The greatest to ever do it will make his return to professional competiton.

Giorgio Petrosyan, regarded by many as the greatest kickboxer in the history of the sport, will make his return to professional competition against the WAKO-Pro World Super Welterweight (-69.1 KG) champion Sergio Sanchez at Petrosyanmania on May 18.


Petrosyan was last seen on April 20, 2022, when he stopped Fatih Aydin in the second round of their meeting, a bounce back fight for him, following an upset stoppage loss at the hands of Superbon Banchamek. Only the third defeat of the 38-year old's professional career, it snapped an 8-year undefeated streak and caused the great to consider retirement.

Sergio "Dinamita" Sanchez earned the highest-profile win of his career this past November, as he was able to triumph over Giorgio's brother Armen Petrosyan in a vacant WAKO-Pro championship bout. Sanchez will look to build on his previous success and do what only three of the 112 men to face the two-time K-1 MAX winner were able to achieve.

Tickets for the event are now on sale.
