Three bouts official for Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 4"

Lion Fight Promotions has confirmed with Muay Thai Authority that three bouts are now official for their November 19th event in Las Vegas. The three fights are Chaz Mulkey vs. Simon Chu, Coke Chunhawat vs. Rami Ibrahim and Chidi Njokuani vs. Ken Tran. Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 4" will take place at the promotions new home in Las Vegas, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Mulkey is coming off a close split decision victory over Remy Bonnel at "Battle in the Desert 3". With the win he claimed the WBC Muay Thai international middleweight title and will now look to defend it against the UK's heavy hitting Simon Chu. Coming off a fight for the WBC Muay Thai world middleweight title, Chu fell short in his fight against Ky Hollenbeck at "Battle in the Desert 3", dropping a decision. This fight should be a technical affair with both fighters having all the necessary tools to end things early.

Coke Chunhawat will look to defend his WBC Muay Thai U.S. national lightweight title when he takes on Philadelphia's Rami Ibrahim. Chunhawat recently lost a fight to Tetsuya Yamato, the exciting fight was stopped due to a cut. Ibrahim has won back to back fights against Mark DeLuca and Philippe Allaire Landerville and is now looking to claim stake to a WBC Muay Thai national title.

Chidi Njokuani will make his return to full rules Muay Thai after some time off to focus on MMA, although he recently fought in a K-1 fight in Las Vegas where he took home a unanimous decision victory over Edwin Aguilar. Ken Tran will be standing across the ring from Njokuani as he makes his second appearance for Lion Fight Promotions, his previous fight was an exciting decision loss to Chaz Mulkey at "Battle in the Desert 2". Always a showman, this fight should be as exciting as they come.
