Jo Nattawut was originally set to defend his Lion Fight super welterweight title against Yodpayak Sitsongpeenong, but an injury to Yodpayak has forced him out. Armin Pumpanmuang has stepped in to challenge Nattawut for this title.
Nattawut most recently defended his Lion Fight welterweight title with a decision win over Cedric Manhoef at Lion Fight 28. Armin will enter the fight with his most recent win being a decision over Armen Petrosyan this past February at Ring War 3 in Italy. The win against Petrosyan snapped a three fight losing streak for Armin.
Also on the card will be Ognjen Topic vs. Deschkada Sitsongpeenong. The bout will be Topic’s first since losing his Lion Fight lightweight title to Sergio Wielzen at Lion Fight 28.
Some of the other fights confirmed for Lion Fight 28 are Bryce Lawrence vs. Asa Ten Pow, Julio Pena vs. Travis Clay, and John Nofer vs. Jared Tipton.
