When talking about the fabled Vietnamese Tiger fighting spirit, they surely must have based the narrative around Thai Hoang Huy !
This former HCMC Muay Thai champion fell in love with boxing only in recent times, and made his debut in an exhibition bout against an absolute killer named JonJon Estrada - a man who has created absolute carnage in just about every fight he contests.
Estrada had previously scored 15 wins as a professional and owns THE BEST knockout stats in the featherweight division - 14 of his victims have been put to sleep !
And Thai Hoang Huy had NEVER even competed in a boxing match !
Huy did a great job, and after surviving a round one knockdown, traded leather with Estrada until the referee stopped the match in round 3.
It was great learning for the fighter with the ring name of Nak Su, which naturally enough, means WARRIOR.
Saturday February 25, Nak Su is back, and will make his professional debut at VSP PRO.
Huy will contest a 4 round bout in the featherweight class of 57kg.
It is certainly been a crazy ride for the former muay thai fighter who hadn't tried boxing untll 3 months ago !
