Manachai Headlines YOKKAO Next Generation Phuket!
The search for young Muay Thai talents continue as YOKKAO Next Generation makes its way to Phuket on 30th September. More than 2 years since its launch, the talent-search initiative finally sets foot on the popular tourist island.
Besides a card of up-and-coming fighters, YOKKAO Next Generation Phuket will be headlined by Manachai, who takes on Max Muay Thai and Nai Khanom Tom Day champion, Phetnarin. It will not be an easy fight for the YOKKAO star but after his July appearance in Prague at All Star Fight 5, Manachai is itching to get back in the ring. The coming fight will also serve as a prelude to his WBC welterweight title shot next month in Hong Kong with YOKKAO 34.
Phuket has built a reputation for being one of the top destinations for beach-loving tourists and Muay Thai vacationers. The island boasts one of the highest numbers of Muay Thai camps per square mile in Thailand. Outside of Bangkok, Phuket is often another favorite spot to go for the best Muay Thai training with hordes of enthusiasts and fighters descending on the island everyday. With many looking to get their first big break, Phuket is the ideal location for the event.
