Preview: SFC 6 – Rise of Legends
The Singapore Fighting Championship returns with its 6th instalment this September at the all new, refurbished Juggernaut Fight Club at 10 Seng Poh Road! Marking the second championship in 2017, SFC 6 will feature three title championship belts up for grabs for the winners, including Singapore’s first-time duo title belts.
In a return to form, this edition of the SFC will feature the most number of fights in a single night since its debut 3 years ago. This pinnacle of pugilism will feature a total of 20 matches from various martial arts disciplines across the board, including professional boxing, professional MMA and even amateur fights.
Highlights include Singapore’s first professional boxing champion and first female professional boxer Nurshahidah ‘The Sniper’ Roslie. Nurshahidah holds a record of six knock-outs and one loss, and will be taking on 25-year old fighter Siriphon Chanbuala from Thailand for a shot at the vacant WBC Asia Female Featherweight Championship and OPBF Silver Featherweight Championship titles.
Meanwhile, Singapore’s first male professional boxing champion Rafi ‘The Ruffian’ Majid, will be going up against Indonesian veteran boxer Maxi Nahak for the vacant WBC Asia Silver Super Middleweight Championship. Currently an undefeated UBO Super Middleweight champion, with a streak of knock outs, all eyes will be on Rafi as he faces off the younger, yet more experienced Maxi, who previously won the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Silver Middleweight title in 2016.
Making his professional debut at SFC 6 will be Muhammad Ashiq, who who carried the Republic’s flag with honour together with Terrence ‘The Terminator’ Teo at the World Association Kickboxing Organisation (WAKO) Arnold Classic & Oceania Championships in Australia in March. Other fighters on the fight card include Malaysia’s Lee Ai Jin, who made her professional boxing debut earlier this year at SFC 5, and will be returning to go up against Thailand’s Rungnapa Keawkrachang, as well as Vanda Boxing Club head coach Jun Talape, who will be going up against Rusmin Ke Reha from Indonesia. Finally, making his return from a five-year hiatus and having made his professional debut in February 2017, 28-year old Hamzah Faraouk will be going against Jack Langodi Timor from Indonesia.
Through the blood, sweat and tears, there’s no end to the excitement audiences will feel this September at SFC 6, which promises an epic series of bouts that will no doubt get your adrenaline running and fists pumping as these fighters battle it out for these prestigious titles and emerge not just as champions, but legends of the fight scene.
