Congratulations are in order for Karate Combat fighter & Olympian Rafael Aghayev, who takes Silver home on behalf of his country Azerbaijan 🇦🇿.
Karate Combat is proud to have an Olympic medalist in our ranks.
At Tokyo 2020 (taking place August 6th, 2021), Aghayev defeated all of his 75kg kumite opponents but one, the Olympic Gold medal-winner from Italy, Luigi Busa.
We also extend our congratulations to Busa, who like every Gold medal-winner at the games, will of course receive a six-figure offer to join Karate Combat.
Aghayev lost the Olympic Final to Busa by a single point: 1-0.
Perhaps, then, a rematch of Aghayev versus Busa is in order, and can take place using the Karate Combat rules!
We look forward to the possibilities!
You can replay Aghayev versus Gustavo from our Karate.com Events page (scroll down).
