Keith Azzopardi became the first Maltese kickboxer in history to hold world titles in two different styles of kickboxing simultaneously last night.
Azzopardi was on a high after being crowned World Featherweight champion in Nice two weeks ago, and he was given a chance to add the World Featherweight Full Contact title to his belt.
On home soil at the Corradino Sports Pavillion, Azzopardi faced off against German-Afghani national Qurban Hosseini, and was unanimously crowned winner after five rounds.
After the fight, Azzopardi shared a photo of his two belts, with a simple statement that really said it all: “Two world titles in just two weeks #History.”
Last night also saw Maltese kickboxer Diane Schembri square off against German national Pia Peters for the WKN European Bantamweight pro-amateur title. However, after five rounds, the judges narrowly awarded Peters the win through a split decision.
