Top 3 Muay Thai Bouts You Don’t Want To Miss This Weekend

We may have already seen Rodtang, Kaona and other elite Muay Thai stars in action at World Siam Stadium on Monday, but we still have plenty more to look forward to this coming weekend.

After a three-week break, ONE Championship returns for another epic line-up at REIGN OF DYNASTIES this weekend with Josh Tonna set to challenge Sam-A Gaiyanghadao for the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World title in the main event.

The Australian, Tonna, is coming into this bout of a huge knockout win over UK’s Andy Howson at ONE: WARRIORS CODE back in February and has told ONE Championship “

Standing in his way, however, is arguably one of the greatest Muay Thai stars of all time, Sam-A Gaiyanghadao.

Sam-A became a ONE two-sport World champion when he defeated Wang Junguang to become the ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World champion, then defeat Tonna’s fellow-Australian star Rocky Ogden to make history and claim the Starwweight Muay Thai World title.

Also taking place on Friday 9th October is Petchyindee’s weekly event Muaymunwansuk (Boxing Fun Friday), featuring a 142lbs clash between Chujaroen Dabransarakarn and Nuenglanlek Jitmuangnon.

Nuenglanlek, who was voted 2019 Fighter of the Year by three different sports reporters, already holds a win over his opponent, having beaten Chujaroen at the Kiatpetch Super Fight show in February this year.

Chujaroen, however, is coming into this bout off the back of a big win over Thananchai Rachanon at the end of August and told Muaythai2000, “he is not the same as that day”, regarding his previous loss and he has “prepared to be fit and trained well, there is no problem at all”.

The third featured bout of the weekend sees another huge rematch between two of Thailand’s greatest Super-Lightweights, as Seksan Or.Kwanmuang takes on Kongklai AnnyMuayThai at Siam Omnoi Stadium.

Coming off a huge knockout loss to Kongklai at Rajadamnern Stadium just four weeks ago, Seksan is preparing to defend his Siam Omnoi Stadium title against his rival this coming Saturday.
