Harrison vs Faustino to Headline YOKKAO 41
YOKKAO 41 - 42 will be heading to Dublin, Ireland on 27 July for the inaugural YOKKAO Ireland event. The first main event bout of the night is confirmed and will pit the best of two nations against each other as UK legend, Liam Harrison takes on Italian star, Cristian Faustino.
Always a spectacle to watch, Harrison will bring some hard-hitting action to the stage in Dublin. The multi-time world champion is finally making his Irish debut and he is looking to make it count. Harrison is making a return to the YOKKAO ring from a knee training injury that saw him out of action briefly. He is back on track in his training routine and picking up the intensity. We expect him to be in top form on 27 July and unleash his signature back-breaking sweeps and chopping low kicks.
After two headlining appearances on our promotions, Faustino is set to be back for his third as he faces Harrison at YOKKAO 41. Competing out of Bologna’s Pro Fighting Sempre Avanti, Faustino holds a record of 65 fights and 48 wins. The Italian fighter was last seen in the ring at YOKKAO 36 with Saenchai, going the distance against the living legend. He will now add another tick on the checklist as he adds another legend to his fight record.
Stay tuned as we will announce the rest of the card shortly. The headlining matchup for YOKKAO 42 promises to be one of the biggest fights in the history of our promotion.
YOKKAO 41 - 42 will be held at the National Basketball Arena in Tymon Park, Dublin. Doors to the event will open at 13:00 and action will be kicking off at 14:00. Tickets for the double event are now on sale at https://www.yokkao.com/events/yokkao-41-42-dublin/.
