Hun Sen Championship returns with 10 fights

The Hun Sen Boxing Championships make a welcome return this weekend after more than a decade in the wilderness.

Ten bouts will be held at the indoor hall of Olympic Stadium from 4:30pm tomorrow, co-hosted by the Cambodian Boxing Federation and Apsara TV.

The 20 fighters hail from 10 different clubs nationwide, and all are Cambodian with the exception of French boxer Mariette, fighting out of Ei Phouthang Club, who will contest the day’s only female fight.

The first three bouts will see winners awarded three million riels (US$749), while the remaining seven champs will receive four million riels each.

Losers will all collect two million riels.
