Frank Stäblein at RISING SUN
Frank, at 54 years old, is even fitter, tougher and, above all, more experienced than most of the "young guns" in our sport in Germany. And he, too, has heard the call of "Rising Sun". And he too wants to set an example. He wants to show that you have to stand up to make a difference. That you have to fight to give hope to others.
Frank will be competing in an ADCC Superfight over 10 minutes in sub-only mode at Rising Sun on 03 April. An opponent has not yet been determined, but will certainly be found for the Mainz exception athlete. From 20 clock SportsGermany.TV broadcast the entire event live and free of charge. With the participation of a legend, as Frank undoubtedly is, the event is again extremely upgraded and we consider ourselves lucky to be able to present this athlete to the fans once again in Germany.
