Keith: I’ll see off Thai star Superkim
Muay Thai world champion Keith McLachlan is confident he can knock out his opponent in his next match this weekend.
Keith will take on Thai fighter Superkim on December 5 in Paisley and hopes to secure the 25th victory of his career.
On June 20, Keith knocked out two-time world champion Yannis Belacel in the second round to confirm his status as 59kg WBC world title holder.
Now Keith is looking to add to his impressive record with a win over Superkim on Saturday.
Keith, a coach at Maryhill’s Griphouse gym, said:“He fought in a tournament in London recently but that’s the only information I have on him. I’m feeling confident. I’m ready to knock him out, that’s always the plan.
“I’ve been working and training hard for it.”
World champion Keith notched up yet another victory earlier this month with a second round knock out of French number one, Ahmed Moutfi.
The bout, at the Oran Mor in Glasgow, kept up a winning streak that has propelled the Croftfoot man to UK number one in Muay Thai kickboxing.
Keith holds the IMF World title among seven other titles, including the WBC International and National titles.
But becoming such an elite fighter comes at a huge cost, with Keith training for three hours every day whilst working at his day job as a joiner.
