LOS ANGELES – Undefeated Muay Thai fighter Simon Marcus will take Sweden’s Sadibou Sy, when MUAY THAI IN AMERICA (MTIA) in honor of the King of Thailand’s birthday heads to Raleigh Studios in Play Vista, CA on Saturday, Dec. 1. The event will air live on DIRECT TV® and INDEMAND® at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
In honor of the King of Thailand’s Birthday, MTIA will bring together 18 of the best Muay Thai fighters, “Nak Muay”, from the U.S. and around the world to participate in eight fierce bouts, live before an international audience. This will be an unprecedented red carpet gala affair in celebration of the King’s birthday.
MTIA is rapidly positioning itself as a leader in the world of combative stand-up sports. Muay Thai is the most devastating, yet graceful, culturally balanced art form on the planet. Practiced, like a religion throughout the world, Muay Thai is in need of professional execution. MTIA has elevated the presentation of professional Muay Thai to the level of HBO Boxing and that of our closest competitor, ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (UFC). MTIA has set the bar and is expected to become the industry leader in professional martial art competition.
