In total, warriors from 12 different countries will try to get their ticket for SUPERKOMBAT® World Grand Prix – Final, scheduled on 21st of December in Galati, Romania.
Broadcasted in more than 70 countries around 4 continents, the event scheduled for 9th of November will rebrand the Final Elimination system. “For this year, we decided to make the Final Elimination with all new heroes discovered in 2013. We will have the winners of SUPERKOMBAT® World Grand Prix tournament, excepting Sebastian Ciobanu, injured, and we offered also wild-cards for other newcomers”, said Eduard Irimia.
Eight fighters, including Muamer Tufekcic (SUPERKOMBAT® World Grand Prix – Oradea winner), D’Angelo Marshall (SUPERKOMBAT® World Grand Prix – Botosani winner) and Jegish Yegoian (SUPERKOMBAT® World Grand Prix – Giurgiu winner), but also a new prospect, Giannis Stoforidis (SUPERKOMBAT® Tryouts – Athens winner) are attending the event.
Undefeated since 2008, Ondrej Hutnik, one of the top fighters of super cruiserweight division will face French Massinissa Hamaili in the eliminatory title fight. The winner will take the second spot for SUPERKOMBAT® world title after the first one was taken by Andrei Stoica, the winner of the first eliminatory fight on December 2012, when he knocked-out Arnold Oborotov.
In the second eliminatory fight of the night, Igor Bugaenko (Belarus) and Jorge Loren (Spain) will try to become the official challenger of Superkombat cruiserweight champion Bogdan Stoica. Only one of them will be the opponent of “The Bad Boy” on 21st December and Loren is confident. “I know Bugaenko has much experience, but I have better skills so I’m sure I will be the winner in the end of the war”, said Jorge Loren.
After a 11 months break, Raul “Iron” Catinas is set for his comeback in SUPERKOMBAT® and, on 9th of November, he will fight in the co-main-event against Ricardo Van Den Bos.
