At the 2016 IMMAF World Championships in Las Vegas, Hungary entered 5 athletes to see women’s featherweight contender, Fatime Nanasi, win Bronze Nanasi returns for this week’s 2016 European Open alongside Welterweight teammate Attila Cziffra, who fell unwell during the World Championships to experience a first round loss and aims for greater success at this event. Meanwhile in  vocally hoping for a “German-Hungarian final”, Nanasi is calling out World Silver medallist Julia Dorny, who defeated her in the World Semi-Finals and is the sole German in the division.
