This year Muay Thai promotion “Thai Fight” celebrates its tenth anniversary. Following the previous edition held in Nakhon Si Thammarat (southern Thailand) last month, the representatives of “The Art of Eight Limbs” return to Samui on April 27. The event takes place at Phru Chaweng featuring the nine-fight bill with famed Saenchai battling it out in the headliner of the show.

The fight card includes a series of Muay Thai bouts as well as the contests in Kard Chuek, where instead of boxing gloves the rope is used around hand and forearm. The lineup includes the local fighters up against international competitors coming from Russia, Iran, Germany, Brazil, Kyrgyzstan and Australia.

Riding the 45-win streak, Saenchai (308-49-2) faces Russian Maksim Manafov. The pair squares off in the scheduled for three rounds Muay Thai bout at catchweight with the limit of 66 kg.
