W5 Grand PrixWe're just coming off a busy kickboxing weekend in the midst of a jam packed March, and already April is looking stacked.  We've previously covered 8 April cards featuring top international names - here's a 9th to add to the list.

On April 9 in Moscow, KO Fight Club will host the W5 Grand Prix - a one night, 4 man, 71kg tournament.  They've already announced the field, and it's pretty nice.  In semi-final #1, the resurgent #7 ranked Mike Zambidis will face Enriko Gogokhia.  The other semi-final sees #23 Dzhabar Askerov vs. William Diender.

Really good stuff here, with a very solid line-up.  As I mentioned, Zambidis has seemingly come out of nowhere to reclaim his spot as one of the division's most dangerous strikers, while Askerov looked simply phenomenal in his 1 round destruction at the Oktagon event a few weeks ago.  A Zambo vs. Askerov final would be something to see.  As for the other two - Diender also puts up a good fight, but will be a big underdog to Askerov.  Gogokhia was a semi-finalist in last year's K-1 MAX East Europe GP, losing to eventual champ Vitaly Hurkou, but he looked good at that show, and I'm interested to see him once again.

Also on the card are superfights featuring Alexander Stetsurenko, Basil Tereshonok, Ramil Novruzov, Roman Mailov, Vladimir Mineev, and Vitaly Shemetov, plus a reserve fight of Vladimir Shuliak vs. Peter Woznicki.
