Two New World Champions Crowned at Rajadamnern Stadium

10 May 2018


Wednesday the 9th of May saw two warriors claim the vacant WBC MuayThai light-flyweight and featherweight world titles at the world famous Rajadamnern stadium in Bangkok.

First up was Petchyindee gym fighter Praewpao taking on Sangfah Nor Anuwatgym for the vacant WBC 108lb world title in a matchup that promised to be a blood-thirsty affair — the contest didn’t disappoint in that context.

The bout saw both fighters pushing each other’s durability to the limits with the southpaw Praewpao peppering his opponent with venomous left kicks from the opening bell, looking to set the tone for the contest — Sangfah for his part was looking to set up his attacks from behind his right kick and both fighters traded some heavy punches throughout the first three rounds.

It was to be a case of agony for one and ecstasy for the other as the referee (on advice from the ringside doctor) called a halt to the contest in the 4th round due to a nasty war wound over the eye of Sangfah — the cut was bleeding profusely and the correct decision was made to protect the fighters health.

Praewpao had his hand raised in glorious victory in becoming the new WBC MuayThai light-flyweight (108lbs) champion of the world.

Next up was the night’s ‘main event’ which saw another Petchyindee gym fighter Petchdam challenging one of the hottest properties around the elite fight circuit, Rungkit MorBeskamala, for the vacant WBC 126lb title in what promised to be a scintillating matchup.

The contest was five rounds of tit-for-tat skilled marksmanship between these two super-fighters. They both left everything in the ring with the southpaw Rungkit and the sharpe-shooting Petchdam showcasing the beautiful fighting art of MuayThai to those in attendance.

It was a war of attrition of the thunderous left kick of Petchdam and the torpedo right kick of Rungkit that was the ‘story of the fight’ for most parts of the pulsating encounter.

The stars were aligned for Petchdam and his night of glory came as he got the nod from two of the three ringside judges, with one judge scoring the contest to Rungkit.

It was an evening of crowning glory for the two Petchyindee gym modern day gladiators who became the new WBC Kings of the world in the light-flyweight and featherweight divisions.
