It’s sort of a long promo produced by the folks that bring us Slamm. It’s really well done and a good watch. Slamm is this coming Sunday and I’m getting pretty psyched. It will be by far the best Muay Thai ticket I’ve ever been to.
Still haven’t heard from the folks from Slamm so I’m not sure if I’ll get an “access”. I was toying around with getting a video camera, do the whole hand held thing, but the footage is always so bad.
It’s insane to think Anuwat started off as the help. “Hey Anuwat make me some Moo Ping!” My trainer Bunkerd started off almost the same way. When he initially went to Fairtex, they felt he was too small, he ended doing most of the clean up and training on his own. A few decades later he becomes a Rajadomnern and Lumphini Stadium Champion.
Sounds like a formula for success, you guys should run out and start mopping your gym floor asap.
It was interesting to hear Yod call out Buakaw… I’m not sure if we’ll get a Buakaw, Yodsaenklai match up. As you can see “Eak” (Yod’s thai nickname) clearly wants the fight to happen. I had a conversation with a Thai promoter last year and he didn’t think it would happen while Buakaw was still a hot commodity. He rationalized that the K-1 Max payout is so much money that the Por.Pramuk camp would protect that at all costs. So I guess we’ll see maybe in a couple of years…
I went and looked at a poll that we did back in January, a full 70% of you think Yod will beat Souwer. We’ll find out soon enough.
What do you think?
