Thailand's undisputed number one MuayThai promoter, Mr. Songchai Ratanasuban, has once again put together an alluring fight card for June 7 at Rajadamnern stadium here in Bangkok
A fight that has been mooted for quite some time will finally come to fruition.
Two of Thailand's premier super flyweights (115lbs) will headline this show.
Wanchalong has long been a dominant force in this weight category, holding multiple titles from Channel 7 stadium and Lumpinee stadium. He was also involved a bit of recent controversy when certain influential individuals said there was no way he could beat Puenkon, Wanchalong responded in a way only Wanchalong could and was duly forced into a public apology for his actions. So, it's game on!
Puenkon on the other hand has shown his elected supremacy over the last 12-18 months cumulating in him winning being crowned the 115lb champion of Rajadamnern amongst many other accolades he picked up for the year, 2016 including Rajadamnern fighter of the year and also gaining the Sports Authority fighter of the year award.
How the gym who turned down the opportunity to buy Puenkon's contract for a measly B50,000 a few years back must be kicking themselves!
The prelude to the main event sees former multi-time Rajadamnern stadium champion, Prajanchai from PK Saenchai gym, a boxer who to this very day had a strong claim for the King of the of the super bantamweight division here in Thailand returns to action at Rajadamnern stadium — where he will do battle with Morakot Kaisamai. This bout sees Morakot get a one pound weight advantage.
Pakalek Tor Laksong, the older brother of Gingsanglek Tor Laksong will face off against the incredibly tough and rugged Tuan Kor Kampanat.
These two boxers are known for their aggressive styles, so this match-up should make for exciting action and both boxers know each other well from their two previous encounters. And of course Pakalek is a firm favorite of the gambling fraternity — due to his somewhat keen sense for 5th round comeback's. Will this battle be revenge or repeat?
Gingsanglek Tor Laksong, aka, The Boy Wonder, will fight the notoriously durable and highly experienced Kumandoi Sor Jitpakdee. Kumandoi is a former champion of Omnoi stadium and is currently ranked no.10 at Rajadamnern stadium.
Gingsanglek is fresh off an unchallenged win over Roycheng from Singmawin gym.
The show is also putting on a quite intriguing match-up, to say the least. Transgender boxer, NongRose, will be allowed to fight at the fabled stadium, where she will come up against the truly formidable and unforgiving Muay "War Horse" - that is SuaYai Chor Haypayak gym.
NongRose is coming off two recent victories at the now defunct Thai Rath Songchai weekly TV show — cumulating in NongRose winning the 115lb Thai Rath title.
SuaYai has a healthy reputation for scoring brutal knock-outs. Can he score one against the ladyboy with the monster knees?
We shall have to wait and see!
The two opening bouts of be night will see Kwandom face off against Samerknai at 122lbs and Suriyanlek will fight Kann at 124lbs.
All in all — this is another fine piece of match making by Songchai promotions and sets us up for an exhilarating action packed night of fights which will be broadcast live in HD, with multiple camera angles via: MuayThaixtream live . The live broadcast will start from the NongRose versus SuaYai fight.
