SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix 2015 Final Results: Jorge Loren stuns Andrei Stoica

The Superkombat World Grand Prix 2015 Final took place this past Saturday in Bucharest, Romania. The main event featured Andrei Stoica vs. Jorge Loren for the WKN Super Cruiserweight Championship. 

Loren was looking to collect his second victory over one of the Stoica brothers. He defeated Bogdan Stoica in early 2014 and up next was big brother Andrei. Many had Stoica as the favorite, he was on an 8-fight win streak with half of those wins coming by (T)KO. This fight was over early, Loren struck hard an fast working behind a stiff jab. A left hook connected that stunned Stoica and as he back peddled into the ropes Loren pounced and the referee immediately intervened and gave Stoica a standing 8-count. Despite the fight continuing it was clear this was the beginning of the end for Stoica as he did not seem to fully recover.

A second knockdown came from a right hand as Stoica tried to get aggressive and Loren countered. Stoica stumbled to the mat and was able to get back to his feet to beat the referee's count. A few seconds later Loren knocked Stoica down for a third and final time with another right hand. The fight was waived off immediately by the referee in a great performance by Loren to capture the WKN Super Cruiserweight Championship.

In the night's heavyweight tournament Tarik Khbabez of Morroco and Roman Kryklia of Ukraine met in the final. It was Khbabez who ended up victorious, winning a unanimous decision over Kryklia and the tournament crown.
