Lithuanian lightweight contender Jan Naus has been added to the stacked KOK 84 fight card taking place on 14 March in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Naus, currently the eighth-ranked 71 kg fighter in KOK, has been involved in some tough battles recently in the KOK ring.
He lost a close, extra-round decision to Slovakian Denis Farkas in the lightweight contender tournament at the KOK World Series 2018 in Slovakia, then faced current number-one contender Mareks Pelcis in Riga. Pelcis was too sharp for Naus, who showed his grit and toughness but lost a decision.
Naus rebounded with an impressive decision victory over KOK Slovakia GP winner Vladimir “The Terminator” Konsky in his next fight at the KOK World Series in Vilnius.
In his last bout, Naus drew with Finnish contender Lauri “Good Boy” Suomela at KOK 69.
The Sparta Gym fighter will be looking for a win in his KOK return after a one-year absence. His opponent is to be announced.
