WBC MUAYTHAI Super Cruiserweight Champion Steve McKinnon (Australia) will defend his world title in front of his fan base in Sydney on 16 October when he takes on Brazilian challenger Eduardo Mairino.
Invincible Promotions booked the venue at the famous Luna Park landmark alongside the Harbour Bridge with a view of the Opera House.
A packed crowd will be assembling to witness Sydney's favourite Muaythai hero who will take on Brazil's top contender - the master fighter Mairino, who has a record of 37 wins from 51 fights.
McKinnon won the WBC World Super Cruiser title in Jamaica. Before he claimed the famous WBC green and gold belt McKinnon trained in Thailand at the two Fairtex Muaythai training camps alongside former WBC Super Welterweight Champion Yodsaenklai.
A crowd favorite on the Muaythai circuit in Las Vegas, McKinnon has also fought in Bangkok's Lumpinee stadium where he earned a reputation for his fierce courage and eight weapons mastery. His trademark technique is a flying knee attack.
