Banevicius Underdog at KOK Summer Special Edition

KOK promotional partner lists unbeaten Lithuanian teenager Lukas Banevicius the underdog in his match with Daniel Szott, a more experienced kickboxer from Poland.

Banevicius faces Szott in a featured bout at Sunday’s KOK Summer Special Edition taking place in Kaunas, Lithuania (Broadcast; FightBox HD, KOK Fights TV).

Both fighters competed at last month’s KOK Classic event. Banevicius, just 18 years of age, improved to 3-0 with a unanimous decision over Simonas Raskauskas. Representing the Fighting & Fitness Center, the youngster landed some solid punches on Raskauskas to earn the victory.

Szott (6-3-1) showed a tricky style, good stamina, and a solid punch in a draw versus popular prospect Dovydas Rimkus. The Garuda Muay Thai gym fighter didn’t allow Rimkus to establish a rhythm, and stunned the Lithuanian with punches in the final round.

Szott’s greater experience and impressive performance against Rimkus are likely the reasons he’s a favorite with bookmakers. He’s currently listed at 1.60 (-167 in American Odds) compared to 2.20 (+120) for Banevicius.

Sunday’s KOK Summer Special Edition event is headlined by a four-round boxing match between 2012 Olympian Evaldas Petrauskas and Lukas Lescickij. Petrauskas is heavily favored at 1.23 (-435) to defeat Lescickij (3.75/+ 275).

CBet lists odds for two additional matches. Female fighting sensation Ernesta Kareckaite (1.35/-286) is expected to prevail against Estonia’s Sigrid Kapanen (2.95/+195).

Dovydas Levickis (1.65, -154) is the favorite against Oleg Moshin (2.10, +110).

Thirteen bouts in all are scheduled at Sunday’s KOK Summer Special Edition 2020. The action begins at 7 p.m. local Lithuania time, which is 5 p.m. in London and 12 p.m. in New York.
