On Saturday, Oct. 8, W5 Kickboxing continued their European tour in the Czech Republic with W5 Grand Prix “Legends in Prague”.
In the main event of the evening, two of Europe’s top 95-kilogram fighters clashed for positioning outside of the division’s top-10 rankings. Former WKN champion Tomáš Hron fought Superkombat super cruiserweight champion Andrei Stoica. Hron holds wins over top heavyweights Jahfarr Wilnis, Anderson “Braddock” Silva, Errol Zimmerman and Igor Bugaenko. Stoica recently fell out of the top-10 light heavyweight rankings due to losses against Jorge Loren and Mladen Kujundžić.
In the co-main event of the evening, Ondřej Hutník returned to W5 against 2012 Superkombat World GP champion Cătălin Moroşanu. Hutník rides a seven-fight winning streak heading into his 87th professional fight against the popular Romanian slugger. Moroşanu recently fell victim to top-10 heavyweight Zabit Samedov at Akhmat Fight Show in August.
The W5 75-kilogram title was on the line when four fighters competed in a one-night tournament to determine the new champion. In the tournament semifinals, former It’s Showtime and W5 world champion Cosmo Alexandre took on Tatneft Cup champion Darryl Sichtman and Czech kickboxer Matous Kohout fought Germany’s Berat Aliu.
In the evening’s main card action, top welterweight Vladimír Moravčík dropped a decision against Azerbaijani prospect Alim Nabiev for the W5 European welterweight title. Top Russian kickboxing prospect Vlad Tuinov fought Turkey’s Erkan Varol for the W5 European 71-kilogram title. Top heavyweights clashed when France’s Freddy Kemayo met Czech Republic’s Jan Soukop and Moroccan Ibragim El Bouni fought K-1 veteran Dževad Poturak.
The event aired live at 12:00 p.m. ET on W5kickTV.
