News: The Return of Catalin Morosanu, Adegbuyi Update,Artem Vakhitov Opponent Announced


Morosanu Returns Against Kemayo July 5 at Dynamite Fighting Show
There are few heavyweights in the kickboxing world as entertaining as heavyweight contender Catalin Morosanu. The Romanian star carries a big punch both inside and outside the ring. Whether it’s brawling his way to another victory or doing an interview to hype up an event, very few fighters have Morosanu’s charisma. It’s not a surprise Morosanu is a huge star in his native country, even competing in Romania’s version of “Dancing with the Stars”.

Morosanu has been quiet as of late in the fight game. He was scheduled to face Oklahoma’s Haze Wilson at GLORY 50 in Chicago, but withdrew due to injury. The good news is “Carpathian Death” will be returning to the ring soon. Morosanu is scheduled to face French veteran Freddy Kemayo in the main event of the Dynamite Fighting Championship event July 5 in Bucharest. Freddy most recently fought at the inaugural Zhara Fight event, losing a KOK Europe title fight by decision to Zabit Samedov.

GLORY heavyweight contender Benjamin Adegbuyi is also scheduled for action on the card. Adegbuyi will look to stay sharp before his September 15 showdown with fellow contender Jamal “The Goliath” Ben Saddik at GLORY 58 in Chicago. There’s also a kyokushin karate showdown between European champion Catalin Mocanu of Romania against Eldar Ismailov of Ukraine.

Vakhitov Defends Against Ilunga
GLORY light heavyweight king Artem Vakhitov now has an opponent for his title defense August 10 at GLORY 56 in Denver. Vakhitov will defend his belt against German-Congolese veteran Danyo Ilunga.

Vakhitov has been inactive since a unanimous decision victory over Ariel Machado at GLORY 47 in October. The Russian power puncher injured his hand and has been on the shelf. Ilunga recently defeated British up and comer Fraser Weightman by unanimous decision at GLORY 54 in Birmingham. “Dibuba” Ilunga, 60-13(45), has won three straight bouts and seeks to avenge a previous decision defeat from 2015.

Pavel Zhuravlev, the interim light heavyweight champion, is currently injured so he was unavailable to unify the title against Vakhitov. If Vakhitov prevails against Ilunga, the unification battle will likely take place at a later date.
