Originally matched against UK legend Liam Harrison for the main event at YOKKAO 48, Jeremy Payet is now out of the fight on 7 March. The French fighter sustained an injury in the course of preparation for the coming bout and will pull out from the show, but we expect to see him back in action on our stage again in the future.
Harrison’s return to Bolton will not be hampered and the main event still goes on. Stepping up to the challenge is Spanish Muay Thai champion, Khyzer Hayat Nawaz. Nicknamed “The Destroyer”, Khyzer Hayat has competed on the world stage in numerous notable promotions. The 26-year-old holds a record of 35 wins in 45 fight appearances with 14 by way of knockout. Making his promotional debut at YOKKAO 48, we expect Khyzer Hayat to go all-out to prove himself against his world-renowned opponent.
Harrison is unfazed by the young and hungry contender, with training fully ramped up for the Super-Lightweight face-off. The multi-time world champion is coming off two back-to-back KO victories and he will be aiming for the hattrick on 7 March. This is a long-awaited fight appearance for UK fans since Harrison’s last Bolton appearance was in 2017 and many will be looking forward to catch his “hitman” style live in action.
YOKKAO 47-48 features a roster of the best that the UK has to offer with exciting match-ups including Brian Totty vs Jack Kennedy, Joe Craven vs Niall Brown, Dean James vs Daren Rolland, Niamh Kinehan vs Nora Cornolle, and Stuart Stabler vs Jonno Chipchase.
