Walker Headlines Lion Fight 46
Rising star Steve “Put Em to Sleep” Walker (5-0) faces Marcos Sursa in the Lion Fight 46 main event. Walker, from Boston, defends his Lion Fight North American Super Cruiserweight belt for the second time. Walker successfully defended his title with a stoppage win over veteran William “The Bull” Sriyapai at Lion Fight 45 last month.
Moraza-Pollard Returns October 6
Three weeks later, Lion Fight returns to Foxwoods for Lion Fight 47. The main event features local fan favorite Chip Moraza-Pollard, the undefeated Lion Fight cruiserweight champion. Moraza-Pollard (8-0) defends his title against France’s Remy Vectol (52-12-1).
Moraza-Pollard was tested in his last title defense by Canada’s Mark MacKinnon. Moraza-Pollard was dropped by a spinning back elbow late in the fight, but climbed off the deck and battled back in a tough majority decision win. He’s giving up a big edge in experience to the Frenchman.
Lion Fight Debuts in Ireland October 13
A week after Lion Fight 47 in Connecticut, the promotion makes its Ireland debut. Some of the match ups have been announced, with Irish fighters battling it out with Muay Thai fighters from Thailand and the USA.
The Lion Fight bantamweight title will be up for grabs, as Thailand’s Thepnimit Sitmonchai (121-50-6) ventures to hostile territory to face Ireland’s Ryan Sheehan (29-5-2).
In another Ireland-Thailand affair, tough Irish fighter Sean Clancy faces Thong Fairtex.
Wayne Cambridge of Cork will face American Eddie Abasolo.
Cards will be updated as more information is available.
