Vorn Viva, Meas Chantha face ISKA title defences

Tem Moeun, President of the Cambodian Boxing Federation, and representatives of CTN TV station held a news conference yesterday to announce details of the International Sport Kickboxing Association (ISKA) world title fights to be staged at the indoor hall of Olympic Stadium on July 8. ISKA middleweight world champion Vorn Viva of Preah Khan Reach club will attempt to defend his belt against European middleweight champion Ben Barwise of England. Welterweight world champion Meas ‘the Dragon’ Chantha, who currently fights out of Sunrise Bradahl Serey club in Elizabeth, South Australia, will come up against the former holder, Englishman Tim ‘TNT’ Thomas. “Our boxers have grabbed the ISKA championships from foreign kickboxers, but now the foreigners have asked to fight the titles back from us,” said CTN vice president Pol Vibo. “I think this is a first in international kickboxing for Cambodia, so Vorn Viva and Meas Chantha must try hard in training to keep honour for our country.” TRANSLATED BY IN SOPHENG
