In the quarter-finals of the 91kg second leg, Kuvalda faced Croatian Toni Chatipovic, who became European champion last year.
Masloboyev broke his opponent in a three round fight – 2: 1. The Lithuanian representative managed to maintain the fragile advantage only after the extremely tight final round.
Masloboyev took some time to catch his breath after his opponent's attack on the unauthorized zone, but later Klaipėda's player managed to fill his opponent with decisive punches, leading to a general victory.
In the semifinals, Masloboyev won at least one bronze medal.
In the semifinals, Masloboyev will face the Turkish Cemil Yldirim.
As a reminder, during the first fight, S. Masloboyev overthrew the Slovakian Adrian Bartle effectively.
Masloboyev became the WAKO World Champion in 2013. He later took a long break from this discipline and returned to the kickboxing ring this year.
