Peneak Sitnumnoi Defeats Sam A, Singdam and Ting Tong Score Wins At Lumpini

Peneak Sitnumnoi beat Sam A to win the Featherweight championships of both Lumpini and Thailand, putting him down for the count in round four on route to a dominant decision victory. Sam A had not lost a fight for well over a year and is widely regarded as the best pound for pound figther in the country at present but he was upstaged by the 22 year old.

Peneak, who trains at Sing Patong in Phuket, has a significant height advantage which Sam A struggled to get to grips with in the early rounds. The star man from the Petyindee stable was hanging in there until he was hit with a perfectly executed elbow in the fourth round which saw him take a count and even though he beat it he was left in need of a knock out.

To his credit Sam A pressed forward and tried to take the fight to his opponent with punches and elbows but Peneak was able to pick him off at will, landing a series of solid headkicks and another elbow which opened up an enormous gash on Sam A's forehead, to go with the cut he had already collected under his right eye.

After such an impressive win a fight with Saenchai seems like an obvious option for Peneak. This matchup had originally been set to take place earler this year but was cancelled amidst a general consensus that Peneak was not ready for such a test, after such a convincing win over Sam A this is an opinion which will probably be rapidly revised.

In the co main event Sam A's Petyindee team mate Nong O lost a razor thin decision to Singdam. It was the eighth time the two had met and Singdam levelled the score at four wins apiece with this victory. Nong O took round three but Singdam battled back to take the fourth and a lack of activity in the final round would ultimately cost Nong O the win, although there were many at ringside who would have given the decision the other way.

Ting Tong registered a win over the seasoned veteran Tong while F16's decline continues after he was convincingly beaten by another Petchyindee fighter, Yodthuanthong, who was a late replacement for Dejnarong. Saenchai's fight with Wanchalerm was cancelled after Wanchalerm suffered an ankle injury earlier in the week.

With this win Peneak overtakes Sam A as the favourite to win the prestigious Sports Writer's Fighter of the Year award which will be announced imminently.

PTT & Liverkick present "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay" Episode 2!

From Phuket Top Team, presented by Liverkick.com!

Boyd from PTT is nothing if not enterprising. Muay Thai documentaries are always anticipated and appreciated; remember the mild furore when the Lumpinee one was announced and its trailers released? A fantastic way of promoting oneself whilst managing to entertain a legion of Muay Thai doco hungry fight fans.

This documentary is somewhat different from the norm, being released in multiple parts. It will follow several fighters, namely "Lucky", a former Rajadamnern and Lumpinee stadium fighter who suffered a nasty arm break one year ago and suffered a subsequent forced exile from the ring; Yoduman, a young boy of 13, with less than three months Muay Thai training but who has already fought three times - twice in Bangla Stadium - and has looked like a composed veteran in the process; Malik, a cocky 19yr old American Nak Muay with a Bangla Stadium title to his name, among other featured stars of the show.

Within the first year of existence, PTT has built up a large online presence through twitter and youtube videos, and has attracted top notch fighters to train there such as Roger Huerta, Mike Swick, Jorge Masvidal, Andrew Leone, and a handful of notable Muay Thai fighters and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts. Now, the latest video trend is not an instructional, a seminar or even one of the boy's fights from Bangla Stadium... it is a documentary about Muay Thai from the perspective of several fighters from the camp, entitled "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay".

Here is episode 2:

Stay tuned to liverkick for the next episode of this ongoing documentary series, and follow @PhuketTopTeam on twitter.

Battle of the Rising Prospects: Chingiz Allazov vs. Alessandro Campagna On Saturday

Both Chingiz Allazov and Alessandro Campagna are seen as some of the fastest rising prospects in kickfighting and on this Saturday, May 5, they'll be facing each other under Muay Thai rules at "La Notte Dei Campioni" in Seregno, Italy.

Despite Campagna recently fighting at 66kg and Allazov usually fighting around that weight, this fight is at 69kg, a weight where Campagna has more experience at. Allazov has moved up a bit in weight recently though, getting ever closer to the money weight of 70kg.

Both fighters have experience under Muay Thai rules and they both fight under K-1 and Muay Thai rules. Most recently, they've both fought in kickboxing, with Allazov defeating Dmitry Rudenko on April 14 at Fight Code and Campagna winning a Wako Pro world title under K-1 rules at 66.8kg against Luciano Lopes in Brazil. Before those fights, they both fought in Muay Thai, where Allazov defeated Erkan Varol on February 25 and Campagna defeated Corrado Zanchi on January 21 at Yokkao Extreme.

LiverKick and Phuket Top Team Present - 8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay Pt 1

I'm very pleased to present this first installment of a series called "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay" which is a production done in conjunction with Phuket Top Team. This series is meant to show what a nak muay (fighter) goes through on a daily basis to pursue their passion for fighting and just how grueling and unforgiving it can be. Look for some of the subtle nuances in this first part of the series, such as the contrasts between the serenity of training in beautiful Phuket, Thailand right by the ocean to the grueling training and how the surrounding areas are not as wealthy as a lot of the first world is.

It is quite simply a different world with a different values system. This time around we are following 13 year old Yoduman who is just beginning his journey as well as Kru Lucky, who has a wealth of experience, but is still putting in insane amounts of work. Of course, you can also see the fantastic facilities offered by Phuket Top Team, as well as their great crew. It is crazy to think that I remember talking to Boyd when this was just a "what if" and then when the gym was in its infancy.
