Weekend Action: Aikpracha Meenayothin vs Fabio Pinca (video)

You may have heard that Buakaw has pulled out of the game for an indefinite amount of time...and as such, many of his fights have been cancelled.

This includes his bout with Fabio Pinca, a French fighter who is rated highly among the non-Thai MT community. Fabio is an aggressive fighter who defeated top Thai talent Petchmongkol and Youssef Boughem to take home the "Thai Fight" tournament title. He was expected to be a good fight for Buakaw.

After Buakaw pulled out, the promoters called in Aikpracha Meenayothin. Aikpracha is a Toyota tournament Champion (like Buakaw) who has been steadily winning in the 147lbs division. If you have never seen him fight before, this is a good one to get acquainted with him.


Just my personal feeling- I like Aikpracha's sense of range. He doesn't stay stagnant or block up too long. Once his opponent is in range, he always has a technique ready to go. He keeps control of the fight at all times.
