Enfusion #84 in Darmstadt
Next up, the woman’s -67kg word title, Johanna Kruse from Germany defends her belt against former champion Sheena Widdershoven from the Netherlands. Both women know what it take’s to be a champion, which adds pressure on the 4th of May.
The next fight will be a heavyweight clash between Andte Schmeling from Germany and Gioannis ‘Hercules’ Stoforidis from Greece. Stoforidis is the more experienced fighter of the two, and due to his record (32 fights, 26 wins, which 14 came by way of KO) and titles he won, he could be considered favorite against Schmeling, who is fighting in front of his home fans and will be looking more than motivated and all buzzed up for the fight.
Another heavyweight clash follows as Houari ‘Karim’ Zeghad from France takes on Patrick ‘Big Swiss’ Schmid from Switzerland. Zeghad is a very dangerous fighter. The 24-year old (1.90 meters tall) Frenchman from Marseille won 15 of his 18 fights, which 8 came by way of KO. Schmid however, is the more experienced of the two. The 32-year old fought 52 times, with 38 wins, which off 25 (!) came by way of KO. The current ISKA European champion is also known for beating Errol Zimmerman, proving once more that he is a man to watch out for.
Next up, there will be a -67kg clash between Andrej ‘The Tiger’ Bruhl from Germany and Hamza ‘Soesi’ Essalih from Morocco in a prestigious fight. Bruhl has an impressive record of 94 fights, 81 wins, which 25 came by way of KO. The German fought all around the world at some of the biggest stages, winning titles all around. If his opponent wasn’t Hamza Soesi, he’d be considered favorite, but Soesi is a shark himself. The multiple Dutch, European and World champion is a very dangerous fighter with an attacking style, fighting forward. It is proven he has the best tactics, as it resulted in 55 wins, 49 wins and just 4 losses (2 draws). The man from ‘de Pijp’ in Amsterdam always comes to fight.
In the -70kg division Nordin Ben Moh from Morocco will face Abdelnour AliKada from France. Ben Moh really doesn’t need that much of an introduction, as the Belgiun Moroccan has built a great legacy at Enfusion throughout the years, winning against the biggest of names in his league. With a record of 92 fights, 85 (!) wins, which 46 (!) came by way of KO, there is nothing more to be said about this dangerous 30-year-old. In the other corner, there will be the 20-year-old Alikada, a fighter who earned himself the spot in this fight by his winning streak. Alikada is also a fighter with an attractive, attacking style, which led to his 31 wins and 22 knock-outs.
We finish the night with the final of the heavyweight tournament. The winners of the earlier heavyweight fights will take each other on.
