Lion Fight Signs More Top Talent
On Monday, November 14 Lion Fight president Scott Kent released news stating that Lion Fight, the top American Muay Thai promotion has signed two promising athletes to multi-fight contracts. Gabriel Mazzetti and Antonina Shevchenko are two of the more promising up and coming Muay Thai fighters today and for Lion Fight to have signed them to multi fight contracts is big step in solidifying the future of the sport in America.
Reigning women’s lightweight champion Antonina “The Panther” Shevchenko along with middleweight title contender Gabriel “El Nino” Mazzetti recently signed fresh contracts with Lion Fight Promotions after outstanding performances in 2016.
Mazzetti, who fights out of Peru, blazed his way to victory in his organizational debut at Lion Fight 32 in Las Vegas. A budding superstar at just 19 years old, Mazzetti flashed powerful and precise striking as he notched a second-round knockout over Josh Shepard.
Shevchenko dominated against Paola Cappucci at Lion Fight 31 to keep her title which she will defend for a second time on Friday, Nov. 18 in Connecticut at Lion Fight 33 against Holland’s Ilona Wijmans.
