Penek Sitnumnoi and Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym met on May 4 in what was basically a fight to decide who would win the Sportswriters of Thailand Boxer of the Year Award. The fight was also for the vacant Lumpinee Stadium Featherweight Title, which Sam-A was moving up in weight for. Sam-A was on an eleven fight undefeated streak prior to this fight, which is incredibly hard to do in the major stadiums in Thailand, even with another fight at a higher weight than usual for him against Kongsak Sitboonmee, which ended in a draw. He had gone as low as 119 lbs in that streak, so he faced an uphill battle against the bigger Penek. In the end, Penek was too much for Sam-A, who put up a valiant effort. Check out the video of the full fight.

Jerome Le Banner's "Le Banner Series" kicked off with Act 1 this weekend, with Jerome Le Banner going to Geneva, Switzerland to take on Lithuanian Arnold Oborotov for a WKN title. It is not clear exactly which WKN title was up for grabs in this fight, as it has been listened as the WKN World Super Heavyweight Title as well as the WKN Kickboxing Oriental Super Heavyweight Championship. Regardless, the fight went to a draw after five rounds, with the younger Oborotov able to last the distance with the thirty nine year old JLB. While this is most likely not how JLB wanted to kick off his "series" in 2012, it was a good showing by both men.

The top two 70kg fighters in Australia are facing off on April 28 in a huge fight on the Australian fight scene. Moxon is the top 70kg K-1 rules fighter while Giorgi is the top 70kg fighter in Muay Thai. Steve Moxon in particular has big K-1 aspirations and while the 70kg Final 16 is already set for this year, I think by the time next year rolls around and K-1 gets back on track, they'll start to bring in some new faces. Moxon is one that I think has a good shot of getting into K-1 in the future.

Today he released a video of the lead up to his fight with Frank Giorgi, detailing his training and lifestyle. Check it out.

At this point, Bob Sapp fighting is clearly not a good idea. We've all discussed how over the years he has been smart with his money and how he has made a lot out of a little, but at this point it is clear that he can go no further in the fighting world. Winning a fight against even lesser competition seems to be far from his grasp. As a fighter, you simply cannot fix the inability to take a punch. We've seen this in recent, high profile cases like Brock Lesnar retiring from the UFC and returning to the WWE after a string of losses where as soon as he got hit he'd turtle up. This is where Bob Sapp is right now, and it is time for him to pack it in. His latest fight was against Rok Strucl and Sapp actually put forth some effort, rushing in like he was looking for the kill but did not, at all, do it with precision or power.

Last night was a big night for Buakaw, who not only fought for the first time in a long time outside of the Por. Pramuk Gym after a giant struggle with his former home camp. Buakaw still used the Por. Pramuk name for this fight, as he probably was required to in order to fight. This was his re-debut of sorts and it was an emotional affair. Included are the intros, full fight and post-fight speech.
