Any new WKF Champion will have the option of defending the title within first six (6) months of their reign.
After six (6) months a title defence will be mandatory. If a Champion had not made a defence for more than twelfth (12) months they will be declared inactive, they would have no choice but to defend against the first qualified challenger, for the WKF defined minimum salary.
If a Champion had not made a defence for more than eighteen (18) months the WKF can declare the title vacant without giving notice. If a current champion wins the title in line (e.g. if a national Champion wins any European title) the lesser title will be automatically vacated.

WKF recommend …
Behave always as professional and change fighter profiles, few photos for advertising in high resolution. Perhaps a link to “youtube” from the latest fight would be helpfully too.
If you are not satisfied with the result, be kind and courteous. Make an official protest ringside immediately after the result by the attended supervisor. The final decision will be done by the WKF head office, web site: www.wkfworld.com
