FightBox’s KOK Heroes Series - LIVE from Riga, Latvia 23.02.2019


FightBox is proud to announce that King of Kings, one of the most recognizable brands in kickboxing, will return to live action from Riga, Latvia on Saturday February 23rd 2019 starting at 6:00 pm CET (7:00 pm in Latvia).

King of Kings is back on FightBox HD from the Latvian capital of Riga. This will be the first event of 2019 for the promotion, but certainly not the last, as there could be as many as twenty or more events from the kickboxing giant this year.

In the main event, the KOK European Championship is on the line at -85 kilos when Holland’s Mike Sprangh of the notorious Mike’s Gym faces Jurijs Orlovs of Latvia for the title. Sprangh is one of KOK’s top middleweight fighters and is currently ranked fourth in the division. One year ago he fought Raimonds Aukstikalnis to an extra round in the finals of the KOK Middleweight WGP and lost a razor thin decision. Now he faces the young Orlovs, a rising star who is ranked fifth. Both men have a chance at proving who the top dog is in the middleweight division. Aukstikalnis is on the card himself against England’s Reon Wong as the Latvian tries to keep a tight grip on his number one ranking in the division. Two MMA fights are also on the card as well as a ladies boxing match at -54 kilos. The full fight card for the evening can be seen below.
