Kong Hov

    Kong Ho (Khmer: គង់ ហូវ), born in 2000 in Kampong Thom Province, stands as a prominent figure in the world of Kun Khmer. Kong Hov has become a formidable force in the ring, securing numerous victories, with a significant number attained through TKOs.

    Born in Samnak Village in Kor Koh Commune, Santuk District, Kampong Thom Province, Kong Hov is affectionately nicknamed “Runtah Choeung Damrei Chaon Kla Khet Kampong Thom,” a title that loosely translates to “the deadly elephant of Kampong Thom defeating Tigers.” This moniker not only reflects his strength and dominance but also draws a fascinating link to a hometown folktale from the Ramayana. The tale recounts the Monkey Army of Rama transforming into an elephant to wage a holy war against the Demon King Ravana, who also transformed himself into a deadly tiger. The war’s objective was to rescue Sita, who had been kidnapped by Ravana.

    Kong Hov’s journey in Kun Khmer unfolds at the Mahithirith Mesor Thmor Svay Rieng of the RCAF Boxing Association, where he hones his skills under the guidance of his trainer, Bird Kham. Standing at a height of 1.71 meters and weighing 60 kilograms, Kong Hov brings a dynamic and calculated approach to the ring, earning him a noteworthy fight record.
