Undefeated Toowoomba boxer and current WBC World youth silver featherweight champion “The Great White” Brayd Smith is set to make his international debut when he fights on the prestigious “Kings Cup” event on December 5 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The “Kings Cup” is the highlight of a weeklong festival held every year by OneSongchai Co Ltd to honor His Majesty The King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest reigning monarch, King of Thailand. The event is one of the most prestigious fight shows in the world, held annually on the Kings birthday December 5 over the past 20+ years and is attended by up to 300 000 fight fans every year at “Sanamlaung” Thai Royal field. It is also watched live on TV by the millions that cannot attend. Manager Brendon Smith just this week returned from Thailand after finalizing the deal with Thailand’s number 1 promoters Onesongchai promotions.
“This is a massive opportunity to be a part of such a huge day in Thailand,” said Brendon Smith. “We have spent a lot of time training in Thailand. They are great people and we realize what an amazing man their King is. I would like to thank my friends at Onesongchai especially Mrs Pariyakorn Ratanasuban for giving us this opportunity to not only have Brayd fight on the card to honour the king but allowing us to document this journey and bring it back to Australian television”.
