Artem Levin vs. Steven Wakeling On Saturday In England

LiverKick's #1 ranked light heavyweight, Artem Levin has been pretty quiet this year, having to pull out of his fight on June 9 in Bangkok but on Saturday in England he'll be in action against a very formidable opponent.

Levin is facing Steven Wakeling at Xplosion Fight Series, an event organized by It's Showtime commentator and also a fighter, Kieran Keddle. The fight will be five rounds of three minutes and under full Muay Thai rules.

Wakeling hasn't fought a lot recently (apparently he's had trouble finding opponents to fight) but is a very good fighter and holds a win over John Wayne Parr. Most of his career has been at lower weights than this fight, which is at 79.3kg(175lbs).

Artem Levin is the current It's Showtime 77MAX World Champion, defeating L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni for the title at the end of 2010 and defending it against Murthel Groenhart last year. Levin did stay busy in April, by winning the IFMA European Muay Thai Championships at 81kg. His only professional fight and win of the year so far was against Cheick Sidibe back in March.


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


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]
