The World Kickboxing Network starts off a new series of Muay Thai Farang fight shows in the birthplace of the Art of Eight Limbs.

The concept of Muay Thai Farang fighting series returns to the land of the world’s most traditional Martial Art. On Saturday 28th May Rawai Stadium in Phuket accommodates the WKN championship of Asia.

Since late 90’s the WKN worked with Songchai Ratanansuban of Onesongchai Promotion. For over a decade Songchai was known as the Don King of Muay Thai. In 1999 he outlined that it was an honor to work with the World Kickboxing Network and establish a fruitful relationship. The collaboration has held the outstanding ‘Grand Tournoi’ events in Thailand, England, France, Switzerland and Arab Emirates.

The new Muay Thai Farang concept is established in the cooperation of Vicharn Areerob and Preechar Areerob. It reportedly aims to see muay thai-boxers from around the world competing on Thai soil. The debut event on May 28 in Phuket will see Iranian-Swedish light-heavyweight Tofan Pirani fighting in the WKN Asia championship. Taekwondo black belt Pirani is notable for his double appearance at K-1 Japan, as well as the Bigger’s Better Boxing participation live on Eurosport network. His opponent is yet revealed.

Muay Thai Farang is penciled to be included in the eminent Simply The Best world series on Kombat Sport network. We will have more on this story as it develops.
