Three titles up for grabs at AFC 11
AFC 11: ‘Challenge For New Champions’ is set for Sindorim Techno Mart in Seoul on April 8th and there will be three titles up for grabs.
Bae Myung-Ho (17-5-1) will defend his welterweight strap against Brazilian Jonas Boeno (38-11) in the main event. Originally, these two were scheduled to face each other at AFC 10 but the fight was canceled due to an injury sustained by the champion.
In the co-main event, former URCC title-holder Lee Do-Gyeom (6-2) will challenge featherweight champion Moon Gi-Bum (9-4). This will be the most anticipated title fight of the event since these two combatants bring different skill sets to the cage and both represent the city of Busan.
The third title bout will be contested in the openweight division. Newly-minted champion Giacomo Lemos (5-0) will make his first title defense against Lim Jun-Soo (12-11).
Meanwhile Road FC veteran Kim Kyung-Pyo (7-2) will make his promotional debut against Brazilian Vitor Toffanelli (15-9) in a lightweight contest. And Lee Jin-Se (3-2) will move up to featherweight to face former TFC title-challenger Jo Seung-Won (4-3-2).
To kick off the main card, a welterweight matchup between Kim Jae-Gil and Ahn Kyung-Jun was originally scheduled. But the former is injured and will be replaced by Ahn Jae-Young with the match now contested at 185lbs.
