We love the busy Thai boxing scene, despite numerous complaints, though today we were informed that Thai fans will get the chance to watch some international action in coming weeks with the news that Thai Channel 8 will be televising an upcoming Light Heavyweight double header, which is set to be screened on HBO in the US.
The card is headlined by Light Heavyweight kingpin Sergey Kovalev (27-0-1, 24) defending his WBA "super", IBF and WBO titles against Nadjib Mohammedi (37-3, 23) though the bout will also feature former Kovalev victim Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17) taking on unbeaten hopeful Yunieski Gonzalez (16-0, 12).
Ahead of the fights on July 25th (26th in Thailand) channel 8 have released a hype video, which can be seen below.
