October's Fight Of The Month: Damien Alamos vs. Diesellek Aoodonmuang II, Oct. 12

Although there's a ton of action going on this month with marquee match-ups all over the place and every week, the fight I'm most excited for probably is a bit under the radar for the casual kickfighting fan or for someone who doesn't follow Muay Thai. It takes place this Friday, October 12 at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand as Damien Alamos and Diesellek Aoodonmuang rematch from the fight they had last year.

September 23, 2011 was the day when Damien Alamos and Diesellek Aoodonmuang had their first fight. At the time Alamos was still working his way up on the scene in Thailand, although Diesellek wasn't as highly ranked or in the same position that he is today also. Although no video exists of the fight, by all accounts it was a war. Here's an account from ringside, by Rob Cox:

"Damien from France defended his W.P.M.F World title in this fight, which also had a 400,000 baht side bet riding on it. Diesellek matched Damien shot for shot in the first 3 rounds, landing with sharp kicks and some solid punches. Damien was just a little bit too strong and tall though and pulled ahead in the 4th with some huge barrages of knees and solid kicks that saw him successfully defend his title."

Fast forward to the present and things have changed significantly for each fighter, for the better. Damien's now the Lumpinee champion at 140lbs, recently becoming the first non-Thai to ever defend a Lumpinee title and Diesellek has been on fire lately, stopping F16 Rajanont twice in a row, as well as defeating Noppakrit Kor Kampanart in May. Diesellek is currently ranked #2 at 135lbs at Lumpinee.

The primary reason why I like this fight so much is because it has potential fight of the year written all over it both in terms of action and significance/storyline. Damien and Diesellek are never in boring fights. Both have power, Diesellek in his kicks and Damien in his left hand. Although the Lumpinee title isn't on the line this time, Diesellek is going to try and salvage his loss to Damien by all means, with his trainer saying he'd win by stoppage. Diesellek pursues the finish every time and Damien can change a fight in an instant with his counter left hook.

Whether the fight is fought from range or in the clinch, it should be fireworks wherever it goes. Both Damien and Diesellek have been in top form lately and with the way their styles match up, I can't see this being anything else other than a great fight.

Oct. 4: Saenchai vs. Singdam Rematch, Somluck Khamsing Returns With 5.27M Baht On The Line

A huge rematch is going down at Rajadamnern Stadium on Thursday in Bangkok, Thailand, as well as a stacked card and somewhat of a special attraction.

After their fight under a month ago on September 7, Singdam Kiatmoo9 and Saenchai are rematching. Singdam surprised many by winning last month and what was even more impressive is that he beat Saenchai at range. The difference this time is that they'll get to weigh in at the same weight at weigh ins at 133, whereas last month, Singdam had a three pound weight advantage at weigh-ins.

Although Saenchai vs. Singdam is a huge fight, the fight garnering the most attention is between the return of the now 39-year-old Muay Thai legend and former Olympic boxing gold medalist Somluck Khamsing and 51-year-old Yodwanpadet Suwanwichit. The fight has the largest ever side bet on a fight, with 5.27 million baht on the line. You might remember Somluck losing a huge bet earlier this year when his fighter that he was betting on, Jaisoo Thor. Thepsutin got destroyed in the first round by Yodkhunpol Sitmonchai. In the mean time, Somluck also called out Buakaw and Kem Sitsongpeenong leading up to this fight.

Also on the card is the seventh fight between Petboonchu F.A. Group and Nong-O Gaiyanghadaogym, with Nong-O being 5-1 against Petboonchu, stopping him three times in the process. There last fight was fairly close and Petboonchu has been in good form lately, so this one should be interesting to see if Nong-O just had Petboonchu's number or not.

The phenomenal youngster Petpanomrung Wor. Sungprapai tries to avenge a loss to Pokaew Fonjaengchonburi at 124lbs while a man who's fought both of them, Thong Puid9d, faces Tingtong Chor Koyuha-Isuzu in the third fight between them which should be all action. Another battle that should be all action is Sitisak Phetphayathai vs. Thongchai Sitthongsak at 132lbs.

Kem Sitsongpeenong Wins Toyota Marathon

The Toyota Marathon went down yesterday in Chang Mai, Thailand, with an eight man tournament during the day with four Thai fighters and four Japanese fighters. The four Thais were Kem Sitsongpeenong, Prakaysiang Gaiyanghadaogym, Sirimongkol Sitanuparp and Thepsutin Pumphanmuang. The four Japanese fighters were Kasuya Takeda, Namoto Mashafumi, Chimichi Takeru and "Tsunami Fist," whose real name wasn't provided.

The quarter finals saw two Thai vs. Japanese match-ups and you guessed it, they were both one sided stoppages with Prakaysiang Gaiyanghadaogym stopping Namoto Mashafumi and Sirimongkol Sitanuparp demolishing Tsunami Fist. The other quarter finals saw Kem Sitsongpeenong getting the better of Thepsutin Pumphanmuang to pick up a decision win and Kasuya Takeda beat Chimichi Takeru .

Kem drew Prakaysiang in the semi finals, once again getting the much tougher opponent but it didn't matter as Kem still outdid Prakaysiang to win a decision, showcasing all facets of his game. Sirimongkol got the easy fight in Kasuya Takeda and once again demolished his Japanese counterpart.

Kem and Sirimongkol met in the final and once again, Kem showcased all facets of his game to just simply get the better of Sirimongkol for the whole fight.

For Kem, this was a huge tournament win after a disappointing performance at the IFMA World Muay Thai Championships where he lost to Vitaly Gurkov and ended up with a bronze medal. These were his first pro fights since June where he stopped Alex Asumu.
