Video: SFL Warriors’ Anup Kumar vs. Irfan Khan promo clip

The Super Fight League is set to showcase its first series of fights for the calendar year in April.

Officials recently announced “SFL Warriors”, a new initiative launched in line with its partnership with BodyPower India.

Three back-to-back installments of “SFL Warriors” are expected to kick-start on YouTube, with post produced episodes slated for the 11th, 18th and 25th of April.

The bout order for the first episode (which takes place LIVE on March 30th at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon, Mumbai) is complete with six high profile match-ups, headed by a Lightweight title rematch between reigning champ Pawan Maan Singh (4-1) and challenger, Rajinder Singh Meena (7-1).

Another riveting tilt on the line-up sees Flyweights Anup Kumar and Irfan Khan on a collision course.

Kumar (6-2) is a former Bantamweight champion in the promotion, who will be making his 125-lbs debut against Khan. After starting his career with a 4-1 record, which included the capture of the Bantamweight strap at SFL 13, Kumar loss the belt in his first title defense against Tom McKenna. Since then, he’s racked up two consecutive stoppage victories, and has looked hungrier than ever.

Khan (7-1) was Fight Sport Asia’s 2013 Fighter of the Year. He opened his career tally with a 6-0 resume, soon establishing himself as a poster-boy of sorts for the promotion. After suffering a shock defeat to Khwaja Mohibsa at SFL 23, the talented Indian grappler rebounded with a third round submission victory last October.
