SUPERFIGHT!
MILES vs. ST. LOUIS
In his third professional outing, Calgary's celebrated Muay Thai athlete Jesse 'Smiles' Miles takes on celebrated MMA, Boxing and Kickboxing athlete Jason 'Sumo Samurai' St. Louis. This will be a hotly contested Muay Thai match as Miles squares off against the Sumo Samurai who has almost 50 professional bouts to his name. St. Louis is taller than Miles and possesses very good movement, very fast hands, and is very 'cagey' in the ring. Miles is taking a huge step up in class and ability squaring off with St. Louis. This Superfight is one of at least 6 guaranteed world class Muay Thai bouts on this event.
