The next big card to take place in Bangkok is at Lumpini Stadium on March 9th and will be headlined by a fight between Saenchai Sinbumuaythai and Saketdao Petpayathai. Saenchai had originally been scheduled to take on Penek Sitnumnoi but it was felt that the young fighter wasn't quite ready for such a step up in competition.
Saketdao beat Saenchai twice in 2011, the first fight was very close with all thre judges seeing it 49-48 in his favour after a strong finish, the second fight was more clear cut with the Kiatpetch fighter winning by a margin of 49-47 despite appearing to get hurt by an elbow late in the final round.
Saenchai is coming off a surprising loss to Fabio Pinca which owed more to the Italian judges failing to understand the finer points of the Muay Thai scoring system than the efforts of the French fighter.
A star studded card also pits Wanchalerm Uddonmuang, fresh from a win over Saketdao himself, against Singdam Kiatmoo9 who was recently defeated by Nong O. Two of the stars of the Sing Patong gym in Phuket, whose French fighter Damian Alamos recently claimed the Lumpini 140 lbs title, are also in action with Penek Sitnumnoi up against Wanchalerm Chor Churnkamol and Pentai Singpatong up against Mondam Sor Wirapon.
