SuperKombat Explains The Lack of Stoicas On Recent Cards

SuperKombat is a promotion that has done a great job in building up its own stars, often times from just about scratch, taking rough fighters with talent and putting them in an international spotlight. Two such fighters were the Stoica brothers, Bogdan and Andrei. Both were focal points for the SuperKombat promotion, but have been mostly fighting for the Respect World Series events of late, their omission on SuperKombat cards notable. 

There were rumors of financial debates being the core of the fracture, but now SuperKombat's Alin Huiu spoke with KickboxingPlanet about why we haven't seen the two on their cards. 

Bogdan and Andrei were in this situation with a 90% rate of participation in Superkombat events from 2011 to 2015. In last two seasons, both lost world titles and new fighters came in the international attention so probably they had also an image problem. Beside that, we must accept that we passed difficult time with partners and sponsors and in the same time, fighters were asking more money even they didn’t had the same positions in the rankings. After different conflicts with their team, who was putting pressure on financial conditions, the business relationship with their gym was cancelled. 

While he said never say never to seeing them again, it seems like for now SuperKombat has shifted their focus to building other stars and that the Stoica brothers are finding their own way in the world. SuperKombat's next event is scheduled for October 1st.


Glory Signs 4 New Fighters

Glory recently announced the signing of 4 new fighters to their promotion.

Fans of K-1 Japan know better than to mess with Takeru, the K-1 -55kg Champion, a truly violent force in kickboxing.

This goes down on November 5th at Yoyogi National Stadium and will be an 8-man tournament.
