Contenders for Gold in 71 kg at the European Muaythai Championships 2017

The European Championships 2017 will finally give opportunities to see future stars in Europe as young blood is coming to Paris to show their skills and prove the coaches that they will soon be able to take first positions in the national team.

The two most memorable names on the list are this year World Games participants Pavel Dzialendzik from Belarus and Vasil Sorokin from Ukraine. Vasil is a truly promising athlete as he made the Ukrainian team in such short notice and had to step up the weight category to fill the 75 kg spot which was not an obstacle for him to reach the final. Pavel from the Belarus team in Poland also reached the quarter final of the games. Pavel has a history of bouts in Thailand making his appearance in the King’s Cup 2014, entering the ring against the legend of Ukrainian muaythai Igor Liubchenko.


The host of the European Championships 2018 Michael Krcmar who has a list of matches in different tournaments will join the 71 kg division in France to make the EC2017 a stepping stone towards the podium in Prague next year.


Another interesting athlete to follow will be Russian Aleksandr Skvortsov who was two times gold winner in the competitive division at the European Championships 2016 and the World Championships 2017. It’s time for Aleksandr to move into the Elite division and prove his skills with Europe’s best. 


71 kg will definitely give Europe new names, and for spectators it will be a great show to watch as each athlete will want to prove to themselves that they are worth being on top of the muaythai world.
