Coke Chunhawat Returns to Action

Thanks goes to Lynda Chunhawat for the information. A new fight has been added to the inaugural event of Lion Fight Promotions: Coke Chunhawat the WMC international champion will return to action versus USA standout Scotty Leffler. Coke recently gave his opinion on fighting American opponents and international opponents including Kevin Ross who will also be fighting on this very card. The event will be held February 12, 2011 at the Star of the Desert Arena, Primm, Nevada.

Kevin Ross will be fighting a very seasoned Thai opponent in Loh-Ngern Pitakkruchaiden. Loh-Ngern has fought the likes of Jomthong Chuwattana and many other top tier Muay Thai talent from the capital nation of Muay Thai.

Ross has recently busied himself internationally by training at Sitsongpeenong in Bangkok and fighting in the Isuzu Muay Thai marathon where he put on an impressive showing. Ross also recently fought Malaipet and defeated him in a very dominant fight promoted by Stand Up Promotions.
