It has been a year since Sinsamut Klinmee’s last win. After knocking out two opponents in his first two ONE Championship fights the Thai was beaten twice in a row by reigning lightweight kickboxing champion Regian Eersel.

There is no shame in losing to one of the top pound for pound kickboxers in the world, particularly when one of the losses only came by way of split decision. But Sinsamut proved last night that he still has too much for just about every other lightweight on the roster.

He took on Victor Teixeira at ONE Friday Fights 24. The Brazilian was coming off a highlight reel stoppage win of his own but Sinsamut took him out in under two rounds.

Reach advantage

It was clear from the offset that Sinsamut enjoyed a reach advantage and the 27 year old made the most of it. He fired off some solid looking low kicks before firing straight punches right through the Brazilian’s guard.

Teixeira tried to hide behind a hide guard but it was merely an invitation for Sinsamut to target the midsection with straight punches. A left hand put the Brazilian down, it was a flash knockdown but he was given a count.

It seemed to be the wake up call that Teixeira needed and he started to move forwards and fire off punches and low kicks of his own. The last few seconds of the round were much more even but the knockdown had given Sinsamut a big lead on the scorecards.

Jabs and elbows

Sinsamut was firing off jabs at the start of the second round. With Teixeira hiding behind the high guard again he switched up strategy and started stepping to to land elbows instead.

Teixeira was kept guessing and simply could not cope. The jabs softened him up while the elbows sliced him open and the Brazilian’s face quickly became a bloody mess.

He was continually eating straight punches and elbows with the referee asking the doctor to have a look at the cuts. He didn’t take long to decide that Teixeira was in no condition to continue with the finish coming at the 1:35 mark.
