The King of Kings organization (KOK) in collaboration with Mr. Erkan Varol return to Sakarya, Turkey Friday for another evening of world-class kickboxing.
Twelve exciting bouts are scheduled, including a special challenge featuring fighters from Team Sam-Rad in Turkey against French opponents, and six additional super fights.
Headlining the fight card is a WKU Europe title bout between Masoud Minaei and Kevin Hessling.
Iran’s Minaei is a high-level fighter who has competed for top international promotions including KOK, Kunlun Fight, and Glory. He’s won both his fights in KOK this year, with a unanimous decision against Yusuf Memedov and a second-round stoppage over Poland’s Kamil Pawlak.
Hessling fights out of Melvin Manhoef’s gym in the Netherlands. The Dutch fighter has also competed for top organizations, and defeated Glory contender Stoyan Koprivienski by unanimous decision in 2017.
Unbeaten Turkish fighter Ahmet Kilic returns to the KOK ring. Kilic improved to 11-0 at the last KOK event in Sakarya with a knockout win in just 37 seconds. Kilic faces Iran’s Madmoud Sattari.
In a heavyweight bout, “The Rock” Burak Durgun looks for his third consecutive win in KOK competition. The tough Turkish fighter faces Alisher Pulatov of Uzbekistan.
Here is the fight card, subject to change.
The KOK World Series in Sakarya event is being broadcast exclusively on pay-per-view on the KOK Fights TV streaming platform. Fans who purchase the broadcast prior to the day of the event receive an “early bird” discount.
