WBC Muaythai middleweight world champion Steve Wakeling defends his title against Rajadamern stadium superstar Lamsongkram Chuwattana in the "fight of the century" at London's famous York Stadium on 25 February.
The event which has already sold out has London's fight fans buzzing. The world unification championship will be broadcast by Sky B TV throughout Europe.
At a press conference in Bangkok (19 January) champion Wakeling and interim champion Longsamkram both predicted they would win by points.
Both fighters are former S1 tournament champions with similar fighting styles - strong in grappling and possessing masterful elbow weapons.
Wakeling is training in the muaythai training camp at the Fairtex Sports Club in Pattaya. He said the London home crowd would assist his first title defense after defeating Australia's legendry fighter John Wayne Parr at Wemberley stadium last March.
Lamsongkram is the Rajadamnern stadium champion who won the interim title against Allan Ofeyo in Kyrgyzstan.
Meanwhile Sirimonkol, former muaythai star and two times WBC boxing champion, said he hopes to be the first fighter to win WBC boxing, WBC Muaythai and K1 boxing titles. Sirimongkol fights his first K1 contest in Japan next month.
WBC Muaythai Cruiserweight champion Nathan "Carnage" Corbett will defend his title in Australia's Gold Coast on 24 April.
And the new heavyweight sensation Dutchman Ricardo van de Boss will fight "the Chinese Tiger" Zhang to unify the WBC International Heavyweight division in China in April.
