The-Lek vs. Detkart Fight Video.

Earlier this week I posted a little preview about this fight and how it would determine the top fighter under 110 pounds in Thailand. The fight itself didn't turn out like I thought it would. Instead it was a 1 sided clinic thanks to the overall skill, and beautiful counters from Detkart. I've never seen anybody use such great movement against The-Lek to avoid his attacks. He's usually good for getting inside to unload knee's whenever he wants, but Detkart had great balance to turn him around and push him away most times. Also he tired out which is very unusual, as he is known for pushing a pace like nobody else in Muay Thai. Part of that could be from a broken nose he received from a Detkart elbow. 

The full five rounds aren't out yet, but should be soon enough. Here is the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds of the fight.
