Petchboonchu FA Group – Pad Porn

0

Happy Friday Nak Muay! Today’s Pad Porn comes to us from Bangkok.    The FA Group Muay Thai Gym is tucked away on a quiet soi behind the channel 7 studios.  If you’ve ever gone to the Sunday afternoon Channel 7 fights,  (you should it’s free and the fights are mental) you would have nearly on top of the gym.  The gym is small, but has produced one of, if not the most decorated nak muay currently fighting (13+ titles), Petchboonchu.

He’s a bit of a polarising fighter… you either love his fighting style or you hate it.  He’s known predominantly as a clinch fighter.  As you can see from his training rounds he’s capable of more then his clinch… you don’t get to where he is being one dimensional.   He’s recently come off a string of losses fighting international nak muay, Greg Wootton and Bobo Sacko.  I’m not sure his fighting style necessarily translates well against western muay thai  (judging and fighting styles).

His training routine consists and hour of clinch play before hitting the pads.  As you can see from the clinch play, it’s incredibly fluid.  I like how most of the exercise is getting into the clinch.

Here he is working with his trainer Diesel.

Many thanks to John Wolcott for capturing this footage and cover photo!

I started My Muay Thai back in 2006... I was tired of reading about MMA, and wanted somewhere I could watch real muay thai fights, be inspired and connect with others who love muay thai as much as I do... I currently live in London... when I'm not geeking out over muay thai you can find me bombing around London on my scrambler, ferreting out the latest street food gems.
