YOKKAO strikes 3 wins in 2 days in Thailand!
Within a space of 2 days, 3 young fighters from YOKKAO landed 3 respective victories in events held in Thailand.
First up, Manachai was up against former 2013 Rajadamnern champion, Kiatpetch Suanaharneekmai at the YOKKAO Next Generation event in Suraburi, northeast of Bangkok. Kiatpetch is by no means a walkover, having fought against many of the top names in Muay Thai, like Nong O, Kongsak PKSaenchaiGym and Petpanomrung Kiatmoo9.
The fight played out in typical ring fashion with both fighters studying the opponent in the first 2 rounds before erupting into a frenzied exchange in the third and fourth. Despite a tough competition, Manachai outscored Kiatpetch by landing a series of powerful strikes and another 2 sweeps in round 5 to bring home the win. Manachai will return to Suraburi for another YOKKAO Next Generation event on 18th August. Following which, he will travel to Hong Kong for YOKKAO 25 – 26 scheduled on 11th September.
Back in Bangkok, Erhan YOKKAOSaenchaiGym made his Lumpinee debut in a main event against Thai veteran fighter, Dab-Mhon Siharajshow. After a hard fought battle, Erhan emerged victorious a.d delighted to have his name added to the Lumpinee Stadium ranking list. A great achievement for any Muay Thai fighter! Together with Manachai, Erhan will also be flying to Hong Kong for YOKKAO 26 in his fight against Billy William from ATMA YOKKAO Training Center Hong Kong.
Scottish fighter, Spencer “The Body Snatcher” Brown rounded up the triple-win with his stunning performance at MX MUAY XTREME. Right from the outset, the 20 year-old Brown unleashed a hurricane of elbow strikes and body blows on his opponent, Peemai Por Kobkua. Peemai was visibly overwhelmed, falling onto the canvas in round 1 to add another KO win to Brown’s fight records. With an impressive streak of knockout wins, he is the youngest foreign fighter in YOKKAO history who will probably join the official YOKKAO Fight Team.
