SuperShowDown featured last year the smashing fight of Saenchai vs Pakorn, an epic battle of the titans to a sold out crowd in Glasgow.
Stefania Picelli states: “I met Brizo Calder last year when he asked me about Saenchai for his show, then with the help of Yokkao he signed Pakorn Sakyothin for what had been a superlative fight in England. When both fighters came back to Thailand, they talked with Yokkao about the warm hospitality, the welcome and good treatment that the promoter gave them. This is the kind of people we need to work with. Finally, the Yokkao fans in England will have the possibility to visit a really Muay Thai exciting event…see you soon England!”
