With illustrious names like Daniel Ghita, Benjamin Adegbuyi, Andrei, and Bogdan Stoica, Romania has been a dominant force in the world of kickboxing. With former promoter SuperKombat, Romania also brought in a lot of foreign fighters, making the local kickboxing scene one of the most active in the world. After the dissolution of SuperKombat a variety of organizations jumped in to fill in the void. Among them, K-1 veteran Cătălin Moroșanu's Dynamite Fighting Show has developed itself as one of the front runners of this development. When asked about the event, DFS promoter Catalin Morosanu said,

"We are extremely excited to organize the first Dynamite Fighting Show in Bistrita. It is a historic moment for us and we are determined to give the fans a memorable night full of quality fights and spectacle. We thank all those who are with us in this extraordinary adventure."



Although Romania is mostly known for its heavier fighters, the country is home to many top-level fighters at Featherweight and Lightweight as well. Ionut Popa will fight for the ISKA Intercontinental title (-65 KG) against German Moroccan Odris Ramzi

Lightweight Calin Petrisor, a kickboxer with a kempo karate background, will be facing experienced fellow Romanian Alex Bublea. Petrisor has won multiple ISKA world titles in his name, as well as the FEA lightweight title. The 25-year-old lost recently by close decision against K-1 up-and-comer Kacper Muszynski, but won last year against another K-1 fighter in Ukraine's Taras Hnatchuk.



The gala will feature a Middleweight (-80 KG) 4-man tournament with the DFS title on the line. 

The tournament's participants are FEA and KOK veteran Andrei Leuștean, Costin Dinu and Alexandru Andreescu and Andrei Ostrovanu will fight twice in one evening to determine a new champion. 

Most notable of the participants is Andrei Ostrovanu. The 30-year-old Romanian has fought wars against many of the world greats like Alim Nabiyev, Teodor Hristov and Bogdan Shumarov.



With rising star Stefan Latescu and newly signed GLORY fighter Ionut Iancu leading the pack it seems a new generation of talented Romanian (Light-) Heavyweights has arrived on the international scene. 

22-year-old Sebastian Lutaniuc and 26-year-old Florin Ivanoaie might be the next prospects to make a move up. Ivanoaie will get the opportunity at DFS 23 to test himself against a proven veteran in Vladimir Tok. An opponent who has already beaten him before, late 2022. However, Ivanoaie has made big leaps since then, becoming the runner up in DFS' 8-men Heavyweight Grand Prix last year. 

Light Heavyweight, Lutaniuc will also try to avenge a previous loss, facing Hungarian Balazs Kiss.
