Yokkao 7 goes down tomorrow, February 19th at the Pattaya Boxing World Stadium featuring a huge main event between Saenchai vs. Victor Ngabe with a possible KO bonus tacked on if one man can finish the other. That means look for fireworks to get that KO bonus, with the same possibility in the co-main event of Suedam vs. Naimjon. We'll have results for you after the event has happened so stay tuned.
This past weekend in California the WCK promoted a big Muay Thai event which was aired on local television, once again proving that Southern California's Muay Thai scene has a lot of things figured out. The card featured many local fighters, some of which are local legends, with perhaps the biggest impact coming by the way of Zoila Frausto, former Bellator 115lbs Women's Tournament Champion, who made her successful debut with a second round stoppage.

Look, I know that only Americans call it Soccer and that everywhere else in the world it is Football. I get it. The thing is, I'm American and I feel it would be disingenuous for me to just start calling it Football like I've always called it Football. Football to me is still the NFL and will probably stay that way as long as there is an America and the NFL. I'm sorry. That being said, Buakaw Banchamek will be giving out the world of professional Football a try.
According to a report, two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Buakaw Banchamek will be playing for RBAC FC, which is a reserve team for the Thai Premier League club. No, Buakaw won't be involved in the Premier League, but what did you expect from him, to just immediately be among the elite? It's not clear what sort of role that Banchamek will have on the team, but he was involved in a game this Sunday and is expected to get some play time. How this will mesh with his career as a Kickboxing and Thai fighter has yet to be seen, but I suspect it won't have a huge impact.
Buakaw is scheduled to fight Lee Sung-Hyun on February 23rd in the K-1 World MAX Final Four. [source]Add a comment
Las Vegas is about to have another injection of quality Kickboxing this March as Kickboxing Empire returns to the Kickboxing game promoting a big event on March 8th at the Axis in the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The show will be done in conjunction with the IKA with two vacant IKA titles on the line in bouts between internationally-renowned competitors. The main event features a bout for the IKA Heavyweight Championship between Agron Preteni and Luis Tavares, with the co-main event for the vacant IKA Intercontinental Light Cruiserweight title between Pavel Turuk and Shawn Yarborough.
Former Bellator 115lbs Champion Zoila Frausto will make her Muay Thai debut this weekend on a Dennis Warner WCK Muay Thai event. The event goes down at 7pm on Saturday, February 15th from the Pechanga Resort and Casino. For those that live in the San Diego area or know how to dial in their satellite dish to pick up regional Fox Sports networks the event will air on Fox Sports San Diego live.
Here's hoping to a good showing from Zoila Frausto, who trains out of the CSA Gym in Dublin, California, and hopefully we see yet another star MMA fighter turn to Kickboxing and Muay Thai as a viable path as there are more and more options out there in the wild right now, from Lion Fight to GLORY. If you are in the area or get Fox Sports San Diego the WCK event looks like something definitely worth checking out.
