SuperKombat will be holding their second event of the month on this Saturday, October 15. The event will be the fourth and last of their "World Grand Prix" series before their final event where the tournament winners from each event battle it out in a tournament. The event will take place in Piatra Neamt, Romania to round out SuperKombat's tour of Romania for the year, being held in four different cities across the country.
For the central focus of the event (the tournament), Erhan Deniz will face Marian Baryla of Poland in one semi-final and Wendell Roche will face Andrei Bokan of Estonia in the other. This is probably the weakest field out of the four SuperKombat "World Grand Prix" tournaments this year, with Deniz and Roche being the only notables, neither of them being highly regarded. Erhan Deniz was surprisingly competitive with Daniel Ghita for a round, but then proceeded to get demolished in the second. Roche is coming off a win over Yuksel Ayadin at It's Showtime's Lyon event on May 14.
In other action on the card, Bogdan Stoica returns from a leg injury to fight Dutch based fighter Leon Midiema. What's interesting is the fight is at 92 kg, suggesting Stoica may have ballooned up a little bit during time off due to injury. He usually fights below 90 kg. Also on the card is Romanian fighter Sebastien Ciobanu, who fights Cengiz Ozpamuk of Turkey along with K-1 veteran Catalin Morosanu slated to be on the card against a to be announced opponent. And if you really care, Bob Sapp will be fighting Alexandru Lungu in a fight where the ring just might collapse. Full fight card below:
The event will be broadcast live on Eurosport, ProTV and on www.sport.ro.
