Germany-based promotion Mix Fight Championship (formerly known as Mix Fight Gala) holds its next event this Saturday June 22 in Kassel, Germany.
The organization is known for promoting entertaining fight cards with quality international talent, and Saturday’s event is no exception.
German K-1 legend Stefan “Blitz” Leko returns to the ring after a lengthy layoff. Leko faces old rival Marinko Neimarevic, who Leko defeated back in 2012.
British bruiser James McSweeney is a familiar face to Mix Fight Championship viewers. Last year, he won kickboxing bouts against Farouz Fakari and former It’s Showtime champion Danyo Ilunga by stoppage at MFC events.
On Saturday, McSweeney returns to mixed martial arts, where he is also an accomplished competitor. He’ll face Iran’s Hatef Moeil in a MFC MMA heavyweight title fight.
In an 80 kg kickboxing title elimination bout, Germany’s Sergej Braun meets Juri de Sousa of Portugal. de Sousa is coming off a win against Selahattin Sahin of Turkey at the Enfusion gala in Darmstadt, Germany last month.
Here is the fight card (subject to change).
Fans can catch the action on the FightBox HD channel. If your satellite or cable company doesn’t offer FightBox HD, you can still tune in via a Filmbox Live subscription.
