After a big gala in Moscow in April, ACB Kickboxing returns with its latest event Friday. ACB KB 16: Clash of the Titans takes place in Targoviste, Romania. The event will be streamed live and free on the ACB TV YouTube channel.
Romanian fan favorite Andrei Stoica headlines the card against Donegi Abena of Suriname. Stoica is best known for competing in Superkombat, where he was a super cruiserweight champion. Stoica has also competed for K-1, Glory, and the W5 promotion. Abena trains under the legendary Mike Passenier at Mike’s Gym in the Netherlands, and a victory over Stoica will make him a better known fighter and could lead to bigger opportunities.
Albert Kraus, the Dutch legend who won the first ever K-1 Max tournament, faces Adsalam Barkinhoev of the Russian Federation. French contender Djibril “Grizzly” Ehouo, who recently challenged for the Bellator title, will meet Adelin Mihaila of Romania.
Dutch fighters Max Van Gelder and Damian Johansen are also scheduled to compete in separate bouts. Tough Islam Khozhdevdiev returns to the ACB ring against Nino Pattvean of Romania. Cibu Adrian and Alexe Claudiu meet in an all Romanian battle.
Here is the complete lineup. The fight card is subject to change.
