TaKe On Productions, New York’s premiere Muay Thai promotion, and MSG Sports announced the return of full rules Thai Kickboxing to Atlantic City with “Battle at Bally’s 2,” a professional and amateur Muay Thai event set to take place on Sunday, August 11 in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Casino beginning at 6:00pm. Sanctioned by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, this event will feature a fight card that includes today’s best professional and amateur Muay Thai fighters, competing under full Thai rules which allow for forceful knee and elbow strikes.
The main event will feature two professional Muay Thai fighters from New York, in Jay Matias from Sitan Gym and Douglas Ahammer from Chok Sabai Gym. The Co-Main Event features a rematch of a controversial draw from the historic March 16 “Muay Thai at the Mecca” card at the Theater at Madison Square Garden, in Sean Hinds (C3 Athletics/Mushin MMA) versus Deshawn Robinson (America’s Finest Kickboxing). There will also be two amateur titles on the line with Spencer Grekoski (7-1) meeting Chris Mauceri (7-2) for five rounds of Full Thai Rules to claim the first-ever TaKe On 145 pound title, as well as Ariel Abreu (5-0) versus Paul Miller (3-2) for the first-ever TaKe-On 185lb title.
Other featured bouts on this explosive fight card include Andy Singh (Pin Point Muay Thai) vs. Anthony Demaio (Staten Island Muay Thai), Prairie Rugilio (Girl Fight MMA) versus Kylie Noll (Sensei’s Muay Thai), and Freddy Cheung (Sitan Gym New York) versus Scott Krampetz (Catone’s MMA).
