Sahak Parparyan last fought on May 12 in Kortrijk, Belgium where he defended his It's Showtime 85MAX World Title with a unanimous decision victory over Andrew Tate in a hard fought contest. That was Sahak's fourth fight of the year and understandably, he took some time off. His return is set, and it's this weekend.
On this Saturday, September 15 in Alkmaar, Netherlands, Sahak Parparyan returns to the ring and he's taking on another It's Showtime veteran, Jason Wilnis. Wilnis fought on the same card as Sahak in May, dropping a decision to Cheick Sidibe. He last fought on September 2 at the Muay Thai Mania V card in The Hague, getting a decision win over Louis Tavares. Wilnis is only 21 and still has a lot ahead of him in his career.
For Sahak, he's considered the best 85kg fighter in the world at the moment. He's also ventured up in weight on more than one occasion, beating Mourad Bouzidi at 95kg on short notice and beating Toni Milanovic at 91kg. Wilnis has also fought up in weight, as his last fight was at 93kg.
Also on the card is one of the brightest up and comers on the Dutch scene, Steve Poort. He's still in the B Class and is fighting Regian Eersel there.
