Lion Sports Club rocked by departure of boxers

The renowned Lion Sport boxing club is facing further difficulties following the death of its founder Treang Sossay on October 26, with a mass exodus of some of its most talented fighters.

Former Lion Sports stalwarts Chey Kosal, Cham Ven, Van Chanvey, Van Chanvet, Sing Savorn and Lun Sokheng have signed contracts with Preah Khan Reach Club.

“I am so sorry to our master Sossay. He spent the time, effort, and even his own money on their food to train his fighters until they are of a high standard. But Preah Khan [Club] have done nothing but get the fruit,” Lion Sports Club worker Oung Sesina told the Post.

However, Preah Khan Club owner Phan Naphat maintained that they had done everything above board. “We know how moral ethics means a lot to people here, so we have given transfer fees to [Sossay’s] family,” he said.
