Enfusion Live is set to make a huge splash this year with ten events scheduled and another reality show. So far, the fight cards are looking solid and if we can get ten events looking like the ones that are currently scheduled, I don't think anyone will be disappointed. One of Enfusion Live's currently scheduled events takes place in Barcelona, Spain on March 9 and features some big names.
There are two big, main fights taking place on the card. First off, at 70kg Abraham Roqueni will fight Artur Kyshenko. This is a particularly interesting match-up with Kyshenko coming off his loss to Murthel Groenhart in the finals of the K-1 MAX 2012 WGP, while Roqueni scored a dominant win over Xu Yan on the same event. Roqueni has shown he can hang with pretty much anyone at 70kg. He gives trouble to some fighters with his style, which can be seen on full display in his fights against Andy Souwer.
Then there's the big 85kg fight between Sahak Parparyan and Barcelona's own Cesar Cordoba, one of the best Spanish kickboxers ever. For the past couple years, Cordoba has been very quiet, doing a bit of pro boxing and fighting kickboxing here and there in his hometown and now he's taking the step back up to the world stage, fighting one of the top 85kg fighters in kickboxing. Cordoba is 32 and still has a lot left in the tank and I expect this to be a very competitive match.
Also on the card at will be the return of Harut Grigorian, who hasn't fought kickboxing since his loss to Murthel Groenhart back in May. He faces Juanma Chacon of Spain. Enfusion Live will also introduce a 70kg title on the event, and Spain's David Calvo will fight Slovenia's Mirko Vorkapic for it.
Another 85kg bout will see It's Showtime veteran Moises Ruibal fight the surging Slovenian, Tadej Toplak, who comes off his biggest win yet over Ivan Stanic at the Enfusion: Trial of the Gladiators final in December. To end out the six main fights, we get a women's fight featuring Denise Kielholtz and Maribel Sousa at 56kg.
A few interesting lightweight fights on the card are Nico Barbera vs. formerly LiverKick ranked Ruben Almeida and German Tabuenca vs. Vardan Minsakatian.
