Local kickboxing stars Bheut Kam, Nuon Soriya and Thun Sophea are set to fight international fighters – who train in Thailand – at TV5 boxing arena Friday.
TOP Cambodian kickboxers will face foreign fighters this Friday at Old Stadium in an event organised by TV5 to celebrate the Water Festival.
TV5 representative Seng Kadeka said that the three foreign opponents have a wealth of experience in training and professional fighting in
Thailand, although he noted that this will be the first time for them in a Cambodian ring.
Bheut Kam from Saravorn Keila Club will take on 18-year-old Australian Harlee Avison. Avison, who first started training in kickboxing at the tender age of 5, has been a professional fighter in Thailand for over two years. During his 29 bouts, including three in Bangkok’s famous Lumpini stadium, the young Aussie has won 23, and lost 6.
Experienced local legend Nuon Soriya from Ministry of Interior Club will meet 24-year-old Nakamaru. The Japanese man boasts a 21-3 professional in Thailand.
