Seng Makara ends five-year hiatus from arenas

Seng Makara is set to return to the ring for the first time since 2006 with a bout against Ung Vireak at TV5 boxing arena on Sunday. The 25-year-old from Kampong Speu, who has a 80-25 record with 15 knockouts, had previously beaten local champions such as Sen Bunthen, May Sopheap and Mich Channa. Makara, who fights out of Yuvakchun Boxing Club and has been working near the Thai border for the past five years, will face his Commando 911 Boxing Club opponent in the third feature fight at TV5. The winner is set to collect 300,000 riels (US$74.26), while the loser will limp away with 250,000 riels. “[Makara] will get more cash bonuses if he attracts a big crowd,” said TV5 kickboxing promoter Seng Kadeka.
