MTGP will treat fans in attendance and those around the world watching on FloCombat to six phenomenal, high-action main card Muay Thai bouts.

The night’s main event is a spectacular one, as Bad Company’s Liam Harrison battles Double K’s Charlie Peters in a 66.7-kg affair.

An accomplished kickboxer with over 100 fights under his belt, Harrison has thrilled fight fans for almost two decades. Despite his success and longevity in the sport, “The Hitman” has a tough test in front of him come Saturday.

A three-time world champion inside of the ring, and a personal trainer and hairdresser outside of it, Brexley’s Peters feels ready for the fight of his life. The 28-year-old fighter has won over 35 Muay Thai bouts in his career and looks to add Harrison’s name to his resume in London.

If the main event wasn’t enticing enough for you to tune in, the night’s co-main event should do the trick.

In a 67-kg bout, Eric Rocha and Michael Pham collide in what should turn out to be a thrilling bout.

Rocha took the bout on somewhat short notice, stepping in for Josh Aragon. Personal issues forced Aragon to pull out of the bout last week, but the Canadian Rocha didn’t hesitate at filling the void.

Lion Fight fans familiarized themselves with Rocha in his promotional debut at Lion Fight 37 back in July of 2017.

Adding another knockout to his highlight reel, Rocha defeated Alexander Olave by first-round TKO in prolific fashion.

The M.A.F.A. product floored Olave three times in the opening round, causing referee Dan Miragliotta to waive off the bout just 40 seconds in.

His opponent, the aforementioned Pham, is a Lion Fight veteran fighting out of Team Tieu. He’ll look to continue his success as he returns to the MTGP ring on home turf.

The action-packed lineup doesn’t stop there. Before the headliner and co-headliners make the walk to the ring, four additional main card bouts serve as a brilliant appetizer.

In a three-round 53.5kg bout, Joe Le Maire (Unit 1 Gym) fights Evan Jays (Double K). Walid Djenane (Obyfight) and Shane O’Neill (MMA Clinic) collide in a featured 67kg matchup.

That’s not all.

Muay Thai Grand Prix Presents: Lion Fight 43 will kick off with two barnburners.

First, Carlos Marin (Spain) and Lewis Childs (Double K) will get the card started in a three-round 72kg bout. In an absolutely thrilling fight on paper, Morgan Manfred (Family Muay Thai) and Rush Ashdown (Lumpini Crawley) square off at 57kg as the card’s second bout.
