John Wayne Parr's Illustrated Muay Thai Story

JWPIf you are like me, you are upset that John Wayne Parr's storied career is finally coming to an end. We trust him when he says that age is starting to catch up to him and that it has become increasingly difficult for him to properly train for fights and that his reaction time has slowed down. To be fair, we'd rather he retire with his wits and can enjoy his time with his family and continue training other fighters than worry about his mental health and well-being. It is always nice to see a fighter understand when it is time to hang up the gloves.

JWP has released this pretty awesome story of his muay thai life, including photographs, and you can read it here, in PDF form. This e-book is something you can quickly transfer to your mythical "third device" like an iPad or tablet, or even a Kindle.

So go ahead and click here to read it, download it, do what you want with it, and reflect upon the career of a living legend.

Saenchai to Fight Liam Harrison for the Third Time in Bangkok on July 28th

Saenchai Sor Kingstar and Liam Harrison have fought twice already with the Thai fighter winning a decision on both occassions and they are set to meet for the third and possibly final time in Bangkok on July 28th. The venue has yet to be confirmed but the show will be promoted by Thakoon Pongsupha.

Saenchai suffered back to back losses for the first time in his career recently when he was beaten by Saketdao Petpayathai at Lumpini Stadium in December and then found himself on the wrong side of an extremely dubious decision after a three round fight with Fabio Pinca in Italy in January.

He confounded the critics by comfortably defeating Saketdao in a dominant display at Lumpini Stadium in March and his next assignment will be against Peneak Sitnumnoi there on July 8th. Harrison also received a raw deal from Italian judges losing a split decision to Mohamed Khamal in the Muay Thai Premier League last August although be bounced back to stop Andrei Kulebin with leg kicks in the third round of their fight in Manchester in March.

After facing each other twice in England this will be the first time that Saenchai and Harrison have fought in Thailand. The fight is set for 64 kgs which will be a relief for the Thai fighter who needs to get down to 58 kgs for his fight with Peneak.

Kongsak Sitbonmee, Pakorn Sakyotin Victorious at Big Rajadamnern Show

Kongsak Sitbonmee and Pakorn Sakyotin were the main winners at the Sor Sommai show at Rajadamnern Stadium. The main event was between Konssak and Petcheak Kiatyongut with Petcheak starting the stronger, almost putting the 2011 fighter of the year down for the count with a series of elbows and uppercuts in the second round.

Despite appearing on unsteady legs and suffering a cut from the elbow which started the onslaught Kongsak was able to recover and finish the round strongly. From that point on he was firmly in control, firing in body kicks from the southpaw stance and continually being the aggressor to take a comfortable decision win.

In the co-main event Konsak's old rival Pakorn, who will be fighting Saenchai Sor PK SaenchaiGym in Scotland later this year took on Monkonchai Petchsuphaphun. The first two rounds were uneventful but in round three Pakorn landed a perfectly timed elbow which put Monkonchai down for the count.

There was no way back for Monkonchai who lost his footing a couple of times in the fourth as Parkorn did a godo job of tying him up in the clinch and making him miss when he tried to press forward.

At the start of the night Prajanchay Por.Petnumtong won the vacant Rajadamnern flyweight title with a decision win over Methee Kiatpratoom while Kengsiam Nor Sriphung stopped Phudpadnoi Muangsima in the second round of their fight putting him down twice with a series of elbows and uppercuts, the second knock down forcing the referee to step in and stop the fight.

The next big show at Rajadamnern is on May 30th when Nong O Gaigandeao fights Petboonchu FA Group and F16 Rajanon rematches Yodtuontong Petchyindee.

Full results:

Prajantchai Por Petnamthong defeated Methi Kiatprathum by decision

 Kengsiam Nor Sriphung defeated Pudpadnoi Muangsima by TKO

Dang Sor Ploenchit defeated Petu-thong Or Kwanmuang by decision

Khunsuklek Or Kwanmuang defeated Pajonsuk Por Pramuk by decision

Simon vs. Joe Schilling II Video

Simon Marcus and Joe Schilling met for a second time in the ring yesterday, after their "controversial" first fight, if you would call it that. In the first fight, Simon Marcus scored a dump that rocked Joe Schilling and then proceeded to finish him off after that. The controversy stems from the legality of the technique that Marcus used to dump Schilling.

Nevertheless, everyone wanted a rematch and that's what we got. This one went all five rounds and it was an action-packed fight. I won't spoil the result for you if you don't know it, so here's the video.

Saketdaw got well beaten by Saenchai in his most recent Lumpini outing but defeated Petboonchu in Surat Thani recently and will be returning to Bangkok to take on Nong-O who won the last time they fought in January 2011.

