Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym Scores Lucrative Toyota Marathon Win in Bangkok

  • Published in Asia

Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym is now the proud owner of a Toyota Hilux Vigo worth 730,000 Baht as well as the Toyota Marathon belt after beating two separate opponents in Bangkok this afternoon.

At the upscale Asiatique three fighters who had already won Toyota Marathons entered a four man tournament to decide the overall winner which also had 300,000 baht in prize money on the line.

Nong-O, Singdam Kiatmuu9 and Petboonchu F.A.Group were the previous winners and they were joined by a Japanese fighter called Sato Sota in an event promoted by Petyindee.

Singdam and Petboonchu faced off in the first semi final in a battle which saw the recently crowned Lumpinee 140 lbs champion take on his Rajadamnern counterpart.

It was the taller figher who prevailed as Petboonchu was able to neutralize Singdam's right kick by repeatedly catching it and scoring with sweeps, giving him a comfortable lead at the end of the second which he easily defended in the third.

Nong-O would have been happy with the draw as he faced the unfancied, albeit much larger, Sota in the opening round and, as expected, the Thai won comfortably, although he had to cover up and defend himself from some left elbows which could have jeapordized his involvement in the final.

After a brief break for a boxing match the two fighters returned to the ring for the final and in the opening round Nong-O was able to successfuly disrupt Petboonchu's rhythm with a mixture of switch kicks, teeps and sweeps.

In the second round Nong-O, who tends to get the better of Petboonchu, manged to sweep him again before catching a kick and kicking away his opponent's standing leg to take a clear lead into the final round.

Petboonchu started the final round aggressively but never looked like turning the fight around as Nong-O was able to evade all his attacks and counter effectively to win the fight and take home the belt, cash and car.

In other Muay Thai action Kem Sitsongpeenong, Phetmorakot Wor.Sungprapai and Berneung Topkingboxing all stopped overmatched Westerners.

Caged Muay Thai Returns This Weekend

  • Published in Muay Thai

Legend John Wayne Parr was supposed to retire a long time ago, but he had this crazy idea to take muay thai and put it inside of a cage while wearing MMA gloves. Of course, he wouldn't ask someone to do something like that if he wasn't prepared to and he did just that. Since then the Caged Muay Thai shows have taken off big time in Australia and this weekend they return for Caged Muay Thai 5: Lidon vs. Badato.

The event will be streamed live via GFL.tv.

Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym Moving to Singapore to Join Evolve MMA

  • Published in Muay Thai

One of the best Muay Thai fighters of the last year, Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym, is to become a trainer at Evolve MMA. The reigning Rajadamnern 135 lbs champion and recent Toyota Marathon winner will be moving to Singapore to work with both fighters and students.

In 2005 Nong-O won the Thailand 118 lbs belt, his first major title, and was also awarded the prestigious ‘Sports Writers’ fighter of the year award. The following year he won his first Lumpinee title while competing at 122 lbs.

Nong-O would go on to become a fixture on the biggest cards at the Bangkok stadiums regularly facing off with the biggest names of the era like Saenchai Sor Kingstar, Petboonchu FaGroup, Singdam Kiatmoo9,  Jomthong Chatmoo9, etboonchu Fafacing off with the biggest names of the era like Saenchai Sor Kingstar, Petboonchu FaGroup, Singdam Kiatmoo9, Jomthong Chuwattana, Saketdao Petpayathai and Kongsak Sitbonmee.

In 2007 he won the Lumpinee 126 lbs title and two years later he claimed the stadium’s 130 lbs title. Nong-O had to wait until 2013 to win a Lumpinee title in a fifth division, beating Singdam to win the 135 lbs belt. 

Nong-O has already won the Thailand 135 lbs belt by beating Petboonchu the previous year and in 2011 he won his first Toyota Marathon, beating three top Thai fighters in the space of a single afternoon.

In 2014 Nong-O enjoyed a vintage year, beating his old rival Singdam to win the Rajadamnern 135 lbs belt, a title which he still holds to this day. He also knocked out three opponents in quick succession to win the Toyota Marathon and qualify for the Toyota Tournament.

The other three finalists were Singdam, Petboonchu and a Japanese fighter called Shoko Sato but  it was Nong-O who prevailed, beating Petboonhcu by decision in the final to win a Toyota Hilux Vigo and 300,000 Baht in prize money.

Nong-O used to fight out of the now defunct Sit-O camp but in 2011 he switched to the famous Petyindee academy which at the time was attached to the old Lumpinee Stadium. It remains to be seen whether he will continue to compete after joining Evolve MMA or will instead focus full time on working as a trainer.

In Singapore Nong-O will be reunited with numerous fighters he faced during his Muay Thai career with the likes of Singthongnoi Por. Telakoon, Orono Wor Petchpun, Pornsaneh Sitmonchai and Saketdao all currently employed as trainers by Evolve MMA.
