Trust me, we all want to see this fight in full, but until then, check this out to watch Petrosyan fighting very aggressively, something he has been heavily criticized about in the past.

Brent (Cacti) posted not too long ago a list of top fighters in Thailand. Some names have been mainstays of top level Muay Thai for years (or, in the case of Saenchai, decades). Some are new.

Chokprecha Kor Sakooncher is one of the new ones. His name was building slowly as a knockout artist before he challenged for the title. Since beating Neungthep this year for the 115 lb Lumpini Strap, he’s been attracting a lot more attention.

This bout with Werachai is a good showcase of Chokprecha’s style and a stylistic treat to watch. Their games play right into each other.

Werachai takes a lot of risks when he fights, relying on skill and being more relaxed than his opponents. Remind us of anyone we’ve seen? Distance is his best defense and the movement it generates makes for exciting bouts.

Chokprecha wears red in this bout, Werachai blue. Banana821, a legend, posts this fight for us.

Thai Fight Extreme held another event in Hong Kong today and featured some of the best in the business. The organization has proven to be a great asset for fighters fighting under full Thai rules, most notably Buakaw Por. Pramuk. It's nice to see Buakaw fighting under Thai rules, utilizing his full arsenal of techniques. Thai Fight Extreme has another event scheduled for August 7 in Tokyo, Japan and you'll be seeing more of Buakaw, Yodsaenklai and Sudsakorn on that card. Check out the videos.

A new documentary on the life and career of John Wayne Parr is in the works and it's titled John Wayne Parr: Blessed With Venom. The first trailer has come out and from what we can see, this documentary is a must-watch. It doesn't have a release date yet but it is set to come out this year. If you want, read the full description:

“John Wayne Parr: Blessed With Venom” is a feature length documentary chronicling the life and career of Australian Muay Thai superstar and 7 times World Champion, John Wayne Parr. The film provides an intimate insight into Parr’s early years in Thailand where he endured rigorous training in primitive conditions, to the heights of awe-inspiring accomplishments all over the planet. We also get to see a very personal side to the Gunslinger as a husband and father of two. The true John Wayne Parr is revealed here. Champion, devoted family man and all round nice guy - a genuine hero with infinite courage to his legion of fans, respected by his opponents and dearly loved by his friends and family.

The documentary will also examine seminal fights in Parr’s career. From his bloody contests with Thai marvel Orono, which is considered the making of the Gunslinger’s legend, to his contemporary battles with Mike Zambidis, Lamsongkram and the three, all out wars with superstar Yodsanklai Fairtex. We bear witness as Parr comes back from 2 losses to ultimately defeating Yodsanklai in Melbourne – a blockbuster encounter between two giants of the sport – two modern day gladiators doing what they do best – trading bone crunching blows in the brutal world of Muay Thai Boxing.
