Kaimookaw Watcharachai Gym Wins WBC and Rajadamnern Titles After Outclassing Aikrit Mor.Krungthepthonburee

Kaimookaw_watcharachai_gym

Kaimookaw Watcharachai Gym claimed both the WBC and Rajadamnern Super Featherweight titles by comprehensively defeating Aikrit Mor.Krungthepthonburee at Rajadamnern Stadium tonight.

He controlled the action in the all important third and fourth rounds, using a stiff jab to constantly interrupt Aikrit's rhythm while pushing ahead on the scorecards by landing solid body kicks which his opponent struggled to answer.

By round five Kaimookaw appeared to be firmly in control but he put an explanation mark on his already impressive performance with a perfectly timed head kick which put Aikrit down for a ten count.

Interestingly enough when the WBC organized their 'Battle of the Belts' event a few weeks ago it was announced by renowned Muay Thai expert Rob Cox that every round would be given equal importance on the scorecards under the unusual WBC scoring criteria.

Presumably the judges at Rajadamnern are not going to change the way they score fights just because there happens to be a WBC title on the line so we have a situation where fights for WBC belts could conceivably be scored under completely different systems depending on where the event happens to be held.

With widespread confusion outside of Thailand as to how Muay Thai fights are actually scored surely it would make sense for every sanctioning body to encourage use of the same set of criteria just to keep things consistent for the sake of both fighters and audiences.

In the co main event Siromongkon PK Stereo mounted a spirited comeback in the final round against Fahsung Sor.Chokkitchai but it wasn't quite enough to win the fight with the judges ruling it a draw.

In the next 48 hours there will be significant Muay Thai events held in both Bangkok and Phattalung. On Friday night at Lumpini Stadium Nong O Gaiyaggandao faces Wacharachai Rajanon, Tong Phuidandee fights Ting Tong Chor Koyuha Isuzu and Jasoo Thor Thepsutin faces Yokunpol Sitmonchai with a three million Baht bet on the line.

On Saturday further South in Phattalung Saketdao Petphayathai takes on Peneak Sitnumnoi and Pentai Sitnumnoi goes up against Kaimookaw's team mate Palungon Watcharachai Gym on another star studded card.

Buakaw Free To Fight Again, Rumored For Next Thai Fight Event

Well it seems as if the Buakaw-Por Pramuk battle may have come to an end.

An arbitration meeting happened today and when it was over, the court acquitted Buakaw and all parties and declared that Buakaw was allowed to fight again. He will have to use Buakaw Por. Pramuk" as his fight name but is free to train on his own. Now 60% of his fight money will go to him, while 40% goes to Por. Pramuk while 75% of income from all other activities outside of fighting goes towards him, with the other 25% going to Por. Pramuk. Por. Pramuk's lawsuit is withdrawn, with the promoter of Thai Fight also dropping his lawsuit against Por. Pramuk, effectively ending the fight over Buakaw.

The court decided that Buakaw's six month suspension should be solved by the Sport Authority of Thailand and the Board of Boxing Sport, with the solution being that Buakaw is allowed to fight.

Buakaw will be allowed to continue fighting in Thai Fight until the end of the year, when his contract with them ends. Speaking of Thai Fight, there's already rumors of Buakaw's next fight from a source close to Thai Fight, saying that Buakaw will fight on the August 17 Thai Fight show in England against a to be announced opponent.

Buakaw is also free to fight in other events, and is allowed to make the decisions on his own, but he has a contract with Thai Fight that ends in December[source]

Kangwanlek Petyindee Makes Successful Comeback 10 Months After Being Shot

kwanwanlek

Kangwanlek Petyindee returned to action 10 months after being shot in the chest in a late night altercation (read the report I wrote for The Nation newspaper here) on Friday night, defeating Petnakorn Sorlatda Gym at Lumpini Stadium.

At 37 years old Kangwanlek is by far the oldest fighter still competing at the highest level in Thailand and held two different national titles at various times last year.

His career appeared to be over last August as he was hit by a bullet when his friend became embroiled in an argument after visiting a restaurant in Thonburi.

Kangwanlek spend three days in the intensive care unit and several weeks in hospital but a couple of months ago he returned to training and last Friday night was his first fight since the shooting.

He was up against a fighter 16 years younger than him and found himself on the receiving end of some solid kicks in the first two rounds of this bantamweight contest.

In the crucial third and fourth rounds the veteran used all his experience to pull away on the scorecards by landing the more effective kicks and being a little bit busier in the clinch. In round five he boxed intelligently to defend the lead and with about a minute to go Petnakorn conceded defeat.

It was an impressive performance from the 37 year old who showed no real signs of ring rust and will want to be involved in a few more big money fights before he retires.
