Breaking news: After a flashmeeting between fighters and promoters, YOKKAO officially announces that Liam Harrison vs Tetsuya Yamato will be valid for the YOKKAO World Title -65kg. Doungjai Tananan, President of YOKKAO Boxing states: "the YOKKAO World Title is born from the common decision of our promoters to determine who is the best Muay Thai fighter in the World. As per our regulation, due to Pakorn's three successive losses in a row, the YOKKAO World Title is officially vacant. The fact that one of Pakorn’s losses was against Tetsuya Yamato, already scheduled to fight Liam Harrison at YOKKAO 17, will give once again to Muay Thai fans the possibility to know who will be the best Muay Thai fighter -65kg in the World." With Muay Thai Federations emerging every year, the YOKKAO World Title is now considered by fans one of the hardest World Titles to win as there are no Federation limits or affiliations required for fighters in order to have the chance to fight for it.

Interview with Singdam Kiatmoo9 by YOKKAO Key person Stefania Picelli has been released on Youtube with English subtitles and is now surfing the web. With a quiet calm, Singdam Kiatmoo9 did not seem overall too impressed with Liam Harrison. When Stefania Picelli told Singdam that YOKKAO 15 would have be Liam’s 100th celebration fight, Singdam answered smiling: “I fought my 100th fight when I was 13 yrs old”. The answer seemed like a provocation to Liam Harrison and his fans, but in any 3rd party opinion this looked like fact. Singdam fought more than 300 times in his career while Liam Harrison will celebrate his 100th fight soon on Saturday, October 10th in Bolton. It must be said that a lot of fights give fighters a lot of experience, but as Kiatmoo9’s manager said: “Foreigners are not at the same level of many years ago, it will be a big fight!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VxwJ3h3Zq0
