In January, Manachai made his Italian debut at the long-running event, “The Night of Kick and Punch” for his first fight of this year. The Thai wrecking ball delivered a smashing performance by finishing the the fight by TKO in the first round. After making a strong impression in Italy, Manachai is now poised for a return to the beautiful country on April 8th. He is set to face Christian Zahe on the Parabellum promotion by Luca Pigliafreddo from Yamabushi Gym, which hosted the recently sold-out YOKKAO Seminar with Saenchai.
The fight is set at 66kg for 3x3-minute rounds. Christian Zahe is a prominent competitor on the European Muay Thai circuits. He has fought notable opponents such as Jimmy Vienot of France and Daniel Zahra of Malta. The last 2 years saw the 35 year-old competing on high-profile shows in Thailand such as Super Muay Thai and Thai Fight, going up against Changpuek MTA and PTT Petchrungrueng. In 2015 Christian successfully clinched the WKN World super lightweight title in K-1. He also holds the WPMF and WKF World championship titles. Manachai has been undefeated over the past year, having accumulated 8 back-to-back wins and the streak sees no sign of stopping.
Most recently and notably, the YOKKAO young fight star delivered a dominating victory against Pongsiri PKSaenchaiGym at the renowned Channel 7 Stadium. After a short break, Manachai has quickly resumed his intense training program back at YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok. Other than the fight against Zahe in Italy, April will be a busy month for Manachai who is also set to appear as the headlining act at YOKKAO Next Generation Southampton on April 29th. Later this month on 24th March, Manachai will star in the main event on Channel 3 against Attachai Tor Morsi. Stay connected with YOKKAO via social media for all the latest updates.
