Yokkao Looking For the Best East Coast Muay Thai Fighters for Yokkao US Fight Team

  • Published in Muay Thai

Yokkao

Yokkao, one of the premier brands of Muay Thai gear and apparel, is once again turning its eyes to the East Coast of the United States in hopes of finding some new talent to add to the Yokkao US Fight Team. Yokkao has been sponsoring some of the best Muay Thai fighters in the world since their inception and look to continue that tradition, this time branching out and sponsoring fighters within the United States. The United States has become a focal point over the past few years for the increased focus on Muay Thai here, which has only been helped by international Kickboxing juggernaut, GLORY, holding more and more events here State-side.

Stefania Picelli, one of the masterminds behind the Yokkao brand, is currently in New York City scouting some talent from all of the top gyms out there, looking to expand the Yokkao Fight team into the United States. The New York area has always been considered one of the more talent rich areas of the United States for Muay Thai outside of Los Angeles, with fighters like Jay Mattias, Brett Hlvacek, Cyrus Washington, Ognjen Topic, Jarrell Miller, Rami Ibraham and more making their home in that area. There has never been a lack of talent in the New York area and hopefully we'll soon have some of the top fighters in the United States with a stronger presence around the world fighting in Muay Thai.

East Coast fighters that are looking to be a part of Yokkao's US Fight Team are encouraged to submit their record and information to Yokkao directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We urge you to pass this along to any top fighters that you know on the East Coast who are looking to take their game to the next level! You can check out Yokkao on Twitter (@YokkaoBoxing) and Facebook, or at http://www.Yokkao.com.

TaKe-On Productions and MSG Sports Team Up with Yokkao for "Muay Thai at the Mecca 2" in November

  • Published in Muay Thai

TaKe-On

Big news from TaKe-On Productions of New York today, as we just spoke with the head of TaKe-On, Eddie Cuello, and after their wildly successful "Muay Thai and the Mecca" event earlier this year, they are going to return to Madison Square Garden's Theater in November for Muay Thai at the Mecca 2! After seeing a high level of success with the first show, it made perfect sense for TaKe-On and MSG Sports to stage another event at the Theater at MSG. On top of that, they have a new partner for this event, which is our good friends at Yokkao.

Yokkao has quickly become one of the bigger name sponsors for muay thai fighters across the world, from Buakaw Banchamek (Sombat Banchamek/Buakaw Por Pramuk), Kem Sitsongpeenong, Dzahbar Askerov and many, many (many) more. On top of that, they have promoted their Yokkao Extreme cards, which have also seen a great deal of success and international acclaim. Them coming to America and teaming up with TaKe-On and MSG Sports just seems natural and like the best possible fit.

New York has long been one of America's hotbeds for stand up fighting, with the sport of Boxing having a long, storied history in New York, with Muay Thai and Kickboxing seeing a lot of recent success there, K-1 looking to make New York one of their new homes and even the UFC fighting tooth and nail to gain acceptance in New York.

TaKe-On is in action next on August 11th for a Full Thai rules show in Atlantic City, NJ at Balley's Hotel & Casino.

Yokkao Signs Exclusive Benelux Deal with All Combat Sports

  • Published in Muay Thai

Stefania

Word has come down the pipe today that Stefania Picelli of Yokkao has had a successful meeting of Mr. Peter Wetzer of All Combat Sports (http://www.allcombatsports.eu/) which has brought Yokkao products into one of the hearts of the Kickboxing and Muay Thai world that is the BeNeLux region of Europe (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg). This partnership goes well beyond the scope of just having an exclusive, authorized Yokkao dealer within the BeNeLux region, though. There is also talk of more coming from the partnership in the future, with some immediate implications.

