YOKKAO 27: here comes a new challenger!
Every fighter is now eyeing the prestigious YOKKAO World Titles. Where many crumble to the pressure, it takes a true champion to accept and face the nonstop challenge for the title.
Come this 15th October 2017, the YOKKAO World Title -65kg is being laid on the line once again at YOKKAO 27. Just fresh from defending the title at YOKKAO 24 in March earlier this year, Liam Harrison will be fighting again to defend the honor for a second time in six months. This time, Harrison will face a young and formidable foe, German kickboxer, Kevin Burmester.
At the age of 24, Kevin Burmester has clocked an impressive 64 wins out of 72 fights with 31 KOs. He has a few belts to his name as a multi time WKN (World Kickboxing Network) world champion fighting under both K1 and Muay Thai rules. Burmester fights out of Xite Gym in Hamburg, Germany and trains under his father and experienced coach, Lutz Burmester. Coach Burmester himself has several acclaimed fighters who have trained under his coaching, including female Muay Thai world champion Meryem Uslu and WKN Kickboxing champion Dima Weimer.
Of course, Liam Harrison is no pushover in the ring. A seven time Muay Thai world champion with 81 wins out of 105 fights with 40 ending in KOs, everyone knows that Harrison is a Muay Thai powerhouse. With such credentials to both names, YOKKAO 27 looks set to be a fierce battle for the YOKKAO World Title -65kg.
The double event of YOKKAO 27 – 28 will also see English fan-favorite Jordan Watson going up against Lumpinee champion, Pongsiri PKSaenchaimuaythaigym.
