  • Colosseum Tournament Kickboxing 34 - LIVE from Brasov, Romania 18.08.2022

     

    FightBox is proud to announce that Colosseum Tournament, Romania’s biggest kickboxing promotion, will be live from Brasov, Romania this Thursday August 18th starting at 6:00 pm CEST (7:00 pm local time).

    Colosseum Tournament is back for what could be the promotion’s biggest event of the year. Two four-man tournaments and a -77 kg title fight will all take place in Brasov, Romania during this blockbuster event.

    The welterweight division takes center stage at Colosseum Tournament 34. The current champion is Eduard Gafencu, one of the most exciting, hard-hitting and dynamic fighters out of Romania in recent years. Gafencu captured the -77 kg championship in May of 2019 and has electrified crowds since then. His opponent is an up-and-comer in Colosseum Tournament, Alexandru Amaritei, who defeated veteran fighter and former welterweight challenger Anghel Cardos in May of this year to earn the right to challenge Gafencu.

    Speaking of Cardos, he is one of four fighters who will take part in a one-night, four-man tournament to establish the next contender for the -77 kg championship. Cardos is one of only two men to ever defeat Gafencu. However, the last time the two met, Gafencu defeated him with a solid unanimous decision. Madalin Craciunica, Andrei Verde and Andrei Orza will also be vying for the title fight and anything is possible in a tournament setting.

    Colosseum Tournament also makes good on its slogan of “We Discover the Real Champions” by holding a second four-man tournament in Brasov on August 18th. This tournament will feature four of the hungriest young fighters in the -65 kg division and with the winner taking home the first ever “New Heroes” title belt. Valentin Mavrodin, Alexandru Popescu, Paul Cornea and Bogdan Floristeanu will all battle it out for the honors. Who will emerge victorious as the best of the new blood in Colosseum Tournament? The order of the tournament fights will be announced on 17.08 during the official pressconference. Below is the fight card as of this moment.
