GLORY Confirms That Phil Baroni Turned Down Schilling Fight at GLORY 21

If you were looking forward to the Twitter clash of the titans turning into a kickboxing fight at GLORY 21 between Joe Schilling and Phil Baroni you'll be in for a bit of a disappointment today. As reported by our bud Michael Stets over at MMAMania, Phil Baroni has turned down the fight with Joe Schilling due to not feeling that there was enough time for him to prepare for the fight. 

It's a contrast from the words that Baroni was slinging over the past few days, but it looks like Baroni is asking for a full fight camp heading into a fight with Schilling. If we are honest with ourselves here, it's not asking too much to want a full camp before fighting Schilling in what would be considered his home turf of the GLORY ring, but then again, the beef was started by Baroni. Baroni does want this fight to happen in the future, but if we take a long, hard look at this fight it is more of a marketable fight for this moment in history, not in a few months when the heat will have died down and people will be asking the serious question as to why Joe Schilling, in his prime, is fighting a 38 year old man who has nothing left to prove.

Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai Makes Successful Comeback With KO Win over Armin Pumpanmuang

Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai was one of the fastest rising stars on the Muay Thai scene but after a run of bad results the 21 year old decided to put his fighting career on the backburner and focus on his studies. On Tuesday night in Bang Saphan he returned to the ring and scored an extremely impressive KO win against veteran light middleweight Armin Pumpanmuang.

It was Yodkhunpon’s first fight under Muay Thai rules since 2013 and his first time fighting at 154 lbs and he looked noticeably slimmer than his opponent. Their matchup was the main event of an outdoor show to celebrate the Songkran festival which also featured Lakhai ‘The Alien' Or Boonchuay on the card.

Yodkhunpon’s last fight was for Glory last June and he dropped a decision to Gabriel Varga but he displayed no signs of ring rust in the opening round. The Sitmonchai star knocked Armin to the ground with a right push kick to the face in the first 30 seconds and seemed to have a clear advantage in terms of speed and skill.

Armin came back strongly in the second stanza and landed a hard head kick which Yodkhunpon to his credit just walked through. The 27 year old from Songkhla suddenly became the aggressor as his younger opponent resorted to attempting wild left hooks which were telegraphed and inevitably missed.

It seemed the tide had turned in Armin’s favour but by round three Yodkhunpon had regained his composure and was starting to control the fight again, albeit in more measured style than the first three minutes. It was developing into an intriguing contest but the end came suddenly after the older fighter leaned back to evade a right body kick.

Armin succeeded in making Yodkhunpon miss completely with the kick, not for the first time in the fight, but he misjudged his proximity to the ropes and ended up bouncing back towards his opponent only to be met with a devastating right uppercut elbow which connected just beneath the left eye.

Armin dropped like a stone and was unconscious for several seconds while there was elation among the contingent in Yodkhunpon’s corner who had travelled down from Kanchanaburi to witness the comeback of the former child prodigy. It was an extremely impressive performance, particularly given the amount of time he has been away from competitive Muay Thai.

Earlier in the evening Lakhai Or Boonchuay went up against a local opponent called Monsawan Tesabanbangsaphannoi who was returning to competitive action after an absence of ten years. Despite the massive disparity in height and reach ‘Alien’ came on strong in the fourth round to win the fight and take the 100,000 Baht side bet.
