Petrosyan will be fighting on a card in Italy he is promoting himself. No information is available about his opponent but the date is set for April 30th.

Given how dominant Petrosyan had been prior to the loss to Superbon a rematch might be justified. But the semi finals of a featherweight kickboxing Grand Prix are coming up later this month so the champion probably has other business to attend to first.

The Italian is regarded as one of the best kickboxers of all time. The knockout loss to Superbon was a huge surprise but he will be looking to bounce back with a win on April 30th.
