Manachai and Abdurahman Ready for War at YOKKAO Southampton
After months in preparation, YOKKAO Next Generation Southampton is now just one day away from action. Fans can expect 14 exciting bouts with 6 A-Class bouts, 3 B-Class bouts and 5 C-Class bouts. The one that everyone is looking forward to will be none other than the main event cracker between Manachai and home-town GLORY K1 star – Mo Abdurahman. The weigh-ins have been completed for all the fighters with Manachai coming in at 65.2 kg vs Mo Abdurahman at 65 kg. The slight weight disparity will be largely offset with almost 19 hours of travel including a 4-hour delay of flight on Manachai's journey to UK. It's fair to say that the scale is well-balanced for this match-up. Manachai has been running an undefeated campaign in his last 10 outings. At the weigh-in press conference, the YOKKAO fighter was beaming with confidence. When asked by UK Fight Scene reporter about his coming match against rising star Mo Abdurahman, Manachai expressed his confidence about his level and remains unfazed by the challenge. The 21 year-old has after all, faced many of the toughest opponents in the sport and backed by a most intensive training regime at YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok. Other than the headlining act, a few YOKKAO official event alumni will also grace the event, including Jake Purdy and Ammari Diedrick. Both fighters will face off against each other and is another top-level match-up to look out for. The event is set to take place at Oceana Southampton. Doors open at 13:00 with fights starting at 14:00. Tickets are still available on yokkao.com/events. Support the local lads and don't miss the chance to see Manachai in action live in the ring.
