Speaking of big muay thai cards, how about one featuring almost every top name in 70kg division and then some? Slated for September 7th in France, the WBC World Muay Thai Millennium Championships is one of the most insanely stacked Thailand vs. Farang cards of the year.
There are already scheduled bouts between Gregory Choplin and Duochonlek, Raphael Lllodra and Yodsanklai Fairtex, Michael Piscitello and Saenchai Pk Muaythaigym, Mehdi Zatout and Kem Sitsongpeenong, Kamel Jemel and Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, and Karim Bennoui and Aranchai.
Look at that list. Look at it.
If we’re talking realistically, the Thai’s are more than likely going to be the favorites heading into every match, but still, some of these fights are truly going to be fantastic. Kamel Jemel vs. Sitthichai is going to be interesting, to say the least, and Karim Bennoui vs. Aranchai might be the closest fight of the night. Michael Piscitello is probably going to have an enormous weight advantage against Saenchai, considering he’s relatively big for 70kg. But then again it’s Saenchai. What more can you say? It’s always a pleasure to watch Yodsanklai and Kem perform as well.
This still very early information and could still be subject to change. Stick with FSA for any updates on the Millenium Championship card, and be sure to keep an eye out for more fantastic fights that might be added.
