The King of Kings organisation updated the fight card for the KOK Classic 3, taking place on 26 September at Siemens Arena in Vilnius, Lithuania (Broadcasting on FightBox HD & KOK Fights TV).
Opponents are now official for young Lithuanian prospects Lukas Banevicius and Dovydas Rimkus.
The popular Rimkus meets Richard Zeimanis, a Latvian fighter making his KOK debut. Banevicius (4-0) meanwhile, looks to remain unbeaten after an impressive win against the more-experienced Daniel Szott last month.
Two notable prospects from Latvia have been added to the card. Shamil Dzamaldaev (2-0), a former amateur champion, was impressive in winning a decision against Samuelis Sorochovas at the first KOK Classic in June.
Teammate Aleksandr Cerkesov is also a well-regarded young fighter. The two youngsters fight out of the Muay Thai Academy in Riga, Latvia alongside KOK lightweight contender Mareks “The Dreamkiller” Pelcis.
Eighteen bouts in all are scheduled for the event, which features KOK Rules Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, and professional boxing. 2012 Olympian Evaldas Petrauskas faces fellow unbeaten Semjon Kamanin for the Dream Boxing Baltic Title in the main event.
The KOK Classic 3 also includes a fight for the MMA Bushido 71 kg Title. Lithuanians Zygimantas Ramaska and Osvald Fedorovic collide for the belt.
Because of Lithuanian government restrictions related to combat sports, the kickboxing matches will be fought with two minute rounds.
