Battle of generations

Two generations of Kampong Cham fighters will clash Saturday when veteran Nuon Soriya takes on rising star Cheam Adam at the CTN boxing arena. One of the most recognisable names in Kun Khmer, Nuon Soriya, 29, began his career as a kickboxer 18 years ago on the village circuit in Banteay Meanchey. 21-year-old Cheam Adam first gained recognition as a fighter in 2008 as the inaugural winner of CTN’s reality series Kun Khmer Champion. Both fighters are coming off rare knockout losses, Nuon Soriya to Frenchman Yvonick Hubert, and Cheam Adam to Morn Kimlong. Also on the card, ISKA world middleweight champion Vorn Viva will face Long Sophal. Fights begin Saturday at 2:30pm.
