Applications are still coming in fervently and it is expected that the 400 competitor slots for the Open will be completely filled up in no time.
The YOKKAO UK Open is the latest project to focus on growing the UK Muay Thai scene. The event will provide the stage for amateur fighters of all ages to test their skills and a chance for glory.
