HITMAN VOWS TO PUNISH CHINESE RIVAL
Nguyễn Văn Hải is revered as perhaps the most experienced multi discipline fighter in Vietnam - but he also lays claims to being pound for pound the strongest !
A man with a passion for physical fitness, Nguyễn Văn Hải went for close to three years without a boxing match, all the time training young pupils in Hanoi in various fight techniques. But a return to the ring last year in Manila against Jerald Into rekindled his love for the sport, and he has since scored two impressive pro wins.
VSP Boxing star Hải will be fighting the main undercard bout in Ho Tram Vietnam next weekend, and will be joined by young Philippines prospect Romeo "Yong" Tenorio, who gets his first taste of competition on foreign soil.
Nguyễn Văn Hải (4-1) takes on resuming top Chinese prospect Xiao Tao Su (11-2) over 8 rounds in what should be a thriller.
Asked his feelings on the bout, Hải was very enthusiastic:
" I am very excited to be able to do what I love once more. Each match for me is a gift.
I respect all opponents, but I plan to give him a welcome to Vietnam that the fans will love !
I know I will hurt him and plan to finish him "
