The Sports Authority of Thailand, in conjunction with the Tourism and Sports Ministry, will stage a night of elite Muay Thai action at Bangkok's World Siam Stadium next month, organisers said.

On Nov 7, a host of stars in the country's traditional martial art will showcase their fighting skills to domestic and international audiences.

A press conference was held this week to promote the inaugural SAT Hero Series Muaythai event aiming to promote the sport to the masses.

The programme will feature Kaonar PK Saenchai taking on Superbon Tded99 in the headline contest.

This will be the third encounter between the two, with Kaonar prevailing on both occasions.

There will be a mix of established champions and rising stars with a total of seven bouts on the card in what is expected to be an exciting night of action.

The organisers hope to build on the momentum and popularity of Muay Thai in Thailand and around the world to promote the stars of the Hero Series to an established fan base and broaden the reach of the sport to new horizons during these testing times hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event will begin at 4pm and will be televised live by MCOT HD (30) from 5pm. There will also be several activities at the stadium from 9.30am. Admission is free.
