Stacked card in Pattaya!
Live updates on the show:
We were treated to a very brief showing from Kem Sitsongpeenong – Kem wins in the first round via cut from an elbow to the forehead. Another day another dollar.
Sudsakorn vs. Singmanee is still only a three round fight, despite being the decider to see who is the Thai entry into the Thai Fights tournament.
Sudsakorn looks comfortable.
Round 2 goes to Sudsakorn I would say.
Huge dump from Singmanee on Sudsakorn round 3 – catches body kick and simultaneously sweeps and dumps him almost on his head. Great points scorer, probably wont be enough.
Sudsakorn probably did just enough.
Slightly surprising decision – Singmanee’s dump on Sudsakorn in round 3 swayed the decision obviously, he finished strong, I guess Sudsakorn didn’t do quite enough.
Buakaw comes out using Por.Pramuk name – hardly surprising, despite attempts to stir up drama and mystery.
Wai Kru in effect – Buakaw seems fine. Confident.
Buakaw advancing forwards, good to see him looking confident – bear in mind all the fights are 3 rounds, the usual two betting rounds where they take it easy is not in effect.
This fight was supposed to be Saiyok’s fight – the great man didn’t have 21 days rest after his WMC Grand Prix tournament win so he couldn’t fight. Buakaw steps in directly and faces his Russian opponent.
Buakaw boxing well, drops him with hook-uppercut combination in round 2.
Piles on the pressure afterwards, boxing flurry, lands a good elbow that cuts the Russian and then several straight punches that knocks over not only his opponent, but the referee as well!
Buakaw crying with emotion on the mic after the fight stops – tells the crowd he wants to just fight for the king and country, and the people, not for Por.Pramuk, a very emotional Buakaw.
Also, that Buakaw’s mother tragically passed away recently, which adds to the pathos of the occasion. He invites his father in the ring, “the only man who stuck by him” and bows to him.
He does not care if he goes to jail, he will fight Por.Pramuk legally, and he fights for the king and the people!
Very emotional stuff.
And the Kem Sitsongpeenong fight
