French promotions La Nuit Des Challenges and Explosion Fight Night will come together on June 4th in Lyon, France to put on a stacked card featuring many big names in the kickboxing world. The theme of the card is Team Nasser K against the world. For those who aren't familiar with Team Nasser K, it's one of best kickboxing teams in all of Europe. Housing names suchs as It's Showtime 61MAX World Champion Karim Bennoui and his brother Houcine, Fabio Pinca, Yohan Lidon, Abdallah Mabel and many more. Top that off with 8 Full Muay Thai Rules Super Fight bouts and you've got a stacked card.

Fabio Pinca, winner of last year's Isuzu Thai Fight Tournament takes on WMC World Muaythai -135lb Champion, Saenchai Sor Sinbi (formerly known as Saenchai Sor Kingstar) in a rematch of their fight from 2007. Saenchai was able to take a unanimous decision win over Pinca the first time they fought. Now Pinca will try to even up the scores to 1-1 a piece. French fighter Yohan Lidon takes on Kongjak Sor Tuantong in a rematch of their fight from last August, where Lidon had to stop fighting after a middle kick to the arm forced him unable to continue. Lidon will be making a quick turn-around after his It's Showtime 73MAX World Title fight against Marat Grigorian on May 14 in Lyon.
