Good luck to brother Adem 'Phoenix' Yilmaz for his upcoming bout against current Lethwei (Burmese Boxing) World Champion, Dave Leduc in Tokyo on April 18th.
For those that don't know, the brutal sport of Lethwei is similar to Muay Thai, but with only hand wraps worn instead of gloves and with headbutting allowed. Lionheart Adem recently took on the previous and long-reigning champ, Tun Tun Min, in his first ever Lethwei bout with no previous experience in the sport, putting on a gutsy show and going out on his shield. Adem's preparation for this fight has been solid and he's in peak condition and more than ready to go to war.
Best wishes Adem. One love from the Mantis Boxing Society, Phoenix Gym and all of your family and friends back home. Go hard kid!
