This weekend's big kickboxing card from Italy has begun, and the show kicked off with a big fight: Sudsakorn vs. Xu Yan.

The #14 ranked Sudsakorn came in the heavy favorite, however Yan is a fighter who can always make it a fight.  As it turned out, Sudsakorn was simply too much, putting on an absolutly beautiful Muay Thai clinic.  In round 1, Suds used a Muay Thai dump early to show his dominance.  The rest of the 1st was close, but Suds did enough to pull ahead.

Round 2 was the best of the fight as Sudsakorn shifted to the body with a wide range of attacks, including knees, teeps, and some nasty hooks.  Yan stayed in it, including connecting a nice combo, but the Thai fighter was barely affected.

By round 3, Xu Yan was still giving his all, but the body attack had taken it's toll, and the Chinese fighter began to fade.  Highlight of thsi round was a gorgeous jump round kick from Sudsakorn off a caught kick by Yan.  After unelasinh a combo, Suds earned a (somewhat spotty) standing 8 count.  Honestly, that wasn't the best count, but it didn't matter as Sudsakorn easily took the decision win.  Impeccable performance from the Thai, and a great way to kick things off.
