Kunlun Fight 80: Pay Day is shaping up to be an intriguing night of fights. The 70 kg Final Four is scheduled to take place at the event, and there is also an eight-man heavyweight tournament scheduled. British heavyweight Daniel Sam announced his participation today.
The tournament field includes Enfusion contender Martin “Paco” Pacas of Slovakia, Rade Opacic of Serbia, Sam, Liu Wei, hard-hitting Haime Morais of Brazil, and Asihati.
Roman Kryklia, last year’s runner-up, is also scheduled to compete. Kryklia was scheduled for a Tatneft Cup event on 21 February, but last week promoter TNA Fights announced he was not competing.
Iraj Azizpour of Iran won last year’s tournament by close decision over Kryklia.
Here are the match ups:
2018 KLF 100 + KG World Championship 1/4 Daniel Sam (Great Britain) vs Asihati (China)
