FOUR YEARS AND GETTING STRONGER

17 Nov 2008


The WBC MUAYTHAI celebrated its fourth year with a huge convention in Chengu, China and the announcement of exciting calendar of events scheduled for 2009.

WBC President Dr Jose Sulaiman told over 400 delegates that the WBC MUAYTHAI had given the Thai national ring sport a highly respected world profile that had clearly differentiated real Muaythai from a plethora of kickboxing codes that used parts of the Muaythai rules and body weapons.

Dr Sulaiman said the WBC MUAYTHAI had grown around the world following an audience between His Majesty The King of Thailand, Dr Jose and WBC Vice-President and WBC MUAYTHAI Chairman, Pol. General Kovid Bhakdibhumi.

"The progress over the past four years has been solid and impressive," said Dr Sulaiman.

General Kovid chaired a a special day allocated for Muaythai promoters and representatives. He said the rankings and safety standards of the WBC MUAYTHAI organization had given the world's best Muaythai practitioners a worldwide stage and credible recognition.
The convention determined that the WBC Female Muaythai would commence immediately with the WBC's Jill Diamond appointed as the International Co-ordinator WBC Female Muaythai. Female fight data would be gathered for ratings and rankings.
Several promoters outlined their events scheduled which included a world title match-up of Super Middleweight champion Lamsongkram Chuwattana and Australia's John Wayne Parr in Jamaica next March . JWP has lost world title contests to Yodsaenklai and Steve Wakeling. He is hoping that it will be third time lucky in his quest to win a famous green WBC world champion belt.

Also announced at the convention was the scheduling of the biggest Muaythai event in Beijing next January that will be sanctioned by the WBC.
