WLC: BATTLEBONES Tuhtaboyev becomes new middleweight champion

WLC: BATTLEBONES played out in Yangon, Myanmar yesterday with a new middleweight champion crowned. In the main event, it was a back-and-forth affair with both athletes going for the one-strike knockout. Defending champion Too Too was effective with his leg kicks but it was the challenger Naimjon Tuhtaboyev’s more precise and accurate strikes that proved to be the difference. Tuhtaboyev earned the victory via split decision, becoming the new middleweight World Lethwei Champion.

In the co-main event, So Mi Ong Luktupfah overwhelmed Cambodia’s Sok Rith with a barrage of both flashy yet effective strikes. He began to dominate early in the second round and never relented. Sok Rith tried fighting back after multiple knockdowns but eventually became too much for him to continue.

Europe’s Souris Manfredi (France) scored her second win inside the WLC ring with a second round KO over Vietnam’s Tran Thi Lua while Italy’s Samuel Toscano secured a unanimous decision win over Saw Kaung Htet.