What are those immediate implications? Yokkao and All Combat Sports will be looking into building up a team of sponsored fighters from the region. Holland is known to be one of the hotbeds for some of the best gyms and fighters in the world and could possibly be the home of a new Yokkao Fight Team, if things pan out as we've heard. That is exciting news for fighters in the region, who are encouraged to head to http://www.allcombatsports.eu and use the contact form (on the right side of the page) to pass along their information. We know for sure that Stefania and Peter are going to be looking for the best new talents to proudly wear the Yokkao name into battle.

Since it is such a dense region of Europe chock full of talent there are some immediate questions we have, such as; which fighters will Yokkao choose to sponsor first? There are legends like Peter Aerts, Remy Bonjasky, Andy Souwer or even the Bad Boy, Badr Hari based out of Holland, just like there are newer stars like Andy Ristie, Davit Kiria, Henri Van Opstal and more. There is also the question of whether or not we'll see a Yokkao Extreme event in the near future in the area? With a new region opening up like this for Yokkao there seem to be limitless possibilities for them.

For further information check out the new http://www.allcombatsports.eu as well as http://www.yokkao.com, don't forget to follow @YokkaoBoxing or check them out on Facebook, as well as follow Stefania as she treks around the world.

Yokkao

Yokkao is one of the better-known gear companies within the world of Muay Thai and a lot of the time we end up with questions like; where can I get Yokkao gear in the United States. The answer was, to say the least, kind of frustrating. Yokkao gear was a bit tough to come by here stateside, but it looks like that is all changing as Yokkao announces their official US shop!

That means if you live in the United States you can finally get your own Yokkao gear direct! That means gloves, pads, shorts, t-shirts and more. There is now a Muay Thai Combat San Francisco, which will serve as the base of operations out there, with Stefania Picelli opening up the office just weeks ago now; “The project that I am starting in the US will give each and every US State the opportunity to sell Yokkao Boxing. All of what I am doing with Muay Thai Combat and Yokkao is being copied by the world round, but a copy is ONLY a copy and I am proud to be the original one and only with fresh ideas to keep our fans happy, impressed and wanting more .. so USA, Get Ready!”

Yokkao Determined to Push Muay Thai Forward Starting with Muay Thai Combat Mania Ile de la Reunion

  • Published in Muay Thai
Yokkao
Stefania Picelli with Mohamed Diaby

We are involved in a very interesting time right now if you are a fan of Kickboxing and Muay Thai. There has been tremendous change within the industry over the past few years, with everything being reshuffled, new promotions rising up, old ones falling and lots of established fighters are aging, leaving room for a new generation of fighters to rise into prominence. In the past few years, Yokkao has not only been making headway in regards to bringing muay thai gear to the world, but they've also done a lot to raise awareness for some of the best talents from Thailand and around the world.

Part of that strategy has involved sponsoring fighters, assembling an all-star fight team and promoting their own Yokkao events as well. Yokkao has a big event coming up in March in England and Stefania Picelli has reached out to us this morning with a statement on Yokkao's mission to bring the best fighters -- from anywhere -- to the attention of the world.

The concept of Yokkao events is to find the best talents and to give them a chance to fight vs Top fighters, not only because they are "recommended" for their affiliations. 
Our staff works to find what no one else is looking for: fighters who deserve to fight in big events not only because their gym is famous. Of course there are gyms that are institutions who provide fighters, but there are many gyms with good trainers and fighters who are still unknown in the world.
What my staff and I do is to find these gyms, trainers and fighters.
Why? Because Yokkao is aimed by the real spirit of Muay Thai and give fighters from every country in the world a chance to transform his dream into reality by being part of the most famous Muay Thai team in the world; the Yokkao Fight Team.
What we evaluate is the hard training, the sacrifice and the determination of each fighter who want to transform his life.
This is Yokkao: the realization of the Dream.

To go along with this, Yokkao is announcing today that Saenchai will square off against Aziz Hlali on November 8th at Muay Thai Combat Mania Ile de la Réunion, or what we'll call #Yokkao5. On top of that, Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee will square off against Mohamed Diaby and Andrea Masini vs Crice Boussoukou, making it yet another incredible event from Yokkao and Stefania Picelli.