Joe Schilling Talks Return Bout Against Simon Marcus

There is a lot of talk about K-1 returning to the United States and making a more concerted effort to blow up here, but there is already a decent-sized following for the world of kick fighting here in the United States revolving around the Muay Thai scene. Well, I should say scenes, as there seems to be a bit of an "East Coast vs. West Coast" vibe going on with how regional it can be. Lion Fights in Las Vegas is without a doubt one of the biggest in the West Coast and books some of the biggest fighters available. The biggest, most talked about fight in US Muay Thai would have to be Joe Schilling vs. Simon Marcus, who will square off for a second time on May 12th in Las Vegas. The first bout ended after Marcus hit a sweep that knocked Schilling loopy, who then stumbled up and was knocked down by a punch that ended the fight.

Schilling and his friends and training partners were quick to take to the internet, arguing that it was an illegal sweep, while Marcus and his fans were quick to note that it was a legal move. Message boards were filled with people from both sides arguing back and forth and some muay thai experts claiming it was legal and others saying it was not. The only logical solution was a rematch, and it was quickly granted. Schilling sits down with Jeff Dojillo to discuss the fight as well as the new fight camp of sorts that Schilling, Kevin Ross, Chaz Mulkey, Miriam Nakamoto and others are involved with, "Can't Stop Crazy."

Peneak Sitnumnoi Defeats Sam A, Singdam and Ting Tong Score Wins At Lumpini

Peneak Sitnumnoi beat Sam A to win the Featherweight championships of both Lumpini and Thailand, putting him down for the count in round four on route to a dominant decision victory. Sam A had not lost a fight for well over a year and is widely regarded as the best pound for pound figther in the country at present but he was upstaged by the 22 year old.

Peneak, who trains at Sing Patong in Phuket, has a significant height advantage which Sam A struggled to get to grips with in the early rounds. The star man from the Petyindee stable was hanging in there until he was hit with a perfectly executed elbow in the fourth round which saw him take a count and even though he beat it he was left in need of a knock out.

To his credit Sam A pressed forward and tried to take the fight to his opponent with punches and elbows but Peneak was able to pick him off at will, landing a series of solid headkicks and another elbow which opened up an enormous gash on Sam A's forehead, to go with the cut he had already collected under his right eye.

After such an impressive win a fight with Saenchai seems like an obvious option for Peneak. This matchup had originally been set to take place earler this year but was cancelled amidst a general consensus that Peneak was not ready for such a test, after such a convincing win over Sam A this is an opinion which will probably be rapidly revised.

In the co main event Sam A's Petyindee team mate Nong O lost a razor thin decision to Singdam. It was the eighth time the two had met and Singdam levelled the score at four wins apiece with this victory. Nong O took round three but Singdam battled back to take the fourth and a lack of activity in the final round would ultimately cost Nong O the win, although there were many at ringside who would have given the decision the other way.

Ting Tong registered a win over the seasoned veteran Tong while F16's decline continues after he was convincingly beaten by another Petchyindee fighter, Yodthuanthong, who was a late replacement for Dejnarong. Saenchai's fight with Wanchalerm was cancelled after Wanchalerm suffered an ankle injury earlier in the week.

With this win Peneak overtakes Sam A as the favourite to win the prestigious Sports Writer's Fighter of the Year award which will be announced imminently.

PTT & Liverkick present "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay" Episode 2!

From Phuket Top Team, presented by Liverkick.com!

Boyd from PTT is nothing if not enterprising. Muay Thai documentaries are always anticipated and appreciated; remember the mild furore when the Lumpinee one was announced and its trailers released? A fantastic way of promoting oneself whilst managing to entertain a legion of Muay Thai doco hungry fight fans.

This documentary is somewhat different from the norm, being released in multiple parts. It will follow several fighters, namely "Lucky", a former Rajadamnern and Lumpinee stadium fighter who suffered a nasty arm break one year ago and suffered a subsequent forced exile from the ring; Yoduman, a young boy of 13, with less than three months Muay Thai training but who has already fought three times - twice in Bangla Stadium - and has looked like a composed veteran in the process; Malik, a cocky 19yr old American Nak Muay with a Bangla Stadium title to his name, among other featured stars of the show.

Within the first year of existence, PTT has built up a large online presence through twitter and youtube videos, and has attracted top notch fighters to train there such as Roger Huerta, Mike Swick, Jorge Masvidal, Andrew Leone, and a handful of notable Muay Thai fighters and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts. Now, the latest video trend is not an instructional, a seminar or even one of the boy's fights from Bangla Stadium... it is a documentary about Muay Thai from the perspective of several fighters from the camp, entitled "8 Limbs: Life of a Nak Muay".

Here is episode 2:

Stay tuned to liverkick for the next episode of this ongoing documentary series, and follow @PhuketTopTeam on twitter.
