Yesterday at Lumpinee Stadium, a huge Muay Thai card took place with a ton of the top names in the sport.
In the main event, Saenchai took on Singdam for Singdam's Lumpinee Lightweight title. Prior to the fight, Saenchai looked as dominant as ever, with big wins over fighter of the year Penek Sitnumnoi and over Sagetdao Phetphayathai, who had given him a lot of trouble in the past. Despite having a three pound weight disadvantage at the weigh-ins, Saenchai was still the favorite to win. It was Singdam though, who defied the odds and beat Saenchai from range with powerful kicks. The way that Singdam won is the most surprising part, as usually no one can touch Saenchai from range but it was instead Saenchai being the aggressor in this fight. Singdam is now on a six fight win streak.
Aside from the main event, more top fighters in the same weight category as Saenchai and Singdam fought, as Sagetdao Phetphayathai took on Petboonchu F.A. Group. Everyone expected a clinch war and that's what the fight was. Petboonchu got the better of the action in the clinch and took a unanimous decision.
Another lightweight fight that took place was a rematch between F16 Rajanont and Diesellek Oodonmuang. Diesellek knocked out F16 with a high kick just last month. Diesellek got the better of the fight in the rounds that count most. F16 went for broke in the fifth and final round but Diesellek then countered with some vicious body kicks one after the other, stopping F16 and getting the TKO win.
In a rematch of their fight of the year candidate, Chokprecha Kor Sakooncher finally defeated Wanchalong Sitzornong on his fourth attempt. Chokprecha was more strategic and less wild then he usually fights. Rittidej Wor. Wanthavee defeated Palangtip Nor. Sripueng in what apparently was a snoozer.
Superlek Wor Sungprapai defeated Muangthai Sor Boonyiam by decision to win the Lumpinee 155 lb title. Fight of the night went to Sarawut Pithakpabhadiang and Wanchai Rambo-Esarn, with Sarawut with Sarawut picking up the decision in a war.
Damien Alamos is currently the only non-Thai champion of Lumpinee and he defended his title against Aranchai Pran26. Alamos dropped Aranchai early on in the fight and by the end of the fight, Aranchai's face was really busted up. Alamos got the decision win and becomes the first non-Thai to ever successfuly defend and retain a Lumpinee Stadium title.
