Lion Fight 17 - August 1st.
Lion Fight 17
The largest Muay Thai promotion in the country is Lion Fight. Recently, Lion Fight has decided to find a home on the East Coast, at Foxwoods Resort and Casino. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the event as a judge.
Despite what Pat Militech vocalized on national television, the team of officials was incredibly well-qualified and knowledgeable in the sport of Muay Thai. It was a pleasure to work with the commission at Foxwoods and I relish the opportunity to do it again.
This time, however, I get to work at Foxwoods in a different capacity. I will be fighting the co main event for the next Lion Fight on the East Coast. My opponent will be "the Diamond" himself, Malaipet Sasiprapa. I'm beyond excited.
I have faced Malaipet once before and I have been eager to avenge my loss since I watched his hand raised. I was not myself that night, and I can not wait to prove that I am the superior fighter.
Malaipet has a pedigree that can not be debated. He is current WBC US champion. He is a former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern stadium champion, he is a WBC international champion, as well as former IKKC, IKBA, IMTO and champion on the world and national levels.
A win against him would be a huge step in my career. I respect him very much, and plan on respectfully handing him his ass on 8/1. ;)
We are working on figuring out a group trip to Foxwoods, perhaps chartering a bus. Let it be known if you are looking to come on the trip. We will have tickets at the gym and please purchase them from us!
Thank you! Can't wait to represent!
