Well, the #1 p4p fighter of the last 20yrs (if not ever) will be a busy man for the rest of the year it seems.
Having returned to Bangkok, won the WBC and WPMF world titles at lightweight, relieved Sagetdao of his Lumpinee Stadium lightweight title (avenging two 2011 losses in the process), it is safe to say that post-Sinbi Muay Thai Saenchai is having a career revival of sorts.
His legend is already in the history books, but he just keeps adding to it.
Now, he is set to take part in fights in CHINA, and PARIS, FRANCE, not to mention the rumoured rubber-match with Liam Harrison that was cancelled one month ago, and all this before the end of the year, and most likely with bouts in Bangkok sandwiched between.
There is no rest for greatness it seems.
Tomorrow he participates on the Muay Thai Warriors card, which will take place in Kwangjao. He takes on local fighter Chao Li Dao.
Then in October he participates on the same Paris card as Sam-A.
The Harrison rubber-match is being whispered about; nothing firm mentioned yet, but with both men signed in to fight in July, and both men on the back of great wins (two in Saenchai’s case), it’s as good a time as any.
Viva la Saenchai. Enjoy his greatness while it lasts, and if he rocks up in your country, don’t miss the chance to see him fight live.
