Yodsanklai Fairtex, Muay Thai star Bangkok workout ahead of Andy Souwer rematch in Tokyo
Yodsanklai Fairtex is back in the ring on Sunday March 31. Going through the ropes in Tokyo, the famed Muay Thai fighter faces K-1 kickboxing legend Andy Souwer in a highly anticipated rematch. The pair battles it out on the ONE Championship fight card billed as “New Era”. The event marks the promotion’s debut in Japan.
The open workout session was held earlier today (Mar. 1) at The Motif Boxing BKK Gym in Bangkok. “Yod” was accompanied by his Thai-fellow Rodtang Jitmuangnon who also partakes in the upcoming show facing off Hakim Hamech.
“I am honored and excited to be part of ONE Championship’s first-ever show in Tokyo, Japan, a country with a rich background and love for martial arts,” said The Contender Asia 2008 winner Yodsanklai Fairtex. “More importantly, I have the opportunity to avenge a previous loss to Andy Souwer, and I get to do it in front of the Japanese fans. I promise to deliver an exciting performance for everyone there.”
ONE Championship “New Era” is headlined by Eduard Folayang in defense of his ONE Lightweight title against the former champion Shinya Aoki. The complete fight card can be found here.
