Julio Lobo Becomes Third Ever Foreign Muay Thai Fighter To Win Siam Omnoi Stadium Title

Julio Lobo - Siam Omnoi Stadium Champion

Early on Saturday 3rd July, Brazilian Muay Thai fighter, Julio Lobo, made history by winning the Siam Omnoi Stadium Welterweight title.

He defeated Rambo Phet.Por.Tor.Aor, a late replacement for Phonek Or.Kwangmuang, withdrew earlier this week due to insufficient preparation.

The Brazilian star, of Phuket Fight Club, dominated the bout and took the victory by unanimous points decision.

The win earned him a spot in the history books, as he became only the third ever non-Thai Muay Thai fighter to ever win a Siam Omnoi Stadium title.

His predecessors are Youssef Boughanem, who defeated Rungrawee PKSaenchaimuaythaigym by third-round knockout in August 2015, and Amir Naseri, who beat Petchmahachon Jitmuangon in July 2017.

Lobo is already recognised as one of the most active Muay Thai fighter in Thailand, having competed no less than nine times in 2020.

Despite no fighters for the majority of the first half of 2021, Julio Lobo has now extended his fight record for this year to 2-0. The win over Rambo today follows a victory over Yodphupa Bermphudin at Lumpinee Stadium back in March.

Lobo’s Phuket Fight Club team-mate Noelisson Silva also registered another win at SuekJao Muaythai today. He defeated Tamroypor Or.Petchkhunsuek to extend his win streak to four.
