We have a huge week ahead for fans of Muay Thai. With stacked shows on the 7th, 11th and 12th of this month, it's never been a better time to be a fan. First, we'll turn our attention to the September 7 card, this Friday.
The show is headlined by Saenchai vs. Singdam Kiatmuu9 for Singdam's Lumpinee Stadium Lightweight Title. Saenchai will have to weigh in at 130 and Singdam at 133. Saenchai and Singdam haven't fought since 2006, where Saenchai won a decision. Both fighters are up there in age for Thai fighters but are as good as they've ever been. Saenchai's definitely the favorite to win as he's won their last three meetings and seems to have a style that troubles Singdam but you can't count Singdam out here.
A few bouts were originally scheduled but have now been taken off the card. Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym was supposed to rematch the fighter of the year, Penek Sitnumnoi but Penek pulled out with an illness so Sam-A got moved to the September 11 card against Pokaew Fonjanegchonburi. Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym and Jomthong Chuwattana were also supposed to fight.
In other action on the card, Sagetdao Phetphayathai fights Petboonchu F.A. Group in what should be a grueling clinch affair. Sagetdao and Petboonchu have fought six times, with Sagetdao holding a 4-2 record in the series, also beating Petboonchu earlier this year.
F16 Rajanont will rematch Diesellek Oodonmuang after Diesellek knocked him out with a high kick last month.
Currently the only non Thai holding a Lumpinee title, Damien Alamos defends his Lumpinee Super Lightweight title against Aranchai Pran26. Alamos won his title back in February with a win over Kongfah Oodonmuang.
The Lumpinee Stadium Super Flyweight title is on the line as Superlek Wor Sungprapai fights Muangthai Sor Boonyiam, two of the best teens in Thailand. The Lumpinee Light Flyweight title is also on the line in the fight between Wanchai Sor Kittisak and Sarawut Pitakpaapardaeng.
Last but not least, Wanchalong Sitzornong fights Chokprecha Kor Sakooncher after an amazing fight between the two last month that ended with Wanchalong coming from behind and knocking out Chokprecha with a high kick in the fifth and final round. Wanchalong has won all three of their fights so far but Chokprecha gave him hell the last time out.
