This was a great opening fight, I have to be honest I hadn’t seen or heard much about Saiyok prior to this fight.
I’ve seen Stevelmans on several occasions on MAX and other cards and I was pretty surprised with his performance. Stevelmans who’s got some of the best hands in Dutch MuayThai seemed to have his explosive hands neutralized from the start of the opening rounds.
I’m sure it was some of Saiyoks vicious leg kicks that made Stevelmans think twice about stepping in for some more.
After the event I briefly met up with Dan Green who’s the Head of Promotions for the MSA shows here in the UK. I would really like to see the MSA bring Saiyok over to England. I guess we would need to find him an appropriate opponent wouldn’t we?
You can see it in Stevelman that by the second round he’s officially lost the will to fight. I’m not saying that he rolled over… but you could tell that he was no longer really motivated to continue.
I’m really interested in seeing him on future cards? Have any of you seen him in his previous fights? Any of you trained with him?
