'Cro-Cop' coup for Cibalia

Friday, 22 July 2005Newly-promoted Croatian side HNK Cibalia have strengthened their squad for the new season by signing the former Yugoslav republic's top kick-boxer. Mirko 'Cro-Cop' Filipovic is already a legend in Japan and among fight-lovers the world over for his performances in the ultra-violent K1 no-holds-barred fighting championships, but as he prepares to battle for the world title on 28 August, he will be training with Cibalia. While not a football expert, Filipovic is a reasonably skilful player, and was handed his debut for Cibalia in the second division last season. However, even though he is unlikely to play in the top division, the club had no hesitation in signing him. "He will bring extra motivation and strength to our team," said Cibalia coach Davor Mladina. At 105kg, there is certainly little doubting that Filipovic is not built like a footballer, and even if he does get the chance to play for Cibalia this season, he was not overconfident about his ability. "The only way I will score a goal in the first division is if I bribe all the opponents' squad," he joked. It would probably be cheaper to just threaten to beat them up.

former yugoslav republic's

He never participate for former Yugoslavia, just for Croatia started in the late 90's. Public got familiar with him when he participate in K1 in Japan in late 90's, losing in the finals, fighting with broken rebs (got that injury in the semi's). That was his first big impact in kick-boxing and since that his reputation began to grow.
