After 2 successful shows at Barnsley and a third in Scotland, YOKKAO Next Generation Kids returns this Saturday May 26th. The fourth edition of the event is set to be staged back at Barnsley Metrodome, where it all began.
The forthcoming event will feature 45 fights on the card with the same structure that has made the event so popular. YOKKAO sponsored fighters, Ellie Barker and Anthony Deary have been confirmed for the show. Anthony will go head to head against Sonny from Yodphet Muay Thai in a rematch that could easily steal the show. Also on the card are young fighters from Norway, Ireland, Denmark and France who will take on UK's best talents.
Continuing a tradition started at Scotland in March, the coming show will once again be supporting the “Fighting for Autism” charity. The beneficiary will be represented by Jacob who is instructed by Glyn Blackburn from Alliance Gym in Liverpool. Jacob, who has autism will also be making his debut for the show. He has overcome a lot of challenges in life with Muay Thai and is a an inspiration for everyone.
In a short span of time, YOKKAO Next Generation Kids has built itself up as the premier junior Muay Thai event in Europe. Young prospects from UK and the region now have the best platform for showcasing their skills with wider exposure than ever before.
