Although there's a ton of action going on this month with marquee match-ups all over the place and every week, the fight I'm most excited for probably is a bit under the radar for the casual kickfighting fan or for someone who doesn't follow Muay Thai. It takes place this Friday, October 12 at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand as Damien Alamos and Diesellek Aoodonmuang rematch from the fight they had last year.

September 23, 2011 was the day when Damien Alamos and Diesellek Aoodonmuang had their first fight. At the time Alamos was still working his way up on the scene in Thailand, although Diesellek wasn't as highly ranked or in the same position that he is today also. Although no video exists of the fight, by all accounts it was a war. Here's an account from ringside, by Rob Cox:

"Damien from France defended his W.P.M.F World title in this fight, which also had a 400,000 baht side bet riding on it. Diesellek matched Damien shot for shot in the first 3 rounds, landing with sharp kicks and some solid punches. Damien was just a little bit too strong and tall though and pulled ahead in the 4th with some huge barrages of knees and solid kicks that saw him successfully defend his title."

Fast forward to the present and things have changed significantly for each fighter, for the better. Damien's now the Lumpinee champion at 140lbs, recently becoming the first non-Thai to ever defend a Lumpinee title and Diesellek has been on fire lately, stopping F16 Rajanont twice in a row, as well as defeating Noppakrit Kor Kampanart in May. Diesellek is currently ranked #2 at 135lbs at Lumpinee.

The primary reason why I like this fight so much is because it has potential fight of the year written all over it both in terms of action and significance/storyline. Damien and Diesellek are never in boring fights. Both have power, Diesellek in his kicks and Damien in his left hand. Although the Lumpinee title isn't on the line this time, Diesellek is going to try and salvage his loss to Damien by all means, with his trainer saying he'd win by stoppage. Diesellek pursues the finish every time and Damien can change a fight in an instant with his counter left hook.

Whether the fight is fought from range or in the clinch, it should be fireworks wherever it goes. Both Damien and Diesellek have been in top form lately and with the way their styles match up, I can't see this being anything else other than a great fight.
