75 kg division will again have two finalists in the draw bracket as Vital Hurkou is getting ready for a rematch against Jimmy Vienot.
Their first encounter took place in Prague as the multiple world champion from Belarus had to see Jimmy’s skills at his first appearance in IFMA tournament. It was a clash of two amazing athletes and it was Jimmy who could surprise his opponent going all three rounds strong gaining the confident win.
A year passed and from Hurkou’s coach words he put it his mission to take a rematch. The home European Championships couldn’t be a better place to return the European gold medal back to Belarus. Vital will have an enourmous support from the local crowd. Vital and Jimmy will share the 75 kg weight division in Minsk but there is only one gold medal and soon it will be decided if it will stay in Minsk or travel to France.
For Jimmy, he already triumphed in Bangkok adding the World’s gold to his record. At the interview to the IFMA Media Jimmy was asked what he thinks about Vital statement to revenge for Prague. The answer was: “Let him try...”
It will be a match worth the final and many promoters are following the development of the draw to set for a possible decider.
Stay tuned to watch it Live from Minsk
