This Saturday night, the King of Kings organisation makes its return to Tallinn, Estonia. Fighters from 6 different countries are scheduled to compete in the 13-bout event, which features matches under KOK Kickboxing and MMA Bushido rules.
KOK 89 in Tallinn is broadcasting live and worldwide via Fight Box HD (streams via the Film Box app) and KOK Fights TV. The action begins at 7 pm local Tallinn time, which is 5 pm in London and twelve noon in New York City.
Vorovski Meets Iversen
An intriguing middleweight match up tops the bill. Top Estonian fighter Maxim “Max” Vorovski meets Andreas “Andy Candy” Iversen of Norway.
Vorovski turned pro in The Netherlands and has fought on the international level. A veteran of nearly 40 professional bouts, he holds wins over former It’s Showtime champion Sahak Parparyan and former title challenger Ertugrul Bayrak.
Iversen moves up to middleweight after an impressive showing at KOK 60. The Norwegian used his height and reach advantages to outpoint Turkish standout Erkan Varol in the welterweight contender tournament semifinals. He’ll be the taller man against Vorovski, who also previously competed at welterweight.
Remmer Battles Holmberg in Co-Main Event
KOK last visited Tallinn in October, 2020. Estonia’s Ott Remmer established himself as a contender in the organisation by winning the KOK 85 WGP tournament.
Remmer used a wicked inside low kick attack to defeat Lithuania’s Arnas Valiukaitis and Niko Korventaus of Finland. Neither opponent made it to the second round.
Holmberg returns after debuting at the KOK Hero’s Series event in Helsinki last year. He’ll look to pull the upset and avenge countryman Korventaus’s defeat.
Rimkenzo” Makes International Debut
Popular Lithuanian lightweight Dovydas “Rimkenzo” Rimkus also makes his international debut at KOK 89. Rimkus, who’s knocked out his last two opponents, faces Kristoffer Bjorkskog of Finland.
Two ladies kickboxing bouts are also scheduled for the KOK 89 main card. Sigrid Kapanen meets Astrid Johanna Grents in an all-Estonian battle, and Finland’s Miina Sirkeoja faces Okva Maarja.
KOK 89 Hero’s Series
The KOK 89 Hero’s Series kicks off the event. Four MMA Bushido rules matches and 3 kickboxing bouts are scheduled.
A match to keep an eye on is the kickboxing bout between WAK-1F European Champion Aleksandr Cerkesov of Latvia and Lithuania’s Danas Antanavicius.
