Kunlun Fight 58 is set for this weekend on March 11th in Rome, Italy.
The event will feature two 4-man qualifying tournaments for their 70 kg world championship tournament later in the year.
In the first 4-man tournament we will see former Glory champion Davit Kiria vs. Jonay Risco and Clayton Henriques vs. Li Zhuangzhuang. The second 4-man tournament will feature 2016’s winner Superbon Banchamek vs. Edye Ruiz and Vasile Lazar vs. Lui Lei.
The two big names in these tournaments are Davit Kiria and Superbon. Kiria has been a regular on the promotion since leaving Glory, but has not been able to breakthrough for Kunlun Fight. He is 5-5 in his last 10 fights, and most recently lost a decision to Jomthong Chuwattana at Kunlun Fight 56.
Superbon has been on fire as of late, having won his last 10 fights. Among those wins are victories over current Glory lightweight champion Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, Canadian standout Sean Kearney, Jomthong, and Andrei Kulebin. His most recent victory was a third round knockout at Kunlun Fight 56 over Jomthong to win the 2016 world championship tournament. He has to be the favorite to win it again this year, he has looked phenomenal as of late.
