Yodlekpetch faces Neunglanlek at Rajadamnern birthday bonanza
The 74th anniversary Rajadamnern birthday show takes place tomorrow. This year’s show is promoted by Sitchefboontham promotions and, as an added incentive for the Thai fans, a brand new E series Mercedes Benz is up for grabs with each ticket bought going into the hat.
The show’s main event sees Yodlekpetch Or Achariya take on Neunglanlek Jitmuangnon. Both fighters have had a good year with the former winning the Knockout 135lb title in Japan.
Yodlekpetch’s only losses in the year came against Sangmanee Sathiangym and Neunglanlek, and he comes into this fight on the back of a decision win over French star Rafi Bohic. His opponent only registered one loss in the year, dropping a decision to Gulabdam SorJorPiekUThai at Lumpinee.
The co-main event is another mouthwatering match up with ‘The man who yields to no one’ Seksan Or Kwanmuang taking on Rungkit Morbestkamala, a young aggressive former Rajadamnern champion with a strong clinch and knee style.
Superlek Kiatmoo9 will give a 2lbs advantage to Superbon Teeded99 in their match, a contrast between the slick technical style of Superlek and the strong walk forward clinch and knees of Superbon.
The rest of the card is stacked with match ups that would easily be main events in their own right on any other night.
Five of the main fights will be broadcast live on Channel 5 in Thailand at 9pm (local time).
