Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai, affectionately nicknamed “Moo” will be making his big debut on the world stage at Glory 15 in Istanbul Turkey. At 18 years old this young man made his way into the top ten of his respective weigh class at the Lumpinee stadium. Now at the age of 20 he’s stepping onto the world stage, and it will be a fight that you won’t want to miss.
Yodkhunpon, much like his gym mates, utilizes a heavy boxing and powerful leg kick style that doesn’t fit into the traditionalist model of Muay Thai.
The hand and leg kick style is a staple of the Dutch tradition of kickboxing, which we’re used to seeing in Europe and in the United States. However, the Thai adaptation of this style, utilizes all the power of the traditional Thai style kick, knees, elbows and foot work, which makes for a very fast pace and exciting style. I would also like to reiterate that not only is Yodkhunpon known for his knockout power and speed, but his wit as well.
Watching him train and fight, one thing I noticed was his high level of ring IQ. Even as Yodkhunpon is fighting aggressively forward, he has the ability to make his opponent miss and capitalize on his opponent’s mistakes. This mixed with his Knockout power, makes him a very dangerous opponent and a name to watch at Glory 15 and future events. I know I’ll be watching, and so should you!
