There can’t be many fighters currently riding 65 fight winning streaks. But Saenchai PKSaenchaigym just can’t stop winning as he prepares to celebrate his 42nd birthday.

Saenchai won again last weekend. He beat Argentina’s Alan Yauny by decision at Thai Fight in Sisaket after what was a totally one sided contest.

Winning streak

Saenchai’s last loss came back in 2014 when he dropped a decision to Petchmorrakot Petchyindee at Rajadamnern Stadium. Since then he just hasn’t stopped winning.

The incredible winning streak can be attributed to two things. Saenchai is without doubt one of the best Muay Thai fighters of the century and the fun loving southpaw is definitely one of the most entertaining too.

Saenchai has also stopped facing top tier Thai opponents. He hasn’t been in with anyone from Thailand since that loss to Petchmorrakot but has faced some high level foreigners like Chadd Collins, Anvar Boynazarov and Julio Lobo.

Online following

Saenchai has grown a big online following and regularly shares tutorials. His specialty is advising fighters on how to use skill, speed and technique to overcome a size disadvantage.

During the peak of his powers Saenchai was so good that he was almost always expected to give up weight to opponents, meaning they would be taller and heavier than him. At one stage he was so far ahead of the rest of the fighters in Thailand that Lumpinee Stadium decided to match him with two opponents.

In the course of a single five round fight he took on Saketdao Petpayathai and Petchboonchu FA Group, beating them both. He won Lumpinee titles in five divisions and was named Sports Writer’s ‘fighter of the year’ in 2008 and 2018.

Easy fights

These days Saenchai tends to fight unproven foreigners who want to share a ring with one of the biggest names in the sport. It is entertaining for the audience as he gets to use his full repertoire of cartwheel kicks and unconventional strikes and techniques while cruising to comfortable wins.

Saenchai could never be accused of taking life too seriously and also frequently shares videos of himself dancing and playing pranks. But he is still an extremely active fighter and has got five bouts in already this year.

Most fighters would be contemplating retirement as they approached their 41st birthday but then most fighters aren’t riding 65 fight winning streaks. There is no sign Saenchai is going to quit any time soon and you wouldn’t bet against him eventually extending that winning streak to 100.
