    Liam Harrison To Defend Title Against Chamuaktong At YOKKAO 30!

    Another monster of a fight has just been confirmed for YOKKAO 30 to be held next March 10. Current YOKKAO world champion -65kg will put his title on the line once again, this time against Chamuaktong PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym. For anyone who is unfamiliar with his name, Chamuaktong hails from the top Thailand camp of PKSaenchai Gym. The camp is a recipient of the coveted Lumpinee Stadium gym of the year award in 2016, and is home to many of the top fighters on the elite stadium circuit. Chamuaktong himself won the Rajadamnern title for 140 lbs just recently on November 6. He was also a Lumpinee champion at 140 lbs in 2016. That’s not all. Chamuaktong won the prestigious Toyota Marathon at 154 lbs back in the same year. Having defeated the likes of Petpanomrung Kiatmuu9 and Singdam, Chamuaktong is set to be one of the strongest challengers for Harrison’s YOKKAO Champion Belt-65kg. Harrison is fresh off a successful title defense at YOKKAO 27 earlier last month in October.

  9. YOKKAO Next Generation Kids: The Search for Future Stars!

    YOKKAO Next Generation Kids: The Search for Future Stars!

    The YOKKAO NEXT GENERATION global initiative was launched in 2015, designed to discover talent in the new generation of Muay Thai fighters. The event has been on a continual mission to spot and groom young fight talents from around the world. Now, YOKKAO takes the concept one step further by expanding the search to kids from 5 up to 16 years old. Even today, Muay Thai is a sport that remains dominated by the native Thai fighters. A key reason for this phenomenon is that most of them start training at a very young age - often as young as 5 to 6 years old. Other than a fiercely competitive environment that breeds the best Muay Thai fighters of the world, starting young has given the Thai fighters an edge in developing their game. By the time they turn pro at 15, which is the minimum age for pro fighting in Thailand, they would already have accumulated over 100 fights.
