Best of Siam 3 Tomorrow: Pinca vs. Sitthichai Rematch

Best of Siam is back with its third edition tomorrow in Paris, France and once again features a card with a number of Thais being brought over to fight French competition in Muay Thai.

The main event sees a big rematch from 2010, with Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong fighting Fabio Pinca. Sitthichai won their first encounter in a tournament, so they didn't fight five full rounds. Since then, Pinca has upped his reputation by facing a number of well known Thais and hanging with them. When it comes to Muay Thai around 67-70kg, Sitthichai is probably the next big thing, although he's most definitely already one of the best there.

Right under the main event is Sitthichai's stablemate Kem Sitsongpeenong, who Pinca's teammate Mickael Piscitello. Both Kem and Piscitello fought at Yokkao Extreme on January 26, with Kem comign away with a draw and Piscitello losing a decision to Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee.

Medhi Zatout will fight Kaoponlek. Kaoponlek has been around for a very long time, since the 90s, but is still only about 34 or 35. He has lived in Italy for quite some time now after being a Lumpini champion in the 90s. He's still a tough test and a strong fighter after all these years and should make for an interesting fight with the solid Zatout.

Petchasawin Seatransferry also returns to Best of Siam, this time taking on Charles Francois. Francois has come up short in the past against Thais and this fight will be one of the bigger ones of his career.

Ayoub El Khaidar and Soufian Bougossa are two of France's brightest up and comers in the lighter weight divisions and are set to face off after some shuffling with the fight card.

Another fight sees French up and comer Raphael Llodra fighting the grizzled veteran from Holland, Marco Pique. In the lone women's bout on the card, England's Lucy Payne fights France's Sandra Sevilla.

Check Out Muay Thai Combat Episode 7 Featuring Saenchai

Muay Thai Combat

When you think about Muay Thai and some of the best over the past few years, without a doubt the name of Saenchai should come to mind as he has fought all over the world while still staying close to his home base in Thailand fighting in the top stadiums. His style is really second-to-none and against non-Thais he has been known to fight as high as 147lbs, over 15lbs above his natural 140lbs weight class.

In the latest episode of Muay Thai Combat, episode 7, Stefania Picelli, the mastermind behind Muay Thai Combat as well as Yokkao Extreme, takes us inside of the Saenchai seminar in Italy, following the wild, breakthrough success of the latest Yokkao Extreme event. Stefania finds a way to not only stay busy, but to keep bringing some of the best muay thai content around the world, which is hard not to applaud. Go ahead and check this out here.

So after watching that, what are the chances that you'd like to attend a seminar from Saenchai? Yokkao are looking at the possibility of getting Saenchai back out to the United States to fight again and maybe even hold a seminar. They want to hear who you would want Saenchai to fight in the United States and where you'd like to see a seminar from him. I know for me, personally, I'd love to see Kevin Ross get another shot at Saenchai.

So send a tweet to @YokkaoBoxing as well as @LiverKickdotcom with who you'd like Saenchai to fight and if you'd like to see a seminar!

Sunday, February 17
Orono Eminentair vs. Daoangkarn Kiatpetch

Obviously this week is nowhere near as big as last week but there are still some quality match-ups to go around.

Monday's event is a Onesongchai show and features some important fighters in the lighter divisions. At 103 lbs, #4 Lumpini ranked mini flyweight Saksit Srithivet fights Raktemroi Visootjaroenyont. #7 Lumpini ranked light flyweight Pitchichai Or. Bor. Tor. Khampi comes off a stoppage win and fights Phetlamsin Kiatphontip.

The fight between Lookman and Rungphet on Tuesday has the potential to be a great one. Lookman was in the Channel 7 Fight of the Year last year, with Seeoui.

Friday's show is probably the "big" one of the week, with Mondam and Superlek in the main event. These two are some of the most dynamic young fighters on the scene right now. They fought back in November, with Superlek winning a decision. Yuthachai is also back after a war with Yodtuantong last month and fights Dejnarong, who just made his return not too long ago. Yodmanoot vs. Peteng is an important fight as well. Peteng is one of the hottest up and comers on the scene. With Satarnmuanglek having just won the Thailand title at 105lbs and Peteng having beaten him before that, this could set up a rematch and a chance for Peteng to fight for that title.

This past week saw a ton of notable and big fights. A large portion of them were concentrated on the cards on Tuesday and Thursday, with Tuesday's show being at Lumpini and Thursday's being at Rajadamnern.

Tuesday's show was stacked from top to bottom. Chokprecha vs. Ponkrit was the main event and it was an interesting clash of styles. Though Chokprecha is very aggressive, lately he's fought a lot more strategically and as a result has seen much better results. This time out he didn't seem to fight as strategically, and that may be due in part to Ponkrit doing a great job of enforcing the clinch and scoring with knees, dumping Chokprecha to the canvas numerous times.

Wanchalong vs. Yokphet was a good fight, as all Wanchalong fights are. One of the big difference-makers in this fight was a knockdown that Yokphet scored in round four. It could've gone either way and some referees definitely would've let it go.

Also on Tuesday was a really good fight between Mongkolchai and PetU-thong. This was a geat display of timing from both fighters. My favorite moment of the fight was when Mongkolchai leaned back to evade a kick and then simultaneously dumped PetU-thong.

Friday's card had the real big names on it, including two of Muay Thai's absolute top fighters at the moment in Singdam and Yodwicha. Most people including myself thought Singdam would be too much for the surging Yodwicha but once again we were all proven wrong. Yodwicha's clinch and knee game overwhelmed Singdam and got him another top victory. I didn't even expect Yodwicha to beat Petboonchu in his last fight but he keeps defying expectations and at 17 years of age is a phenom to have done what he's been doing at 130-135.

Pokaew and Sam-A fought to a draw in a fight that was very different from their last one. The last one saw Pokaew stalking forward, trying to clinch and knee while Sam-A put on a clinic moving around the ring. This time out Pokaew changed his game up and kicked more and it definitely troubled Sam-A, who came storming back in the fifth round and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Pokaew. It was a close fight that I've seen people score for both sides. If I had to pick a side I think I'd go with Pokaew as the winner.

Friday had some pretty good fights as well. Satarnmuanglek stopped Niwlukrak with low kicks in the third round in what was a great process of breaking down a fighter. It was a lot like Pornsaneh's low kick stoppage of Yokvithaya on Thursday, where it was one low kick that stopped the fight. Also on Friday was a rematch between Aikmongkol and Songkom. Aikmongkol took some huge shots but got back his loss from their last fight.

Outside of the major stadiums, Damien Alamos was in action where he rematched Lampard Sor. Khamsing. This time Alamos stopped him with a high kick in the second round.

Saturday saw a pair of vicious stoppages, with Dejrit sparking out Prakaysiang after a left hook and a high kick on the way down. Petnakorn elbowed Petchartchai basically until he was out on his feet, where the referee stepped in and stopped the fight due to a cut. I think it's safe to say that Petchartchai would've gotten stopped regardless of the cut.
