Yokkao 12 is set to feature a colossal main event, as Yokkao -70kg world champion Jordan Watson will face off against Sanny Dahlbeck. Yokkao 12 and Yokkao 13 SuperShowdown goes down on Saturday, March 21 at Macron Stadium in Bolton, England.
Announced today at the famous Sitmonchai Gym in Kanchanaburi; Odenplan Fightgym’s Dahlbeck currently prepares for his upcoming fight against Yoshihiro Sato at K-1 World GP 2015, Japan.
23 years old Dahlbeck (27-4-1, 15 KOs) is considered by many one of Sweden’s most unprecedented prospects. He held the Nordic IFMA Muaythai Championship gold medallist 2010-2012, and Nordic WMC Muaythai Welterweight champion; which he gained by defeating Warren Stevelmens by decision and Sato by TKO.
Watson (43-10-2, 20 KOs) makes his return at Yokkao 12, having defeated Mickael Piscitello by third round TKO at Yokkao 10 to become the -70kg champion.
The 27-year-old is one of the best pound for pound fighters the United Kingdom have produced in recent years, and trains out of the world renowned Bad Company Gym (Yokkao Training Center UK) in Leeds, England.
With Watson and Dahlbeck set to meet in the main event of Yokkao 12, it adds to a night of action in Bolton that could be potentially bursting with fight of the year candidates.
The Yokkao 13 main event is a scintillating -65kg super-clash, when Pakorn PKSaenchaimuayhthaigym goes toe-to-toe with Liam Harrison. UK number one and Bad Company team mate of Watson, “The Hitman” is set to make his first appearance since injuring his shin in a win over Mehdi Zatout at SMASH Muay Thai 10, September, 2014.
Pakorn, is largely considered the number two muay thai fighter in the world, and took another step closer to the top of the ladder at Yokkao 11, where he defeated Greg Wootton to win the -65kg world title in a brutal unanimous decision win.
