Monday, June 23, 2008

Thai superstar Lamsongkram Chuwatana won every round against French champion Farid Villaume to easily defend his WBC MUAYTHAI Middleweight crown in Montengo Bay Jamaica last night (20 June)

Lamsongkram broke Farid's right rib cage in the second round with punishing knees. He then extended his advantage to run out easy winner on points.

On the same card WBC defending super welterweight champions Yodsaenklai Fairtex proved far too strong for Malaipet Team Diamond.

After three lightening and entertaining rounds that had thousands of Jamaican's cheering, Yodsaenklai work like a precision fighting machine totally eclipse Malaipet who was unable to continue at the beginning of the fourth round after sustaining a serious cut under the eye caused by elbow strikes.

The third WBC MUAYTHAI World Title was won by Super Cruiserweight Australian Steve McKinnon, who showed great courage to triumph over Dutch toughman "bad boy" Ashwin Balrak.

McKinnon started strong and never let up to win the vacant title by a comfortable margin.
