Preview, stats and and live stream details ahead of Josh Hill vs Lorenzo Di Vara at The Arena UF on Saturday, March 25.
2022 Fight Record Fighter of the Year, Josh Hill, is back in action again this weekend. The Majestic Gym fighter went 6-0 in 2022, winning the ISKA MuayThai World title in the process.
Now, in true champion style, he is set to defend his newly acclaimed World title — feat many champions before and after him should take heed of.
“I beat the former World champion to win the title. Now I get to defend it away from home. It’s a dream come true.”Josh Hill
He will take on challenger, Lorenzo Di Vara, in his home country of Italy.
Lorenzo is one of Italy’s top fighters at 70kg and has faced many of the World’s best in his weight category. Just over a year ago, he earned a draw against Muay Thai legend, Sudsakorn Sor.Klinmee.
After numerous wins throughout 2022, he was scheduled to end the year with two huge fights. Firstly, he was matched against one of the greatest foreign Muay Thai fighters of all time, Youssef Boughanem. Then, in December, he was scheduled to face the UK’s rising Muay Thai prodigy, Joe Ryan.
Lorenzo was seen preparing for the upcoming fights with the UK’s Nico Carrillo. However, later in his training camp he suffered injury and both bouts fell through.
He is now solely focused on the task ahead and believes a World title victory could book his ticket to the ONE Championship roster.
“I deserve this opportunity and I want to prove it. The final say will be in the ring on Saturday night.”Lorenzo Di Vara
