Muaythai in China in Full Steam Fri, 17 Jul 2015 04:57:31 +0000 China is a country with a proud martial arts history, the country of wushu, kung fu which history goes back thousands of years.

Chinese martial art is filled with ancient traditions and values like muaythai and therefore there is a very close relationship between the two martial arts.

The first edition of World Combat Games in 2010 was a huge success and who can forget the amazing opening with Jet Lee representing Chinese wushu and Jackie Chan singing the hymn of the games.

A memorandum of understanding signed by WMC and IFMA with the Chinese Government will be sanctioned and coordinated with the World Muaythai Council (WMC) on the national level and International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (IFMA) on the amateur level.

The Chinese Government only recognises these two bodies to ensure there is proper grass root development and the one way to the professional level.

IFMA is working closely with the Chinese Wushu Association not just in SportAccord and other international events and the WMC has appointed Mr. Veera Pluemsiriwong as the representative and coordinator of WMC in the People’s Republic of China.

Recently there have been rumours that other people or organisations claim to be the representatives which is false and untrue.

Recently Mr. Peng Liu, the Minister of Sport of China came to Bangkok to meet the President of WMC and IFMA to continue the close cooperation wishing IFMA best of luck to the IOC recognition and continue the close relationship not only between the countries but also the two sports and martial arts which are filled with traditions.

Lion Fight Returns To Pechanga Resort & Casino Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:06:00 +0000 Las Vegas, Nev. – After selling out its first Muay Thai event at Pechanga Resort & Casino, Lion Fight Promotions returns Friday, July 31 to California’s premiere casino with a fight card that will be broadcast nationwide on AXS TV. The event pits Thai legend Malaipet Sasiprapa against British sensation Liam “The Hitman” Harrison in the evening’s headliner.

IMG_0001Malaipet’s 146 pro wins and prestigious championships at Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium assure that he is a slam-dunk Hall of Famer whenever his fighting days are over. But the masterful showman, now 33 years old and living in Fresno, Calif., figures to have his hands full against the heavy-handed Harrison, a four-time world champion whose 74 pro Muay Thai and kickboxing wins have included 38 knockouts.

“Malaipet is one of Muay Thai’s biggest names and most accomplished fighters, a superb technician who has been kicking sandbags since he was a young boy and so kicks extremely hard,” said Lion Fight president Scott Kent. “But Malaipet is going to have to be in phenomenal shape because Liam Harrison is an ultra-aggressive finisher who might be the toughest opponent Malaipet has faced in a few years. Liam Harrison is himself a really big name in Muay Thai – in the past a major Thai magazine voted him ‘Best Foreign Fighter.’ That is an extraordinary honor and yet another reason this is a very dangerous fight for Malaipet.”

Malaipet (146-29-6, 23 KO’s) vs. Harrison (74-18-2, 38 KO’s) is a non-title affair at 147 pounds.

LION FIGHT 24 airs live on AXS TV starting at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The broadcast will feature play-by-play and color commentary by UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich alongside renowned sports commentator Michael “The Voice” Schiavello.

Muaythai Success Story from Danial ‘Mini T’ Williams Fri, 26 Jun 2015 03:13:13 +0000 In a most thrilling battle in the ring, Danial Williams defeated Thanit Khomsai to claim the WMC World Title and taking a well-deserved leap in his muaythai career honouring Kao Sok Muaythai Gym where he trains.


A 4-time Western Australian Title Champion and IFMA Un  iversity World Cup champion, Danial is extremely proud to have now added WMC title to his record.


“Danial Williams has come a long way to this victory and to all achievements he made in his young age. Starting with various martial arts as a kid he came to muaythai training led by his uncle, a former muaythai athlete. The turning point for Danial was watching his brother’s successful career in muaythai. That is when Williams decided to follow in his footsteps and we can see that he has not lost face on this path”, sums up his coach.


This event has been a great preparation for the IFMA Royal World Cup which is scheduled to place in Bangkok this August and both athletes will have a great opportunity to add new trophies to their personal hall of fame.

Lion Fight 22 Delivers: Results and Highlights Wed, 27 May 2015 03:58:27 +0000 Lion Fight delivered again in a highly electrifying evening of big fights and competition on AXS TV.  After a bit of a break, fights returned to AXS TV in a BIG way with another great night of action from Lion Fight. Lion Fight 22 took place under the stars outdoors at Sunset Station in Henderson, NV and saw TWO champions crowned.

In the main event Jo Nattawut took on Salah Khalifa, who stepped for an injured Kem Sitsongpeenong, for the Super Welterweight Title. It didn’t look like the fight would last long as Nattawut hurt Khalifa bad in the first round. However, Khalifa was able to recover and survive through 5 rounds with Nattawut. “Smokin’ Jo” was just too much for him though, and he cruised to a decisive decision win to claim the title.

In the Co-Main Event, Tiffany Van Soest returned to reclaim the title she lost to Caley Reece over a year ago. Reece has since retired, so Van Soest faced Britain’s Bernise Alldis. In the first round, Van Soest opened up a gash in Alldis’ cheek with an elbow and that gash would eventually do Alldis in, as Van Soest’s aggression ended things in fourth round per doctor’s orders.

Also on the card, Brian Del Rosario and Christine Ferea picked up their first pro wins, Anthony Castrejon edged out a split decision victory in a rematch with Jason Andrada, and Gaston Bolanos and Damien Earley put on maybe the “Fight of the Night” before an injury stopped the action.

Here are the highlights courtesy of AXS TV:

 Fight Card Results

  • Jo Nattawut def. Salah Khalifa via Unanimous Decision (50-43 50-43 50-43
