Sen Rady set to fight Laos’s Tharng Bang for CBF title

Popular Apsara Kun Khmer Club fighter Sen Rady will face Laotian opponent Tharng Bang, in a 57kg Cambodian Boxing Federation title bout today in Takeo provincial town, to be broadcast live on Apsara TV.

Tharng Bang has a feared left kick, touted as the best along the Mekong River, and he holds a 65-10-5 record including 16 victories inside the distance. He has previously beaten Cambodia’s Em Lithou but was edged by Yen Dina.

Sen Rady told the Post: “It’s hard to predict a winner in this fight because I know [Tharng Bang] is good, but I will try my best to secure the title.”

The match will be followed by a 65kg contest between Royal Cambodian Armed Forces Club’s Phal Sophat (126-20-4) and young Chinese prospect Xie Wei, who has won 29 of his 32 fights with 20 by way of knockout.
