"Battle For The Belts" Gets Artem Levin vs. Simon Marcus, 7 World Title Fights

  • Written by Rian Scalia

There's a huge card in Muang Thong Thani, Thailand on June 9 that we posted about not too long ago. Originally we learned that Saenchai and Kem Sitsongpeenong would be on the card and that there would be seven WBC Muay Thai world title fights in total. We've learned more about the event now, including a large portion of the fights.

Simon Marcus will face Artem Levin for Levin's world title belt at 175lbs/79.379kg. Marcus is coming off his huge win over Joe Schilling, the interim title holder of Levin's belt. Although to some the bout was marred with controversy, the win moves Marcus into a position to challenge Levin for the title. Levin told us in an interview that he'd be defending his title against Joe Schilling on March 31, but we don't know if that fight is set yet.

One of the top Thais at 130, Jomthong Chuwattana will be on the card. He's not the only Thai on the card, as Saenchai, the current WBC Diamond Champion at 140 is set to fight. Kem Sitsongpeenong will take on the Spanish figher Alex Asumu for the super welterweight title of the WBC. One fight features two Thais facing off as Big Ben Chor Praram fights Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong.

Steve McKinnon of Australia will fight Ramazan Ramazanov, who is based out of Thailand. The WBC world champion at heavyweight, Cristian Bosch of Argentina will fight Fabiano Aoki, also known as Fabiano Cyclone. [source]
