After a successful debut in Sarkoy this past summer, KOK returns to Turkey this Saturday December 8 for its last show of the year. In collaboration with top Turkish fighter Erkan Varol, the card features a four woman tournament in the 60 kg weight category.
Irem Capar, the former amateur Muay Thai star, returns to the KOK ring as part of the tournament. Capar, then 18 years of age, defeated tough Malihe Mardi by decision at the Sarkoy event. She’ll face Elanur Yucel in a semifinal. In the other half of the bracket, Tugce Fedakarturk meets Ilknur Kurt. Fedakarturk had a good showing against Gizem Islam at the last Turkey event, where she won a decision. All four women hail from Turkey, so bragging rights for the best 60 kg female fighter in the country are on the line.
The rest of the card includes super fights, with fighters from Turkey, Azerbaijan, Libya, South Africa, and Uzbekistan.
Here is the fight card (subject to change).
Fans can catch the action live on FightBox HD, KOK Fights TV, or 365 Flix for fans in Australia, Canada, U.K., and the U.S.
All fights on this event are under KOK Rules.
