Saenchai defeats Manafov in one-sided bout at Thai Fight Samui

Thai Fight Samui results

Muay Thai promotion “Thai Fight” returned to Samui on April 27 with international event held at Phru Chaweng. The lineup featured nine bouts, which included four matchups in Kard Chuek, where instead of boxing gloves the rope is used around hand and forearm. Famed Saenchai traditionally battled it out in the headliner of the show.

Saenchai faced a little known Maksim Manafov of Russia. The scheduled for three rounds 66 kg catchweight bout went the distance and ended in favor of the representative of the country-host, who comfortably earned a unanimous decision.

The opening round saw Thai southpaw attacking the lead leg of his opponent as well as throwing left body kicks and punches. The second round showcased a similar one-sided performance, which forced the referee to stop the contest and literally tell the Russian competitor not to go back and fight. The final three minutes also ended in favor of Saenchai although Manafov seemed trying to get off the first gear at the beginning of the round.

In the ended Saenchai updated his record to 309-49-2, currently riding the 46-fight win streak. In his previous bout he knocked Javad Bigdeli out in the second round with knee-elbow combination.
