Many thanks to Mark Mian for passing this one along… we’re going retro today, this is a match up featuring Jongsanan before his days with Fairtex, vs. Superlek. Also hats off to GKfromMTA for taking the time to upload and share your collection with us.
I think this fight took place around ‘92; many consider this era the height of Muay Thai’s popularity in Thailand.
Jongsanan is a friend from Fairtex in San Francisco… for those of you who don’t know Jongsanan, is a legend. His most well known fights are with his friend Sakmongkol… one of their fights was voted fight of the decade. If you’re training in the Bay Area, you’ve probably seen him at smokers, and interclubs, cornering his Fairtex fighters. If you get the chance, you should go and introduce yourself. He’s super approachable, and I’m sure he would appreciate it.
I’ve yet to see a Jongsanan fight where he isn’t going balls out and taking a lot of damage. He told me he used to get really bad headaches after his fights… one could see why.
