Following a stellar performance at YOKKAO 30 in March, Muay Thai legend Singdam will make his return to the ring on 26 May to delight the fans once again. After over a decade competing on the elite stadium circuit of Thailand, Singdam has amassed a bevy of championship titles as well as the prestigious Fighter of the Year awards. He has now switched his focus on competing in international promotions, most notably in China where he has built a massive fanbase. With an impressive run at Kunlun Fight 66kg tournament last year, the multi-time champion is now set to make a debut for another popular Chinese promotion, Glory of Heroes (GOH) for its 31st show. The Black Lion will take on current Glory of Heroes Junior Lightweight (67kg) champion, Tie Ying Hua in a kickboxing bout.

One of the most anticipated match-ups at the upcoming YOKKAO 30 in Bolton was the headlining act featuring Singdam against Reece McAllister. Reece has had to pull out of the event as he had torn his hip and is in the hospital for treatment. The YOKKAO Team wish McAllister a speedy recovery and look forward to having him back soon in the ring. Taking Reece McAllister’s place in the battle against Singdam will be fellow English fighter, Jack Kennedy. YOKKAO 30 marks Jack’s sixth appearance on the promotion and there are few as befitting as him as part of the main event. Fighting out of the Imperial Thai boxing Academy in Southport, Jack is a Golden Belt English Champion, as well as a ISKA British title holder. The 26 year-old Southport fighter is building a solid reputation as one of the most talented Muay Thai fighters in UK today. Jack has maintained a clean unbeaten record on YOKKAO events at 65kg but it looks like the Englishman will face perhaps his strongest opponent

Multi-time Muay Thai world champion, Singdam made a return to the ring on 3rd February since his last fight in November last year. This was his debut appearance for the Chinese fight promotion, Wu Lin Feng. After an impressive campaign last year on another Chinese promotion, Kunlun Fight, Singdam returned to resume his Chinese conquest. It’s been over 2 months since his last appearance in the ring but Singdam showed no sign of rust with a solid performance for his Wu Lin Feng debut. Despite facing a younger, fitter opponent in Xie Lei, Singdam’s rich experience of over 300 fights in his career was evident as the fight played out. The heavy-handed Xie was clearly aware of Singdam’s famed middle kicks. The Chinese remained constantly prepared to catch Singdam’s kicks but underestimated the Thai champion’s proficiency in all weapons including some very hard punches. While Xie started off strong in the first round, Singdam controlled the pace of the remaining
