Yesterday in Romania at the WAKO Pro World Grand Prix semi finals, Andrei Stoica met Jovan Kaludjerovic, a Serbian fighter at a weight of 94.1kg (207 lbs). Stoica is regarded as one of the top fighters in the weight range from 85-95kg. He beat another one of the top fighters in this weight range, Henriques Zowa in July and lost to Redouan Cairo in April. This alone just shows what a mess the 85-95kg range in kickboxing is.

No one expected Stoica to lose yesterday though. Kaludjerovic was an unknown for the most part and Stoica had a good showing in his win over Henriques Zowa. Stoica looked to be in control of the fight until he got caught with a crisp counter left hook, putting him on the canvas. Stoica looked very wobbly on his feet when he got up and Kaludjerovic swarmed the Romanian fighter. After a second count from the referee, this one a standing count, Stoica's corner threw in the towel.

This result just adds to the mess of 85-95kg. A new face in Kaludjerovic is thrown into the mix while an established name takes a step back. It'll be interesting to see what opportunities Kaludjerovic will get after this big win.
