Full Fight Card for YOKKAO 27 – 28!
Months of finding and matching opponents have finally ended, culminating in one of the best matchmaking in YOKKAO events to date. 2 events, 12 bouts featuring the best fighters from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany and Thailand, descending in the town of Bolton UK for a rumbling Muay Thai Sunday matinee.
After an overwhelmingly successful YOKKAO 23 -24 earlier this year in March, the popular Muay Thai event returns to the Bolton Macron Stadium this coming 15th October. As the date draws nearer, the tension is building up for fans and fighters alike.
YOKKAO 27 – 28 will be headlined by the 2 title defense fights of local heroes, Liam Harrison and Jordan Watson respectively. Watson’s bout is arguably the most highly anticipated fight as he is set to face Pongsiri, a former Lumpinee Welterweight Champion and a fiercely aggressive yet technical fighter. This is a matchup that looks certain to rock the house down.
Harrison himself doesn’t have it any easier. His challenger is a 24 year-old German Kickboxer, Kevin Burmester who has already clocked an impressive fight record of 64 wins out of 72 fights with 31 KOs. It is one powerhouse against an up and coming fighter and a fight deserving its headlining act status.
On top of the 2 main events, the other fight to look out for features Scottish fighter, Christopher Shaw against one of the most elite Nak Muay of the moment, Superlek Kiatmoo9. Superlek will be making his YOKKAO UK debut at YOKKAO 27 and audience will finally have a chance to watch the superstar fighter live in action.
The rest of the fights will be no less intense or exciting. It bears repeating that YOKKAO 27 – 28 will showcase nothing less than the best that Muay Thai has to offer. Hands down, the best Muay Thai event in the UK. Hearts are thumping, blood is rushing, and the tickets are running out.
