Two World Boxing Council (WBC) MuayThai world titles will be staged as the centrepiece of the show. Hamza Ngoto will defend his coveted WBC MuayThai super-middleweight world title against Phuket based Russian fighter, Salimkhan Ibragimov. A big challenge awaits the number 10 ranked super-middleweight fighter, who trains at Phuket’s Revolution MuayThai gym, as he faces off against the reigning champion.

Thailand’s Satanfaa Rachanon will defend his WBC MuayThai super-welterweight world title against his compatriot Yodwicha For Boonsit in what has the makings of a mouth-watering encounter. This will be Satanfaa’s first defence of the world title he won back in September of last year.

In another fascinating matchup, Thailand’s Pakorn PK Saenchai gym will clash with the current Lumpinee stadium welterweight champion, Rafi Bohic, from France.

The event will host a Kunlun Fight four-man tournament, which will see the return of the Chinese promotion to Thailand, where they have hosted many a successful night in recent times.
