Monday, March 17th, 2008


Saenchai Sor Kingstar, The great fighter from Sarakham VS Rachid Belani

This time, it is obvious that Sanchai is smaller than Rachid, but when they both were on the fight the situation became Saenchai was the person who gain advantage over Rachid. As he was too slow to attack as well as ineffective in defense and let Saenchai attacked him by using many types of Muay Thai weapons, which bring Saenchai win the fight and make Thai team led to 3-0 points.

Malaipetch won but courious.
Malaipetch who supposed to fight with Marco Pique but Marco did not make the fight so his replacement was Dennis Sedmiller. This fight was very interesting when Malaipetch seemed losing advantage losing advantage through the fight. Dennis was very good fighter and perform very well attacks and made Malaipetch losing control many times. But when the result was Malaipetch was the winner, there are a lot of criticisms about this by the Dutch fans.

Anuwat Kaewsamrit VS Hassan ait Bassoun

The result if this match is draw but Anuwat should deserve to be the winner when he could take his opponent down for counting. This may be due to Hassan was very well during round 4 when he gave flying knee kicks to make Anuwat bleeding until the doctor would want to stop the fight but Anuwat could survive until the end of the match with a draw.

Yodsaenklai lost!!
Yodseanklai Fairtex vs Andy Souwer. They fought by using K-1 rules and only 3 rounds. Both of fighters has very equal skills until got the draw result at the end of the third round and they had to make extended time until Yodsaenklai lost to Souwer.

S-1 World Championship Got the Winner

Thursday, March 13th, 2008


Songchai Rattansuban, the great Thai promoter, again had made the significant Muay Thai promotion overseas by organised S-1 World Championship in Greece on March 2007. The event went very well and successful and now, again for Thai people to hear that, Thai fighter won the title. Nopparat Kiatkamthorn or “ Khun Kao Pak Ok” one of the great fighter won S1- title by making 3 consecutive wins to the fighters from France, Bulgaria and eventually beat the Belarus fighter and won the title.

Siraphop Rattanasuban, the leader of Thai fighters fleet said that in this tournament was divided into 2 groups, A and B. Group A consists of Greece, Romania, Belarus, Cambodia and group B consists of Thailand, France, Bulgaria and Sweden.

The result of the first round in group A was that Belarus was the winner of this group ad the winner for group B was Nopparat from Thailand. Nopparat’s first fight of the first round was he could beat the opponent from France, won the second fight over the fighter from Bulgaria and went through the final round. In the final round, Nopparat had to fight with the fighter from Belarus. When the final match began, it was obvious that Nopparat was over the fighter from Belarus, he could easily won by score at the end of the match and received the title as well as earning 13,000 USD.

After the tournament, Mr Siraphop revealed that the tournament went very well and over expectation of the promoter. This may be because there has been no big Muay Thai competition carried in This country before so it has become to majority of people’s attention.

S1 Muay Thai World Championship FINAL - THAILAND vs BELARUS

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

Hello everyone, I am back from Greece. The event was good fun. I had a good chance to take the VDO very close to the ring. Thank you very much to Khun Pariyakorn Ratanasuban and her family for a great opportunity.

The belows are the video clips of the final fight: THAILAND vs BELARUS. A complete event report will be posted soon.

S1 Muay Thai World Championship 2008 FINAL

March 7th, 2008
Loutraki, Greece

Round 1

Round 2

Round 3

Even though this fight, Nopparat was the winner, but it might not an easy job for him during round 1 and 2 I could not see any different between both fighters. This is just because the fighter from Belarus (blue corner) had very best of his skill on footwork and punching so he could use his speed to fight with Nopparat. I can also occasionally see the blue corner’s clinching skill and he did very well. Nopparat, how ever seemed to be very relax of this fight and I think that the fight was very friendly too. The impressive moment for myself to this match when they both fighters clinching and fall off the ring, and when they climb up and came back to the ring and hug each other. May be this tournament gained the most benefit of making people enjoyable and ware of the art of Muay Thai

Don’t hate because we’ve got the coolest Muay Thai graphic designs on our chest!

For our 1st weekly (hopefully weekly) MMA Fight Girls “MMA Gear Friday”, TUFF Boxing / Muay Thai Stuff was awesome enough to send us a Muay Thai T-Shirt and Tank Top all the way from Bangkok Thailand! I want to give a big thanks to TUFF and Muay Thai Stuff for their love and support. On to my story…

Excited as all hell I picked up the TUFF package the other day at the post office. Upon opening the package, my first thought was… “top notch”. TUFF packages each of their T-shirts in a unique black and clear muay thai illustration package (pictured below, but the picture doesn’t do it any justice), along with a TUFF Boxing catalog.
