In the last five years, Superkombat was the European leader in kickboxing from the point of television exposure, and from 2016, the promotion founded in 2011 by Eduard Irimia, will make its debut into the USA market and will provide premium combat sports events and attract new audience. In the main-event of the night, the Romanian super star Catalin Morosanu will face the currently ranked UK number 1 in the heavyweight division, Daniel "The Warrior" Sam.
"After months of negotiations, we are happy to announce that Superkombat events will be hosted also in the USA. For that, we have selected a strategic partner in our team, Mr. Richy Miranda – Cortese to support our efforts and who will develop the Superkombat concept in the whole American continent.”
“The first USA event will be in Puerto Rico, but we will continue also in other countries from the American continent and now we are thinking about Colombia, Mexic and Dominican Republic. As we did in Europe, we will discover new heroes in America through the Superkombat academy system which will be developed all around the world. The event for March 26 will be called USA vs Rest of the world", said Mr. Irimia.
The new representative of Superkombat in USA, Mr. Miranda-Cortese orchestrates the first ever UFC event in Puerto Rico and out of the US, that made the Government create a new law allowing the event presentation locally.

"I'm very happy , everything is set and we start a great journey together.
