Former Glory lightweight champion Davit Kiria qualified for the Kunlun Fight 70kg tournament quarterfinals with a decision win over Anatoly Moiseev Sunday at Kunlun Fight 75. The hard-hitting Kiria knocked Moiseev down with a right hand in the first round and won a unanimous decision to advance to the Final 8.
Kunlun Fight asked Kiria about the future, and he mentioned an opponent he’d like to face next: Jonay Risco. Risco, the Enfusion champion, successfully defended his title with a decision win over Kiria at the Enfusion 66 in Tenerife in May. Risco’s win avenged a previous unanimous decision loss to Kiria at Kunlun Fight 58 in 2017.
“In future, I want to fight Risco,” Kiria told the interviewer.
“Because I had two times fight. Once I win, one they take from me. I think they screw me because I think I win.So I want to, next fight, fight Risco and win against him.”
