Tomorrow in Paris, France, the second edition of Best of Siam takes place, and it's headlined by a huge fight between Saenchai and Damien Alamos. Along with the main event, there are some other great match-ups on the card as well.
Saenchai is renowned by many, including myself, as the best Muay Thai fighter in the world, fighting all over the place in weight, defeating the best opponents, and much larger opponents. Tomorrow, he'll again be against a larger opponent, as Damien Alamos is the Lumpinee champion at light welterweight. Saenchai comes off a big win against Pakorn in Scotland, and before that he avenged a loss to Singdam Kiatmoo9 in October. Alamos actually lost his last fight, to Diesellek Aoodonmuang last month. Nonetheless, it's still a huge fight with two big names and two great fighters.
Yetkin Ozkul will return to the ring just under two weeks after losing to Masaaki Noiri and he'll fight Saksongkram Poptheeratham. Saksongkram is coming down in weight for the fight, which takes place at 61kg. It'll be a very tough fight for Ozkul against a bigger Thai opponent.
Farid Villaume will also return, but after not having fought for two years. He faces Antuan Siangboxing, aka Antoine Pinto. Villaume is 37 years old and a French legend, while Antuan is just 21, although he already has 141 fights to his name.
Some more Thai vs. French match-ups are also on the card, with French up and comer Bobo Sacko fighting Petasawin Seatransferry at 67kg. Sacko comes off his first career loss to Aziz Hlali, last month. At 70kg, Dejrit Poptheeratham fights Hicham Chaibi.
