British Muay Thai fighter, Liam Griffin, faces one of the toughest test of his fight career to date this weekend.
He is set to take on Daraeak RevolutionMuayThaiGym in the main event at Muay Hardcore on Saturday.
The pair will clash in a bout set at 64kg, with both fighters hitting the scales slightly under weight at 63.8kg on Friday.
For Griffin, this will be a huge step up in competition against Daraeak, who has well over 100 fights in his career.
The UK fighter, though much less experienced than his opponent, has just a single loss in his career.
During 2019 and early 2020, Liam Griffin dominated his domestic competition, earning numerous stoppage victories on his win streak.
Having taken the #10 spot in the Thai Fighter UK Super-Lightweight rankings, he looked likely to begin climbing the domestic rankings before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

The Revolution Muay Thai fighter is a former two-time, two-weight MX Muay Xtreme champion.
In the latter part of 2020, he became popular for his highlight reel knockouts, earning three straight KO victories at Muay Hardcore before a split decision loss to Sherzod Kabutov in November.
