BELLATOR KICKBOXING – Petrosyan v. Watson
Bellator Kickboxing returns December 10, 2016, to Florence, Italy with the promotional debut of kickboxing superstar Georgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan (82-2-2). Petrosyan faces off against the U.K.’s Jordan “Quadzilla” Watson (48-11-2) in a bout that was originally schedule to take place back in April. Petrosyan comes into the fight riding a 6-fight winning streak, while Watson comes in having won 5 in a row.
Denise Kielholtz (45-3) will have a rematch with Gloria Peritore (11-1-1) for the inaugural Bellator Kickboxing female flyweight world championship.
And if that wasn’t enough, Joe “Stitch ‘Em Up” Schilling (19-9) will go toe-to-toe with Victorio Lermano (30-7) in a Middleweight matchup. Schilling looks to get back in the winner’s column as he comes off a spinning-backfist loss to Hisaki Kato.
Also, “The Soul Assassin” Kevin Ross – a 6-time champ and one of the most accomplished U.S. fighters in the game – faces off against local standout Alessio Arduini (26-14-2). And 10-time World Kickboxing Champion Karim “Gadjetboy” Ghajji will return to Italy after making his Bellator Kickboxing debut in Torino earlier this year
