Eight picked to vie for next Kubota Championship title

Following the successful completion of the Kubota Cambodian Boxing Championship for 57kg fighters last Sunday, the agricultural machinery company, in cooperation with the Cambodian Amateur Boxing Federation and Bayon TV, is set to launch a new tournament for 65kg combatants.

“We would like to organise the second edition, which we expect to be even better, although the objective of the championship remains the same – to promote Cambodian boxing and showcase the fighters’ strength and bravery,” chief event organiser Virakpong Virakbutra told reporters during a press conference at Bayon TV station in Steung Meanchey district yesterday.

Eight boxers have already been selected to contest the preliminary stage on August 31 at the Vietnam Circus Centre opposite the National Assembly: Keo Virak, Phan Sovan, Nov Sitha, Som Ang Douch, Thai Bun Han, Phan Bunmao, Thea Nureach and Sol Bunhov.
