Danyo Ilunga Back in Action in October

  • Written by Dave Walsh

IlungaIt's Showtime's 95kg MAX Champion will return to action in this October in Germany, taking place in a one-night, four-man tournament. He is coming off of a rather baffling title defense where the usually crisp and technical Ilunga looked frustrated and sloppy. Here's hoping that he goes back to his roots and fights in the style that he is better known for. Brent Ducharme at HKL has the story;

When he returns to action in October, Ilunga will be faced with some of the better competition he'd find in Germany. The Fight Night Mannheim 95 kg. tournament will also feature James Phillips, an American-German fighter who was, until recently, the only man to have beaten Romanian prospect Andrei Stoica. The field will be rounded out by strong Turkish veteran Bahadir Sari and the relatively unknown Michail Tutijerev.

The October event will also feature a four-man 75 kg. tournament. Competitors for that tournament are former amateur Muay Thai standout Alex Schmitt, the rangy Patrick Djanang, Daniel Kohler, and Tefvik Sucu (semifinalist in the Klash tournament won by Faldir Chahbari last November). [source]
