About Bampara Kouyate
Bampara Kouyate might moonlight as a model on the catwalks of his native France, but don’t let his clean-cut look fool you. The Team Mehdi Zatout standout can seriously fight.
The reigning WMC European Muay Thai Champion and former French National Muay Thai Champion is an impressive athlete with a tall, rangy stature and devastating high kicks that are sure to cause problems for ONE’s talent-laden lightweight Muay Thai roster.
Kouyate most recently medalled at the ultra-competitive 2023 IFMA Muay Thai World Championships to continue his golden run in the sport.
Having started his journey at Biga Muay Thai Club in Moulineaux, France, he now calls Pattaya, Thailand, home. The move has allowed the 28-year-old to compete on the famous Thai stadium circuit, including bouts at Rajadamnern Stadium in Bangkok.
Kouyate is now set to take his talents to the global stage with ONE Championship, where he will make his debut against Iraqi star Shakir Al-Tekreeti at ONE Fight Night 15: Le vs. Freymanov on Prime Video on October 6.
