LAS VEGAS – Scott Kent, CEO of Lion Fight, today announced he has signed Muay Thai prodigy Victor Saravia to an exclusive multi-fight deal with Lion Fight promotions. Saravia now fights only for Lion Fight, the world’s largest and most active Muay Thai promotion in the world.
“Victor Saravia is a very talented young fighter who has become a huge favorite with our Muay Thai fans,” said Kent. “He stormed into our ring and delivered aggressive and exciting fights, scoring back-to-back TKOs over two top-ranked Muay Thai athletes. We consider him one to watch and are thrilled to have him join our roster of fighters under the Lion Fight banner.”
“It is such a great opportunity to fight for the premier Muay Thai promotion in America, Lion Fight,” said Saravia. “Scott Kent brings out all the best fighters and always puts us in exciting matches. Lion Fight is the biggest organization for any top Muay Thai fighter out there, and I’m glad to be a part of the team.”
Just 20 years old, Saravia made his debut in the Lion Fight ring at LION FIGHT 14. He put his skills on display, surprising everyone with the power, focus and intensity he applied in a TKO victory over Anthony Castrejon. He dropped his opponent three times in the third round, earning praise from AXS TV commentators and fans alike on his explosiveness, before the referee called a stop to the fight. Saravia fought again at LION FIGHT 17, battling New Yorker Andy Singh before landing a barrage of strikes to score a TKO victory at 1:42 in the fourth round. Saravia is based out of North Hollywood, Calif. and trains at the Muay Thai America Gym with Santi Sakkomkai and David Huey. Before turning professional with Lion Fight, Saravia held rank as the IFS Featherweight Amateur Champion, MTU Featherweight Champion (2013) and TBI Amateur Featherweight Champion (2012).
Saravia joins Malaipet Sasiprapa, Kevin Ross, Tiffany Van Soest, Jason Andrada, Ognjen Topic and Gaston Bolanos as the latest fighter to be signed to an exclusive contract with Lion Fight. Kent is signing more top-ranked Muay Thai fighters to his organization and will continue making those announcements as they happen.
