Representing female muay thai will be the WMC Female Lightweight World Title between American, Angie Parr and European Champion Julie Kitchen from the UK.

The opening fight was for the WMC Welterweight World Title between the current champion Mosab Amrani from Holland and Andrei Kublein from Belarussia. Two-time IFMA World Champion, Andrei Kubelin was on top of his game and won the fight by unanimous decision.

Next up, was the Muay thai Against Drugs Title Fight between  Buakow Por Pramuk from Thailand and the Australian John Wayne Parr. This was a world class performance by both fighters but the younger Buakow seemed to have the extra bit of power at the end of each round and took the fight by unanimous decision. Both fighters gave an excellent show and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Jamaican fighter Clifton Brown versus Thailand’s Kaoklai competing for the WMC Super Light Heavyweight Title was up next. Brown  had the crowd on their feet. Kaoklai knocked down Clifton in the first round and from round two onwards it was Brown. After five rounds, Brown took the fight by unanimous decision.

The fight between European Superstar, Tyrone “King of the Ring” Spong and Nathan “Carnage” Corbett ended in controversy. First, Spong knocked Corbett down in round one. In round two, Corbett changed up his style and knocked down Spong. The referee gave a ten count to Spong but both fighters fought on and Corbett knocked down Spong again.

The WMC Lightweight Title match between Liam Harrison versus Thailand’s former Boxer of the Year, Annuwat was next in the line up.  From the beginning, both fighters went for the decision battling toe to toe. Annuwat aggressively attacked Harrison’s front leg throughout the fight. In round three. Annuwat defeated Harrison by TKO with leg kicks.

The fight  for the WMC World Heavyweight Title was between current champ Paul Slowinski and Patrice Quarteron from France. Slowinski fired his full arsenal of the eight Muay thai weapons giving a  class performance which stopped Quarteron in round three.


...The Tyrone “King of the Ring” Spong and Nathan “Carnage” Corbett bout...

The prestige fight between the European Superstar, Tyrone “King of the Ring” Spong and Nathan “Carnage” Corbett ended in controversy. First, Spong knocked Corbett down in round one. In round two, Corbett changed up his style and knocked down Spong. The referee gave a ten count to Spong but both fighters fought on and Corbett knocked down Spong again. The fight was declared a re-match but is under review at the commission and regardless this will be the re-match that the world wants to see.

We spoke to the referee who gave his description of the  bout.

" as I started  to give a eight count to the Dutch fighter and told the Australian fighter to go to the neutral corner, he didn't , as I got to 10, I told the Dutch fighter that he could not go on , as I could see he was hurt . I waved the fight over with my arms over my shoulders, and as I moved to see if the Australian was in his corner and to see if he saw it, I again waved my arms, and at the same time the Australian fighter jumped forward, over the side of my right shoulder and punched the helpless Dutch fighter.  I stopped it and went to the aid of the injured ko'ed  Dutch fighter and helped him to a corner as the ring got busy with all people who should not have been there."

 He stated that -  "he was then told to move to a neutral corner and wait for the judges decision and not say anything to anybody in the ring." 

he stated that -  "if they review the fight they will see that he was right."  He stated that.."  "The only mistake if any,  is that he gave a slow but methodical count first to the Australian  fighter who got knocked down in the start of the fight and then the same type of count to the Dutch fighter just to be fair to both of them, as it was a Championship title fight.."
