Cambodian champion kickboxer Keo Roomchang seized the FAMK (Fédération des Arts Martiaux Khmers) title in France on Saturday via a second round knockout of  French fighter Salem Messoun at the Pradal Boran de Hour Club arena in Bussy-Saint Georges.

Back at home, Keo Sam Ang, father and coach of Keo Romchang, told the Post he was very happy to hear of his son’s victory, whilst noting that the bout had been hastily scheduled after Romchang’s planned opponent in their 66kg European Championship match had been involved in a car accident.

“However, he will fight in the European Championship on April 21,” added Keo Sam Ang.

Romchang flew out on his second trip to France on February 19 for the European Championships set of fights, in which he needs two wins out of three to claim the belt.
