Fantastic news for Glaswegian, and Scottish Muay Thai fans in general!
Saenchai’s next big foreign adventure prior to Paris, and following his China victory, will take place north of where I myself am from… north of “the north”… north of the border. North of north England, the land of kilts, haggis and heroin addiction (Trainspotting definitely represents 90% of the Scottish public) as well as beautiful scenery and some truly incomprehensible accents.
He will take on Pakorn, former Rajadamnern champion and still top 3 ranked in the Raja, Lumpinee and by the WMC and WBC.
- Saenchai vs. Pakorn
Saenchai’s 2012 streak includes a third win (in vengeance, this time) over Sagetdao to claim the Lumpinee Stadium lightweight title, a win over Umar Semeta for the WPMF world belt, victory in China, and a win over the current Sportswriters Fighter of the Year in Penek. He is truly cementing his legacy as the greatest ever.
Pakorn in his own right is still in form and has just beaten Mongkolchai, who was #5 ranked in the Rajadamnern Stadium and was #3 at the Lumpinee. Prior to that, he beat none other than former Fighter of the Year Kongsak. The former Rajadamnern titleholder is easily a current elite in either the Lumpinee or Raja, and will give Saenchai a great fight.
Here is Saenchai defeating Sagetdao, and Pakorn’s fine performance against Mongkolchai.
To see this fight (gotta do it)… well, I would walk five hundred miles and a-I would walk five hundred more…
