ACB KB released the fight card for their upcoming event on August 5.
ACB KB 17: Land of Great Victories takes place in the historic city of Pskov in Western Russia.
Former ACB heavyweight champion Jhonata Diniz is scheduled to face Mikhail Tuterev of the Russian Federation. The tough Diniz, from the legendary fight town of Curitiba, Brazil, lost his crown to Tsotne Rugava by decision at ACB KB 15. The Glory veteran will look to get back in contention with a win over Tuterev.
In another match up, Vitaly Gurkov (Vitaly Hurkou) of Belarus will oppose Jonathan Oliveira of Brazil. Gurkov won an 8 man 75kg tournament at KunLun Fight 66 last November. The veteran has also held a WBC Muay Thai title, and competed in K-1, the Tatneft Cup, and other major events. Gurkov was an English language commentator for FightBox HD at last week’s ACB KB 16 event. Oliveira fought at ACB KB 15 in April, where he lost a unanimous decision to Alexander Stetsurenko.
Dutch fighter Damian Johansen returns to the ACB ring after a victory at ACB 16 last week in Romania.
Here is the line up.
