World Champion Lou Neglia and Ray Longo present World Championship Kickboxing with “Combat at the Capitale 27” on June 1 live at the famous Capitale in New York City, New York. The 6-bout Muay Thai card is anchored by several title fights that are sure to make new stars in the sport and cement legacies.
In the main event, for the Muay Thai 140 lb World Championship, Champion Julio Arce of Team Tiger Schulmann defends against #1 Contender Brandon Mickens. Arce will have the hometown fans on his side and anyone who has ever been to an event that has featured a Tiger Schulmann fighters knows that there is not a more boisterous and enthusiastic crowd than a Tiger Schulmann crowd. Look for the Virginian Mickens to start fast and try to add up points early on to try and take the crowd out of the match. For Arce, this is his first title defense after winning the title earlier this year and a great opportunity to gain some valuable experience and build his legacy.
In the co-main event, the Muay Thai 145 lb World Championship is up for grabs as Nico Tsigaras from Lions Fight Martial Arts battles Felipe Carlos from East West MMA for the vacant belt. Tsigaras is a fan favorite for his slick punching and ability to hit and not be hit. He will look to counter Carlos and make him pay for his mistakes. Carlos is a grinder and willing to take some punishment to give more back. If Carlos can land punches even if he is countered by Tsigaras the fight could swing in his favor. Expect this bout to be a grueling fight that could last all five rounds to decide the champion.
If you love nonstop, full-throttle striking, then “Combat at the Capitale 27” is must-see TV. This event goes hand in hand with Neglia’s other combat sports venture, Ring of Combat, and give combat fans in the tri-state area another avenue to watch some of the best East Coast martial artists compete. Watch as the brave warriors display the science of the eight limbs and use punches, kicks, knees and elbows and do it the Big Apple on June 1. Order this event exclusively at GFL.tv.
