Diogo Neves and Žiga Pečnik are two of the emblems of SENSHI, and for this reason the expectations for a spectacular battle between them at the 15th edition of the tournament are extremely high.
The 34-year-old Portuguese last took to the ring of SENSHI 14, where he offered a gladiator fight to Atanas Bozhilov, but ultimately fell on the judges’ cards against the Bulgarian. However, this does not change the facts that Neves is the WAKO K-1 World Champion since 2011, European Full Contact Champion since the same year and two-time ISKA World Champion since 2016.
Pečnik’s business card is even more impressive. The Slovenian took down Lisi Corneliu of Moldova last September at SENSHI 13, and in 2021 he dominated Nikola Iorgov to defend his WAKO Pro K-1 78kg belt.
The international fight will take place under the rules of KWU Full Contact in the cat. up to 75 kg. on February 18th during SENSHI 15 in the Palace of Culture and Sports in Varna.
