It’s Showtime has announced the 3rd fight for their big 2010 Amsterdam Arena show: Buakaw Por. Pramuk v. Chahid Oulad El Hadj.
With still months to go before the fight, and both men in very high profile fights in the meantime (Buakaw in the MAX Finals, Chahid fighting Murat Direkci for the It’s Showtime 70 kg title), it’s too early to know exactly where each man will stand when this fight happens. But regardless of their rankings, this is an exciting fight, with two excellent, top 20 70 kg fighters squaring off. For Chahid it’s a tough fight as Buakaw is beatable, but Chahid may not be the kind of quick-starting, round 1 KO kind of fighter that has the best shot against him.
The current line-up:
May 29, 2010
Tyrone Spong v. Melvin Manhoef
Artur Kyshenko v. Murat Direkci
Buakaw Por. Pramuk v. Chahid Oulad El Hadj
Not bad for a show over 6 months away!
