The World Kickboxing Network returned to France this past Saturday (Dec. 14) with La Nuit des Challenges 19 held at Palais des Sports in Saint-Fons. The event presented by Nasser Kacem featured a series of kickboxing and Muay Thai bouts with WKN world title contested in the headliner of the show.

French star Yohan Lidon faced Giorgi Kankava of Georgia in defense of his WKN World Super Middleweight title. The championship bout went a full five-round distance. The judges' decision unanimously went in favor of the representative of the country-host, Lidon, who retained his belt, making the fifth successful defense.
