After a 12-month injury lay-off, Nico Carrillo has fought three times already this year since his comeback at Evo Thai Boxing in March and will be looking to make a big statement in his fourth fight of 2019 when he faces Swedish star Kenny Hong.

Kenny reached the final of the Swedish Muaythai Championships in Gothenburg earlier this year and is coming of a loss in a WBC European title bout against Liam McGrandles at Roar Combat League 13 in April.

After a stoppage loss to Danish fighter Mikkel Lund, Nico bounced back to winning ways with a strong victory over Portugal’s Joao Francisco at The Blitz 6 at the end of last month and will now face his fourth international opponent of 2019 at LION FIGHT 59.

Our matchmaking department have been working closely with Lingnoi Promotions to make this fight happen and we are extremely pleased to have secured another top international bout for our UK-based fighters.
