M-One Muay Thai returns with “Reborn” taking place Thursday May 16th, 2013 at San Manuel Casino in Highland, CA. The main event will be American Romie Adanza against Mini Flyweight Rajadamnern Stadium Jomhod Eminent Air for a WBC World Title. The co-main event will feature Lumpinee Stadium regular Sagetdao Petchpayathai from Kiapetch Gym in Bangkok against Tetsuya Yamato from Japan.
Promoter of M-One Montri Sunpanich is one of, if not the first to promote Muay Thai shows in the States. M-One hosted two very important shows in 2011 for American Muay Thai. The first was August 14th, 2011 which featured American Kevin Ross vs Saenchai pound for pound the best in the world for the main event. Kevin Ross lost by unanimous deicison but it proved that American Muay Thai fighters can hang with the best of them and squashed the stigma that American Muay Thai fighters are inferior to European and Thai fighters.
Just over two months after the Kevin Ross vs Saenchai matchup M-One held another event in October, 2011 in Los Angeles. The event was entitled “Team USA vs Team Thailand” which featured Americans Joe Schilling, Kevin Ross, and Romie Adanza as well as Thai fighters Sagetdao Petpayathai, Kaoklai Kaennorsing, and Rungravee Sasiprapa. M-One puts on great Muay Thai shows and I am glad they are back. Like their facebook page to keep up with their latest updates.
