YOKKAO 27 & 28: Back in Bolton, UK on October 15th 2017!
YOKKAO 27 – 28 is confirmed for Sunday, October 15th in Bolton, UK for another showcase of the best Muay Thai fighters in action.
The immensely successful YOKKAO 23/24 held in Bolton earlier in March this year remains a much talked-about fight night. Fans poured into the Macron Stadium from around Europe to witness two YOKKAO world titles defense. Both title holders, Jordan Watson and Liam Harrison defended their belts successfully against their opponents in the 70kg and 65kg bouts respectively. The crowd was also treated to the phenomenal fight between Amy Pirnie and Dakota Ditcheva, which many tout to be the best female fight of the year.
The main event for YOKKAO 28 has been confirmed and will see English fan-favorite Jordan Watson defending the YOKKAO World Title -70kg against Pongsiri PKSaenchaimuaythaigym. Pongsiri is a Lumpinee and Ch7 stadium champion, so fans can expect nothing less than an intensive bout between the two. Other confirmed fights in the lineup includes Jonathan Haggerty vs JA Kiatphontip, and Rungarai Kiatmoo9 vs Dan McGowan. The rest of the fight card for YOKKAO 27 – 28 will be announced in the coming days.
Taking into consideration that the event will be held on Sunday, YOKKAO 27/28 will start and finish earlier compared to the past events that were typically Saturday fixtures. This will allow for attendees to make it back home in time for work on Monday morning. Doors will open at 12:30 and the event will start at 13:30.
