YOKKAO Reaches New Milestone With Manachai’s WBC Title Win
YOKKAO recently held its 33rd and 34th edition of its official event in Hong Kong. For the first time ever, YOKKAO hosted a WBC Muay Thai World title bout as the main event showpiece. The headlining matchup featured Manachai against Brazilian fighter Julio Lobo for the welterweight championship belt.
With the coveted title on the line, both fighters delivered the performance of their respective careers. Manachai edged over his opponent with a sound strategy, dismantling Lobo’s advantageous reach through a tight defense and well-strategized offense. After a hard-fought battle that went to the judges, the YOKKAO fighter won the fight on points to take home the WBC championship gold.
As a Muay Thai brand, YOKKAO is perhaps best known for its premium range of fight gear, equipment and apparel. YOKKAO event promotions and seminars are also widely acclaimed on an international scale. At the same time, it also harbours a distinguished squad of the best fighters who compete under the YOKKAO Fight Team including Saenchai, Singdam and Manachai.
Since day one, YOKKAO has taken on the mission of globalizing the Muay Thai sport and building up world-class fighters for the new generation. It takes months and years to build a fighter into a champion, requiring massive commitments from both the fighter and the camp.
It is one thing to come up with bestselling fight products, it’s another to make champions out of fighters. With the crowning of Manachai as the new WBC world welterweight champion, YOKKAO has arrived at a new milestone. The brand shows that it is not only an equipment manufacturing company or just an event promoter; YOKKAO is an authentic Muay Thai company with a complete 360-degree operations.
