The TopKing World Series continues with the 8th edition ( TK8 ) that will take place at Pattaya’s pier (Bali Hai Pier, Thailand), on 28th December 2015.

The event is focused on the -70kg tournament semifinal and final, that will be attended by the 4 winners of the last editions:

  • The  Thai champ who needs no introduction Kem Sit2PNong, who defeated the Italian Martin Meoni at TK5 (Zhoukou, China – Video) and Sergei Kuliaba at TK7 (Ningbo, China – Video).
  • The Russian Khayal Zhaniev, who defeated Eddy Paci at TK6 (Vientiane, Laos – Video) and Sergio Mazzetti at TK7 (Ningbo, China).
  • The Belorussian Dmitry Valents, who defeated the strong Thai athlete Dejrit Poptheeratham at TK6 (Vientiane, Laos – Video) but was stopped in the quarter finals by the frenchman Jimmy Vienot at TK7 (Ningbo, China – Video); Jimmy has been replaced by Dmitry Valents, due to managerial reasons between TKWS’s organization and Vienot’s manager (Full article in French).
  • The Chinese Liu Lei, who replaced Pu Dongdong.

A great final that will decide the TopKing World Series -70kg 2015 champion.
