LEVIN TRIUMPHS OVER KAOKLAI

27 Feb 2011


sellout crown for Battle Chelyabinsk

A packed arena of fight fans came to watch Russia's all-conquering Anton Levin challenge for the WBC MUAYTHAI Light Heavyweight crown against Thailand's Kaoklai Kaenorosing in "Battle Chelyabinsk" on 23 February.

Levin did all that was necessary to take the coveted WBC title dominating over the Thai champion in the grappling duels where Kaoklai directed the contest, but found the Russian extremely strong in-close and unable to outfox him.

Kaoklai fired a couple of elbows at close range but Levin kept clear of the dangerous strikes and, instead, concentrated on asserting his domination over the full five rounds even though there were times in the "winning" fourth round when Levin was forced to stretch himself to maintain his ascendancy.

Kaoklai had no impact with his low kicks to the legs and his body roundhouse shots were ineffective being frequently caught. The Thai champion also appeared a notch lower than Levin in the elite fitness department.

Levin holds world titles in all the kick fight disciplines, but said winning the WBC MUATHAI title was definitely the "crowing glory" in his brilliant ring sport career.
