Sam A Gaiyanghadaogym Fighting Penek Sitnumnoi in Big Lumpini Card on April 3rd

Sam-A is rapidly running out of suitable opponents in Thailand as his winning streak shows no sign of coming to an end. On April 3rd he will be headlining a huge card at Lumpini when he takes on Penek Sitnumnoi.

The last time they fought Sam-A won by knock out but he is moving up in weight and will be at a size disadvantage for this fight which has been set at 125 lbs. Penek is coming off a win over Wanchalerm while Sam-A outpointed Petpanomrung in his last outing in a fight which was closer than expected, although he did have to get down to 119 lbs.

Saketdai and Singdam are fighting again, these two seem to fight each other pretty regularly and they are always competitive contests while Wanchalerm takes on Petboonchu who is coming off a win over Jomthong at Rajadamnern in a fight which was reportedly not particularly entertaining.

Detkart is one of the rising starts of Muay Thai and recently beat Thelek and broke his nose with an elbow in the process. He will be taking on Wanchai in a match up which has all the ingredients for a figth of the night. Unless of course the rumoured rematch between Tingtong and Ponsaneh goes ahead on this date, Ponsanah is pretty much unrivalled when it comes to entertainment value.

Give Back To The Great Sakmongkol

Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke was not only one of the best Thai boxers who ever put on a pair of gloves, but more importantly to fans, he was one of the most exciting and toughest. From his classic battles with Jongsanan Fairtex which left me, and probably most people agape, to his unforgettable fight with Perry Ubeda, Sakmongkol has given us fans lasting memories. Unfortunately, being a Thai boxer, especially in Thailand, isn't exactly something you can get rich doing. Sakmongkol now resides in Denver Colorado teaching Muay Thai at Zingano BJJ, but he had to leave his family behind in order to come to America. Now fortunately he's in position where he can reunite with his loved ones, but help is needed. A fund has been set up by Mauricio Zingano, and all donations are greatly appreciated. Also, his gloves and shorts from his retirement fight last year against Cosmo Alexandre are up for auction with proceeds going directly to helping his family come to America, to be with there husband and father.

Por Pramuk Gym, the Tralfamadorians and Buakaw Por Pramuk's Indentured Servitude to You

Self worth is something that is hard to describe, especially in an oppressive environment with no end in sight to the abuse. Even worse is when the world is allowed to look in through a picture window and witness the horror that is a life in chains, only to look on with astonishment, without being able to directly interact. It was the same predicament that Billy Pilgrim found himself on Tralfamadore as a human exhibit in a zoo. Billy Pilgrim had the dignity of being unstuck in time and understanding the non-linear nature of the fourth dimension which is time, much like a Time Lord would.

Be it a symptom of post-traumatic stress or a true awakening, Slaughterhouse-Five protagonist Billy Pilgrim's Tralfamadore exhibition exposes how we, as a collective society, view the exceptional figures in the world. We view them as larger-than-life dolls, playthings that live out our fantasies like shadow play on the wall before bed time as a child. The tralfamadorians were hands off in their approach to enslaving Billy Pilgrim and locking him up with Montana Wildhack, where they copulated for their intergalactic onlookers and spawned a child. In a way, the existence of the tralfamadorians did not matter to the narrative Pilgrim spun.

Whether it was escapism, a protest against free will or a way to mentally write off infidelity, Buakaw Por Pramuk is not behind the glass window, us peering into his dysfunctional life with a beautiful porn actress birthing children like Billy Pilgrim was. Buakaw, like Pilgrim, was changed by the battle scars from war and society, with his inability to escape suffocating him into accepting a fate less fitting for someone of his stature. If you watch Kickboxing for Muay Thai, Buakaw Por Pramuk is a hero, a truly exceptional person whose fame and abilities are something to marvel at. Be it you kicking the pads at a gym with a poster of him on the wall or channeling his attitude and style into your mundane daily tasks, if you know Buakaw you know his influence.
