The official poster from WKF ARGENTINA has arrived!
Austrian World Champion Alexandra “GODZILLA” PETRE will step into the ring against the absolute No. 1 in Latin America and world champion Sabrina FLORES on November 25th in Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires.
Since there are hardly any opponents in Europe – neither in K-1 nor in boxing – a long journey of around 22 hours has to be accepted.
If anyone has an opponent, Petre look forward to receiving a seriousoffer! 🙂
Flores is one of only 3 girls who won against our Alexandra. Back in Cairo 2021 (!) in light contact.
But Alexandra won against Sabrina in K-1. So the direct duel is 1:1
