Savvas Michael returned to ONE Championship yesterday when he faced Thai Phenom Lerdsila Phuket Top Team at the Impact Arena in his adopted hometown of Bangkok.
The Petchyindee Academy star took his first loss in a very long time after a freak accident during the second round. Unfortunately, Cypriot landed badly on his left arm and damaged his elbow on impact.
As Savvas remained grounded showing visible pain, the referee Elias Dolaptsis instantly stopped the action.
The 20-year-old took to social media earlier today to reflect on the fight;
This afternoon, WBC Muaythai published a post on their social media pages wishing Savvas a speedy recovery, and confirmed the Cypriot was infact scheduled to fight for the vacant WBC Muaythai Lightweight title at Lumpinee Stadium on 10th September.
Rest assured, Savvas’ dreams will live on as the WBC added that his opportunity at WBC gold will come again.
