Yokkao 10 & 11 Results

  • Published in Europe

Yokkao enjoyed yet another successful trip to the UK as their double- event was held from the Macron Stadium last night in Bolton, UK. 

Jordan Watson made a triumphant return to the ring as he finished Mickael Piscitello with low kicks midway through their -70kg contest. It wasn’t an easy night for Watson though, as the Frenchman looked dangerous throughout the contest and even tested Watson’s chin with a superbly timed right-hand counter. The success was short-lived for Piscitello though as not long after getting Watson’s attention with the right-hand the bout was called off due to damage caused by Watson’s low-kicks, meaning Watson becomes Yokkao’s new -70kg world champion.

In the second headliner and title fight of the night Pakorn defeated Englishman Greg Wootton via unanimous decision claiming the Yokkao -65kg world title in the process. Wootton was competitive throughout but clearly wasn’t able to match the much more experienced and technical fighter.

Yokkao 10:
Jordan Watson def. Mickael Piscitello via TKO (low kicks) in Round 3
Sabri Sadouki def. Tim Thomas via TKO (referee stoppage) in Round 2
Salah Khalifa def. Steve Long via TKO (referee stoppage) in Round 1
Prathet def. Brian Totty via Unanimous Decision
Ste Foy def. Cathal McDermott via TKO(retirement) in Round 3
Liam McGrandles def. Jordan Williams via Unanimous Decision
Sammy Baruca and Kai Laithwaite fight to a Draw.

Yokkao 11:
Pakorn def. Greg Wootton via Unanimous Decision
Crice Boussoukou def. Brad Stanton via Unanimous Decision
Dan McGowan def. Nestor Rodriguez via Unanimous Decision
Sam Jackson def. Luca Fonda via TKO (referee stoppage) in Round 4

Yokkao Fight Team Over the Limit for Yokkao 5 Event

  • Published in Muay Thai

Yokkao

A few days ago Stefania Picelli and Yokkao provided us with a mission statement of sorts, one where they talked about bringing in fighters from all over the world, from any and all gyms, to give them a shot at greatness and to achieve their dreams. That is what they look to do when it comes to the Yokkao Fight Team and the Yokkao events that they put on. Not only are they looking to put on the big, crowd-pleasing fights like they have in the past, but they are looking to showcase talents who don't usually have a chance at being featured in a big way like that.

So check out this new promo video for the upcoming event in Reunion, France featuring the Yokkao Fight Team training under some rather extraordinary circumstances.

Video: Sudsakorn vs. Yi Long from Yokkao 9

  • Published in Video

The fight that had everyone talking from Yokkao 9 in China was Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee vs. Yi Long, a match labeled as Muay Thai vs. Shaolin Gung Fu. Sudsakorn ultimately walked away with the victory, but there are still those who have doubted it. So Yokkao has gone ahead and released the footage from the fight and you can decide for yourself. I don't know, it seems pretty cut and dry to me that Sudsakorn won, what do you think?

Yokkao 6: Thongchai Sitsongpeenong vs Toby Smith Video

  • Published in Asia

Yokkao has just released this fight between Thongchai Sitsongpeenong and Toby Smith from January 3rd of this year. I personally had not seen much of the Australian Toby Smith before I watched him look unstoppable against John Wayne Parr in June. He is a strong fighter that likes to walk his opponents down and land huge elbows, clinch up and smother while he knees them. Against Thongchai this strategy did not work quite as planned. Thongchai is only 17 years old in this fight and he already fights like a crafty Thai veteran by making Smith miss and keeping him off balance for most of the first two rounds. When Toby fought JWP he looked so strong that he couldn't even be moved backwards, but Thongchai had him moving back easily, I can't help but be very impressed with this 17 year old Thai.

The last round of this fight is just crazy, let us know what you think of the outcome of the fight, I found it a little surprising.

These are the highlights from Yokkao 10 and 11 and for those of us that couldn't be there, this helps to clue us in to what we missed, while those that were there can relive it.

Yokkao 5 Event Moved to Nov. 15th in Pattaya

  • Published in Muay Thai

Yokkao

For those that were eagerly awaiting the Yokkao 5 event in Reunion, France it looks like the wait will be just about a week longer and instead of taking place in Reunion it'll be moved to Pattaya, Thailand. The card remains the same, though, even with this kind of late notice, which is good. The Yokkao Team feels that they'll be able to put on a better show without problems in Thailand, which seems to be the best for the fighters right now.

Here is their official statement.

Due to several problems in Reunion Island with Maximin Lafuteur president of Associationne Culturelle Muay Thai, we decided to move #Yokkao5 event in Pattaya (Thailand) on 15th November 2013 (Pattaya World Boxing Stadium). The tickets bought at www.monticket.re will be refunded. Out of respect for fighters and in knowing what it means to train for a fight, all fighters contacted by our promoter Stefania Picelli will be remain on the fight card. Stay tuned for a spectacular event feat. Saenchai, Imwiset Pornnarai, Ekapop Sor Klinmee, Silvia La Notte, Andrea Masini and many others..
