Karate Combat is taking the sports-entertainment world by storm, and today have announced the signing of Olympic medalist Rafael Aghayev to a new, exclusive, long-term agreement.
Aghayev won three consecutive bouts at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan to claim the silver medal in the highly-competitive men’s 75kilogram (165lbs) division, adding yet another honor to his extensive list of achievements.
A legendary competitor on the international karate circuit, Aghayev is a five-time World Champion and eleven-time European Champion. A popular mainstream sportsman in his native Azerbaijan, his exploits have earned him extensive media coverage and numerous awards from government and sporting bodies.
“Rafael Aghayev is one of the greatest karate competitors of all time and we are delighted to sign this new agreement with him as he carries the momentum of his Olympic victories into the Karate Combat Pit and goes after the professional world championship.”
- Adam S. Kovacs, President, Karate Combat.
Aghayev will compete in the upcoming Karate Combat: Season 4, which begins production in the coming months and will broadcast in Spring 2022.
