We recently posted an article ‘So Who Is The Next Buakaw?’ and the man has not let us down…
The La Nuit Des Titans event held in France today (18/03/2012) gave our boy Aikpracha Meenayothin (also the newly crowned Lumpinee Stadium welterweight champion) the chance to step in for the ‘on hiatus’ Buakaw.
Aikpracha headlined the event at late notice to take on Fabio Pinca (Regarded as one of the best ‘western’ muay thai fighters on the current circuit)
La Nuit Des Titans was an interesting card to say the least – lots of breaks and strange pop music, we saw boxing, kickboxing, semi pro muay thai and then the 2 main fights were under full muay thai rules (yet both fighters had to wear elbow pads)
The two Thai fighters Pajonsuk Por Pramuk and Aikpracha Meenayothin were the main card fights.
Pajonsuk Por. Pramuk def. talented young up comer – Ayoub El Khaidar via a very close decision.
Pojunsuk looked content to control but not exploit and El Khaidar really showed that he is a fighter to watch in the near future.
