Japanese sensation Miyahara returns to SENSHI 15 against Uzbekistan’s Akhmedov

Japanese sensation Jo Miyahara returns to the stage at SENSHI 15 to take on Uzbek heavyweight Murod Akhmedov. They arrive in Varna on February 18 with the ambition to compete in the KWU Full Contact style.

Miyahara knocked out Patryk Krzyzostaniak in the previous 14th edition of the tournament already in the second round, so the Bulgarian public will surely expect more of the same.

However, Akhmedov arrives with serious success in karate. He is a 6-time national champion of Uzbekistan, and in the professional ring, he has 12 wins (6 knockouts), 2 losses, and 1 draw, although he is only 21 years old.

The height advantage is also on Murod’s side, so the predictions are for a spectacular fight between two outstanding masters of combat sports.

Tickets for SENSHI 15 are now on sale and can be purchased from network.

The fight card of SENSHI 15 will feature 16 gladiatorial fights between elite fighting stars from 18 countries under KWU Senshi and KWU Full Contact rules, with the first time seeing the heated arena and matches under KWU Open rules.
