FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS THE TOP AMERICAN FIGHTERS FACE OFF AGAINST THAI WORLD CHAMPIONS

Oct 13, 2011
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Thai Boxing Inc. and M-One Grand Muay Thai proudly bring to you “USA vs. Thailand” on Friday, October 21st at Club Nokia, Downtown Los Angeles. The main event features Muay Thai’s version of Mike Tyson, Joe “Stitch ‘em Up” Schilling vs. the “Giant Killer” Kaoklai Kaennorsing for the WBC Muay Thai Light Heavyweight World title. This follows a historic event for M-One, who brought us living legend Saenchai Sinbimuaythai to fight against America’s poster boy, Kevin Ross, for the first-ever WBC Muay Thai Diamond belt. This show proves to be no different since for the first time in 25 years the top American fighters will be facing off against Thai world champions.

Joe is a non-stop, aggressive fighter that loves to push forward and use his elbows to end the fights early. He has won his last 5 bouts by knockout and is looking to shock the world. Kaoklai Kaennorsing is the former K1 Asia champion and former WBC Muay Thai World champion. Kaoklai has over 150 wins and comes in as the heavy favorite. He will be looking to use his experience and solid technique against Schilling. This fight has all the makings to be an instant, unforgettable classic.

The night’s co-main event includes America’s poster boy Kevin “The Soul Assassin” Ross who is coming off a legendary performance against Saenchai and will now be facing current Lumpinee Stadium champion Sakkedao Petchpayathai for the WBC Muay Thai Super Lightweight title. Kevin has worked his way up by fighting the world’s best and now gets his chance at a world title. His colorful character and “never die” attitude make him a fan favorite. Sakkedao is the last man to beat the legendary Saenchai, and is eager to make his U.S debut by defeating Saenchai’s last opponent in his own backyard and taking the title back to Thailand.

Also on the card is American Romie Adanza as he faces Thailand’s rising star Langsuanlek Sasiprapa for the MTAA World Flyweight title. Romie has a small frame but a huge heart. Fans love to cheer for him because when all the odds are stacked against him he finds a way to pull out the victory. Langsuanlek is a tall and lengthy fighter who loves to use his elbows and knees and also loves pressing the action. This fight promises to be fireworks and non-stop action from beginning to end.

As if that weren’t enough, MTAA World Champion “Thailand’s Terminator” Rungravee Sasiprapa and French fighter Yetkin Ozkul will meet in the ring for an epic rematch. Rungravee’s first fight in the U.S. had the Muay Thai community talking about it for months afterwards, and we feel it is only right to treat you with his presence once again. Rungravee’s ferocious style against Ozkul’s flashy footwork brings together the best of both worlds. Whichever fighter wins or loses, fight fans will come out victorious after watching these two perform the art of eight limbs in the ring.

The last Pro bout of the night features Fairtex Muay Thai’s Daniel Kim whose recent victory was an impressive third round knockout. He will be facing Nate Chambers of Hyena Muay Thai, Las Vegas. Chambers will be making his pro debut and has proven to be an entertaining fighter in the amateur ranks. Now let’s see how he does when he adds elbows to his arsenal. This fight card is sure to elevate the standard of Muay Thai in the United States by bringing out the best American fighters to face the originators of the sport from Team Thailand.
