KIWI – Daniel Kerr is one of the best Muay Thai fighters New Zealand has ever produced and the current WKA Light Heavyweight South Pacific Muay Thai titleholder. In MMA he is a former TUFFA Middleweight champion who has faced some of the best 185 lbs/ 84 kilo fighters in Australia. 38 of his 47 Muay Thai wins are by knockout and he has heavy hands and devastating leg kicks.
Although Kerr is clearly a Muay Thai specialist he has been involved in the MMA game long enough to know how to defend takedowns and be able to handle himself on the ground.
Dan Kerr represents Lanna Muay Thai in Chiang Mai. For more information, please visit:
Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“This is a great match up between two big, powerful 84 kilo/ 185 lbs fighters. On paper it looks like a striker vs grappler match up but I have a feeling Marcolla is not going to be overawed by his opponent’s stand up. The Brazilian is confident on his feet and has been doing a lot of Muay Thai himself lately, if it does go to the ground Kerr won’t exactly be out of his depth either, I think both fighters will be ready to go the full three rounds if they have to and this should be a really fun fight for the DARE fans.” He said.
DARE 2/2012 is the fourth event put on by the DARE promotion and takes place at Club Insomnia Bangkok on March 17th. The first fight will get underway at 4pm local time and the entire event is being streamed live on the internet at www.darelive.tv and at www.gfl.tv for just $9.99.
