Aikpracha Meenayothin vs. Frank Giorgi added to Yokkao Extreme 2013

Yokkao Extreme 2013 takes place on January 26 in Milan, Italy and already has a stacked card featuring Saenchai vs. Diesellek Aoodonmuang, Kem Sitsongpeenong vs. Jordan Watson and more. Aikpracha Meenayothin has been penciled in for the event for a long time now and today it was revealed who he'll be fighting.

Aikpracha will fight Frank Giorgi of Australia in a 71kg Muay Thai bout. Giorgi made his name in Thai Fight in 2011 where he advanced to the finals by defeating Abraham Roqueni and Vuyisile Colossa before losing to Buakaw Por. Pramuk.

This is a pretty good fight based on who's available around 70kg in Muay Thai. Giorgi is no slouch and is 3-0 on the year so far with all three of his wins coming in Australia, including against Steve Moxon and Tobias Alexandersson. Aikpracha also didn't lose in 2012, going 8-0.

Aikpracha Meenayothin Beats Jordan Watson In Bangkok

Today in Bangkok, Thailand, Aikpracha Meenayothin and Jordan Watson fought in a nice match-up between two of the more premier international Muay Thai fighters at around 70-72.5kg. Aikpracha has had a big 2012, where he's established his name as one of the more popular Thais to be fighting around the world while Watson recently made his GLORY debut in kickboxing last month.

In what was apparently a great fight, Aikpracha took a decision victory over five rounds. After, Aikpracha said that Watson was the best farang he'd ever fought. Video of portions of Rounds 4 and 5 are up here, thanks to Yokkao.

Aikpracha closes out 2012 going undefeated on the year with eight wins. He'll see himself in action again at Yokkao Extreme 2013 on January 26 in Milan, Italy against a to be announced opponent. For Watson, his next scheduled bout is also at Yokkao Extreme 2013, as he takes on Kem Sitsongpeenong, and then has a kickboxing fight at GLORY 5 London against Steve Moxon on March 23.

Thai Fight Adds Heavyweight Tournament, Sudsakorn, Ikuysang To Final On December 16

Thai Fight's final event of 2012 takes place on December 16 in Bangkok and features the 67kg final between Singmanee Kaewsamrit and Andrei Kulebin, as well as the 70kg final between Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Vitaly Gurkov.

Thai Fight has also added a four man, one night heavyweight tournament to the event. The participants will be Patrice Quarteron, Dmitry Bezus, Andrei Gerasimchuk and James Kouame. 

As well as the heavyweight tournament, two more fights, or should I say mismatches, were added to the card. Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee fights Gustavo Mendes and Ikuysang Kor. Rungthanakiat fights Angelo Veniero. These two fights seem like more typical Thai Fight mismatches, just like the last time out where Sudsakorn and Ikuysang's opponents didn't have a chance.

Thanks to muaythaitv.fr for the news.
