Muay Thai: WBC Extravaganza + Omnoi & WMC tournaments!

wbc mt belt

March-June 2012 is a great time to be a fan of Muay Thai, especially in Thailand!

After the consecutive Saturday Lumpinee Stadiums cards Sam-A/Petchpanomrung & Saenchai/Sagetdao, we had several announcements, the three most eye-catching to me of which I will feature here, namely:

*The Omnoi Stadium tournament.
*The WMC 4-man 72kg title tournament
*The WBC Extravaganza

We at FSA have twice featured the WMC tournament, first as breaking news and then as a breakdown. It will feature 29 fight winning streak, unbeaten in 5yrs Lumpinee & Thai Fights champion Saiyok,  ISKA World champ & Contender UK winner Jordan Watson, Phuket Top Team star Ilya Grad, and the massive Vuyisille Colossa. It is at the Bangkok Convention Centre on April 3rd, and we will both be there live, albeit cheering on different fighters!

The WBC event is a big one, on June 9th at the Bangkok Impact Arena. A fundraiser for Thai flood victims, it will feature SEVEN “world” title fights, and considering that only the World MuayThai Council (WMC) and both Thai national stadiums (Rajadamnern & Lumpinee) are by consensus more prestigious titles to win, and that WBC (from boxing) has the money and name/brand power to get in great names to fight for their belts, should they stack this card with internationally recognisable, elite names, they could even leapfrog (arguably) the WMC in terms of belt prestige.

Lastly, the Omnoi Stadium “Isuzu Cup” 145lbs tournament, featuring Phetasswin, Singmanee, Superbon and more. This concluded March 25th.
Phetasswin should be known to UK Muay Thai fans as having had a robbery win over Liam Harrison, and Singmanee is the well-known  former Rajadamnern champion, still earning his corn in the Omnoi and racking up tournament titles.
FINAL:

Stay tuned to FSA for more Muay Thai news views and videos as and when they come.
