Both Chingiz Allazov and Alessandro Campagna are seen as some of the fastest rising prospects in kickfighting and on this Saturday, May 5, they'll be facing each other under Muay Thai rules at "La Notte Dei Campioni" in Seregno, Italy.
Despite Campagna recently fighting at 66kg and Allazov usually fighting around that weight, this fight is at 69kg, a weight where Campagna has more experience at. Allazov has moved up a bit in weight recently though, getting ever closer to the money weight of 70kg.
Both fighters have experience under Muay Thai rules and they both fight under K-1 and Muay Thai rules. Most recently, they've both fought in kickboxing, with Allazov defeating Dmitry Rudenko on April 14 at Fight Code and Campagna winning a Wako Pro world title under K-1 rules at 66.8kg against Luciano Lopes in Brazil. Before those fights, they both fought in Muay Thai, where Allazov defeated Erkan Varol on February 25 and Campagna defeated Corrado Zanchi on January 21 at Yokkao Extreme.
