A new bantamweight champion will be crowned at FCR 13.

A few days ago, the promotion announced that bantamweight contenders Bernardo Sopai and Karlen Minasian will fight for the vacant title at FCR 13. Sopai trains at Allstars and has a record of 8-2, while Minasian has a pro record of 5-1 and represents Örebro Fight Gym.

FCR 13 will be the first event for Fight Club Rush in Stockholm.

“This will be the first FCR event outside of Västerås, but not the last one,” Ostrogonac told “Our plan going forward is to hold two events a year in Stockholm, give or take.”

“About 90 percent of our focus goes towards up-and-coming talent on the rise, rather than fighters who’re on their way down. The reason for that is simple; they are hungry and will always put on more exciting fights for the fans. Those who’ve been following FCR’s previous events know what I mean. See you on August 27th!”
