BLACK LION HAS

Black Lion Singdum
A flawless and dominating performance by Black Lion Singdum Kiatmoo 9 (pictured) totally overwhelmed his archrival Nong O Kaiyang 5 Doa at Lumpinee Stadium.
Singdum (29) used masterful grappling, knee strikes and repetitious punching to retain his Lumpinee Lightweight title.
Nong O all but surrendered in the fifth round when he retreated from the fray with a broken and bloody nose.
The fighter from Burriram who's fought well over 200 fights at the elite level for an 80 per cent win record hopes that his big win will set him up for his best year in the ring.
In the other contests on the Lumpinee super fight event young gun Petchphanomroung Sangraphai (17) had a huge win over Ritthidetch Wanthawee.
Petchphanomroung comes from Burriram and trains with Singdum. While completing his high school he travels from Burriram to Bangkok to fight.
Already renowned for his hard grappling Petchphanomroung attributes his strong kicking for his sensational early rise to the elite level of Muay Thai in Bangkok.
Dieselek won his battle with F16 Rattanabundit with a classic head high KO kick in the third round.
But it was Petchbounchoo F.A. Group who won the crowd's applauds for his tough approach after he wore out Wanchaluam Aooddongmuang with some of toughest grappling seen at Lumpinee all year.
To Wanchaluam's credit he stayed with Petchbounchoo for all five rounds but there was no doubt that - in terms of hardness - Petchbounchoo was a notch better and got the judges'decision.
Still only 22 years of age Petchbounchoo first came from Ubon Thani to fight in Bangkok four years ago. Since then he has built up a huge fan base with an uncompromising hard grappling approach to ring war.
