Superbank Bests Muangthai in Rajadamnern Battle Between Two of Muay Thai’s Brightest Stars

Superbank Sakchaichode cleared up the recent end of year Muay Thai awards and the 20 year old was up against his closest rival for most of them when he faced Muangthai Sor Boongium at Rajadamnern in the first big show of 2014

Superbank appeared to effortlessly control the fight which headlined a One Songchai card, keeping Muangthai at bay with teeps and knees and repeatedly sweeping him to the ground in the third round to soar ahead on the score cards.

Muangthai needed a big comeback in the fourth but found himself being swept yet again when he tried to line up a straight knee with Superbank timing it to perfection to kick away his standing leg and put him on his backside.

Muangthai returned the favour moments later but was unable to mount any effective offence as Superbank frustrated him with a masterful defensive display, cruising through the final three minutes to take a clear cut decision win.

Pakorn PKSaenchaimuaythaigym is the reigning Lumpinee 135 lbs champion and one of the biggest draws in Muay Thai at the moment and was taking on Auisiewpor Sujibamikiew who might not enjoy such a stellar reputation but was given a 5 lbs weight advantage.

Pakorn made light of the size difference to land the harder shots throughout the fight, scoring with kicks and knees more consistently than his opponent who struggled to land anything solid enough to turn the contest around and conceded defeat before the end of the final round.

It was also a good night for Pakorn’s team mates at PKSaenchaimuaythaigym with Prajanchay stopping Lamnampong Noomjeantawanna in the fourth round and Phichitchai finishing Yodsenchuang Chanaidonmuang in the third.

Sangmanee Sor Tienpo was supposed to be returning to Rajadamnern for the first time since getting poisoned last year but the teenager’s proposed fight with Petchlamsin Sorkor Sungaigym fell through.

The Main Event stadium show set for May

 

UK-based promotion The Main Event have announced details regarding their forthcoming stadium show. The event will take place May 23rd at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham and will feature the best talent the UK Muay Thai scene has to offer.

 

For those not too familiar with the promotion, The Main Event originally operated under the name Rumble at the Reebok, hosting events at the Reebok stadium in Bolton, Manchester. Unfortunately, as their popularity increased the venue became unsuitable and they were forced to move out and re-brand. The Main Event has the current attendance record for a Muay Thai event in the UK, pulling in over 3100 spectators for their event last summer. 

 

The likes of Liam Harrison, Andrew Tate and Tim Thomas have all competed under The Main Event banner however the promotions focus is not just on already established fighters, with top UK prospects such as Andrew Lofthouse, Myk Estlick and the Sugden brothers having all competed for the promotion on numerous occasions. 

 

Co-promoter Phil Shedden had this to say regarding the upcoming event 'This show will be like nothing ever seen before in the UK. We're pulling out all the stops to try and finally get the sport we love into the wider public eye for everyone's benefit. 2015 will be a pivotal year for The Main Event and Muay Thai in the UK!'

 

Whilst it's still over four months away it's hard to not be excited about an event of this potential. The likes of The Main Event and Yokkao have been working tirelessly to boost the sports popularity in the UK and with fight cards like this and with Yokkao hosting another double-header in March, it's hard not to envision Muay Thai finally gaining the attention it rightly deserves here in the UK.

 

We'll continue to update you with match-ups as they're unveiled.

Former Lumpinee, Rajdamnern WBC, and WPMF Champion Saketdao Petphayathai Joins Evolve MMA

Saketdao Petphayathai is one of the most decorated Muay Thai fighters of his generation and one of very few men to have ever been a Lumpinee Stadium champion at three weights and this week the 28 year old became the latest legend to join the Evolve MMA fight team.

In 2013 Saketdao won two separate Max Muay Thai tournaments as well as successfully defending his WBC 135 lbs belt but before breaking out onto the international scene he established himself as one of the most successful fighters at the main Bangkok stadiums.

Originally from Maha Sarakham he spent the majority of his career fighting out of the Kiatpetch Gym in Bangkok and took on some of the biggest names in the sport, defeating the likes of Peneak Sitnumnoi, Saenchai Sor Kingstar, Petboonchu FA Group, Singdam Kiatmoo9, Nong-O Gaiyagandao, Anuway Kaewsamrit and Jomthong Chuwattana.

A tall southpaw, Saketdao was known for his knees and won Lumpinee titles at 125 lbs, 130 lbs and 135 lbs as well as the 125 lbs title at Rajadamnern. In 2011 he won the the WBC Diamond 140 lbs titles by beating Kevin Ross in the US and the following year he beat reigning ‘Fighter of the Year’ Peneak Sitnumnoi to claim the WPMF 135 lbs title and also won the WBC 135 lbs belt.

Saketdao will be joining the likes of Namsaknoi Yudthagarngamtorn, Attachai Fairtex, Orono Wor Petchpun, Chalee Sor Chaitaminm Singmanee Kaewsamrit and Saenghiran Lookbanyai at Evolve MMA . Given his coaching commitments it’s unlikely he will be fighting regularly in Lumpinee or Rajademnern anymore but he will continue to compete in Muay Thai.

Saketdao said, “After nearly 20 years of Muay Thai and around 300 fights I want to share my knowledge with foreign students and fighters and I am very happy to be joining the best gym in all of Asia.”
