IT'S A "LONG" WAY TO THE TOP - VSP PRO 9
(If you wanna Rock'n Roll)
One of Ho Chi Minh City's most popular boxers returns to next Saturday night for the 9th installment of the very popular VSP PRO.
Lê Nguyễn Hoàng Long has perhaps been one of Saigon's unluckiest boxers with injuries, and he resumed from a very long break at VSP PRO last July.
In what was meant to be a "soft" return to the sport he loves, Long was unfortunate to lose his debutant opponent at the very last moment.
Not one to avoid a challenge, Long accepted the monumental task of being matched with in form national team star Nguyễn Hà Minh.
Long showed lots of great signs in his comeback fight, before being caught by his top class opponent late in the bout.
Next Saturday night, Long meets Binh Duong youngster TRƯƠNG HẢI BIỀN in what should be a cracking bout. Long definitely possesses the experience edge over his taller and rangier rival, and it will be interesting to see if he is able to keep this young gun on a tight leash.
One thing for sure, Lê Nguyễn Hoàng Long is a real crowd pleaser and he will definitely be throwing bombs however long the battle lasts.
This event is made possible by the sanctioning of the Vietnam Boxing Organization, who are the regulator of professional boxing in Vietnam.
