This just in: Muay Thai world’s beloved trans fighter, Nong Rose Baan Charoensuk will have her shot at the currently vacant 115 lbs title at Rajadamnern Stadium on 2nd November.
Nong Rose is coming off fresh a 3-fight victory streak against Sueayai Cho Ha Phayak, Karun “Priewpak” Kaemlam and veteran Kompayak Singmanee, all at the famous Rajadamnern stadium. Legendary promoter, Songchai, now is pushing boundaries again by setting Nong Rose up for a title bout against opponent Petsuphan Por Daorungruang. The Super flyweight belt was previously held by Puenkol Tor Surat, last year’s Sports Authority of Thailand’s Fighter of the Year. Puenkol has since -been?- vacated of the title, and the reason remains unknown with some suggesting switching camps or moving up the weight class. However, Puenkol is actually designated to be the headlining act on the same night as Nongros’ title match, where he is set to face Pichichai from P.K.Saenchai Gym.
After October’s month-long quietude at Rajadamnern, November is all set up to feature an onslaught of exciting match-ups. Another high-profile fight to look for is the longstanding feud between Panpayak Jitmuangnon and Sangmanee Aumkatong who are meeting on November 6th for yet another standoff. The score now stands at 1-1 after Panpayak’s dominating win at September’s Samui Fight.
Other promoters have started rolling out their fight cards for both Rajadamnern and Lumpinee stadium as well. Some of the notable fights include Yothin FA Group vs Saknarinnoi Or.Auansuwan and Petchdam Petchyindee vs Surkim P.K.Saenchai at Rajadamern on 1st November, Phetmorakot Sor.Sommai vs Rodthang Jitmuangnon at Lumpinee on 3rd November.
