Yokkao held two events back to back this weekend in Bolton, UK.
The promotion has made it a regular thing to throw two events in one day when in the United Kingdom and it seems to be a success for them.
Yokkao 23 was headlined by a 70 kg title fight between champion Jordan Watson and Sorgraw Petchyindee. Watson was looking to rebound from a loss to Giorgio Petrosyan in December of 2016 and he did so in excellent fashion. He out struck Sorgraw to take home a decision win and remain the Yokkao 70 kg champion. Great win for Watson being able to add Sorgraw to his win column.
In the co-main event of Yokkao 23 Jake Purdy scored a (T)KO win over Kev Foster.
In the Yokkao 24 main event Liam Harrison had his 65 kg title on the line against Ryan Mekki. The Hitman retained his title with a (T)KO win. He has now won back to back fights since dropping a decision to Fabio Pinca.
Stephen Meleady was also in action at Yokkao 24. He won a decision against Thai fighter Wuttichai. The win is a huge follow up his recent ISKA title fight win this past February.
