5 Reasons to Watch Legacy Kickboxing 3 TONIGHT on AXS TV!


Glory-Rules Kickboxing Returns to AXS TV Tonight 10 ET | 7 PT

The third installment of Legacy Kickboxing goes down TONIGHT on AXS TV. Here are 5 Reasons to watch tonight’s LK 3, besides just the world-class striking…

1) “The Bullet”

If you watched the debut of Legacy Kickboxing back in January or Legacy 39 you saw one of the most talented female fighters in the world. Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko boasts an incredible (56-1) record in Muay Thai and Kickboxing and she’s also (9-1) in MMA! “The Bullet” is a rising star right now in MMA, UFC President Dana White even attended a Legacy event a few weeks back in the hopes of seeing her fight. Shevchenko will go head-to-head with Belgium’s Ankel Van Gastel in the night’s main event. Van Gestel is highly decorated herself and comes in with a record of (22-3).  

2) LHW Quarterfinals

Two more spots in the Legacy Kickboxing Light Heavyweight One-Night Tournament are on the line tonight. At LK 2, both Myron Dennis and Brian Collette punched their tickets to the semifinals. Tonight Manny Mancha (11-2) and Fernando Almeida (9-1), and Andres Van Engelen (8-1) and Danny Mitchell (4-1) will fight for a chance to join them. At 209 pounds there’s a good chance we’ll see some knockouts!

3) Battle of Lion Fight Vets

This is a Legacy event but there are TWO Lion Fight vets set to square off on the LK 3 card! Chicago’s Richard Abraham (6-2) will meet Oakland’s Daniel Kim (4-2-1) in the third fight of the night. Abraham lost via decision to now Lion Fight champ Jo Nattawut back in February at Lion Fight 20 and Kim fought (and lost a decision) at Lion Fight 13 LAST February. Lion Fight is back on AXS TV next week, get a little taste as Abraham and Kim clash in the Legacy Ring tonight!


4) Sean Soriano

Sean Soriano fought on AXS TV back in 2013 for CFA, where he won the featherweight title. After that, he was called up to the UFC where he suffered three tough losses and was released. At only 25, Soriano begins the road back to the UFC at LK 3. He will be making his pro-kickboxing debut against Josh Glover tonight and he’s also signed with the promotion to compete in MMA events.
