THE "KILLER" KHAI TO UNLEASH ON OCT 28
Lương Nguyễn Công Khải is one of the best known names in Vietnam boxing, yet the Quảng Ngãi fighter vanished from the sporting landscape for close to 3 years !
Khải was highly regarded on the local scene, even winning a HCMC title, but years of training took a toll on his body. He decided enough was enough, and ended up having surgery to deal with his chronic shoulder pain, and also his restricted power and movement. But whilst the surgery was deemed a success, there was an extensive period of rehabilitation to endure.
These were long hours of constant stretching and strengthening, and finally Khải knew it was time to put his shoulder to the test. He entered the ring for the first time in three years back in August - a VSP PRO match against former youth champ Truong Ngo Gia Huy - definitely no easy task for your first time back in the ring !
The match was excellent, and despite some ring rust and being slightly short of fitness, the Killer showed many qualities of his former self. At the end, the judges could not seperate the two fighters, and declared it a draw, but it was very obvious that Khai would soon be a force to be reckoned with.
And as if it was scripted, the KILLER returns next Saturday night for VSP PRO 9. He is matched up against DƯƠNG ĐỨC BẢO - a southpaw from Max Fight club in HCMC who will be making his professional debut. The reports are extremely good on this boy, and his team are confident they can keep Khải out of the winner's list for a little while longer.
But based on what we saw in August, and knowing the level that Lương Nguyễn Công Khải was at before he was injured, this may be a big task for Bao.
EXPECT TO SEE A KILLER UNLEASHED NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT !
VSP PRO 9 - Saturday October 28th Starts 6pm
