Yuk Yakil relaunches career after year off

Local kickboxer Yuk Yakil of Battambang’s Physical Education Club will return to the ring after almost an entire year out helping work on his family’s pig farm.

The 24-year-old is set to face his familiar foe Chey Kosal, who recently switched stables from Lion Sport Club to Preah Khan Club, at Bayon TV arena on Saturday.

“I don’t think I have much chance at defeating Kosal, who is such a strong fighter, as I haven’t been fighting for almost a year.

However, I am willing to do all my best,” Yakil told the Post. Kosal, meanwhile, said he had “no concerns” coming in to the fight. “Yakil’s strength is merely his energy, but I know how to beat him to his knees with my tactics.”
