Joe Johnson - ENFUSION Abu Dhabi

4 UK Fighters At ENFUSION This Weekend

One of Europe’s longest running Kickboxing promotions, ENFUSION Kickboxing, is set to return this coming Friday, November 12.

The 104th edition of ENFUSION will take place this coming Friday at the Etihad Arena on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

In recent years, ENFUSION, originally an all-Kickboxing promotion, have incorporated other combat sports rules under their banner.

Not only have they included Muay Thai and MMA bouts, but they have also ventured into ‘Xtreme Rules’ in ENFUSION Cage Events; which sees a mixture of Muay Thai rules in MMA gloves, including standing submissions.

On Friday, three of the four UK fighters on the card will fight under full Muay Thai rules.

Mehdi El Jamari vs Ellis Barboza

The first will see current Thai Fighter UK Bantamweight #1, Ellis Barboza, take on Moroccan, Mehdi El Jamari, in a Featherweight Muay Thai bout.

Brad Stanton vs Keng Superpro Samui

The former Kiatphontip UK fighter, Brad Stanton, is set to make his first appearance in more than three years when he takes on Keng Superpro Samui in a Muay Thai bout this Friday.

Despite a brief reappearance under Kickboxing rules at GLORY 54 Birmingham in June 2018, Stanton hasn’t competed under Muay Thai rules since 2016.

Joe Johnson vs David Dvoracek

Despite a loss in his last bout at ENFUSION in September, Joe Johnson‘s ‘Fight of the Night’ performance was enough to convince the matchmakers to offer the Millennium Martial Arts fighter another huge fight.

He is set to face Czech fighter David Dvoracek in an ENFUSION rules Welterweight Kickboxing bout.

Lucy Payne vs Kelly Danioko

Further up on the ENFUSION Talents #87 kick is former Thai Fighter UK #1, Lucy Payne. She is set to face Belgian Kelly Danioko in a Lightweight Muay Thai bout.

*Note: Earlier today, Lucy Payne published on her social media explaining the bout has been cancelled due to her opponent testing positive for COVID.*
