According to a March 22 report from Lion Fight, former Lion Fight champion Tiffany Van Soest has been added to the stacked Lion Fight 15 Muay Thai card set to go down May 23 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connect.
Van Soest, 25, is an American Muay Thai kickboxer who competes in the bantamweight division. Van Soest is coming off a recent loss to Caley Reece, but she was riding a five-fight win streak prior to that bout.
She'll look to get back in the win column on May 23, against an opponent to be determined at a later date.
Also on the card, Cosmo “Good Boy” Alexandre battles Mark Holst and Kevin Ross returns to action against an opponent to be named later.
Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent is excited to bring his promotion to the East Coast of the United States for the very first time.
Fans have been asking us to bring Lion Fight’s world class Muay Thai events to the East coast for years. We just needed the right venue and the right partner and we found both with Felix Rappaport and his team at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Every year Lion Fight makes bold moves to grow this sport and attract more and more fight fans to Muay Thai, and so we are very excited to bring Lion Fight 15 and this incredible Muay Thai experience to fans out East.
Foxwoods officials are extremely pleased to be hosting the event.
“Foxwoods is one of the entertainment and sports Capitals of the World, and when Scott Butera, our President and CEO, recently asked me to join his team, he tasked me with bringing in the top sporting events available, including Mixed Martial Arts and Muay Thai, which our customers love,” said Felix Rappaport, Senior Vice President and COO, Foxwoods Resort Casino. “Lion Fight Muay Thai may be new to the East Coast, but it’s a huge hit in Las Vegas, offering some of the best standup athletes in the world, going toe-to-toe, in non-stop action. Fans of both Mixed Martial Arts and boxing will love it.”
