Every December Lumpinee Stadium celebrates its birthday with a big card and while the location might have recently changed the tradition remains with a show featuring no fewer than five title fights booked for next month.
The Krekkrai + Kiatpetch Promotions show on December 9th will see Pakorn PKSaenchaiGym take on Parnphet Kiatjaroenchai in defence of the 135 lbs Lumpinee belt he won by beating Singdam Kiatmoo9 at the grand opening of the stadium’s new location on Ram Intra Road in February.
The challenger is coming off a win over Kongsak PKSaenchaiGym, who trains at the same camp as Pakorn in Bangkok, and Parnphet has also beaten Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnont this year and will be looking to claim a title in one of Muay Thai’s most competitive divisions.
Saketdao Petpayathai, who beat Parnphet earlier this year, was scheduled to take on Kongsak but has been pulled from the card to be replaced by his Kiatpetch team mate Sittisak who faces the former ‘Fighter of the Year’ in a 133 lbs non title bout.
MuangThai Sor Boongium is coming off a fourth round KO win over Tuanpae ThebestUdon and will be back in action to take on another former ‘Fighter of the Year’, Peneak Sitnumnoi, who will be looking to work his way back up the rankings in the lightweight division.
The ten fight card also features reigning ‘Fighter of the Year’ Panpayak Jitmuangnongym who will put his Lumpinee 115 lbs title on the line against Prachanchay PK Saenchaigym while Ongree Sor Decapan and Wanchalong Sitsornong will also be defending stadium titles, against Ronachai Santi-Ubon and Gengkla Por Pekko respectively.
Judging from the flyer the fight between reigning Lumpinee 112 lbs champion Saknarinnoi Or.Auansuwan and Sarawute Phitphakpahadang will be a non title bout although this could easily be an oversight.
