Lion Fight Promotions returns this Saturday night October 6 with Lion Fight 47 at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The full rules Muay Thai event features both professional and amateur fights featuring up and coming talent.
The main event is the classic battle between a young talent and an experienced veteran. Unbeaten Lion Fight cruiserweight champion Chip “The Surgeon” Moraza-Pollard defends his title for the fourth time against Remy Vectol of France. Moraza-Pollard, 8-0 as a pro, will be facing an opponent with over 50 professional wins. Vectol, nicknamed “Robocop”, “has won numerous world and European titles over the course of his 65-fight career”, according to the press release. Moraza-Pollard had a scare in his last bout. The champion was dropped by a spinning back elbow against Canada’s Mark Mackinnon, but dug down and won the decision.
Here is the fight card (subject to change). Lion Fight 47 will be broadcast exclusively on the Flo Combat platform (Pro subscription required).
