Kang heads WBC Muay Thai bill in Beijing; fly champ Naito targets Xiong : On January 11th , 2009
China's fighting hero Kang En moves into the front ranks of Muay Thai when he takes on the USA superstar Kevin Ross for the WBC Muay Thai interim international super-lightweight championship in Beijing, China next Sunday.
Kang En, an elite martial artist, has impressed fight pundits with his classy Muay Thai skills, speed and courage. He will be fully tested by Ross who is trained by Master Toddy and is the shining star of Muay Thai in Nevada and a top attraction in Las Vegas.
Kang En's Muaythai record is 16 wins against one loss. He has beaten quality opponents such as Thailand's Kongnapa and American Joe Sarkissian.
The winner will fight Denmark's Ashley Beck to unify the WBC Muay Thai super lightweight international division. Beck was to defend his title against Kang En but had to withdraw after suffering an injury.
On the same card there will be two WBC Muay Thai super fights. Thailand's super middleweight superstar and WBC champion Lamsongkram Chuwatana will fight Europe's highly-rated Youness Elmshannri (74 kilos), and top-ranked Jomthong Chuwatanna takes on the Japanese sensation Atom Yamada (60 kilos). These two classic match-ups will herald the arrival of professional Muay Thai into China. The WBC Muay Thai-sanctioned Beijing blockbuster will be a huge attraction for the many martial arts fans in China's capital city.
The event has been approved by official China sports authorities and will be staged in the famous Beijing Olympic Center.
The event follows a highly successful WBC convention last November in Chengdu, which cemented professional boxing and Muay Thai in China.
The WBC has given its approval for the staging of the first-ever professional boxing world title in Shanghai, China, when Japan's Daisuke Naito will defend his WBC flyweight world title against China's rising star Xiong Zhao Zhong. That will be the first time that a Chinese male boxer has ever fought for a WBC world title, and the first time that Japan and China have ever contested a professional world boxing championship. The historic fight will be held either late March or early April.
