Bellator Kickboxing hold its first event of 2019 this Saturday October 12 in Milan.
The Bellator Kickboxing 12 fight card is headlined by a title fight between reigning Bellator KB World Featherweight Champion Gabriel Vargas and challenger Cristian Faustino.
Canada’s Vargas is making the second defense of the title he snatched from Kevin Ross by first-round KO at Bellator 10 in July 2018. In his first defense, Varga also scored a first-round stoppage against Italy’s Shan Cangelosi at Bellator Kickboxing 11 last December.
Ross and Cangelosi are also in action Saturday. The contenders meet in a featherweight bout preceding the co-main event between Chingiz Allazov and Sudsakorn.
Allazov is returning to Bellator Kickboxing after signing a contract with the organization. The Belarus-based fighter challenged Italian legend Giorgio Petrosyan at Bellator 10, losing a unanimous decision. The Petrosyan loss snapped Allazov’s 28-fight unbeaten streak.
The Allazov-Sudsakorn bout will be fought with a maximum weight limit of 158 lbs (71.66 kg).
Full fight card below.
Fans can catch the action live and free on the Bellator App, available via the Google and Apple app stores.
The start time for the broadcast is 11:00 a.m EST/8 a.m. PST
