Sam A Outpoints Petchphanomrung, Tingtong Outlasts Ponsaneh at Lumpini Stadium

After Petchphanomrung's spectacular knock out over veteran Tong last month he was fast tracked into a shot at Thailand's most dominant fighter, Sam A. Petchphanomrung is only 16 years old and looks set to be one of the satrs of the future but he showed that his time might come sooner or later by putting up an excellent fight against Sam A.

Sam A has looked pretty comfortable ever since the controversial draw with Kongsak and is slowly but steadily running out of credible opponents. He started out as a five to three favourite against Petchphanomrung but the teenager looked very bright in the opening two rounds, catching a couple of Sam A's legendary southpaw left kicks and dumping him on the ground.

Sam A looked a little stronger in round three but while both men sat on their stools the odds dropped to three to two, which reflected Petchphanomrung's suprisingly good showing. The young pretender could have won the fight but made a fatal error in round four when he caught a leg kick and attempted to sweep but lost his balance and slipped to his knees.

It was a turning point in the fight and Sam A never looked back, comsolidating his lead by pressing forward, landing a few body kicks and being more active in the clinch. Petchphanomrung demonstrated with this performance that one day the time will probably come when he overtakes Sam A, but Thailand's number one fighter showed that he isn't prepare to hand over his mantle anytime soon.

Earlier in the night the always aggressive Ponsaneh took on Ting Tong. He started strong, as per normal, but Ting Tong was able to hold his own and utilized his jab to good effect, as well as landing repeated leg kicks to Ponsaneh's lead leg. Ponsaneh was able to get off with a couple of quickfire combinations in the opnening round but Ting Tong had a few moments of his own, landing some sharp punches.

Round two saw much of the same as Ponsaneh backed Ting Tong up but was unable to getr past his opponent's defence as Ting Tong kept a tight guard and countered effectively. In round three Ting Tong started to move ahead, landing some solid kicks to the body and backing Ponsaneh up for the first time in the fight.

Ponsaneh got on the front foot again in round four and it appeared that he might have enough in the tank to finish the fight strong but he faded badly towards the end of the round whereas Ting Tong finished strongly, moving forwards constantly in round five and landing lots of knees in the clinch to take a decision win. Afterwards both men received a trophy for fight of the night although Ting Tong was barely able to get into the ring to receive his award, a legacy of Ponsaneh's brutal leg kicks.

In other results Palangtip scored a vicious round two knock out over Rungpetch, landing a close range elbow followed by a solid straight knee. Dechnaroung showed off some fluid combinations to outpoint Yodthuanthong and Wanchai came up short against Superlek, droppng a decision.

Buakaw vs. Fabio Pinca Available On Internet PPV, March 17

Usually for smaller events that aren't the big boys of kickfighting organizations, there's not a way to watch and we often have to rely on Youtube videos after the fights. La Nuit Des Titans on March 17 , however, is offering a live internet PPV of their event.

The event is headlined by two time K-1 MAX World Grand Prix Champion, Buakaw Por. Pramuk who faces France's Fabio Pinca, one of the top Muay Thai fighters outside of Thailand. The fight is under full Muay Thai rules and what's even more interesting is for the first time in a while, Buakaw is going lower in weight than 70kg. Buakaw has been fighting at 70kg for a very long time now, but this fight is scheduled to be at 68kg. The weight limit is in place because of Pinca, who usually fights at 67kg.

Pinca is no stranger to facing Thais, as this will be the third Thai he's fought in a row. He lost to Kem Sitsongpeenong in the Thai Fight finals on December 18 but fought Saenchai on January 21 at Yokkao Extreme in Italy. Pinca came away with a very controversial decision victory over the much smaller Saenchai. Buakaw is bigger than Pinca and probably the biggest fighter that he's ever fought. Buakaw is coming off a win against Dzhabar Askerov also at Yokkao Extreme, after a win a month before against Frank Giorgio, also at the Thai Fight finals.

Buakaw's stablemate Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk is also on the card and he takes on Ayoub El Khaidar. Not to be confused with the much heavier Pajonsuk that fought in It's Showtime and K-1, Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk has been fighting more internationally as of late, and much higher in weight than usual. His normal weight is 118lbs (53.5kg) but his recent fight against Karim Bennoui was contested at 60kg and ended up in a draw. Pajonsuk then actually fought a week later against KENJI at RISE 86 in Japan, at 55kg, dropping a decision because of point deductions. This fight is at 60kg.

Rounding out the announced portion of the card, there's a four man, one night tournament taking place under full Muay Thai rules at 72.5kg. The participants are Mickael Piscitello, Fares Bechar, Bird Kham and Super-X Por. Phetnumchai.

To order the PPV, all you simply need to do is go to live.muaythaitv.com and select one of the options that are available to be paid by credit card or Paypal. You'll need a Facebook or MuayThaiTV account to do so. The price is 25% if you order it early now, at only $9.90 US/7.50 Euros.

Thai Fights and Thailand vs Challenger have both enjoyed some success in transplanting fighters from the Bangkok stadiums and putting then in for events which they hope will have more of a mainstream appeal. BEC Tero is an entertainment conglomerate best known for owning a football club and now appear to have decided to commit some of their valuable resources towards the sport of Muay Thai.

WBC representative Patrick Cusick broke the news in his weekly column in the Bangkok Post which you can read here
