Yokkao is set to return to Macron Stadium in Bolton, England. Yokkao 17 and Yokkao 18 will follow their recent trend of two shows in one night. The events are set for March 19, 2016 and they have announced the main event for Yokkao 18 to be a re-match between current Yokkao 70kg Champion Sanny Dahlbeck and Jordan Watson.
The pair previously fought at Yokkao 12. Watson was the newly crowned Yokkao 70kg champion at the time and was looking to make his first title defense. The fight was nothing but excitement as neither fighter wanted to give up any ground. Going into the fourth round it was a close fight and then Dahlbeck scored a huge knockdown with a barrage of punches, knees, and elbows. Watson recovered, but was again sent down to the canvas. Watson once again beat the referee’s count, but Dahlbeck hell bent on ending this fight. He began to unleash a fury of strikes that had Watson hurt and the referee stepped in and stopped the bout.
If the re-match is anything like the first fight between these two then fans are in for a treat.
