On Thursday, Aug. 4, French kickboxing promotion Fight Night Saint Tropez returned to the La Citadelle de St Tropez for Fight Night Saint Tropez IV.
The main event of the evening featured top-10 ranked welterweight Yohan Lidon, who faced former WLF champion Danijel Solaja. The Frenchman had won eight straight including impressive victories over Diogo Calado, Bernueng, Panom and Datsi Datsiev. Lidon landed a devastating head kick against former top-10 welterweight Karapet Karapetyan to earn his place in the knockout of the year discussion.
In the co-main event, Tomas Mozny came out victorious in the finals of the four-man, one-night super heavyweight tournament. In one semifinal bout, top ranked heavyweight Thomas Vanneste fought Daniel “El Oso” Perez. In the other semifinal, GLORY veterans battled when Slovakian heavyweight Tomas Mozny fought the United Kingdom’s Daniel Sam. Vanneste upset top-five heavyweight Errol Zimmerman at GLORY 26 in December of 2015. Mozny needed an extra round to defeat Cihad Kepenek in his most recent outing at GLORY 29. Sam has won two straight since dropping a decision to Xavier Vigney at GLORY 23. Diego ‘Monster’ dos Santos was the super heavyweight tournament reserve fighter.
The event aired live at 3 p.m. ET on L’ÉQUIPE 21.
