Kevin Ross, Matt Embree, Romie Adanza and more expected to be in action at Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 6"

As previously reported on Muay Thai Authority, Joe Schilling and Simon Marcus are expected to re-match in the night’s main event at Lion Fight Promotions “Battle in the Desert 6” on May 12th in Las Vegas. The event which will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is also expected to feature Kevin Ross vs. Matt Embree, Romie Adanza vs. Tomonori Sato, Artem Sharoshkin vs. Scotty Leffler and although he has no opponent yet, Malaipet is expected to fight at the event as well.

Ross has not competed since losing to Lumpinee Stadium champion Sakkedao Petchpayathai in October of 2010. He was scheduled to fight Choke Eminent Air in Thailand this month, but a knee injury forced him out of the fight. Embree recently defeated Coke Chunhawat at Lion Fight Promotions “Battle in the Desert 5” and was also the recent winner of the Journey Fight Series 140lb tournament. Fans have been wanting to see this match-up for quite some time and it should prove to be an exciting fight.

Romie Adanza and Tomonori Sato will meet in a re-match. Their last fight took place in Japan this past February, a bout which Adanza won by doctor stoppage after he opened up a cut on Sato. The fight will be for the WBC Muay Thai international flyweight title.

Artem Sharoshkin will be fighting for the first time in 2012 when he takes on Scotty Leffler. Sharoshkin last fought in June of 2011, dropping a decision to Jose Palacios. Leffler returned to action at Lion Fight Promotions “Battle in the Desert 5” after recovering from a broken jaw. He defeated Sheldon Gaines in one of the night’s most exciting fights.

None of these bouts have been officially announced by Lion Fight Promotions and should be considered unofficial until then. Like our official facebook page or follow us on twitter @MuayThaiAuth to keep up with all the news.
