This was the Semi-Final match up of the Thai Fight tournament. Pinca who should be no stranger to you is a very legit Nakmuay from France, who’s been on quite a roll. Going up against the heavily favored Petchmongkol.
The rules of the Isuzu Thai fight tournament are 3 x 3 min rounds, if the score cards are tied the fighters will move into a 4th round. As you can see, there isn’t much time for a feel out round so these guys are immediately down to business.
I’m always impressed by pinca, he’s can get a bit scrappy at times but for the most part has beautiful muay thai. Could you imagine if this fight was fought in the states? I found my western sensibilities being tested towards the end of this match. Could you imagine the ref stopping the bout between Jongsanan and Sakmongkol? Hell’s no this is Thailand, someone’s going to leave on a stretcher!
I was impressed with Pinca’s left hook, surprised actually how many times he was able to land it… Anyway, I’ll be posting the finals in a couple of days. Many thanks to TungstenPalm for taking the time to rip, upload and share with all of us.
