Great champion Kaoklai
a living legend in USA
17 Mar 2010
Thai superstar Kaoklai Kaennorsing enriched his illustrious fame to living legend status with an immaculate victory over Maghum Sakai to take out the WBC MUAYTHAI World Light Heavyweight Title and the famous WBC green belt.
The championship was held in n El Monte, California, USA, on March 14 where Kaoklai?s performance against the courageous Japanese warrior was greeted with sustained rapture from many fans and accolades from the media.
This was a classic showdown between Sakai?s fearless aggression and Kaoklai's mastery of the ring. Sakai came to California to fight for honour and fame. As a cruiserweight he lost a WBC title quest in a championship matchup with Australia's Nathan Corbett. Then moving up to the light heavyweight division he was confident his greater fitness and power would overwhelm the great Thailand champion who has traveled the world exhibiting his fighting skills and ring mastery.
For the record Kaolkai won the world title with a perfect elbow strike in the third round, but ringside observers tell of watching in awe as the Thai champion used his amazing skills, tactics and dominating physical arsenal to totally eclipse a powerful and defiant opponent.
The fight did get messy at times with Sakai at one point vented his frustrations and anger by grappling Kaoklai's head into a headlock and wildly striking out with elbows and punches.
Despite the ring tempest and heat of the battle Kaoklai always kept his cool selectively applying his body weapons with precision skills and incredible force from various and seemingly impossible angles.
Kaoklai's repeated attacks inflicted damage on Sakai for three rounds. The end was quick and world title emphatically finalized when the Thai champion executed a perfect forward/upward penetrating elbow. To his credit Sakai had gaven all he had, but fell short to the champion who is regarded by many as the greatest 175 pounds stand-up fighter in the world today.
