International fights, Bayon TV, June 15
Bayon TV presents an afternoon of international boxing today, Sunday June 15. The fight card includes what has become Cambodia’s de facto national boxing team — Eh Phoutang, Vorn Viva, Nuon Soriya and Meas Chanta — against four foreigners. Two local matches will be on the undercard, making a total of six fights.
- Aem Lihto v Chim Sarath (Lihto by decision)
- Kao Bunheng v Pich Sombath (Sombath by decision)
- Meas Chanta v Ahmed Sadi (Chanta by TKO, 3rd)
- Abbas Ahmadi v Nuon Soriya (Soriya by decision)
- Vorn Viva v Ken Tsubosaka (Viva by decision)
- Benjamin Cahe v Eh Phoutang (Cahe by decision)
Soriya has been working on his boxing skills with Paddy over the last few months. It will be interesting to see how this translates into the ring. In his last fight, March 1 against German Valdet Gaishi, Soriya scored two knockdowns, both with punches. Perhaps a TKO today?
The Bayon TV stadium is located 2 kilometers past the Monivong Bridge on Route 1. The show starts at
43 p.m. and includes music performances by local pop stars. Tickets are 10,000 reil. Seating is open. Gates open a 2. Get there early.
