MUAYTHAI ROYALTY DESCEND ON WORLD SIAM STADIUM
Friday, September 18, 2020: The team at R1UFA, led by Ton Sakchai, have joined forces with the might of Kiatpetch promotions for what has the makings of a sensational show at Bangkok's World Siam Stadium on Monday the 5th of October.
The Showpiece Bout
The era of Buakaw is done and dusted as the Internatioanl face of MuayThai, there is a new shinning light in town, a new face of the sport on the global market and that is none other than Rodtang Jitmuangnon. His fighting style is angry and and sane at the same time. His fighting persona is one that aficioandos and casuals alike are attracted too....the era of Rodtang is here and now.
But, there is a but. While he is shinning and helping make the sport more popular aboard, he still has to face off against the aristocracy of the sport on the elite fight circuit in Thailand. One of those eminant stars is the classy Gaonar PK Saenchai, who at 30-years old, has matured like the finest of fine wines as he is currently a strong candidate for the proverbial pound4pound King's throne.
The last time these two met was at the famed Rajadamnern Stadium back in February of this year in a contest where Gaonar was one step ahead of Rodtang throughout the pulsating battle. The hotly-anticipated rematch is finally set. What a sensatioanl fight and show for the people at World Siam Stadium to officially open the stadium (located in the LadPrao distrcit of Bangkok) to the world.
The Eagerly Awaited Matchup
A fight which has been years in the making will finally - and thankfully - happen when the current Lumpinee Stadium super-bantamweight champion, Prajanchai, from PK Saenchai gym faces off against Yothin from FA Group gym in a matchup which will see Yothin have a slight advantage as the PK Saenchai team agreed to give away a 1.5 pound weight handicap. Prajanchai will be allowed a max wiehgt of 122 Lbs, with Yothin being alowed to hit the scales at 123.5 pounds.
Channel7 Stars collide
Fresh off winning the coveted Channel7 Stadium bantamweight title, Suasat Paedminburi will clash with fellow Channel7 Stadium alumni, Ekaluk Sor Samangarment, in an intriging matchup set at 120 pounds. Ekaluk, may will remember is a former winner of the prestigious Channel7 Stadium Tiger Cement tournament.
Battle of Super-bantamweights
This one. This one. Yes I am super excited for this mathcup between two of the coutries finest talents at 122 pounds. Ok, Prajanchai is the best 122lber, but these two are up with the elite, Saoaek is the current Rajadamnern Stadium super-bantamweight champion. He is also on hot winnnign streak - 7 wins in a row.
Ronachai for part is coming off two big victories agaisnt Kompetch and Chailar at Channel7 Stadium. This one is setup nicely to possibly steal the 'fight of the night' accolade.
