Petyindee Promotions Event This Friday

 

This Friday Petyindee boxing promotions will put together a big show at Lumpinee Stadium with the main event being a rematch fight when Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym takes on F16 Rajanont. The two met in July where F16 took the points win. Since then Nong-O has won four in a row with his last being a referee stoppage over top 5 contender Sitisak Siangsimaewgym. F16 on the other hand lost controversially to one of the hottest fighters in the sport, Kongsak Sitboonmee. But just a month later the two fought again and this time F16 scored multiple knockdowns to win the fight by a wide margin, and took home the Lumpinee super featherweight championship. With both fighters looking impressive since the last meeting, and the winner taking home an additional 10% of the 2 million baht (60 thousand US dollars) side bet between the two gyms this should be an action packed fight. 

Also on the card Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym will once again take on Tingtong Chor. KoyuhaIsuzu. They've fought once this year and Sam-A beat him on points. This time the winner will take home a new Toyota pickup truck.

Eight weight division champion Petchboonchu FA Group will try to make it 3 wins in 5 months over 2002 fighter of the year Singdam Kiatmuu9. Singdam is coming off a loss to Sagetdao Petpaiyathai, and Petchboonchu coming off a loss to Saenchai Sinbimuaythai. This fight is important for Singdam to show he's still got it, and that age hasn't caught up to him.

Palangtip Nor. Sripung vs. Chartshynoi Sor. Prasobshok will have a 1 million dollar side bet between gyms. Palangtip will surely be looking for a fight with Sam-A if he were to win as he is coming into this with 2 KO's in the last 6 weeks. One of those men he KO'd was Thailand's premier brawler and fan favorite Ponsaneh Sitmonchai. Since taking a 7 month break from the sport Ponsaneh has fought just one time and that resulted in a devastating elbow knockout to the aforementioned Palangtip. He will now look to get on the winning side when he goes up against Yuttachai Kiatpatarapan at 124 pounds, a weight that suits him well. 

In other notable action Phetmorakot Wor. Sungprapai will look to continue his quick ascension up the ranks when he takes on the slick Panomrunglek Kiatmuu9. Wanchai Sor. Kitisak takes on Khunsuek P.N Gym, and Ekmongkol Kaiyanghadaogym vs. Dejsakda Wor. Sungprapai rounds out the card.

Mike Zambidis Picks Up A Win In Cyprus

Today in Cyprus, Mike Zambidis made his returned to the ring for the first time since getting stopped by John Wayne Parr in May.

Zambidis took on Russian fighter Danila Utenkov and won a three round decision. There's not much detail surrounding the fight yet and it was quite a surprise to see that Zambidis was fighting today. There was absolutely nothing about this fight on the internet before today. On Zambidis' Facebook page, there is a post that says Danila Utenkov got his arm broken in the fight.

In my opinion, it was a good move for Zambidis to a fight in, as he will be facing Batu Khasikov in Russia on November 5th. Khasikov beat Albert Kraus in April and should be a tough test for Zambidis. A win in that fight for Zambidis would get him rolling again. He was on somewhat of a tear earlier in the year up until the loss to John Wayne Parr. A win for Khasikov would really get his name out there and open up more opportunities.

UFC on Versus 6's Pat Barry Isn't Worried About Kickboxing's Future, Nor Should You

The recent news of Badr Hari's departure from the Kickboxing world into the world of Boxing has shaken up many kickboxing fans, as do higher level fighters like Cosmo Alexandre making his MMA debut tomorrow and guys like Tyrone Spong and Gokhan Saki looking into other combat sports to make a possible home as well. I can understand it, but it feels like an alarmist reaction to a sport that is finally getting its sea legs without K-1 to prop it up.

In a recent interview with Luke Thomas of MMANation, Pat Barry not only discussed his upcoming fight this weekend for the UFC, but also discussed the current state of Kickboxing as well. Pat Barry echoes all of the thoughts that many Kickboxing fans believe; someone needs to put some serious money into Kickboxing in the United States and promote it right and it would do well. Fans love to see fighters knock each other around, yet Kickboxing has a rather meager following in the US. Pat does not see Kickboxing dying any time soon, nor does he see a few fighters heading to other combat sports as a serious detriment.

Phuket Top Team's Cyrus Washington Interview

PTTAs we announced on Twitter a while back, we've struck up a partnership with Phuket Top Team in Thailand. PTT is is a breath of fresh air in the already crowded gym culture of Thailand. In Thailand obviously Thai Boxing/Muay Thai is at the heart of why fighters will go to Thailand to train, and if you are headed there to train in Muay Thai there are endless amounts of options. The big difference between PTT and most of those gyms is that there is not only a great Muay Thai program, but a focus on Mixed Martial Arts as well. PTT is an all-purpose gym in Thailand that does so much right that it is hard to argue against heading there to train.

On top of that, the instructors and owners are all extremely passionate about combat sports, from Muay Thai to Kickboxing to MMA and have dedicate their lives to it. Of course, the island of Phuket itself is extremely beautiful and not a hard place to find yourself relaxing after a tough workout.

Cyrus Washington is a serious up-and-comer in the Muay Thai and Kickboxing world who is representing Phuket Top Team on Contender Muay Thai, watch this interview as he discusses the show and a lot more.
