One of the highlights of the Thailand Muay Thai calendar is the Rajadamnern birthday show, held every year in December. This year is no exception with another star studded line up tomorrow, celebrating 73 years of fights at the iconic venue.
This year the honour of promoting the event has fallen to Petyindee promotions, headed by the stadiums youngest promoter Nuttadej Vachirarattanawong who caused a huge stir on the Thailand Muay Thai scene when he announced he would be joined in promoting the show by major global martial arts promotion ONE Championship.
The line up sees several of Petchyindee promotions star fighters matched up with opponents from rival Rajadamnern promotion One Songchai and from Lumpinee promoter PKSaenchai.
In the opening fight Boonlong Khlongsuanpluu resort faces Samingdet Nor Anuwat gym.
