Lion Fight 21 features title bout and Tiffany Van Soest

Muay Thai promotion Lion Fight unveiled two fights for their March 27 event.

In the main event, Lion Fight super welterweight champion Kevin Ross faces Tetsuya Yamamoto. The fight poster listed this as a super lightweight title fight.

Ross and Yamamoto faced off at Lion Fight 11 in what was a great fight. Yamaoto came up the winner on a controversial split decision. He recently defended his WBC Muay Thai super lightweight title against Masaaki Noiri. Since the loss, Ross has won his last three fights, including a victory over Michael Thompson to capture the welterweight title. I loved their first fight and this rematch should be nothing less than spectacular.

In the co-feature, Tiffany Van Soest returns to the Lion Fight ring to take on Chajmaa Bellekhal. Van Soest has gone 2-2 in her last four fights, including a decision loss to Denise Kielholtz. Bellekhal is coming off a split-decision win over Jeri Sitzes. This should be a good slug fest that could determine a contender for world champion Caley Reece.
