As many of you know there was a lot of Muay Thaiaction all over the world this past few days. The big event in the States was the Kings Birthday Matchups held a the Commerce Casino in LA. The main event for the evening was Muay Thai veteran Malaipetch vs. Kevin Ross. As many of you know Kevin is a friend of MMT and is a contributor to our community.

There is a full write up of the event available on Muay Thai Authority. A huge MMT congrats to Kevin for a well deserved victory. The judges scored the card (49-45, 50-45 and 50-45) As always if any of you have footage please feel free to share, I’m hoping if any of you made it to the event, let us know how it went. You can check out more pics from the event here.
I came across this post fight clip of Kevin, who looked more like he had just played 9 holes of golf rather then mixing it up with Malaipetch.
I guess there were some grumblings about Malaipetch, not training hard enough for this fight. Malaipetch is a friend of the MMT, and I will always give him props… but you make your own decisions. I agree with Kevin’s response… you make your choices you win some, you lose some but the decision to train is a factor within your control.
