This Friday Lumpini Stadium will host the biggest Muay Thai show of the year thus far. The card features some of the best Muay Thai fighters in the world, and a handful of titles will be on the line. There are four fights on the card that should get any fight fan excited.

The first being 2002 fighter of the year Singdam Kiatmoo9 vs. Petchboonchu F.A Group who was the 2008 fighter of the year runner up. This fight will be for the World Muay Thai Council Lightweight Championship. Petchboonchu is a very limited fighter, but he is great at what he knows, and that is moving forward on his opponent to tie them up and throw knees to the body. Singdam is a more well rounded fighter, but his beat weapon is his right kick to the body. The type of fighters who give Singdam the most trouble are fighters who move forward, and throw kicks and punches. Petchboonchu does not do that. Singdam should be able to land his kicks, and when it does go to the clinch he'll be good enough to land his share of knee's, and get out without taking too many shots. This bout has decision written all over it, and the more well rounded fighter Singdam Kiatmoo9 will take home the points wins. 

The next fight is for Lumpini's Super Bantamweight championship. Thong Puideenaidee takes on Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym, who is known for taking on the name Sam-A Thor. Ratonakiat in the past. Thong is a very talented fighter, but sometimes leaves you scratching your head, meaning he can be inconsistent. It's not good to be inconsistent against a fighter like Sam-A, who is the epitome of consistency. Either Thong puts it all together and takes the wins via points in a close fight, or Sam-A does his thing and takes home a a late stoppage or a clear cut decision win. Smart bet would be Sam-A on points. 

In the co main event you have Sagetdao Petpaiyathai vs. Saenchai Sinbimuaythai. This is for Sagetdao's Lumpini LW title. These guys have met in the past on several occasions with each taking wins from the other. I'd normally favor Saenchai to take this fight even though he will be the smaller fighter, but there are some questions about his health. He was scheduled to fight last month against Petchboonchu F.A Group but had to pull out due to illness. Also there are reports that one of his knee's is in bad shape. If he's not close to 100% in this fight he will lose a decision. Saenchai will likely be the betting favorite, but I'd put my money on Sagetdao to take the mild upset. 

The main event pits current fighter of the year Kongsak Sitboonmee vs. 2005 fighter of the year, Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym, who recently switched from his more well known name of Nong-O Sit Or. This is for Nong-O's Lumpini Super Featherweight strap. It is about as close of a fight as you could ask for. Nong-O has lost 4 in a row, but all of those losses were close, or highly controversial. Kongsak on the other hand hasn't lost in well over a year, with his most recent bout being a controversial draw against Sam-A. Both of these fighters are highly skilled, and have very little weakness. If I had to give the edge to one of them it would be Kongsak based on his ability to not let other fighters dictate the fight. If he delivers one of his elbow barrages he can stop Nong-O and his questionable chin. If not, this will go 5 competitive rounds. 55/45 edge to Kongsak, but either way, this should be a master class display of Muay Thai.

I feel like Danyo Ilunga came out of nowhere in March at It's Showtime when he fought Wendell Roche for the It's Showtime 95MAX Championship. Of course, Ilunga didn't come out of nowhere, as he has been fighting for years, known as a protege of Remy Bonjasky. The truth of the matter is, Ilunga is 36 - 4, with a whopping 32 KOs under his belt already. The absolute clinic he put on against veteran fighter Wendell Roche should speak volumes of just how much talent he has. On June 11th he will fight again, this time defending his It's Showtime 95MAX Championship against Nenad Pagonis at It's Showtime: Warsaw. If you have only seen the Roche fight, do yourself a favor and watch this highlight video of Ilunga's 2010.

On June 24th on HDnet, the latest installment of the Voice Versus will debut, this time Michael Schiavello interviews K-1 and It's Showtime superstar kickboxer, Badr Hari. Badr Hari has been the focus of a lot of controversy over the past few years, but is still one of the characters in the kickboxing world that sticks out the most and garners the most attention worldwide. Schiavello usually keeps a more playful approach to his interviews, looking back on the positives of each fighter or entertainer's careers, but with Badr Hari it is impossible to ignore.

More details have arisen about It's Showtime's venture into Japan. As you may or may not know, It's Showtime announced that they would be going into Japan, starting off with countdown events until It's Showtime Japan debuts next year. This will be the first countdown event and It's Showtime is co-promoting with Stand up JAPAN! to bring REBELS X It's Showtime on July 18. Giorgio Petrosyan vs. HINATA was previously announced for the main event of the show.

Nightmare of Battle is reporting that now Mosab Amrani vs. Chi Bin Lim has been added to the card and will serve as an It's Showtime 65MAX World Title number one contender fight. This fight will also serve as the co-main event. Amrani is coming off of a loss to Houcine Bennoui last month for It's Showtime while Chi Bin Lim has won 4 fights in a row, although he hasn't been that active. The current It's Showtime 65MAX World Champion is Orono Wor Petchpun. Orono hasn't fought in a year, since he last defended his title. It's a good move by It's Showtime, as they've been trying to move towards keeping their champions and divisions active.

More fight card announcements should be on their way, as the event is just under a month and a half away. Be on the lookout here on Liverkick.com and also on Nightmare of Battle.

I'm not even sure if there is any other way to say this; Rob Kaman is one of the few living legends in the sport of kickboxing that deserves to be revered. Rob Kaman turns 51 years old today, and shows no signs of stopping as he is still training fighters to this day. Recently he has trained Jake Shields and Mark "Fightshark" Miller. Catch this highlight reel below, courtesy of Fight Game and make a toast to Mr. Lowkick.
