The next edition of “Thai Fight” takes place at CentralPlaza WestGate in Bang Yai, Nonthaburi Province, Thailand this coming Saturday, October 17. The event titled “Begins” features the representatives of the country-host up against international opponents in a series of Muay Thai and Kard Chuek bouts (rope around hand and forearm instead of gloves). The full fight card was announced today with famed Saenchai battling it out in the headliner of the show.
Former four-division Lumpinee Boxing Stadium champion Saenchai was in action last month (September) in Bangkok, where he recorded the 55th win in a row (watch video highlights here). At the upcoming event this coming Saturday, 40-year-old Muay Thai legend faces Esmail Ganji in a three-round 67 kg matchup.
Muay Thai fans can watch Thai Fight: Begins live on Channel 8 in Thailand, and the promotion’s channel on YouTube internationally. The start time is scheduled for October 17 at 6 pm local time, which in Australia converts to 10 pm AEDT / 7 pm AWST.
