Легкая категория

On May 21, 2016 in the city Novy Urengoy at “The Yamburg Cup – Yamal 2016” for the WFKO belts will compete 4 lightweight fighters.
The Russian sportsmen Anton Adushkevich and Evgeny Solomennikov will face Dawid Ozga from Great Britain and Khoase Tshepo Prince from South Africa.
The fighters never met before on the tatami, so it is hard to make any predictions about how the five round fights are going to turn out.
It is also worth mentioning that only the South African fighter, who won the African WFKO Championship belt in the lightweight category in November 2015, has the experience of five round fights.
