By Greg Boasberg
Lion Fight Promotions has come to an agreement with AXS TV for live Muay Thai fight programming in 2013. AXS TV will broadcast Lion Fight Promotions next event, “Lion Fight Muay Thai 8,” on Friday, Jan. 25.
“Andrew Simon is a big fan of Muay Thai, and has been to three of our last four fights. He loves our events at the Hard Rock and, with this new deal, with AXS TV we are bringing full rules Muay Thai, the art of eight limbs, to the American Audience. Our business plan has been predicated on bringing in world class fighters from around the globe to fight in Las Vegas, and bring the sport to a national level here in the United States. This will be the first time Muay Thai will be on national television, and we feel the public will fall in love with it like the rest of us have,” says Scott Kent, CEO of Lion Fight Promotions.
With this new TV deal intact, Lion Fight Promotions is looking to bring in some of the top Thai Fighters in Thailand to compete along with local and European talent. They will be issuing a press release on Monday in regards to some of the fighters participating in future Lion Fight Muay Thai events.
