It has been a long time coming but get ready for one of the most anticipated clashes come the 13th October at Bolton Macron. The second match-up for the YOKKAO 31 – 32 double bill has just been confirmed and will bring together 2 of the top fighters in the promotion. It’s the English talent, Jack Kennedy going head on against Irish KO extraordinaire, Craig Coakley!
A regular name in the YOKKAO UK promotion, Jack Kennedy took home a loss in his last appearance when he faced Thai super star, Singdam. However, he went the distance with 5 rounds of intense battling, proving that he can hold his own against a multi-time Lumpinee and Thailand champion. Prior to YOKKAO 30, Kennedy held an undefeated record on 5 YOKKAO UK outings and he will now attempt to kickstart another round of victories. The 26 year-old fights out of Imperial Thai boxing Academy in Southport.
Kennedy’s opponent, Craig Coakley has acquired quite the reputation for knocking his opponents out in the ring. His spectacular KO-winning record includes 2 stunning knockouts in his last 2 outings on YOKKAO shows. The most recent of which took place at YOKKAO 30 where the Irish fighter served a rib-cracking KO to Chris Whittle, ending the bout in round one no less. The Dubliner is expected to go into the ring and look for a fast finish to score a KO hat trick on YOKKAO shows. Coakley fights out of Dublin’s Lionheart Muay Thai. The clash between the 2 fighters is set at 63.5 kg.
YOKKAO 31 – 32 will be headlined by UK number one, Liam Harrison and Thai phenom, Superlek Kiatmoo9. The latter has already been matched up against Jonathan Haggerty for the YOKKAO 31 main event. Match-making is underway and bouts will be announced in the weeks ahead.
