Fabio Pinca vs. Tayfun Ozcan Added To Time Fight 2 On October 6

The Time Fight 2 card in Tours, France on October 6 has undergone a lot of changes in the past month, but overall the card is still looking solid. Originally the card was supposed to have a big fight between Lumpinee champion Damien Alamos and Houcine Bennoui in a rematch, with Bennoui having won the first fight. That fight, however, got cancelled because of Alamos' commitment to a fight with Diesellek Aoodonmuang next month.

In place of that fight, another one of the best non-Thai Muay Thai fighters, Fabio Pinca was added to the card. Pinca will fight the Dutch up and comer Tayfun Ozcan at 67kg.

Ozcan usually fights at 70kg but Pinca will still be his toughest fight to date, especially being that this fight is under full Muay Thai rules. Ozcan is a Dutch style kickboxer while Pinca is a Muay Thai fighter through and through.

Pinca comes off a loss to Saiyok Pumphanmuang at Thai Fight on September 19 in Lyon, France while Ozcan also just fought, on September 22 where he stopped Hicham Boubkari in the second round.

A Look Back at Battle of the PRO's From Brooklyn on Sept. 13th

Story by R. Choi

Photos by Bauzen

On Thursday, September 13th, eight professional Muay Thai fighters gathered at the Renzo Gracie Academy in Brooklyn to fight in a one-night “Battle of the PRO’s” tournament.  The event, which took place in the impressive new facility and was elegant enough to require a corporate casual dress code (sorry, no TapouT gear allowed) nevertheless delivered a great night of fights with plenty of action and several knockouts.

The first round of fights featured Rafael Machado of Gold Team (Newark, NJ) defeating Nate Chambers of Hyena Muay Thai (Las Vegas, NV) via unanimous decision, Villi Bello (Ardon’s Sweet Science, NY) advancing after the fight was ruled a no contest in the first round due to a questionable groin shot to Mervin Rodriguez (Pellegrino MMA, Belmar NJ), Troy Sheridan of Team Ultimate (Toronto, Canada) defeating the older and very experienced Peter Kaljevic by unanimous decision, and Deshawn Robinson (America’s Finest Kickboxing, NJ) overcoming a very aggressive Turan Hasanov (Fight Factory, NY) two minutes and 42 seconds into the second round with a devastating knockout by knee that left him unable to continue.


An intermission and the only amateur bout of the night showed why clinch is essential in Muay Thai, as Jason Sheena (Workshop Muay Thai, NY) won a unanimous decision against Daniel Cronin (Renzo Gracie, NY). This also seemed to set the tone for the first fight in the semi-finals, which was also decided in the clinch with Villi Bello winning by TKO 1 minute and 25 seconds into the second round after landing several vicious knees on his opponent, Rafael Machado. Afterwards, Troy Sheridan and Deshawn Robinson faced off in a very exciting bout that had a flurry of back and forth exchanges in the first round.  Troy looked rocked early but he still managed to send Deshawn crashing through the ropes onto the judge’s table and was not only able to make a full recovery, but also scored an impressive KO at 2 minutes and 46 seconds with a right hook that sent Deshawn’s mouthguard flying.

The final fight pitted Troy Sheridan against Villi Bello.  Bello was very aggressive, but had problems with the longer reach of Sheridan. Bello tried changing levels and kept up an aggressive pace, but Sheridan ultimately controlled the distance and and kept Bello from getting close with a nasty jab and low kick combination that had served him well all night.  In rounds two and three, Sheridan also added a high left kick to the mix and won the fight by unanimous decision, as well as the tournament.

Thai Fight Lyon: Saiyok, Aikpracha, Bennoui Win, Sudsakorn Loses

Thai Fight was back with another show today in Lyon, France and again it featured their usual crew of Thais with the likes of Saiyok Pumphanmuang, Singmanee Kaewsamrit, Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee and now Aikpracha Meenayothin all taking on French opponents.

The French opponents were no slouches however, as Saiyok drew Fabio Pinca, who is often regarded as the best non-Thai Muay Thai fighter. Pinca, as he usually is, was game but Saiyok was the clear winner thanks to his bursts of offense that not many opponents can match. This fight definitely needed five rounds.

Aikpracha Meenayothin once again fought internationally as he took on Yohan Lidon, a man much bigger than he is, with the fight taking place at almost 73kg. Aikpracha won the fight, but not after a tiny moment of trouble in the opening minute where it looked like he might've been wobbled. Unfortunately, the Thai TV signal cut out right after the fight started so we weren't able to see most of it. Accounts from France are saying that Aikpracha was fairly dominant and forced a count on Lidon, winning a decision.

Another fight we didn't get to see was Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee vs. Mickael Piscitello. Sudsakorn surprisingly lost the fight via stoppage due to a cut. Another cut stoppage on the card was Armin Pumphanmuang defeating Raphael Llodra, after Llodra was clearly ahead but got cut in the third round. We aren't done with the cuts yet, as Abdallah Mabel cut Super X on the right eyebrow and followed up by hurting the Thai with a series of downward elbows against the ropes, much like Armin did to Mabel last month, but this time it was Mabel with the referee stoppage win.

In a rematch of last month's highly contested decision, Houcine Bennoui got the win over Singmanee Kaewsamrit by decision (pictured), after some people had thought Bennoui won last month. Again, this is another decision which could've gone the other way.

Mickael Piscitello def. Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee via TKO (Cut) in Round 2.

Aikpracha Meenayothin def. Yohan Lidon by decision.
