The world’s largest martial arts organization has added another member of the Stoica family to its talent-rich ONE Super Series roster.
On Friday, 15 May, Romanian kickboxing sensation “The Bucharest Bad Boy” Bogdan Stoica officially signed with ONE Championship to compete in the promotion’s all-striking branch.
Stoica, who hails from Bucharest, Romania, holds a professional record of 52-12, with 37 of those victories coming by way of knockout.
The 30-year-old has defeated some of the most well-respected veterans of the sport including Zinedine Hameur-Lain, Fred Sikking, and Fabio Kwasi.
Those wins helped pave his way to the SUPERKOMBAT Cruiserweight World Championship, WKU Cruiserweight World Title, and Enfusion Light Heavyweight World Championship. In addition to that, he has won two wushu national titles in his homeland.

Fans are already quite familiar with his older brother, Andrei “Mister KO” Stoica, who is currently scheduled to challenge ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Champion Roman Kryklia for the gold at some point in 2020.
That may lead to high expectations for “The Bucharest Bad Boy,” but his championship background and reputation for highlight-reel knockouts suggests that he will be able to deliver fireworks when he steps into the Circle.
A date for his promotional debut has not been confirmed, but fans should expect to see “Mister KO’s” little brother compete on the global stage later this year.
