Wellington has another World Muay Thai title from a group of Thai-born fighters who are based in Wellington.
The main event was between Petchtanong from Angel Gym in Wellington and Beniah Doomah from Mad X gym in Queensland.
“Petchtanong won his fight with ease, winning every round on his way to a unanimous points decision to capture the MASA 63.5 kilogram world title and lifting his professional record to 212 fights for 203 wins,” coach Phillip Bennett said.
Petchtanong now currently holds three world titles at the same time in the 60kg, 63.5kg and 67kg categories.
“We are finding it increasingly difficult to get him fights in Australia so we have moved up to the 70kg weight division with plans of capturing the world title in that weight division as well,” Bennett said.
“This kid has to be seen to be believed.
“He is the greatest fighter in any code to come to Australia to compete in a combat sport.
“I would bet everything I own he will be a household name in the Muay Thai world before the year’s end.
“Not only is he an incredible fighter but he is extremely marketable as well, very approachable, he has time for anyone, dances during his fights stirring the crowd into a frenzy.”
Petchtanong is now a 15 time World Champion.
Along with Kampan Santaweesook who unfortunately had his fight postponed due to a late injury to his opponent, Petchtanong now resides in Wellington NSW for the next four years with plans of making Wellington his home permanently, Bennett said.
Any person interested in watching the promotion and Petchtanong in action can view the show on Foxtel channel 183 (Aurora) on April 9 and 10.
The next conquest Muay Thai promotion will be held in Orange on June 16 and will have five professional world titles on the night, with Australia and the world’s best performing.
Fights such as Saiyok (Wellington Angel gym) versus Shaggy for 70kg world title, Bruce Macfie versus Nonsai Srisuk (Wellington Angel gym) for the 72.5kg world title and Kampan Santaweesook (Wellington Angel Gym) for the 67kg world title.
“With Petchtanong we have applied to the combat sports authority in NSW to allow him to compete for two professional world titles in one night on one promotion,” Bennett said.
“We would like him to defend his 60kg and 63.5kg world titles against two separate opponents on one night.
“If Petchtanong is allowed to do this he will be the first person in the world ever to attempt such a task.
“If allowed I will bet everything I own in the world, he will win both fights and two more world titles against any two fighters at that weight in the world.
“He is simply just that good,” Bennett said.
