Phoenix 2 Rises Again! The decision to Ban mixed martial arts did not frustrate Phoenix management’s efforts to present world-class combat events on Lebanese grounds.
After being on hold, Phoenix Championship will return on the 29th of April for its second installment, “Phoenix 2”, featuring a phenomenal Muay Thai line-up that’s even bigger than its first according to officials.
As previously announced for the headlining act, highly regarded as one of the best ever Muay Thai fighters in the world today, “living legend” Saenchai will face French/Moroccan smashing machine Azize Hlali.
The promotion also revealed on their Facebook page that Phoenix 2 will also feature Steve Banks from USA, Dutch K1 veteran Wendell Roche, Antonina Shevchenko from Krygystan, and many other world, regional, and local champions.
While it is true that Phoenix 2 will carry on with a Muay Thai display only, MMA fans will not be disappointed as some of their favorite MMA fighters will be stepping into the Muay Thai ring that night. You heard that right!
Phoenix 2 takes place Saturday, April 29 at Nouhad Nawfal Stadium in Zouk, Lebanon. The first Phoenix event was aired on LBCI TV channel, but the broadcast partner for Phoenix 2 has not been officially confirmed.
