Muay Thai Lovers have been expecting to hear who would be set to fight vs Jordan Watson after the collective decision from promoters and YOKKAO to change his opponent last week. Jordan Watson was previously scheduled to fight Crice Boussouku, but due to a few problems that arose after he left Team Nasser-X, his partecipation at YOKKAO 15 was put under review.
In regards to Crice Boussouku, YOKKAO President Mrs. Doungjai Tananan states: "We have a responsability to all our fans, after that Crice Boussoukou left Team Nasser-X, we were not sure about his continued participation at this event. In addition his way of adding requests to our team was not professional at all. We have worked with more than 300 TOP fighters since 2011, for us, to be a professional fighter means not only to be one in the ring but also in life."
THE FIGHT will be nothing less with Jordan Watson vs Jordann Pikeur from the Holland's famous Mike's Gym, a much bigger challenge for Jordan Watson. Jordann Pikeur participated with an incredible performance recently at the last K-1 Tournament in Japan defeating in the Quaterfinal's Round 2 Daiki Watabe by TKO (2 knockdowns), then in Semifinal he took down the current YOKKAO World Champion Sanny Dahlbeck by TKO (with 2 knockouts) in Round 2. Unfortunately in the Finals Jordann lost by KO, but that is part of the game.
Jordann Pikeur and his trainer will land in the UK for the first time together with his manager Mike Passenier who will arrive directly from USA to meet up with YOKKAO promoters to discuss future cooperation. Knowing that Jordan Watson lost his YOKKAO World Title vs Sanny Dahlbeck and Jordann Pikeur lost his last fight, makes them both more ready for vengeance, ready for a Fight that will leave you breathless from the ring of the bell. Just wait and see, see you soon in Bolton!
