Abraham Roqueñi has been a name fighter at 70kg ever since his win over Andy Souwer two years ago, and this weekend he's back in action for his first fight of 2013.
Roqueñi will fight Giga Chikadze on this Sunday, February 3 at Street Culture Fight Night 2 in Tenerife, Spain. The fight will be at 70kg under K-1 rules, with three rounds of three minutes. This will be Roqueñi's first fight back since his win over Xu Yan at the K-1 MAX Final in December. Chikadze, a Georgian, is based out of Holland and has been on It's Showtime and SLAMM events to name a few. It's a big opportunity for him to try and make a name for himself.
Also on the card will be a Muay Thai fight between Carlos La Loba and Emad Kadyear. La Loba defeated one of the top Spanish up and comers, Maximo Suarez, in October and continues to string together wins, making him one to watch out for.
Speaking of Maximo Suarez, he'll also be on the card, taking on Flavio Santos.
