Daniel Velea of Team Jakini is the Italian kickboxing champ. His accomplishment was commemorated at the twenty-sixth edition of the “Le stelle del ring” battle sports gala, hosted at the Estra “Mario d’Agata” arena. The occasion included a series of extreme matches in between a few of the very best worldwide professional athletes, culminating in the awarding of a global title, 2 European titles, and a nationwide title. The most expected fight was Velea’s, who, assisted by coach Nicola Sokol Jakini and supported by the home town crowd, entered the ring against Isuf Mihail of Power Gym Craiova to contend for the -75kg belt. The twenty-five-year-old placed on a focused and identified efficiency, handling his challenger well throughout the match and eventually experiencing the complete satisfaction of winning his very first Italian title.
