After a successful debut in Stockholm last year Fight Club Rush will return to the Swedish capital for FCR 15 - which is shaping up to be a blockbuster event!
The main event will see newly crowned bantamweight champ Bernardo "The Lion King" Sopai (9-2-1) take on ferocious Frenchman Julien Lopez (5-2-1). Allstars' Sopai became champion by knockout out the ice-cold counter striker Karlen Minasian at FCR 13. The reigning champ now holds wins in three out of his last four bouts. Lopez enters the bout with wins via first round finish in three out of his last four bouts.
Featherweight favourites Fernando "El Toro" Flores (10-10) and Alexander Lööf (4-0) will duke it out in the co-main event. Flores is a truly battle tested veteran who's fought many of Northern Europes best fighters in lighter weight divisions. In particular, he fought Tobias Harila and Felipe Lima in previous FCR events. Lööf, on the other hand, enters the bout undefeated, coming off of a decision win over Samuel Bark at FCR 12.
In a bout that solidifies FCR as a top European promotion and not just a Swedish based organisation, Spanish FCR star Hecher Sosa will also face returning Dane Frederik Skov Strauss in a bantamweight contest. Sosa most recently defeated Allstars prospect Bilal Tipsaev at FCR 14 while Strauss returns to the promotion coming off of two straight wins.
The always stellar welterweight division will also see the return of the oortodox Christian Stigenberg as he welcomes Danish grappler Simon Seiler to FCR. Top Nordic flyweights will clash as Sweden's Amir Malekpour faces Dane Mack Promané in a bout that will make waves in the division.
Aside from established FCR featherweights Wasi Adesina and Glenn McVeigh will meet in a bout that may steal the show, as fan favourite Moe Ahmadi faces his toughest test to date against Finnish veteran Patrik Pietelä in the main card opener.
The preliminary card will be capped off with the return of Swedish star Liam Pitts who takes on Enes Ahmemulic.
Serb Ognjen Babic will also take on Frenchman Ahouzi Kouamé in an international welterweight clash, amateur stars Daniel Karlsson and Tommi Leinonen collide in a pro contest, Jaafer Mohammed returns to face Abdullah Ali Amer and titans Najib Adams and Erik Olofsson meet in a 100 kilogram catchweight bout.
