King of Kings made its tenth appearance in the Estonian capital city of Tallinn this past Saturday for one of the biggest tournaments the promotion has hosted in many years. The main attraction was an eight-man welterweight WGP tournament with the winner earning a title opportunity against current KOK World Welterweight Champion Chico Kwasi. KOK newcomer Mahmud Giahi won all three of his fights, knocking out all of his opponents. Number 1 ranked KOK welterweight Raimondas Avlasevicius was supposed to have fought Giahi in the finals, but due to an injury was not allowed to participate any further and was replaced by Estonia’s Marko Sults.
