This past week saw a ton of notable and big fights. A large portion of them were concentrated on the cards on Tuesday and Thursday, with Tuesday's show being at Lumpini and Thursday's being at Rajadamnern.

Tuesday's show was stacked from top to bottom. Chokprecha vs. Ponkrit was the main event and it was an interesting clash of styles. Though Chokprecha is very aggressive, lately he's fought a lot more strategically and as a result has seen much better results. This time out he didn't seem to fight as strategically, and that may be due in part to Ponkrit doing a great job of enforcing the clinch and scoring with knees, dumping Chokprecha to the canvas numerous times.

Wanchalong vs. Yokphet was a good fight, as all Wanchalong fights are. One of the big difference-makers in this fight was a knockdown that Yokphet scored in round four. It could've gone either way and some referees definitely would've let it go.

Also on Tuesday was a really good fight between Mongkolchai and PetU-thong. This was a geat display of timing from both fighters. My favorite moment of the fight was when Mongkolchai leaned back to evade a kick and then simultaneously dumped PetU-thong.

Friday's card had the real big names on it, including two of Muay Thai's absolute top fighters at the moment in Singdam and Yodwicha. Most people including myself thought Singdam would be too much for the surging Yodwicha but once again we were all proven wrong. Yodwicha's clinch and knee game overwhelmed Singdam and got him another top victory. I didn't even expect Yodwicha to beat Petboonchu in his last fight but he keeps defying expectations and at 17 years of age is a phenom to have done what he's been doing at 130-135.

Pokaew and Sam-A fought to a draw in a fight that was very different from their last one. The last one saw Pokaew stalking forward, trying to clinch and knee while Sam-A put on a clinic moving around the ring. This time out Pokaew changed his game up and kicked more and it definitely troubled Sam-A, who came storming back in the fifth round and threw everything but the kitchen sink at Pokaew. It was a close fight that I've seen people score for both sides. If I had to pick a side I think I'd go with Pokaew as the winner.

Friday had some pretty good fights as well. Satarnmuanglek stopped Niwlukrak with low kicks in the third round in what was a great process of breaking down a fighter. It was a lot like Pornsaneh's low kick stoppage of Yokvithaya on Thursday, where it was one low kick that stopped the fight. Also on Friday was a rematch between Aikmongkol and Songkom. Aikmongkol took some huge shots but got back his loss from their last fight.

Outside of the major stadiums, Damien Alamos was in action where he rematched Lampard Sor. Khamsing. This time Alamos stopped him with a high kick in the second round.

Saturday saw a pair of vicious stoppages, with Dejrit sparking out Prakaysiang after a left hook and a high kick on the way down. Petnakorn elbowed Petchartchai basically until he was out on his feet, where the referee stepped in and stopped the fight due to a cut. I think it's safe to say that Petchartchai would've gotten stopped regardless of the cut.
