Bellator Kickboxing in association with Italian promoter Oktagon present Bellator Kickboxing 10 on Saturday in Rome, Italy. The event is topped by a highly anticipated 70kg clash between living legend Giorgio Petrosyan of Italy and Chingiz Allazov, who hails from Belarus but is of Azerbaijani descent.
Both men have had storied careers. Petrosyan,33, won the 2009 and 2010 K-1 Max tournaments, as well as the Glory 70kg Slam tournament in 2012. The talented Italian-Armenian has not lost a bout since a stunning stoppage loss to Suriname’s Andy Ristie in 2013.
The 25-year-old Allazov is a defending K-1 champion, winning the title in an eight man tournament in June 2017. Allazov has also competed for many recognized promotions including Glory, K-1, Kunlun Fight, and ACB.
Kevin Ross of the USA will defend his title against Canada’s Gabriel Varga, a K-1 veteran and former Glory champion.
