After a very successful first show of the year that took place last Saturday in Milan, Fight Code is coming right back with a show in Minsk, Belarus on April 14 at the Minsk Sports Palace.
The show will continue with the Dragons tournament at 72.5kg. At the last Fight Code event, Mustapha Haida and Enriko Gogokhia both advanced to the Final 16 of the Fight Code Dragons tournament. For this event, there will be four Final 32 fights in the Dragons tournament, with the winner advancing to the Final 16. Fight Code 2011 Dragons winner Yury Bessmertny will be participating in one of those four bouts, against Edvin Erik Kibus of Estonia. The other three Dragons fights see Vitali Nikiforov take on Evgeni Telitsa, Maxim Smirnov against Dmitry Baranov and Farhat Ahmedjanov against Tadas Jonkus.
There will also be two non tournament fights featuring two big names. Rising talent Chingiz Allazov, who trains with Yury Bessmertny, has been destroying everyone in his path lately and will be facing Russian fighter Dmitry Rudenko at a weight of 69kg. Allazov normally fights 67kg but it seems he's starting to move up in weight a bit, as he fought Bovy last Saturday.
At 81kg, Dmitry Shakuta has been one of the top fighters around this weight class for a long time. He'll take on Igor Ljapin of Ukraine. Full fight card below.
