Kevin Ross vs. Choke Eminent Air and Simon Marcus vs. Kaoklai Kaennorsing set to take place on March 16th in Thailand

As reported by Total Muay Thai, Suk Wan Muaythai Naikhanomtom, better known in the United States as National Muay Thai Day, will feature an event on March 16th at Central World in Bangkok. Fighting on the event are American Kevin Ross, Canadian Simon Marcus, Muay Thai legend Kaoklai Kaennorsing and Choke Eminent Air.

Ross will be returning to action against Choke Eminent Air. This will be the first fight for him since his October loss to Sakkedao Petchpayathai in Los Angeles. Ross had a mixed 2011 campaign as he fought two of the best fighters in the world, but went 1-3 on the year. He held his own against Saenchai losing a decision, but was stopped by Sakkedao after an elbow opened up a nasty cut on his head. Ross undoubtedly be looking to end the two fight skid he is currently on as he tried to continue to carve his name out in North American Muay Thai and the world.

Choke Eminent Air is currently ranked at Lumpinee and Ratchadamnern Stadiums. His most notable win is against Anuwat Kawesamrit. It will be interesting to see how Choke adjusts to the aggressive style and boxing skills that Ross will bring to the ring.

After Simon Marcus tangles with Joe Schilling his next opponent is expected to be Kaoklai Kaennorsing. Simon Marcus and Kaoklai will meet in the night’s main event for the vacant WPMF Light Heavyweight Title. Marcus is a strong fighter, while Kaoklai is a legend in the sport. It will be interesting to see how Kaoklai looks after suffering a one sided loss to Joe Schilling in October. As for Marcus his must first get past Schilling before he can focus on Kaoklai.
