SUPERKOMBAT: New Heroes in Ploiesti, Romania set with eight bouts

SUPERKOMBAT is back for its first event of the 2014 season with ‘SUPERKOMBAT: New Heroes’ at the Olimpia Sports Hall in Ploiesti, Romania on March 29th.

This event will be broadcasted LIVE on in Romania starting 9:30 PM EET, and on Eurosport, Eurosport HD and Eurosport Asia-Pacific in more than 80 countries from five continents starting from 8:30 PM CET.

The headlining contest sees a showdown between former Cruiserweight world champ Bogdan Stoica (14-3-0) and Jorge Loren (89-12-4) from Spain. A battle for pride ensues between both fighters, who are coming off defeats to the same opponent in current world champ, Igor Bugaenko.

In the co-main event, the SUPERKOMBAT: New Heroes Middleweight title will be up for grabs. The champion Cedric Manhoef (37-1-1) will defend his belt against the hometown kid, Amansio Paraschiv (8-1-0), who was born and raised in Ploiesti.

Also on the card is a rematch between WAKO Lightweight champ, Ionut “Pitbull” Atodiresei (32-7-0) and Greek, Stauros Exakoustidis (27-6-0). Atodiresei looks to even the odds after “Nirvana” won by KO in the second round of their first tussle last year at the SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix event held Craiova, Romania.

“We will diversify the weight divisions for the Superkombat World Grand Prix series and we will have a four man contender tournament with the winners becoming challengers for the world title,” said SUPERKOMBAT president Eduard Irimia, who also announced that SUPERKOMBAT: New Heroes from Ploiesti will be a pilot edition that aims to help implement a new system for this season.
