Lion Fight 27 continues to add some great fights. The most recent fight to be added to the card features young gun Gaston Bolanos (@BolanosGaston) vs. Kornpet Phetrachapat
Bolanos is fresh off his WMC Intercontinental Championship win in Peru. The young fighter once again ended things with a spinning elbow, a move that is quickly becoming his trademark finish. On paper this is easily the hardest fight of his career, Bolanos is currently 7-0 as a pro. This far into his pro career he has passed every test with flying colors and it will be interesting to see how he adjusts in the ring to an opponent who has a significant amount of experience.
Kornpet will be looking to rebound from his split decision loss to Wei Rui from this past November’s WCK Muay Thai event. Kornpet has well over 150 fights compared to Bolanos’s seven. He should also have a size advantage as Bolanos will be moving up a weight class to fight Kornpet.
The bout joins the already confirmed main event between Fabio Pinca and Charlie Peters as well as the confirmed bouts of Phanuwat “Coke” Chunhawat vs. Anvar Boynazarov and Chris Culley vs. Brian Del Rosario.
Lion Fight 27 takes place on January 29 at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA.
