Kao Roomchang flies out to face French fights

Kao Roomchang headed to France on Saturday to compete in three kickboxing bouts at 64 kilograms.

The Battambang native (74-7-3, KOs 27) will fight the first on March 3, and needs two wins out of three to capture a light welterweight belt.

According to his father and trainer Kao Sam Ang, the boxer’s three-month trip abroad is being sponsored by Dr Meam Sy Sara, President of Kbach Kun Boran Khmer Club in Paris.

Kao Roomchang had already made a successful visit to France last April, when he won one fight by points decision and a second by knockout in the third round.

Earlier this year, he was crowned champion of Bayon TV’s Cement Phnom Championship after gaining revenge on bitter rival Long Sovandoeun.
