Middleweight World Lethwei Champion TOO TOO Dominates Vasyl Sorokin to Retain Title

Yangon, Myanmar- World Lethwei Championship (WLC), the world’s largest bareknuckle fighting organisation, preceded over a historic night of world-class lethwei action at WLC: BARE-KNUCKLE KING last Saturday, with Middleweight World Lethwei Champion Too Too retaining his title in a hard-fought bout against Ukrainian challenger Vasyl Sorokin.

In the main event of the evening, a game challenger emerged in Vasyl Sorokin. Using his length and reach advantage, he kept the advancing Too Too at bay, but Too Too’s aggressiveness and lethal hooks to the body proved to be the difference on the judges’ scorecards as he emerged as the winner in his first title defence.

Saw Ba Oo impressed with dazzling footwork, as he put on a striking clinic against perennial contender Tha Pyay Nyo. He significantly impacted Tha Pyay Nyo’s vision and won a convincing unanimous decision.

In the first female bout in world lethwei history, Cambodia’s Nou Srey Pov demonstrated the effectiveness in counter striking and battered Shwe Sin Min for three rounds.
