    Manachai Takes On Rambo for Champion of Thailand Title!

    There is no denying Manachai a shot for a championship title. The YOKKAO fighter has been raking up the wins over the past year, it’s about time he gets the gold around his waist. In his last fight, Manachai met Pongsiri PKSaenchaiGym in the ring of Channel 7 stadium for what should have been a title fight. He was unjustifiably let down by the organizers who scraped the title only a day before the fight. Manachai, however, is not one to be discouraged easily and he went on to take home the win against one of the most reputable welterweight fighters. Come Friday 16th March, Manachai will get a shot at the prestigious Champion of Title belt. Standing between him and the belt is another elite Thai fighter, Rambo Pet Por Tor Or. Rambo is a familiar face on the stadium circuit, fighting at both Lumpinee and Rajadamnern regularly. The PTT Gym fighter has faced many top fighters

    Manachai Delivers Dominating Victory at Channel 7 Stadium!

    One of the most anticipated fights for the start of 2018 had been none other than the Channel 7 147lbs title bout between Manachai and Pongsiri PKSaenchaiGym. Regrettably the title was scraped a day before the fight. The reason given by the organizers was that Manachai would be making his Channel 7 stadium debut. This supposedly did not qualify him for the title, even though there have been precedents where fighters who were making their debut actually competed in title bouts.
