The sixth edition of King of the Table is approaching and like its predecessors, features another star-studded lineup. And it was more special due to two reasons- the return of Levan Saginashvili, as well as the comeback of the legendary Denis Cyplenkov.

Pavlo Derbedyenyev vs. Sabin Badulescu

The opening match of the night featured Romanian puller Sabin Badulescu, famed for having defeated Levan in the past, who took on USA’s Pavlo Derbedyenyev, who’d come off a win over Monster Michael Todd at Monster Factory 3.

Levan Saginashvili vs Ermes Gasparini

The main event of KOTT 6 and the final super match of the night took place between the “Georgian Hulk” Levan, taking on the rising arm wrestling superstar from Italy, Ermes Gasparini.

While the first four rounds had Levan coming out on top, it was no easy task for the Georgian as Ermes put up brilliant contains each time, and went neck to neck against Levan who is known for his domination on the table.

However, the most dramatic moment of the match was during the fifth round, when after committing two fouls, Levan was unable to continue and was had to be given oxygen, and he decided to forfeit, awarding the rest two rounds to Ermes, but still winning the main event 4-2.
