Lion Fight announces main card for Lion Fight 15

Five solid match-ups are set for Lion Fight 15 in the East Coast next month.

Officials, on Thursday, announced an all-stars line-up including Kevin Ross vs. Christian Mauceri, Tiffany Van Soest vs. Lucy Payne, Jason Andrada vs. Mohammed Lemjerdine, Tom Evans vs. Tim Amorim and to round out the main card, a main even contest between Cosmo Alexandre and Mark Holst.

Lion Fight 15 takes place May 23 at the Foxwoods Casino Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The event will be aired LIVE on AXS TV beginning 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Alexandre and Holst are also professional Mixed Martial Artists with well over 20 bouts between them. But come fight night, it will be their Muay Thai skills that will be put to the test in this scintillating main event affair.

Alexandre is coming off a victory over Nampon PKMuaythai at Lion Fight 11 in September last year. A three-sport professional athlete, he fights out of the famed Blackzilians training camp in Boca Raton, Florida. Alexandre is currently on a 2-3 run in Muay Thai/Kickboxing, with two of those defeats coming at hands of fighting extraordinaires Giorgio Petrosyan, and Yodsanklai Fairtex.

“Muay Thai is my first love and I’m excited to give fight fans out East a great main event at Lion Fight 15,” said Alexandre. “I’m taking this fight seriously and don’t plan to let the judges decide. So don’t blink. This is Muay Thai, the action doesn’t stop and I’m going to give my fans a knockout.”

Holst meanwhile, is a former 155-pounder in the UFC. He has 19 wins and six knockouts in professional Muay Thai. Known for his aggression and trademark roundhouse kicks, the 28-year-old Canadian will have a taste in a pro stand-up fight for the first time after a hiatus.

“I am very excited to make my comeback to the Muay Thai ring,” said Holst. “I have always loved to fight Muay Thai rules and I will be doing so for the prestigious Lion Fight organization. It is a great honor for me to fight Cosmo Alexandre, I can’t wait to put on a show for everyone watching!”

Elsewhere on the card, fight fans will, of course, be also looking forward to favorite Kevin Ross as he tussles against the undefeated Christian Mauceri. Tiffany Van Soest rematches Brit Lucy Payne to prove her TKO victory in their first meeting was no fluke, while two of the sport’s fastest rising stars in Nick Chasteen and Jason Andrada will collide as well.
