Thursday, August 8th: Flashback to Friday the 10th of February, 2012 — at the old Lumpinee stadium — 22-year old Damien Alamos from France was crowned super-lightweight champion of the Mecca of MuayThai, when he dethroned the then champion, Kongfah AooDonMuang, in a display which this author will fondly remember for a long, long time to come!
The Here And Now:
It’s August 2018 and the ‘White Lion’ is back: this time not as an elite fighter, but to team up with his mentor Numnoi Singpatong to become a co-promoter at the new Lumpinee stadium which commences on Tuesday the 28th of August.
For their first joint venture they have amassed a fantastic lineup of bonafide elite MuayThai stars from the Kingdom of Thailand and from around the world to showcase their upper-eschelon fighting skills.
The main event is one of mega proportions as current Channel7 stadium super-lightweight champion, Chujaroen Danrunsarakam, will square off against former Thailand and Channel7 champion, Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon.
Yodpanomrung is fresh off a points victory over MuayThai superstar Sangmanee AumkatongChiangMai, whilst Chujaroen defeated in his most recent foray into the ring.
The prelude to the main event will feature current Lumpinee stadium welterweight chanpion, Rafi Bohic, taking on Thailand’s Phonaek from Mor Phuwanna gym in a non-title fight set at 148Lbs.
Phonaek defeated Australia’s Chadd Collins in his most recent contest, whilst Rafi gained a magnificent knockout victory over Taksila Chor Haypayak on last week’s Ch3 Sunday show at the Blue Arena.
Another mouth-watering match-up for the show will witness current Channel7 stadium bantamweight champion, Jakdao from Paedminburi gym, face off against rising star Pompetch Sitnumnoi for the vacant Lumpinee Stadium bantamweight title — the belt was voluntarily vacated by SuperJeng Por Pinnapat as he had moved up to fight at super-bantamweight.
Italian fighter Matthias Cassarino, currently ranked #7 in the Lumpinee stadium welterweight rankings will clash with the formidable Disellek MUDen in what has the makings of bloody battle — Cassarino was originally due to fight Paedsanlek Rachanon.
Petchpalin SitNumnoi will take on Sor-Jor Vichitpidrew gym fighter Priewpak in another exciting match-up
If you are are lucky enough to be visiting the kingdoms capital city in or around the 28th of August do not hesitate to come witness what promises to be a mesmerizing night of elite MuayThai action.
