Today in Seregno, Italy, two rising prospects, Chingiz Allazov and Alessandro Campagna, in the world of kickfighting both met in a Muay Thai rules fight at -69kg.

Allazov for the most part has fought around 67kg but is making a slight move up in weight recently since March, inching closer to the money weight of 70kg. Campagna usually fights around 70kg but last month won a WAKO World Title at -66.8kg so size-wise, there wasn't much of a size difference at 69kg. Both fighters have fought in Muay Thai and in K-1 rules before so again, this was an equal playing field between two big prospects.

In quite a surprise to me, Allazov KO'd Campagna in the first round. I thought the fight would probably go to a decision, as both fighters had never been knocked out before. Allazov continues to surprise me and I keep having to raise the bar on him even higher each fight. 

Hopefully a video gets out soon. After this fight, Allazov really has to be considered as the top prospect in all of kickboxing (where I think his future really is). I really think he could hop right in the ring with some elite level fighters right now. At almost 19 years of age, that is just scary.
