On September 20, Alexandre returns to the Lion Fight ring for this full rules Muay Thai mega-fight against Nampon.
“I love Muay Thai and am honored to headline Lion Fight 11 against Nampon, one of the toughest guys in the sport,” said Alexandre. “This fight will not go to a decision. I’m training hard with my team, the Blackzilians, and expect to knock everyone out with my performance September 20.”
The 23-year old native of Thailand, Nampon, is a two-time WMC Champion (147 lbs. and 135 lbs.) and Rajadamnern Stadium Champion.
