The WBC MUAYTHAI will stage the Lightweight Interim World Championship in Paris, France, on 29 November 2007.

Promoter Sammy Khebchi of Sport Even 1 said there was great excitement for the world's prestigious WBC brand coming to France for the first time on a first class professional Muaythai event to be staged in Paris stade Courbetin.

The two contenders (135 pounds max) for the WBC interim title are the French superstar Kamel Jamel and the top ranked Lumpini Stadium professional fighter Kongpipob Petchyindee.
Jemel has been the French Muaythai champion 11 times and European champion five times. He has beaten top Thai fighters Rambo and Pornsak but lost to Somlak Kamsing.

On the same card the WBC Super Welterweight Champion Yodsaengklai Fairtex will fight a non-title contest against the French superstar Farid. The last time these two fighters were matched they fought to a draw.
