Kickboxing promotion Lion Fight has finalized the bill for its Aug. 1 card at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn.

Thepnimit “Mr. Knock” Sitmonchai, who owns 98 knockouts on his professional record, will make his U.S. debut against Dean James of Birmingham, England. The fight card will air live on AXS TV.

“Lion Fight fans have been asking us to bring Thepnimit 'Mr. Knock' Sitmonchai, a star in Thailand who trains in one of the most respected gyms in the country, to fight here in the U.S.,” said Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent in a press release. “He's an aggressive and powerful fighter who has more than earned his nickname in this sport, but World Muay Thai Champion Dean James didn't hesitate to step up and take this fight. Sitmonchai vs. James is one of the most exciting main events we've put together.”

Sitmonchai (115-38-5) is ranked seventh at 120 pounds at the highly respected Lumpinee Stadium in Thailand.
