Kickboxing Empire set for March 8th in Las Vegas

Kickboxing Empire is set to take place March 8th at the Planet Hollywood Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The event will feature a main event bout between Agron Preteni of Croatia and Luis Tavares of Holland. The co-main event will feature the return of Shawn Yarborough as he takes on Pavel Turuk in a re-match.

Preteni will be looking to rebound from his (T)KO loss to Pavel Zhuravlev in Russia in November of 2013 when he takes on Tavares. Before his loss to Zhuravlev, Preteni had won five consecutive fights including two against Romanian powerhouse Andrei Stoica. Tavares is a Glory veteran who will be looking add an impressive win over the likes of Preteni to his resume.

Yarborough has not fought in nearly two years, the veteran fighter had hit a skid before his hiatus going 1-4 in his last five fights. His most recent fight was a KO loss to Joseph Valtellini under the Friday Night Fights banner. Before his loss to Valtellini, Yarborough dropped a split decision to Turuk and will undoubtedly be looking to return to the ring with a band as well as avenging his previous loss to Turuk.

Fight Card:

Agron Preteni vs. Luis Tavares
Shawn Yarborough vs. Pavel Turuk
Redouan Cairo vs. Dzianis Hancharonak
Jennie Neddell vs. Sofie Bagherdai
Vitaly Herkov vs. Tony Hervey
