SENSHI 8: The third part of the battle card

The next edition of SENSHI awaits us. The international fight nights will offer 10 exciting battles for the SENSHI belts under the KWU Full Contact and KWU SENSHI rules.

Fighters from 11 countries will fight for glory in Sofia, which will be broadcast live, both for Bulgaria – on Max Sport 1, Bulgaria ON AIR, and Boec.BG, and for the whole world – live on Boec.com, on the American online TV FITE, Kwunion.com, and Kyokushin Karate News.

An entirely international fight between Russia and Portugal will mark the 9th fight of the upcoming SENSHI 8 fight night this Saturday night in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Russia’s Andrei Chekhonin will be facing Portugal’s Ricardo Fernandes in a fight conducted under the KWU Full Contact rules n the -85 kg category.

Fernandes is a world and European K-1 kickboxing champion. He’s also an Iberic kickboxing champion.

Chekhonin is a WAKO and WAKO PRO world champ and a 2015 Tatneft Cup silver medalist. The Russian is a second dan black belt in karate Kyokushin and has won over 50 trophies in his stellar career.

Two of the best Bulgarian fighters will be put the cherry on top of the cake this Saturday night. Dimitar Penchev, who represents  SC “Scorpion” from Pleven, will square off against Petar Stoykov from SC “Armeec”.

The two will fight for the European WAKO PRO belt, which Stoykov captured at SENSHI 7 in February.

Even though WAKO PRO doesn’t make fights between two fighters from the same country for a European title, this one has all the ingredients for one of the best SENSHI fights so far. Penchev (-66.8 kg) is the European champion in the low-kick style, while Stoykov (-69,1 kg) owns the gold in the K-1 style.

The fight will be conducted under the KWU Full Contact rules in the -70 kg category.
