“Golden Belt” annual awards to be held on December 5

At the end of one of the most challenging years in recent times, when sports got a major setback due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Bulgarian National Association of Combat Sports has once again found a way to pay respect and give their credit to the martial artists. The third annual awards “Golden Belt” will take place this Saturday night (December 5th) from 8:00 p.m. EET.

Because of all the health restrictions that are being imposed in Bulgaria, the ceremony will take place in a TV studio and will be broadcasted live on Bulgaria ON AIR and on the websites www.boec.bg and www.boec.com.

A total of five major awards will be given: Best male athlete, Best female athlete, Best coach, Finest victory, and Allegiance to traditions. Every single one of the 12 federations that are part of the Bulgarian National Association of Combat Sports will also have the chance to award their best fighters.

Bulgaria’s number 1 website for martial arts and combat sports – Boec.BG will also honor the most deserving professional fighter for the last 12 months with a special award.

The first edition of the “Golden Belt” awards took place in 2018 on the initiative by the chairman of KWU’s Professional League and the Bulgarian National Association of Combat Sports Shihan Ivo Kamenov.
