Ladies World title fight in Buenos Aires !

Posted by WKF head office on November 8th, 2023


The official poster from WKF ARGENTINA!


Austrian World Champion Alexandra “GODZILLA” PETRE will step into the ring against the absolute No. 1 in Latin America and world champion Sabrina FLORES on November 25th in Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires.

Since there are hardly any opponents in Europe – neither in K-1 nor in boxing – a long journey of around 22 hours has to be accepted.


If anyone in US or Canada has an opponent,

Petre look forward to receiving a serious offer! 🙂


Flores is one of only 3 girls who won against Petre. Back in Cairo 2021 (!) in light contact.

But Alexandra won against Sabrina in K-1. So the direct duel is 1:1


A highlight of the “Pan American Championships”

comparable to last European Championships in Italy

or the “African Championships” in Cameroon.


Many nations from North, Central and South America are expected there.

A TOP chance for further fights in Latin America and perhaps in the USA. A promoter in Florida has already shown interest, and negotiations are continuing in Buenos Aires.

As always, the weight class is Ladies Heavyweight +66 kg, it follows K-1 rules, and the fight is scheduled for 5 rounds.

TOP event in Canada – a milestone for our WKF organization

Posted by WKF head office on May 30th, 2023

The WKFQ’s SIXTH event of the year for @silvertooth_promotions’ Soirée-K1 Bain Mathieu was a milestone for our organization this year. 

As of tonight, we have officially equaled our historical record, set in 2022, in the first half of 2023. 
It is with the utmost gratitude that we thank Philippe Allaire Landreville, for believing in and working with us towards our vision to improve the framework of amateur combat sports in Québec, these past 4 years. 
Tonight was a special night, with what was arguably the best card of the year, so far; from C-Class to A-Class match-ups, that delivered, from start to finish. 
It is important to remember, as well, that the WKFQ would not be where it is without the crucial implication of its officials; chief among them, Marc Joseph Bélanger, who has involved himself in every single event since 2019. 
Along with him, stand: Justin W. Etheridge Jamie McGowan Eli GoldBerg , Jean-Christophe Laurin, Wendy Kellam, Simon Pouliot , Alexis Liberty , Sean St. Louis, Chris Shawbell, Ryan Parsons , Greg Béland, Jeff Pearce , Baoy Quoc , Jeff Sharp , Samuel Guillet 
Wolfgang Brutter Sandra R Amélie Chartrand , Guillaume Pain, Nasser Galai, Sasha Dodd Kellam Raphaël Michaud, Daniel Tremblay , Suzanne Prémont , Matthew Chiasson, Vince Roachy , and our newest member: Mattson Léon .
The work is never over. And we strive to improve everyday. 
We would like to also thank: Jean-Yves Theriault , Guy Poulin , Daniel Perron and Younes Chahti for their co-operation and shared vision towards improving and promoting amateur combat sports in Québec.
As well, we cannot leave out Alex Specogna and Jeremy Rubin, for the lending their incredible voices to entertain the crowd. 
Nous vous remercions de tout nos coeurs. 
Nous sommes fier de représenter notre province du Québec. 
Ensemble, nous bâtirons un futur pour nous tous.
