Manachai: "I can't wait to fight Stephen Meleady!"
In less than 3 weeks’ time, YOKKAO returns to the city of Hong Kong for another night of frenetic action on 11th September. As always, the event promotion team is bent on putting up another great show for fans with the most exciting matchups. The latest addition to the fight card features YOKKAO’s young star fighter Manachai against Carlos Araya from Spain. [caption id="attachment_3649" align="alignright" width="300"] Muay Thai Fighter: Carlos Araya[/caption] Carlos Araya is an European WMC Champion with a fighting record that speaks for itself: an astounding 43 wins in 50 fights. Araya fights out of Shoothon Gym located in the beautiful Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife. He has fought mainly in Spanish and European promotions but has ventured out to fighting globally in recent years. The ripped fighter is determined to make his mark on the global stage and a win on YOKKAO 25 against an elite fighter will certainly be a breakthrough in his career. Araya’s quest for glory will not be an easy one as he is up against Manachai, one of the top young fighters from the YOKKAO Fight Team. Fresh off 2 consecutive wins at YOKKAO Next Generation in Suraburi and the All-Star Fight event respectively, Manachai will look to add another win for a hat trick. Despite being only 21 year-old, he may have an advantage not just with a career of close to 300 fights but also the best mentors in camp mates, Saenchai, Singdam and Pakorn. YOKKAO 25 - 26 promises to top the previous editions with the triple headlining acts of Saenchai, Singdam and Manachai. Tickets are moving faster as the date draws nearer. Mark the calendar and save the date for Monday, 11th September 2017 at the Rotunda Hall 2 at KITEC (Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre).
