Paowarit Sasiprapa is scheduled to make his American Debut next year in January vs Ognjen Topic from New Jersey. The bout is scheduled to take place at Hall at St. Pauls. on January 18th, in New York. This is the first event scheduled next year for New York Promotion Friday Night Fights.
Paowarit came to California to fight in the “Muay Thai in America Show” which was held on December 1st, 2012 in Playa Del Rey, CA. He was coming to replace Rungravee Sasiprapa who was originally scheduled to fight but had to back out because of an injury.
Ironically, Paowarit didn’t end up fighting on the card either. He is currently staying with Malaipet Sasiprapa in Fresno, CA. This is Paowarit’s only scheduled fight in America thus far. Some of Paowarit Sasiprapa’s accomplishments include:
- Champ of Eastern (Esaan) Thailand
- Champ World Muay Thai; Rachadamneun 105 lbs;
- Channel 7 Champ Tiger Cement- 118 lbs;
- Channel 3 Champ Isusu 118 lbs; Champ IKF England 60 and 62 kilos
Ognjen Topic is one of the most promising fighters to come out of the east coast. He has had two controversial decision losses in the past to Anthony Castrejon, and Neungsiam Samphusri. He recently defeated Rami Ibrahim, another respected fighter on the east coast. Ognjen has expressed to me in the past that the is only interested in fighting Thai boxer’s of Paowrit Sasiprapa’s caliber.
