We’re turning the clocks back to 2007 when the first ever ICHIGEKI gala evening took place in Varna, Bulgaria. The Kyokushin fight night gathered some of the best Kyokushin fighters from Bulgaria and Europe. Bulgaria’s Yordan Yanev faced Spain’s Pablo Estensoro in this -90 kg bout.
The 20-year-old Yanev was a national Kyokushin champion of Bulgaria and in 2007 he finished 5th in the European championship in Barcelona.
Estensoro, 31, was the more experienced fighter, as he was a European champion from 2006 and multiple award winner from various European tournaments.
