Lion Fight Muay Thai kicks off new year with Lion Fight 34 set for February 3rd at Tropicana Resort Casino on the iconic Las Vegas Strip
“We strongly believe that 2017 will be the best year ever for Lion Fight and we are absolutely starting the year in terrific fashion. Lion Fight 34 is the type of event that our long-standing fans and those fans new to our world-class product will be anticipating in a big way.” said Lion Fight CEO, Scott Kent
The main event of Lion Fight 34 will mark the first defense for newly crowned super middleweight champion Regian “The Immortal” Eersel as he will take on 2014 Best of Siam champion Samy Sana.
Eersel (44-4) debuted in style at Lion Fight 29 when he registered a colossal head-kick knockout of Jo Nattawut in the fourth round of a non-title bout. After a follow-up victory in China, Eersel moved into the super middleweight title bout at Lion Fight 33 and promptly destroyed England’s Jake Purdy.
The Algerian-born Sana (86-3) has earned two wins and a draw in his last three outings, notably earning the Best of Siam crown and WBC super middleweight title with a knockout victory in Bangkok.
Lion Fight 34 will also feature a title fight in the co-main event as reigning women’s super bantamweight champion Iman “Pretty Killer” Barlow (84-5-3) puts her belt on the line against Meryum “Mergen” Uslu (39-9-1).
