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.
