Girl Power is a one-night eight-woman featherweight kickboxing contest. To take all, the contender has to collect three victories during one evening in the format of the Olympic system tournament: quarter-final, semi-final and final. The fast-paced bouts are scheduled at 3×2 minute rounds. Prestigious WKN championship belt at stake. The event is held on Friday October 13, 2017 in Varna, Bulgaria, live on SFR Sport 5.

Raluca Costache of Romania has been added to the card, finalizing the roster. Trained by Dan Mocanu at Respect Gym Gaesti, she is known for her battle against Iulia Luiza, among everything.

Costache replaces Cathy McAleer of Northern Ireland, who was forced to pull out due to injury received in a fight against French Amel Dehby earlier this month in Saint-Raphael. Dragica Jelisavac has been put back to the card.
