Keta this year. Ramazanov will fight Fabian Gondorf from the Netherlands. Gondorf will be facing the highest level of competition he's ever faced here.
