SELLOUT EXPECTED REMATCH
MARCUS V SCHILLING IN VEGAS

2 May 2012


Most reserved tickets have been sold for the rematch of top world light heavyweight Muay Thai contenders USA's Joe Schilling and Canada's Simon Marcus at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on May 12.

The rematch is likely to have more fury than the first encounter with the winner challenging the great Russian champion Artem Levin in one of seven WBC World Titles to be staged at the Bangkok Impact Arena on June 9.

Marcus is confident he will beat Schilling for the second time.

" I'm sure I?ll win," he confidently predicted. But Schilling - the hometown Vegas favourite- said he will be giving all he's got and expects to win after being outmaneuvered in the last contest, which resulted in his TKO loss after being grapple driven onto the canvass.

Since his last fight with Schilling, Marcus won the WMPF world championship at the Muay Thai festival in Bangkok and then went to China to fight and win against two opponents in the one staged contest.

If he beats Schilling Marcus will a month later fight Artem Levin for the undisputed WBC Muay Thai World Light Heavyweight Title, and be one of the 14 stars to participate in the seven WBC world championships promoted by BEC-Tero in the "Battle of Belts" at the Impact Arena Muay Thai extravaganza in Thailand on June 9.

The super event will be televised for three hours across Thailand and broadcast worldwide.
