KOK Fights kicks off their 2018 season Saturday night in Riga, Latvia. The Moldova based promotion is one of Europe’s top promoters, and its events are televised on Fight Box, The Fight Channel, and other networks. This weekend’s event features a four man 71kg tournament with fighters from Holland, Poland, Moldova, and Latvia. Mike Sprangh, who fights out of Mike’s Gym, faces local Raimond Aukshtikalins in an 85kg bout. Both Sprangh and Aukshtikalins won their bouts at KOK 52 in Riga in December. Zaur Dzavadovs will look for a win before the hometown crowd against Moucine Chafi in the main event. Dzavadovs, who is of Azerbaijani descent, won the KOK 77kg title last year and defeated England’s Marcus Powell by decision in a non-title fight in December.
