Anuwat-Mootje Kamal

Mosab Amrani- Bovy

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Staring Down the Eyes of a Tiger

Mosab Amrani isn't the #1 Muay Thai fighter in the world. However, he's proven that he can get in there, stand with the best, and even take sweet victory when few people believe can.

Last year, Mosab stood and banged with Anuwat Kaewsamrit. If you don't know Anuwat by now, stop reading and go youtube him. He's not called the "Iron Hands of Siam" for nothing. Mosab came out victorious in one huge upset.

This weekend at Slamm!, Mosab is getting ready to throw down with Bovy Sor of the most vicious fighters on the circuit. Mosab himself says he doesn't believe Bovy has a soul.

Check out what this man, who must once again stare down a Thai monster, has to say:

Full Muay Thai Rules (a Slamm 6 video)

A small documentary featuring Ramon Dekkers and Ivan Hippolyte: 2 of the most prominent Dutch fighters. They discuss some of their history in the ring, and what it is to fight FULL Muaythai rules.

It's kinda cool to hear these legends pay they respects to traditional Muay Thai and hear what they have to say about the current state of stand up combat sports.

I think it's worth it to hear what anyone who has a deep history in the sport has to say, whether it's Ajahn Suchart, Kru Clifton, or legendary fighters like Ramon and Ivan.

Chok Dee to the Canadians!

Well, there's no time like the present. The last stretch of November does not only bring in a wave of huge international fights, but opportunities for Canada to represent our Muay Thai at the highest levels.

First, this Friday we want to send our positive vibes to Kru Clifton Brown for his WMC World title defense in Sweden:

More info:

Next, at the end of the month our friends from Siam no1 and Southside Muay Thai will be representing Team Canada at the IFMA world
championship tournament!

Mikey and X are already in Thailand as we speak and have their own blog up (with some videos of their training):

Congratulations Again!

A congratulations to our Kru Jen and P.C. Lindor for completing Ajahn Suchart's next level of curriculum! Our two instructors are stepping it up, as this level has them studying deeper into the traditions of Muay Thai and exploring some of its more esoteric techniques.

It translates into us getting nothing but better instruction and a brighter future for spreading the traditions of Muay Thai.

Mini shoutouts go to our assistant instructors P.C. Nic and Brian for their ring performances on Saturday night. I couldn't be there but I heard it made for some must-watch videos

Bovy Sor Udomson vs Rudolph Durica @ Janus Fight Night, November 09 (video)

picture courtesy of Richlieu (


If you don't know who Bovy is, he's one of the most well known Thais and his been around for a while. He's best known for just walking forward and throwing, at the cost of absorbing some damage himself. He's so tough that he's usually successful at knocking his opponents out or at least pummeling them, however there are those like Anuwat who have knocked him out in turn.

is a well seasoned fighter himself, having fought Santichai and Andrei Kulebin multiple times in tournaments.

Here are two strong female Thai's going at it. I don't know who they are unfortunately. Finally! A quality clip of female MT.

Marco Pique vs Malaipet in Las Vegas 2005 (Video)

click to enlarge

I posted a fight between Marco and Yod yesterday, and I was talking about how Marco has faced a lot really well known guys early on in his pro career. Here's one of those fights against Malaipet in L.V Nevada, back in 2005.

Both these men are slated to compete in the Contender Asia Season 2 that is rumoured to start filming in the new year.

Thailand Vs Challengers Event: coming January 16/10

Thought I'd share this upcoming event with you which is part of the "Thailand Versus Series".

It's looking to be a huge promotion sanctioned by the WMC and promoted by Songchai Ratanasuban (If you don't know how big this guy is in Muaythai, look him up. He's like the Godfather of promoting).

Mr Songchai in the middle

The event has a kickass website here: , complete with fighter profiles and video trailer.

On the 16th of January 2010, look for these fighters to be representing their respective teams.

- Kaoklai Kaengnorasing
- Nopparat Keatkamtorn
- Bovy Sor Udomsorn
- Nonsai Sanyakorn
- Tum Mardsue
- Zaza Sor Aree(muaying)

- Dzabhar Askerov
- Arslan AK-47
- Antuan Siangboxing
- Joe Bam Bam(muaying)
- TBA-Japan
- Ramazan Ramazanov

As you can see there are a lot of big names from both sides, and a female fight between Zaza and Joe Bam Bam. It would be a good idea to look up some of these fighters if you want to see some of the current talent in the sport.

Yodsanklai Fairtex vs Marco Pique at Janus Fight Night, Nov 7/09 (Video)


I have to give Marco a lot of respect. He has stepped into the ring with the likes of Malaipet, Buakao, Nieky Holtzken and now Yod at a very young age. We should be seeing him again when the Contender Asia Season 2 starts.

Yod is...Yod.

Also on this card were Thai sluggers Bovy Sor Udomson and Saiyoknoi. I will post their fights if they get uploaded.

look at Yod's lil baby face

Sunday, November 8, 2009


Congratulations to Erik, Niloo and Wegz for completing the Blue grading at Siam, showing a lot of heart, technique and physical conditioning. Another round of applause for Kru J's students from XC. Remember that this is only a stepping stone as the work rate and expectations are now much higher. Love, respect and believe.

I saw some of our guys digging deep and pushing through with everything they had...I want to see that and more from now on. Let's inspire each other.

Pictures to come...
