Yodsanklai Fairtex is back in the ring this coming Saturday November 16 in Beijing, China. “The Boxing Computer” partakes in the ONE Championship event titled “Age of Dragons”. On Wednesday the promotion announced a new opponent going up against the famed Thai fighter, Jamal Yusupov of Russia.
Yodsanklai was initially lined up against the Ukrainian competitor Sasha Moisa, who has been withdrawn due to an undisclosed reason. “Kherow” Yusupov is “an experienced veteran who is based in Beijing and has three Russian kickboxing and Muay Thai titles to his name,” reads the announcement.
The contest is scheduled for three rounds at catchweight with the limit of 73 kg. The bout proceeds in 4 ounce mixed martial arts gloves under Muay Thai rules.
Yodsanklai Fairtex last fought in May, when he suffered the defeat by unanimous decision against Samy Sana. Before that he was riding the win-streak since May 2012, including over 30 victories, against Andy Souwer, Luis Regis, among others.
Yusupov has competed in various promotions in China, including Wu Lin Feng and Kunlun Fight. He is coming off the win by TKO in the third round earned against Liao Shiwu in October.
In the main event of ONE Age of Dragons Ilias Ennahachi defends his flyweight kickboxing title against Wang Wenfeng. In the co-main event Tarik Khbabez and Roman Kryklia battle it out for the inaugural light heavyweight kickboxing belt. The rest of the card features a series of MMA, kickboxing and Muay Thai bouts.
