Ever since Abraham Roqueni scored a huge upset over Andy Souwer last year, people know that he's not just some obscure fighter. He's a legitimate top level fighter and after getting some recognition with the Souwer win, he's gotten his fair share of big opportunities.
Roqueni just landed another big opportunity, this time again in Torrelavega, Spain. He'll take on one of the most recognized fighter in the sport, Albert Kraus under the banner of Born To Fight. Kraus is no stranger when it comes to fighting opponents on their home turf. Just last year, he faced Batu Khasikov in Russia, Marius Tita in Romania and Alexander Schmitt in Germany. Roqueni might just be his toughest home turf opponent as of late.
Kraus is still fighting soon on February 25 at Fighterzone World Kickboxing Series against Ekapop Sor Klinmee. He was only 3-3 in 2011 and a win over Ekapop would start 2012 off on a good note and a two fight win streak.
Roqueni has lost two in a row, but to Frank Giorgi in Muay Thai rules and Giorgio Petrosyan in K-1 rules so there's no shame at all in those losses.
