SLAMM!! is coming back to the Netherlands and with it they're bringing back the "Holland vs. Thailand" series on May 27. The series has produced match-ups like Mosab Amrani vs. Bovy Sor Udomson and Andy Souwer vs. Yodsanklai Fairtex to name a few. They've announced four good fights for the card so far, including one spectacular fight. Click "Read More" to see all four great fights announced.
Mohamed Khamal said he was shifting his focus to Muay Thai. Well, he wasn't joking. Not only is he already fighting Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong in Thailand in March but now he'll fight Saiyok Pumpanmuang at 67kg on May 27 for SLAMM!!. Saiyok's competition as of late has been soft, but he's never lost outside of Thailand and never lost to a non Thai. Khamal may be Saiyok's toughest test in a while even though he isn't fully accustomed to Thai rules.
Nieky Holzken returns to action and he'll take on Nonsai Sor Sanyakorn at -72.5kg. Holzken had been fighting Muay Thai for the MPL at the end of last year so he's no stranger to elbows. As always with Dutch fighters against Thais, he'll have to make sure his clinch game is sharp enough to hang.
Faldir Chahbari fights the always exciting Bovy Sor Udomson at 70kg. This has all the makings of an action packed fight. Bovy is going to come forward and throw big shots while Chahbari counters back with punch-kick combinations.
Last but not least announced, Pornsaneh Sitmonchai gets to try his hand internationally against Ilias El Hajoui from Team Gunyar at 61kg. Pornsaneh is old, especially for his fighting style but at least now he's getting the opportunities to fight internationally after getting roughed up in Thailand his last few fights. Pornsaneh is an all action fighter so this should also be a good fight. El Hajoui has fought Thais before, losing to Rungravee Sasiprapa and defeating Paowarit Sasiprapa but by no means is he really a Muay Thai stylist. The weight favors El Hajoui but Pornsaneh should be able to make up for it.
