Live streamed on EB-TV and broadcast on BandSports in Brazil.

Latin America’s biggest kickboxing promotion is about to land on the city of Guarapuava, Parana, south region of Brazil. On September 5th, WGP Kickboxing will hold its 26th edition, in which the main event will put face to face the former UFC fighter Guto Inocente and Felipe Micheletti to determine the new 94kg division champion. The co-main event of the evening, a one-night four-man tournament, will define the first challenger to the recently crowned 85kg champion, Alex ‘Po Atan’ Pereira.

Two striking phenomena will collide on the main event of the evening. Fighting out of Sorocaba, Sao 
Paulo, Felipe Micheletti, who is only 24 years old, has already been a WGP national champion, and runner-up at WAKO’s (World Association of Kickboxing Organizations) world championship. With a record of seven wins, with three knockouts, and four losses, he is now coming from a unanimous decision over European Champion Toni Milanovic, from Serbia, at WGP #24. One of the greatest names in kickboxing on recent years, Inocente is a three-time Pan-American champion, two-time South-American champion, five-time Brazilian champion and a runner-up at world championship. Born in Brasilia, he is a member of the Blackzilians MMA Team and a training partner for fighters such as Vitor Belfort.

New 85kg challenger will be determined.

Four fighters will compete in a one-night-tournament that will reveal the next 85kg title-challenger. On the first semifinal, Rafael ‘Kratos’ faces Ricardo ‘Soneca’, and on the other, Ariel Machado fights Junior ‘Alpha’, who is also a former UFC fighter and a WGP debutant. The two winners will fight for the tournament’s trophy and the winner will earn a shot at Alex “Po Atan” Pereira’s belt.
