Card: Saenchai, Pakorn, Hlali & more – Phoenix 2 – 29 April 2017
The Lebanese promotion, Phoenix Fighting Championship, with only one event to date, has already spread their name quite a bit. Surely one of the main reasons being having Buakaw Banchamek fight in their opening event (link) last year. Now, Phoenix 2 is underway and it will take place tomorrow (April 29th 2017) in Beirut, Lebanon.
The main event will see another Muay Thai legend, Saenchai take on one of the best french fighters, Azize Hlali, in what will be a pretty interesting fight. The pair will fight for the Phoenix champion belt at 63.5 kg.
Another Thai star is on this card, Saenchai‘s old rival and now training partner: Pakorn. He will also face a french fighter, Morgan Adrar, who was present in Phoenix’s first event. This fight will be for both the Phoenix and the WMC world title at 67 kg.
A super heavy weight bout is also scheduled for tomorrow night, as very skilled American, Steven Banks, will take on Dutch Wendell Roche. Banks has been fighting a lot in China and Thailand, with good success.
In the only female bout of the night, Antonina Shevchenko from Peru’ will face Swedish fighter Isa Tidblad Keskikangas for both the Phoenix and the WMC world champion belts in the 63.5 kg (female) weight class.
