Aleksandr Stetsurenko, Darryl Sichtman, Dmitry Valent, Massaro Glunder at Kunlunfight
At the time being the fighters of W5 rating grid are performing at Kunlunfight 55, another event of the famous Chinese promotion.
At the present time it is known that Alexander Stetsurenko of Russia, which in April 2016 won over the Dutchman Errol Koning and became W5 world champion in up to 81 kg category, has already won his semi-final of the world title four-man tournament up to 80 kg over Darryl Sihtman of the Netherlands, who is also regular participant of peofessional fighting shows under W5 rules.
In the final of the pyramid Stetsurenko will fight Dmitry Valent, a representative of the Republic of Belarus, who also is multiple times participant of the W5 events. On the way to the final Valent defeated Moroccan Hicham El Gaoui.
Once upon a time Sichtman by himself said that he not always makes the best performance in the weight division up to 80 kg. For example, recently this year Dutch athlete was defeated by Slovakian Vladimir Idranyi in this weight. I turn for Alexander Stetsurenko the weight up to 80 kg is more natural and familiar as close to his actual weight. On the other hand, one should say that Idranyi, Sichtman and Stetsurenko are top fighters, the outcome of the match between them can always be solved by any nuance.
Also tonight the current W5 European champion in the weight up to 72.5 kg Massaro Glunder, a young apprentice of Mike Passenier, who beat twice Austrian Foad Sadeghi in title bouts, specially lifting up of several categories above for this bouts, will fight Chinese opponent Zhang Chunyu. The fight will take place in more natural for Glunder category up to 67 kg.
Finally, we should mention that tonight, far from China and much closer to Moscow, another one Mike Passenier fighter and apprentice, who is well known to fans of kickboxing world wide, will try to take away the "Glory" Super heavy weight world champion title from the reigning Rico Verhoeven. Badr Hari, of course, he is that one, specially returns to the ring for this business. Perhaps, if he wins, the match will be the last professional fight for the world-famous Moroccan.
