Belarus' Gurkov wins kickboxing tournament in China

Vitaly Hurkou, who became the world champion in Muay Thai eleven times and won the European championship six times, yesterday won a kickboxing tournament in China.

The Belarusian fighter, part-time vocalist of the Brutto music band, won three victories in one evening: over the Thai, Chinese and Iranian athletes in the weight category up to 75 kilograms.

Vitaly then wrote on Instagram that if the Belarusian club BATE played with the same vigor as he himself fights, then the Yellow-Blues would already top the UEFA Champions League.
