BKFC Thailand 2 Iconic Impact
The world's f(opens in a new tab)astest-growing and most devastating combat sport, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is BACK!!
BKFC Thailand 2 will be headlined by two title fights. In the main event, former boxing multi-division world champion Sirimongkhon Lamthuam will be looking to add the inaugural BKFC Thailand Light Heavyweight Championship belt to his collection in his home country against Russian Muay Thai standout ‘Street Fight Mike’ Mikhail Vetrila.
The co-main event will put the inaugural BKFC Thailand Strawweight Championship title on the line as French regional Muay Thai and Lethwei world champion Souris Manfredi faces Greek striker and multiple Muay Thai champion Fani Peloumpi.
The card will host several other exciting bouts, including decorated kickboxer Tofan Pirani versus Muay Thai, boxing and Olympic level wrestler Arash Mardani, and BKFC Thailand 1: ‘The Game Changer’ main event winner Keivan Soleimani versus 300-fight combat sports veteran Paitoon “Rock” Jaikom.
There are also three rematches set between bitter rivals. At heavyweight, Iran’s Akbar Karimi will try to get revenge on former Muay Thai foe Steve ‘Panda’ Banks of the USA. In the lightweight division, a pair of 25-year-olds from Thailand’s underground fighting circuit are set to go to battle in a grudge match that has been brewing and growing attention on social media for a few years when Naeem Binhar goes up against Sornchai “Maseng'' Kantiphong. Finally, the originally scheduled main event for BKFC Thailand 1: ‘The Game Changer’ between Tee Jay Chang and Fabiano Hawthorne has been rebooked, as their bad blood continues to boil over, the rematch of their prior bare-knuckle boxing bout which Hawthorne won by controversial fourth-round stoppage will take place.
Pongpisan ‘Ton’ Chunyong, a crowd favourite, returns to action following a very impressive victory at BKFC Thailand 1: ‘The Game Changer’ to face 200-fight boxing and Muay Thai veteran Sudan ‘Sitpholek’ Kulubon. Another bout guaranteed to impress features (opens in a new tab)20-year-old Thanatorn ‘Mahaheng’ Kamwan, who has already headlined Muay Thai shows in some of Thailand’s biggest stadiums but faces a stiff test against 78-fight Muay Thai veteran Thodsaphon ‘Konkom’ Wannahat. Another exciting bout features Former Asian boxing champion Sadudee Srimueang, who will make his BKFC debut against Thailand’s sixth-ranked super welterweight boxer Phatiphan ‘Tiger’ Krungklang.
