What do you do when you’ve fought 400+ times, won 358 of those match, and want to challenge yourself? Well if your Sarm- A you head to boxing. There is a fairly sizeable contingent of nak muay who tried there hand at western boxing and excelled… (Samart, somluck, Manus, Jomthong) there are more but I can’t recall them at the moment.
This was Sam-A’s professional boxing debut, from earlier in the month, we only have 1 round of footage… Sarm-A goes on to win by TKO in the first round. I’m always a bit suprised that nak muay can make the transition so easily. I would have thought a life time of doing muay thai would be counterproductive, limited footwork, head movement, would cripple a nak muay… I guess you don’t get to 358 wins by not having decent hands.
Can anyone think of other nak muay who went on to box?
