Here is a fight that took place this past week in Russia.  It features and WBC light heavyweight champion Kaennorsing in a 5 round full muay thai rules bout.

Just a caveat… I’m not posting this because it’s good muay thai, in fact it’s pretty ugly muay thai.   I’m posting it as these guys are the tops in the 77kg category.

Levin has been on streak, winning the sport accord games gold medal and it’s Showtime belt.  I’m not a fan of Levin.  I think he’s a bit of a cock.   There’s a few points in this where he tosses Kaoklai out of the ring and tries to hit with an illegal elbow… I’m not a huge Kaoklai fan either but I think it’s uncalled for.

Last time I expressed this, I think there was some sentiment that this was some sort of reverse discrimination.  That if I Thai acted this way it would be ok.    I’m not fussed about the taunting…  I just felt the ring toss was uncalled for… Levin was already dominating him and he just didn’t need to do it.

  1. Levin should rematch yod under full thai rules. Levin think he is top king after winning that sparring pad competition in china.

    Take on yod, full MT rules..

    go go pai pai pa Pai!!!

  2. Yeah, not the most entertaining fight. Levin sure does act cocky in the ring and like you say the ring toss was silly and uncalled for.
    A Yod full MT rematach would be wicked!!

  3. Best thing about this fight was the ring girls. Sloppy Muay Thai at best.

  4. I find it ironic that some people are calling this fight ‘sloppy muay thai’ cus if you look at really old footage of thai legends you will really see some ‘sloppy[i dont agree with that term when used to describe a fight between two genuine well trained nak muays, regardless of how they re-act to eachother] muay thai.

    to call it sloppy would be implying that these guys cant perform clean muay thai, which is a ridiculous thought to entertain even for a second.

    • instead of sloppy, what do you think could be a better way to describe this?

  5. I will always have a deep respect for Kaoklai for that Knockout of Mighty Mo in that K-1 match years ago.

  6. I for one have always been a fan of kaoklai. He sure takes on any comers even heavy weight giants and anyone thats on a roll they are all the same to him… :) I like his teeps , the way he uses his reach with his kicks and very fluid with his legs.. hes pretty good wen he lets loose with those elbows too :)

    ok i say all this and i didnt see the video yet lol..

  7. years and years that i hope and pray to see Lam to take on Levin..

  8. that ref fucking sucked.
