Two WBC MUAYTHAI World Titles will be staged in Las Vegas at Stardust Casino on 19 August.
USA superstars Clifton Brown and Marvin "The Beastman" Eastman will fight for the WBC Muaythai World Heavyweight Title and - on the same card - Thailand's undefeated WBC World Super Welterweight champion Yodsaenklai will defend his title against Australia's legend warrior John Wayne Parr.
The Las Vegas WBC MUAYTHAI extravaganza is a focus event for the thousands of Thais who are celebrating the 60th anniversary of HM the King's accession to the throne.
Both world championships will be broadcast by ESPN through USA and Latin America as well as live to Thailand.
"This is the biggest Muaythai event to be ever held in the USA. To have two WBC world titles in the Las Vegas arena is as big as it gets," said promoter Master Toddy in Las Vegas. "There is this tremendous buzz all over the USA that, finally, Muaythai is coming to Las Vegas with everything."
The match-up between Yodsaenklai and John Wayne Parr is the second time these fighters will contest a WBC world title.
Yodsaenklai scored a one point victory over JWP on Australia's Gold Coast to take the title. Parr then went up a weight division to fight Steve Wakeling for the world Middleweight title which Wakeling won in a split decision.
"I'm a better fighter as a Super Welterweight. I can make weight without any problem. I am ready to fight Yodsaenklai. It will be a war for sure."
JWP has a strong fan base in Las Vegas where he has trained.
"This will be my third chance to get a WBC green belt and fighting for the WBC World Title in Las Vegas is as big as it gets."

Germany's super welterweight sensation Mark Vogel will challenge the winner of Yodsaenklai and JWP for the World Super Welterweight Title Germany this November.
WBC Muaythai Chairman Pol. Gen Kovid Bhakdibhumi said the WBC Muaythai had sanctioned other world title events for the United Kingdom, Germany and Denmark for 2006.
The WBC super lightweight world title will be staged in London on 17 September in an outstanding match-up between Britain's super star Kieran Keddle and Thailand's Danthai Singhmanutsak who has excelled in both Bangkok Rajadamnern and Lumpinee stadiums.
"In this most important year of the Thailand monarchy we have sanctioning the best Muaythai world championships in four countries. We want to finish the year off with the world applauding the great ring skills of Muaythai."
