Kulabdam Sor Jor Piek-U-Thai and Sangmanee PKSaenchaigym rematched in the main event of ONE Lumpinee 2. The fight went the distance with the former running out as a comfortable winner.

Sangmanee caused a slight delay to proceedings by turning up with long fingernails. He required a ringside trim before being allowed to compete in this bantamweight bout between two elite southpaws.

They traded low kicks at the start of the fight with Kulabdam starting to land left hands to the body and head. Sangmanee started to open up towards the end of the round but couldn’t connect and was on the receiving end of a hard elbow.

Clear advantage

Kulabdam consistently landed low kicks at the start of the second while using the jab to halt his opponent’s advances. He had a clear advantage over Sangmanee in terms of speed and started to land more punches to the body and head.

Sangmanee was happy to stay in the pocket and trade but consistently came off second best in these exchanges. Kulabdam knocked him out last time and never looked like finishing this fight but remained firmly in control.

Sangmanee did land some body kicks towards the end of he second round but was clearly behind at this stage. The fighters constantly needed to be separated by the referee in the third round after getting locked together in the clinch.

But with 30 seconds to go Kulabdam dropped Sangmanee with a left hand. The ropes stopped him from hitting the canvass and he avoided the count but it made the decision an inevitability.

All three judges scored the contest for Kulabdam who looked extremely sharp. Sangmanee was second best throughout against an opponent who clearly has his number.

Best of the restΒ 

Yodlekpet Or Pitisak and Silviu Vitez went to war in a catchweight contest set at 140lbs. The Romanian stared strongly but Yodlekpet rallied and caused a cut on his forehead.

It has been an action packed second round but unfortunately the doctor decided that Vitez was unable to continue. Yodlekpet picked up a $10,000 USD bonus for his efforts.
