Monday, September 9th: Last night in Zhangqiu, China, Superbon Banchamek put in a ‘silky’ performance to outshine and outgun Ayman Ayanesh and move into the final eight of the 2018 ‘Clash of Titans’ Kunlun tournament.
There was quite a lot of banter and conjecture in the buildup to this hotly anticipated contest: some were saying Superbon had not fully recovered from his leg injury, which forced the postponement of their original matchup, from last month, but the southern Thailand native proved otherwise with a controlled display of at times ‘poetic ring movement’ and clean crisp execution of strikes.
Ayman came into the contest with a game plan for victory but it was to be Superbon’s night as executed his own sublime game plan, and he had his hand raised in victory after all ringside judges were unanimous in awarding him the win.
Superbon joins Jonay Risco, Dzianis Zuev, Nordin Ben Moh, Davit Kiria, Vlad Tuinov, Marouan Toutouh and Feng Xingli in quarter finals of this year’s tournament.
In the night’s female last girl standing tournament, China’s Wang Cong was crowned the new Queen of Mulan after she defeated three opponents to win out the tournament: in the quarter finals she overcame British fighter Niamh Kinehan, she bested America’s Nili Block in the semifinal and conquered her compatriot Zhu Mengjia in the final.
