The highly anticipated re-match between Joe Schilling and Simon Marcus is now expected to take place at Lion Fight Promotions next event on May 12th. Sources close to the promotion have informed Muay Thai Authority that both fighters have already agreed to the fight.
For those not familiar with the situation, Schilling and Marcus fought at Lion Fight Promotions “Battle in the Desert 5”. Marcus won by first round (T)KO, but there was much debate after Schilling and Marcus fell to the canvas after an attempted throw by Marcus, the fall causing Schilling to get dazed. After they were back on their feet a vicious left hook from Marcus knocked Schilling down and then a few moments later an elbow from Marcus knocked him down again at which point the referee stopped the fight.
An official announcement from Lion Fight Promotions is expected in the upcoming days.
