January 3rd’s Hero Legends to feature Yodsanklai Fairtex and Arthur Kyshenko among others

Kickboxing fans, you’re in for a treat at the turn of the year.

Hero Legends returns for another installment on January 3rd in Jinan, China. The event is set to be broadcasted on CCTV-5, one of China’s largest TV networks.

While details are absolutely scarce at the moment, sources are reporting that notable big names like Yodsanklai Fairtex, the former WBC Muay Thai champ, former K-1 champ Arthur Kyshenko, Greek vet Mike Zambidis and Simon Marcus are all set to feature on the fight card.

According to Muay Thai Authority, the only two fighters with opponents confirmed are Zambidis and Marcus. The former is set to lock horns with China’s own Xu Yuan, while the latter meets his compatriot, Shifu Yanzi.

Zambidis, a fifteen time world champ, is on a 4-1 run with his last appearance coming in August under the SUPERKOMBAT banner in Romania. Marcus, meanwhile, is a former WBC Muay Thai Light Heavyweight champ, and featured just a fortnight ago in a split decision victory over Damian Bujan in Argentina.

Here’s the current fight card heading into January 3rd:

  • Mike Zambidis vs. Xu Yan
