Dave to face Cyrus today

Canadian Lethwei fighter Dave Leduc, who is representing Myanmar, will fight against American Muay Thai and Lethwei fighter Cyrus Washington in the main event of the Open Weight Lethwei World Championship in Wyoming, USA today.
Their fight will be held inside a cage under traditional Lethwei rules, said organizers of the fighting event.
The 28-year-old Dave has won Myanmar’s former Lethwei Champion Tun Tun Min to claim the Cruiserweight World Champion in Air KBZ Aung Lan Championship in 2016 and also possessed undefeated record in the Myanmar Lethwei history.
On the other side, 36-year-old Cyrus Washington is a former Muay Thai World Champion, as well as former WBC US National Champion. The American fighter received worldwide attention for being one of the first successful foreigners to compete in Lethwei in Myanmar, and he also defeated Tun Tun Min via third-round knockout in 2014.
On August 20, 2017, Cyrus Washington faced Dave Leduc inside the Thuwunna National Indoor Stadium in Yangon at the occasion of Myanma Lethwei World Championship, and their fight just finished with a draw.
With over 100 fights to his record, Cyrus Washington was the more experienced fighter than Dave Leduc who is only having 22 fights.
Upon today’s match, Dave has said he will do his best.
“This fight is for my legacy, Cyrus Washington is the only other fighter to have finished Burmese Lethwei legend Tun Tun Min, so I need to finish him in a clear, decisive matter to solidify my status as best non-Burmese Lethwei fighter of all time,” Dave said.—Lynn Thit (Tgi)
