Some of you may have noticed changes to the scheduled lineup of the Isuzu Tournament at the end of the groups phase. In February, Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee from Group A and Thepsutin Pumpanmuang from Group B were barred from the tournament for breaking contract stipulations by fighting outside of Thailand during the duration of the tournament, similar to what happened to Cosmo Alexandre with It's Showtime.

We ended up seeing Nopparat Keatkhamtorn vs Antoine Siangboxing and Dernchonlek Sor Sor Niyom vs Diesellek Top King Boxing. Both the original tournament competitors ended up winning their fights, Nopparat by a very close decision and Dernchonlek by third round tko.

Prakaisaeng Sit-Or took a decision over Thanongdet Petpayatai, while Kem Sitsongpeenong knocked out Kongjak Sor Tuantong to close groups action.

The semi-finals concluded on the April 16. Matchmaking for the semi-finals was done by fan vote, which is an interesting innovation by the organizers, as these things are usually decided by the organizers or by the fighters themselves. Dernchonlek vs Nopparat took place on April 2nd. Nopparat took the decision despite Dernchonlek was a favorite to face Kem in the finals.

Kem Sitsongpeenong vs Prakaisaeng Sit-Or was originally scheduled for April 9, but was postponed due to Kem being sick. The match ended up happening on April 16 with Kem winning by round 4 tko.

This places Nopparat and Kem in the finals. Kem has to be the heavy favorite in this match-up since he's scored multiple KO victories over Nopparat, including one in the groups phase of this same Isuzu Tournament. If he wins this tournament, he will proceed to Thai Fight 2011 where he also likely will be a heavy favorite in a field of foreign fighters.
