FABIO PINCA vs. CHARLIE PETERS HEADLINES LION FIGHT 27 MAIN CARD

Dec 3, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Las Vegas, Nev. – Lion Fight 27 is shaping up to be quite a dandy as multiple-time world champion Fabio Pinca collides with daring and dangerous Brit Charlie Peters in the Jan. 29 main event and fan favorite Tiffany Van Soest will compete in the co-main event.

Pinca (92-23, 33 KO) is the current Lion Fight welterweight champion. He is one of France's top fighters, a supreme technician and amazingly accurate striker who owns noteworthy wins over Muay Thai elite such as Saenchai, Malaipet and Diesellek Aoodonmuang. The hard-charging challenger to his belt, Peters (33-14), is riding a huge wave of momentum after winning the recent Muay Thai Grand Prix 2 4-Man Tournament, which was held at London's 02 Arena in the U.K.

“If you enjoy the cerebral side of fighting, watching a true scientist work inside the ring, then Fabio Pinca is a perfect fighter to study,” said Lion Fight President Scott Kent. “And what I love about the main event match-up is that Charlie Peters has a really high motor plus one-punch knockout power, so this world title bout features a clash of styles that often produces an entertaining fight.

“As for Tiffany Van Soest in the evening's co-main event – what more can I say about her? Tiffany is the real deal. She's ridiculously explosive, throws some of the nastiest elbows in the game and her footwork is beautiful to watch. She's annihilated her past two opponents and truly raised her game to another level. Tiffany's one of those special athletes who also has the good looks and natural charisma that fans gravitate toward – coupled with her possessing the skill set for a long championship reign. She's got the potential to be the Ronda Rousey or Holly Holm of Muay Thai. An exciting and spunky difference-maker like Tiffany can lure in the mainstream fans and make them give Muay Thai a chance.”
