Fighter Spotlight: Penthai Singpatong & Songkom Sakhomsin

  • Written by Dave Walsh

The light flyweight division in Thailand is one of the most competitive classes in the country. Two of the of the better fighters at this weight are Penthai Singpatong and Songkom Sakhomsin. Penthai is currently the 3rd ranked fighter at Lumpinee stadium and Songkom is #1. With the current champion now fighting at around 115 pounds its likely the title is vacated and perhaps these two could compete for it in the near future.

Penthai is 22, which is fairly old for such a small weight. He stands at 5'3 and has a really good all around style. Last December he lost a heart breaking decision to Kengkla Sor. Chokkitichai for the Channel 7 title, but got a rematch the following month and took the belt in another very close, and thrilling fight. He still maintains that title but most of his fights now are happening at Rajadamnern and Lumpinee. 

Songkom Sakhomsin has exploded on to the scene recently and is smashing most of his competition. In his last eight fights he's 7-1 with 5 KO's. The loan loss comes at a low weight that does not suit him well. At just 16 he seems to be getting better every time out, and his left uppercut has become his signature technique. He fights similar to how Yodsanklai fought when he was a teen.
