Glasgow-born Ricardo Pisaneschi, 28, is a Western Australia’s muay thai-boxer. He is fighting out of Kao Sok Muay Thai Gym in Forrestdale, WA, under the patronage of Darren Curovic. Pisaneschi is a multiple state champion who has earned the credibility to compete for prestigious WKN title.

Early 2016 promoter Patrick Talbot booked Pisaneschi to showcase in the main card of his up-coming edition of Nemesis Fight Shows. He scheduled a Scotland native to battle Queenslander Benny Mahoney in the Australian welterweight championship.

Pisaneschi has run a winning stake for over a year until he faced a flick loss to a rival Chris Watt in their rematch early April. WKN Australia revised previously announced championship for May overlooking the latest winner of the Pisaneschi v Watt bout to represent the state of Western Australia against Queensland. Promoter Talbot considered the replacement, however Watt has already been booked for another event. Concluding, Talbot outlined that an incomprehensive split decision loss that Pisaneschi has faced, does not interfere neither his credibility nor his Top 2 rank.

Pisaneschi will certainly give his all aiming to regain the glory, with no questions left whatsoever. He faces an elite fighter Benny Mahoney, 21, from Gold Coast, Queensland. Mahoney represents Boonchu Gym, moreover he represents Australian muaythai legend John Wayne Parr. Aussie celebrity will bring his 21F-6L protegee to Western Australia to top up their collection with the second prestigious WKN belt. In 2010 JWP claimed WKN World title in Perth himself.
