Bulgaria’s national kickboxing team captain won the world WAKO PRO kickboxing belt in the 71.8 kg category last April at SENSHI 2. The Bulgarian defeated Max Spodarenko from Belarus in what was the main event of the night.


The 33-year-old Burgas native will be making his 4th SENSHI appearance. He’s three for three up to this point with his last victory coming in October 2019 when he defeated another Belarusian fighter – Pavel Pravashinski in a fight conducted under the K-1 rules.

In 2018, Bozhilov became a world kickboxing champion for professionals, capturing the Kickboxing Grand Prix in the -72.5 kg category.

At the end of December 2019, Atanas received a special award during “The Golden Belt” ceremony in Sofia for popularising and developing combat sports in Bulgaria.

His opponent at SENSHI5 is yet to be announced, but organizers say it’s a matter of week or two.
