Simon Marcus is rumored to have pulled out of his scheduled June 9th bout with Artem Levin for the WBC Muay Thai Light Heavyweight World Title. Marcus who recently defeated Joe Schilling in a title elimination bout at Lion Fight Muay Thai VI was set to face Levin at Battle for the Belts in Bangkok Thailand. The reason for Marcus pulling out currently remains unclear.
Tabbed to replace Marcus against Levin is American Joe Schilling. Apparently Schilling has verbally agreed to the bout and all that is needed now is a signed contract to make the fight official. Schilling has expressed interest in fighting Levin on several occasions and has now received his shot. Fans should be in for a real treat as both Levin and Schilling are known for their finishing prowess.
