Earlier today, SUPERKOMBAT announced the official line-up for their second World Grand Prix event of the year set to take place on May 18 in Craiova, Romania. The card features the likes of Romanian icon Catalin Morosanu, Benjamin Adegbuyi, and Sebastian Ciobanu.
In the main attraction of the evening, Dancing with the Stars Romania winner and one of the most well-loved Romanian sports stars of the last decade, Catalin Morosanu, steps in the ring against Eduardo Mendes. Morosanu is coming off a decision loss to former SUPERKOMBAT GP winner Pavel Zhuravlev at the K-1 World Grand Prix in Zagreb, Croatia and will be looking to rebound in front of a home-crowd.
Also on the card, 2012 Superkombat World GP finalist Benjamin Adegbuyi will be making his return against the massive Jairzhino Rozenstriuk. Rozenstruik most recently suffered a contestable defeat to SUPERKOMBAT HEROES Oradea winner Muamer Tufekcic, while Adegbuyi is trying to make a statement after his last opponent suffered a bizarre leg injury thirty seconds in their match.
As always, the heavyweight World Grand Prix is composed of two semi-final tournament bouts, followed by a final later in the night. The Craiova tournament features several big names, including Frank Munoz taking on Nikolaj Falin, and Sebastian Ciobanu squaring off against Vladimir Toktasynov.
