Colosseum Tournament, one of the leading promotions in Romania, returns with its latest event Friday in the city of Calarasi.
Nine bouts are scheduled, including two title fights.
Romanian rivals reunite in a battle for the organization’s heavyweight (+95 kg) title.
Last month, Costin Mincu built an early lead in his heavyweight tournament final bout with Marius Munteanu. Munteanu rallied late, but the judges awarded the decision and title to Mincu.
Some of the fans booed the decision after it was announced. Newly crowned champ Mincu told the FightBox announcer he’d give Munteanu a rematch, and the fighters will have a quick return bout less than two months after their first encounter.
In the other title bout, Cosmin Ionescu defends his Colosseum Tournament 86 kg Title against Serbia’s Milos Cvetitanin. Ionescu has made quick work of his last two opponents in Colosseum competition, with first-round stoppage wins over Marius Hetea and Robert Burtea.
The full fight card is below. The event is being broadcast internationally on the FightBox HD channel, and Digisport will televise in Romania.
