Yokkao Searching For An American Fighter For Yokkao 21 - 22 in Hong Kong

On Friday, October 28th in Hong Kong Yokkao will present Yokkao 21 and 22, featuring some of the very best in the world of muay thai. Scheduled for Yokkao 22 is Saenchai, although he is still opponent-less. While it isn't a lock, Yokkao is currently searching for an American fighter to step into the ring for Yokkao 21 and 22. So there could be a chance of fighting the great Saenchai or any of the other, top-named Thai fighters at their disposal. The other name that we know is Manachai, who has been training with Saenchai. Another name to add to that list is the ever-impressive Phetmorakot Wor. Sangprapai.

Their next set of events takes place on October 8th in the UK, though, featuring Jordan Watson vs. Ben Hodge, Liam Harrison vs. Fabio Pinca, Manachai vs Panicos Yusuf, Amy Pirnie vs Dakota Ditcheva, Jake Purdy vs Brad Standton, Luke Turner and many more.

Yokkao in Talks to Bring Popular Brand of Gear and Fight Shows to the US

Yokkao is one of those brands that started out small, then was able to grow with their products increasing in quality and prominence while they started sponsoring bigger and bigger name fighters and even hosting their fights at Yokkao branded events. After a whirlwind of attention (over 1.7 million Instagram views in ten days), Yokkao is looking to further enter the US market. 

While Yokkao has dipped its toes in the US waters before, they are looking now to find a distributor for Yokkao products to cut costs for those in the US looking to attain said goods, as well as places to host seminars, workshops and fight events. A large volume of their products are shipped internationally to fans and fighters in the US and having a distributor in the US will allow for prices to drop significantly.

The ATMA Yokkao Training Center in Hong Kong will be responsible with staging the next, big Yokkao event. The event, scheduled for October 28th promises to be a huge event with Yokkao taking on the burgeoning Chinese kickboxing and muay thai market with an outdoor event headlined by none other than Saenchai himself.

In addition, expect other Yokkao fighters to participate, including Manachai and 16-year-old female phenom Fah Yokkaosaenchaigym and some of the brightest stars from prior Yokkao events in the UK who made a big impression on the world. 

More information will be released soon.

Saenchai Training BJJ at Yokkao Gym in Bangkok, Possibly Preparing For MMA

When you've conquered the world of muay thai as thoroughly as Saenchai has, what would be stopping you from branching out more? That's exactly what Saenchai seems to be doing as he approaches his 36th birthday. We recently saw him competing for GLORY under kickboxing rules and now Saenchai is rolling and training BJJ at the Yokkao gym in Bangkok, perhaps preparing for trying his hand at MMA.

Saenchai's name is synonymous with muay thai and his virtuoso-equse skills transcend the sport.

WATCH: Yokkao 17's Amazing Manachai YOKKAOSaenchaiGym vs. Luke Turner

Yokkao events in the UK have long-been regarded as some of the best shows around by those who've attended them. The outpouring on social media afterwards is always something to behold and it always bums me out that it doesn't air live anywhere. Yokkao always takes care of everyone, though, by filming the events and putting up the videos later. This fight is from Yokkao 17 between Manachai YOKKAOSaenchaiGym and Luke Turner is just one of the many and Yokkao has shared it via their Facebook.

There will be more to come, we're told, so keep your eyes on Yokkao's Facebook page.
