On March 15th, Artem Levin and Simon Marcus will square off in the main event of Lion Fight 9. The two best light heavyweight Muay Thai fighters in the world will finally meet live on AXS TV, in a Champion vs. Champion dream matchup. Only one will walk away with the newly minted LION FIGHT light heavyweight championship belt.
Standing 6’3” and fighting out of Prokopyevsk, Russia (65-3), Levin is a multiple world light heavyweight Muay Thai champion with 31 KOs on record. He’s been fighting on the pro circuit since 2003, acquiring virtually every European title in the sport across three weight classes including the WBC Muay Thai World Light Heavyweight title, the ITS SHOWTIME MAX World Champion, the WMC Intercontinental Championship (76 kg.) and also becoming the qualifying tournament champion on the Russian version of The Contender. Now, in this long-awaited superfight at LION FIGHT 9, Levin is ready to not only add the Lion Fight title to his collection, but also destroy the legend of the Muay Thai fighter known as Simon Marcus.
“I am thrilled that LION FIGHT is the promotion that was able to put together this long-awaited superfight between Simon Marcus and Artem Levin,” said Lion Fight President and CEO Scott Kent. “This is a world class fight, Muay Thai at its best and Simon vs. Levin is taking place right here in Las Vegas, the fight capitol of the world, for the LION FIGHT light heavyweight championship belt.
