KOK returns to Lithuania this Saturday November 17 for another big event at the Siemens Arena in Vilnius. The promotion released the official fight card.
As previously mentioned, Lithuanian fan favorite Sergej “Kuvalda” Maslobojev faces newcomer Fatih Mehmet Karakus of Turkey in the main event.
Maslobojev stopped Noureddine Ajnaou of Morocco in less than a round at KOK 55 in March. The “Sledge Hammer” followed up with decision wins over Antonio Plazibat and Florent Kaouachi in the One Super Series. Karakus faces a big challenge fighting the popular Maslobojev in front of a big crowd in his hometown.
Another talented Lithuanian fighter Henrikas Viksraitis is also scheduled for action. Viksraitis is coming back from surgery after sustaining a facial injury during his bout with Nicolas Mendes Be at KOK 58 in London. Viksraitis used his boxing skills to get the better of the British fighter and earn a decision. He faces Andreas Mavropoulos of Greece.
KOK World Series Slovakia 71 kg tournament champion Vladimir “The Terminator” Konsky faces young Lithuanian prospect Jan Naus. Muay Thai standout Sigitas Gaizauskas also sees action.
Turkish veteran Erkan Varol, who is also a promoter in his native Turkey, faces Arvydas Gerve. Varol fought in the 77 kg tournament at KOK 60 in Estonia on late notice, and returns to his natural weight division.
Here are the fight cards. The events are available for viewing on the FightBox HD channel and the KOK Fights TV Platform. All bouts are under KOK rules unless otherwise listed. Fight cards subject to change!
