Kickboxer Roeung Sophorn has made the 57-kilogram weight category his own in the Kingdom’s boxing rings.
Over the past twelve months, the 21-year-old fighter from Kandal province has notched up 26 victories without a single loss.
“I started my boxing career after I failed high school exam and because of my poverty” said Sophorn, who fights out of Khemarak Keila club under the guidance of coach Kim Lavy.
He’s completed double wins over the likes of Kout Bonhim and Soung Sovantha and has beaten Son Vireak three times over the last year’s bouts.
This afternoon, Roeung Sophorn hopes to continue his unbeaten run as he takes on Ngeth Rotha of Interior Ministry Club. TRANSLATED BY IN SOPHENG
