Promoter TNA Fights today released the fight card for the next Tatneft Cup event.
The Tatneft Cup 1/8 finals fourth stage takes place on 11 June at the Tatneft Arena in the city of Kazan in the Russian Federation. A couple of well-known Tatneft Cup veterans return.
Sher Mamazulunov, a two-time Tatneft World Cup champion, returns to the event. The Uzbekistan fighter defeated GLORY veteran Jonatan Oliveira to win a four-man -77 kg tournament at the Fair Fight 7 event in February, and become that organization’s inaugural champion.
Mamazulunov meets Bilal Bahuse of France.
Vladislav Ukrainets made it to last year’s final, but lost an extra round decision to 2018 champion Youssef Assouik. Ukrainets returns to face Armenia’s Jora Hakobyan in a -70 kg bout.
Here is the fight card (subject to change).
The event will be broadcast with English-language commentary by the FightBox HD channel.
