Olympic gold medalist Manus Boonumnong headlines this weeks MxMuayXtreme
Its Friday the 3rd of February here in Bangkok and this authors new regular hobby on the evenings of the aforementioned day is a visit to witness the craziness that is MXMuayXtreme.
Tonight sees ex Olympic boxing champion, Manus, return to the TV studio/arena for his second fight on MX. He fought on the inaugural event and this time around he has actually trained for the fight.
His opposition tonight is a German boy, Franz Borchardt and the fight is set at 80kgs. I expect another slugfest from the veteran, Manus. The question is, can the German fighter bring it?
There are seven bouts scheduled on this evenings card and also it will be fun to have ex Ch7 stadium favorite, Bovy, fighting.
He, too, is fighting for the second time on MX, having lost his first fight a few weeks back.
There are fighters from England, Australia, China, Iran, Scotland and two Germans all taking on Thai opposition.
All fights are 3x3 minute rounds and the boxers wear heavily padded 4oz MMA gloves.
