YOKKAO 38: Nathan Bendon vs Craig Coakley
Preparations for YOKKAO 37 - 38 is officially underway with some familiar names and new faces already confirmed for the 23 March show. Two YOKKAO event regulars are ready to return to Bolton Macron Stadium for a face-off and it’s none other than Nathan Bendon vs Craig Coakley.
Nathan Bendon proved his place in the sport when he took on Rambo Phet Por Tor Aor at YOKKAO 32 with less than a month’s notice. The UK fighter fought tooth and nail against an elite Thai champion in one of the night’s most memorable fight, showing he can hold his own against the best. Bendon is back for his third YOKKAO appearance in another challenging bout as he faces the KO extraordinaire, Craig Coakley.
Coakley is fast becoming a staple on the YOKKAO card in Bolton. The Irish fighter has scored an impressive hat trick of knockouts in all 3 of his YOKKAO fights. No easy feat considering the tough competition he has faced including UK favorites like Myk Estlick and Jack Kennedy. Coakley is on a roll and he is expected to go in with all guns blazing, looking for the kill.
There’s never a dull moment with either fighter in the ring. When Bendon and Coakley get together in the ring at YOKKAO 38, it’s a match up that is guaranteed to be pure dynamite.
Bendon and Coakley will be joined at YOKKAO 37 - 38 by the anticipated bout between Thai phenom Superbank vs Paul “The Magician” Karpowicz. UK legend Liam Harrison has also signed on for the Bolton double event with his opponent to be announced on a later date. YOKKAO 37 – 38 returns to Bolton Macron Stadium on 23 March 2019.
