Erhan YOKKAOSaenchaiGym Delivers Round 1 TKO Win On MX!
Erhan arrived at YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok back in 2016 and has since made it his home. Living and training with the YOKKAO Fight Team has been an enriching experience. The 27 year-old now counts Thai legends like Saenchai, Singdam and Pakorn among his training partners, all under the watchful guidance of the camp’s champion trainers. During this period, Erhan has competed twice on YOKKAO’s international events and even at the prestigious Lumpinee Stadium where he is currently ranked sixth in his weight class.
In December, Erhan made his debut for popular Muay Thai fighting show, MX Muay Xtreme, where he faced golden age legend, Orono Por Muang Ubon. The Turkish warrior proved too much for the returning 44 year-old Orono, especially with the brutal 6 oz gloves. Despite cruising to a win via decision after 3 full rounds, Erhan displayed humility and utmost respect for his opponent – showing the mark of a real martial artist.
Last Friday, the YOKKAO fighter made his second appearance for MX, fighting Thai opponent Jimmy Liangprasert. Erhan came out strong without any holding back and finished off the fight with a swift round-1 TKO via a powerful fist to the body. It was a well-deserving win as he had been training tirelessly at YOKKAO camp and the result speaks for itself.
Erhan is scheduled to fight in March with more details to follow up in the coming weeks.
