Romania based kickboxing promotion SuperKombat is back with another event that features yet another four-man heavyweight tournament in its "World Grand Prix" series. SuperKombat has so far held two of its "SuperKombat World Grand Prix" events this year. The remaining two, which includes this Saturday's event will seal the list of participants in SuperKombat's year end World Grand Prix event in Frankfurt, Germany. Each World Grand Prix event features a four man heavyweight tournament, with the winner advancing to the final year end show. So far, Sergei Lascenko and Ismael Londt have qualified.
This weekend's tournament pits Ricardo van den Bos against Pavel Zhuravlev and Stefan Leko against Sebastien van Thielen in the semi finals. The winner will advance to the year end World Grand Prix in Frankfurt.
Also featured on the card are five other fights in the heavyweight division. Redouan Cairo returns and fights Frank Munoz. Both of these fighters could easily fight a weight class under, with Cairo having fought most of his fights between 85 and 95kg. One of the times Cairo did step up to heavyweight, he got beat pretty badly by Filip Verlinden. Another heavyweight fighter, Benjamin Adegbuyi of Romania fights Martin Hauser of Slovakia. Adegbuyi is being brought up slowly in Romania, not having faced great competition yet.
