Phal Sophorn

    Phal Sophorn (Khmer: ផល សោភ័ណ្ឌ), born in 1994, is a skilled Kun Khmer fighter hailing from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He boasts considerable expertise in both boxing and Kun Khmer kickboxing, with the ring monikers “Nak Leng Keng Pi Kheat” and “Damrey Phluk Pi Kheat,” translating to “the Killer Elbow” and “the Killer Elephant” respectively.

    Born in Taley Village, Sangkat Dankao, Khan Dankao, Phnom Penh, Sophorn is married to Saren Kim Eng, and the couple has two children. In addition to his successful fighting career, Sophorn serves as a police officer with the Ministry of Interior.
