A NIGHT OF ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP ACTION IS SET FOR ITALY ON JANUARY 26

5 Jan 2019


YOKKAO 35 and Yokkao 36 both take place on Saturday the 26th of January in Italy, with two WBC MuayThai titles being hosted on the duel event.

Thailand’s Yodchai YOKKAOSaenchaiGym will face off against Jonathan Astarita for the vacant WBC MuayThai International lightweight title.

Yodchai has built a reputation as a highly exciting fighter to watch in the ring, with a string of outstanding performances over the past two years in both domestic and international competitions. Fighting since the age of eight, it’s now his time to shine as the 23-year old finally gets his major title shot at the coming YOKKAO 35 Italian showdown.

Astarita is a Muay Thai and K1 Italy champion. Like Yodchai, the 29- year old Italian fighter is known for his technical ring style with skillful sweeps to rival the best. It’s a clash of skills and power with both fighters looking for a strong finish at YOKKAO 35. It’s all or nothing, as only one will make it home with the WBC gold.

Scottish fighter Spencer Brown will collide with Italian fighter Luca Roma for the vacant WBC MuayThai super-lightweight European title.

Originally from Irvine, Scotland, Spencer has spent the last two years building his Muay Thai career out of the famed YOKKAO Training Center, in Bangkok. He is currently ranked in the WBC Super-Lightweight world top 20. A statement defining victory at YOKKAO 36 will secure him a better spot and see him propelled up in the global rankings and ultimately a shot at a world title.

Holding a record of 37 wins in 49 fights, Luca Roma offers no easy path for Spencer in their impending battle. A former WMO world champion, Roma will look to add a WBC belt to his credentials. This is a battle for WBC glory and with what we have witnessed from both fighters in the past, we are in for fireworks in this contest.

On behalf of WBC MuayThai Chairman, Pol. General Kovid Bhakdibhumi, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman and the entire team at the WBC we would like thank Stefania Picelli and her Yokkao team for their continuing cooperation and wish all the fighters the best of luck for their upcoming contests.
