Em Vutha was the 2008 national champion at 57 kg. Sen Rady, the fighter formerly know as Muteh Khmang, is the latest hot-shot prodigy to emerge from the jungles of Koh Kong.
On the undercard, Morn Kimlong was the winner in the third season of Kun Khmer Champion, CTN’s reality boxing series. He faces Khon Reach, who emerged during season one of the series and is now the 65-kilogram champion at CTN. Nuon Vichet — Nuon Sorya’s younger brother — and Suong Sovantha are both experienced youngsters on the ascendance. (It’s great to see CTN give some of the good young guys a shot on the international stage.)
