If there are two names on the SUPERKOMBAT roster I wouldn't mind seeing a lot more of, it would certainly be the high-flying Stoica brothers, Andrei and Bogdan.


Some of the most talented Romanian kickboxers in the game, the brothers competed side-by-side on SUPERKOMBAT's latest "New Heroes" event in Târgoviște. Easily the biggest and most technically skilled names on the card, Bogdan and Andrei took on Marsan Yohan and Zinedine Hameur Lain, respectively.

Bogdan made short work of his opponent, cutting Yohan with a flying knee only seconds into the first round. The ref called a stop to the fight moments later.

Andrei's fight lasted longer, but was equally one sided. The older Stoica brother abused Hameur Lain for 2 and half rounds, dropping his opponent with a nasty body shot in the second and pounding his arm with blistering left kicks throughout. Just when it looked like the Romanian would be content to coast to a unanimous decision victory, Andrei unleashed a brutal right hand that put Hameur Lain down and out for good.

I'd like both Andrei and Bogdan to face a step-up in competition in the near future, considering they've been absolutely plowing through mostly everyone SUPERKOMBAT has put in front of them. While Bogdan no doubt needed a warm-up fight or two after coming back from a nearly career ending moto accident, it's relatively clear he's leagues above the level of talent he's been facing.

You can check out the two finishes below, and expect ful results from Targoviste later in the day.
