Huge main event announced for Muay Thai For Life 3.0: “A massive super fight”Frontkick.online

Muay Thai For Life, the fastest growing Muay Thai promotion in Scandinavia, just announced a big main event for its upcoming MTFL 3.0 event in Gothenburg, Sweden on September 10.

As previously reported, the promotion managed to sign former ONE Championship title contender and decorated champion Magnus “Crazy Viking” Andersson to a one fight deal despite the Swede being under contract with ONE. Now it was just made official that Andersson will headline Muay Thai For Life 3.0 against Danish-Moroccan star Youssef Assouik, who has several championships to his own name.

Patrick Thomsen, founder of Lingnoi Promotions and the Muay Thai For Life series, had the following to say in a statement provided to Frontkick.online:

“This is as big as it gets. Andersson vs. Assouik is a massive super fight between two true champions and international Muay Thai stars. For us to be able to secure this level of a main event is huge for our organization as well as fellow Muay Thai lovers in Sweden, Scandinavia and around the world. You do not want to miss out on this one – get your tickets today on Tickster.com!”

Andersson vs. Assouik will be contested at middleweight, -71 kg.
