CANADIAN MARCUS TO TEST
KO SENSATION JOE SCHILLING

25 Jan 2012


USA WBC MUAYTHAI World Light Heavyweight Interim Champion Joe Schilling faces his toughest test when he meets undefeated Canadian challenger Simon Marcus in Las Vegas on 25 February.

While the WBC Interim world champion Schilling is riding high with 10 KOs in 12 fights his tussle with Marcus is a dangerous encounter.

A loss would be a major setback for his showdown with the great Russian world champion Artem Levin.

Marcus from Toronto has promised he?ll test Schilling and isn?t worried about the USA superstar's prediction of another KO victory.

Las Vegas promoter Scot Kent said Schilling had become the breakaway superstar of Muay Thai in USA but has warned that his star attraction will have to stay focused and be prepared for his Canadian opponent.

"Everyone wants to see Schilling fight Muay Thai. The crowd loves his aggression, but even so he?ll need to be at his very best to beat Marucus."

On the same event another Las Vegas rising star and WBC International Middleweight Champion Chaz Mulkey 7-4 with 3 KO's hopes to continue a 5 fight winning streak against Miami?s two-time world champion Gregory Choplin who has lost only 9 times with 50 wins and 22 KO?s.

Meanwhile the first full rules Muay Thai event with legal elbows and knees was held in New York last Friday (20 January).
