Kun Khmer Warriors to air on MyTV in early May

Local TV channel MyTV is set to screen a brand new format boxing show entitled Kun Khmer Warriors Championship from May 5.

The program will feature 24 fighters from across the Kingdom who have been trained in Kun Khmer kickboxing, wrestling and the ancient martial art of Bokator, with fights held every Sunday in weight classes including 57kg, 60kg and 65kg.

The participants will hold practice sessions with six different coaches, two for each discipline, from March 25 in Phnom Penh and will live together in a flat paid for by parent station CTN.

The show run is expected to last seven months, with broadcasts from 7:30pm to 9:30pm every Sunday on MyTV.
