Women are FINALLY allowed to fight at Lumpinee, but the current wave of COVID keeps pushing back their debut. Meet the first women scheduled to fight at the legendary Muay Thai stadium, the history-makers.
Niclas R. Larsen made sure his debut in China was not one to be forgotten. Often the underdog, this time at Kunlun Fight 71 was no different. “For most of my fights I’ve been the underdog and I don’t have a problem with that. I actually like to be the underdog,” said Niclas with a smile on his face.
Fresh off a victory over the weekend, Yodsanklai may be facing fellow countryman Buakaw later this year. Kunlun Fight says this match-up is in the works and according to Muay Thai Authority, the purse is supposedly $1,000,000 for what many are calling the fight of the century. However, some fight fans are skeptical as there have been many talks over the past 8-10 years about this match-up as well as other dream fights. To add to the skepticism, the last known time Buakaw was known to have fought a Thai was over 10 years ago in 2006 vs Jomhod Kiatadisak. But there is always a chance of this happening for real this time, so hopefully Kunlun Fight does not disappoint everyone who has their hopes up!
