The Battle of The Englishmen: Chris Whittle vs Jack Kennedy

Chris Whittle and Jack Kennedy will come together for a clash in a battle of Englishmen at the upcoming YOKKAO 28. YOKKAO fans in Europe will be familiar with the two fighters, especially Kennedy, who is making his 5th YOKKAO event appearance. Fighting out of the Imperial Thaiboxing Academy in Southport, Kennedy is a Golden Belt English Champion, as well as a ISKA British title holder. With an impressive run of victories winning 24 out of 25 fights, he is building a solid reputation as one of the most talented Muay Thai fighters in UK today. Kennedy’s opponent is the formidable Chris Whittle, who fights out of Frank’s Gym in Manchester. At 20 years of age, the young Whittle already has 3 titles to his name including a WBC National Champion, WRSA British Champion, and a recent ISKA European Champion. A rising star in the UK fight scene, he has 25 fights with 21 wins to his name, so this will be a very closely-matched fight. Whittle will move up in weight after fighting at 63 kg in YOKKAO 23 to fight at 65 kg this time. To date, both fighters have been on a undefeated run in their appearances in the YOKKAO events and will seek to further their winning streaks. With so much at stake, this will be an all-or-nothing bout to look forward to. The card for the coming event at Bolton Macron Stadium is stacked with some of the very best fights, including 2 title defense by current YOKKAO world champions, Liam Harrison and Jordan Watson. Other confirmed matchups include Superlek Kiatmoo9 vs Christopher Shaw, Jonathan Haggerty vs JA Kiatphontip, Rungarai Kiatmoo9 vs Dan McGowan, and Amy Pirnie vs Josefine Lindgren Knutsson.
