Somrak Khamsing vs Victor Ngabe in Toyota Cup Finals

Muay Guy friend Victor Ngabe recently competed in the prestigious Toyota Marathon Cup over the weekend. In the final he faced the Thai boxing legend Somrak Khamsing. Somrak is famous for being the first Thai to win a Gold Medal in the Olympics for boxing and has recently come out of retirement to compete in Muaythai again. Lets see how the Max Muaythai champ does against the fan favourite Somrak.

Having now watched the fight, Somrak definitely won the fight, but it is interesting to note that he had an easy first fight and a bye in his semi finals, where as Victor had 2 hard fights prior to this bout. That being said, i am also not a huge fan of Somrak’s counter fighting style as it gives the impression of running away. Although it seemed to be the right thing in this fight. What do you guys think?
