The World Kickboxing Network visited Thailand this past weekend with the Asian Championship promoted in Bangkok. The event continued a series of events the organization has held in Phuket, Pattaya and the city-capital over the last three years.
The recent event featured the WKN Asian Lightweight title fight between Iranian-Swede Farzad Rangrazian and the representative of the country-host Nong-Aun Borbepas. The latter replaced a previously announced Thai-fellow Singsamang Sitchansing.
The Borbepas vs. Rangrazian bout didn’t go the distance. The contest ended in the third round in favor of the latter.
Rangrazian stopped his opponent with punches. As a result, he took a prestigious belt, which is known in Thailand since 2000s, when WKN collaborated with Songchai Ratanansuban of “S-1 promotion”, bringing the authentic representatives of Muay Thai (Sakmongkol Sithchuchok, Keatsompkom Satdum and others) to Arab Emirates, England, France and Switzerland in terms of “Grand Tournoi” series.
