Initially, ‘Fighting Rookies 5’ was scheduled for March but got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown.
Varkentin and Mikenta will be fighting for the middleweight WKN European amateur title with the contest being scheduled for five rounds. The undercard will be including international kickboxing, boxing, and MMA.
The previous Fighting Rookies event was held in March 2019, when Ronny Kamenik defeated Luca Renzi and earned the WKN European welterweight amateur title.
