Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai Glory 15

 


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!

The Fighting Pride of the Irish, the Son of Texas Michael “Chase” Corley

I’d like to take today to highlight IFMA, Toyota tournaments and Lumpinee Stadium and Challenger Asia Superstar, The Fighting Pride of the Irish, The Son of Texas…

Michael “Chase” Corley.

The talented young man that put his work in overseas and abroad returned home to Houston in recent years to mentor many Coaches and Fighters in the Houston area, as well as UFC rising star Andrew “Highlight” Craig, who’s Muay Thai and boxing picked his opponent apart in his latest showing.

There is no doubt that there is one man, which we all want to see fighting in Lion Fights, that man, is the modern day James “Cinderella Man” Braddock, that man is Michael Corley.

Watch the Highlight and you’ll agree.

Chris Jackson

(TFL) Chris Jackson new up and comer, that has made a name for himself here in the Houston scene with a couple of great performances in the ring. Starting with boxing, Chris is an exciting and aggressive combination style fighter with massive power in his hands,

Chris, how long have you been training and tell us a bit about your history?

(Chris Jackson) I’ve been training going on 4yrs now. I did lots of boxing and a little MMA, but recently became addicted to Muay Thai (Laughs)

(TFL) yeah, Muay Thai will do that (laughs) is a beautiful sport, but it’s also an adrenaline rush because the sport can be so fast paced.

Fill us in on Submission Boxing Academy and Kru Izzy?

(Chris Jackson) SBA has been operating going on 7yrs; Kru Izzy branched out to start “Izzy Camp” which has been open for a little over a year now.

(TFL) I fought Brannon a long time ago; Brannon is a tough and talented kid, so you all have some killers over there. We interview Izzy a while back, when he first opened. I like Izzy a lot; he’s a good guy and a great teacher who’s been fighting and training for a long time. Congratulations to him for his success with Izzy Camp.

(Chris Jackson) When comes to Muay Thai Kru Izzy is an awesome instructor. He very traditional and passionate about Muay Thai, which makes me feel good to be training under him and representing Izzy Camp Muay Thai.

(TFL) Definitely, I love how he’s always training next to you guys.  How long have you been focusing on Muay Thai?

(Chris Jackson) I’ve been doing Muay Thai for the pass 3yrs, but this last year it’s become my main focus.

1901717_641406445908746_1872512951_n

(TFL) what is it about Muay Thai that you enjoy so much?

(Chris Jackson) The culture itself and the respect that’s shared and encouraged amongst teammates, instructors and opponents. On top of that it’s beautiful yet brutal. We test ourselves daily, mentally, emotionally and physically.

(TFL) Chris, tell us a bit about your fight history and how your last showing went?

(Chris Jackson) I’ve only had one Muay Thai fight, against Jeremy Melbourne from Team Tooke. He was really good, came out with some technical combos. He sort of overwhelmed me, but I kept my composer, which is a gift of mine (Laughs). I realize I had to close the distance and hit him hard, which got me the KO of the night.

1743449_641406425908748_1525843672_n

(TFL) Wow, yeah Jeremy is no slob, he’s really good. I’m sure there is a potential rematch in the future, but what are you really focusing on right now and what’s your career game plan?

(Chris Jackson) Keep training and learning anywhere and from anyone I can. I’m looking to gain all the experience possible and fight as long as my body allows me.

(TFL) That is definitely a great game plan. That would be my advice to anyone seeking to have a successful career and possibly go pro in Muay Thai one day.

Is there anyone on your team that we should be on the lookout for?

(Chris Jackson) Oliver Jimenez, dude is improving daily. Angel Benavides, very hard nose guy and kicks like a mule. Benito Moreno, he’s hungry and should be a force in the future. Just to name a few.

(TFL) Yes sir, well keep our eyes peeled. Oliver did great in his last fight, what impressed me was his ability to say calm and composed after that first round. I will be on the lookout for those names on future fight cards.

Are you pretty excited about Muay Thai kingdom 2?

(Chris Jackson) Oh yea I’m hyped, even if I wasn’t on the card I would still be excited to see the match ups on this card.

(TFL) I know right, definitely a great card with a lot of talent. Anyone you would like to thank or send a shout out to?

(Chris Jackson) I would like to thank all my coaches and teammates for being behind me during this journey I’m on. Also, I would like to thank Michael Corley for bringing Muay Thai back to Houston.

(TFL) You and me both brother! Thanks for the interview Chris.
