WBC PRESTIGE: CHASING GLORY IN TOKYO

28 Mar 2018


On Sunday the 8th of April, somewhere amidst the chaotic beauty of the wondrous city of Tokyo, two warriors will go to battle for the right to be crowned the WBC MuayThai mini-flyweight (105lbs) champion of the world.

The contest will take place at the Differ Ariake Arena between Japanese boxer Nadaka Eiwa Sports (19-4) and Thailand’s Tuangtong Singmanee (54-18) — Nadaka is currently ranked number 8 in the WBC world rankings, whilst Tuangtong is ranked number 9, in the mini-flyweight division.

In recent times 17-year old Nadaka has based himself in the home country of the sport of MuayThai, taking eight impressive victories at the famed and storied Rajadamnern Stadium in Bangkok.

Nadaka stated this week that he is really happy and honored to get a chance to challenge for a coveted WBC Muaythai World Championship, that it has been a long-held dream of his to follow in the footsteps of great Japanese fighters who he respects very much, such as Genji Umeno and Tetsuya Yamato who have both previously owned a WBC title. He further stated: “I will do my best !!! So please cheer for me…”

Tuantong for his part trains out of Singmanee gym in Southern Thailand — over the last two years he has matured into a fine young fighter raking up quite a few impressive wins at the world famous Lumpinee stadium and also at Thailand’s number one MuayThai TV stadium, Channel7. Speaking to the Singmanee gym fighter this week, he stated “I am proud and honored to not only represent my family and gym in this title fight but also my country, and the sport of MuayThai.”

The stage is set for these two young modern day fighting gladiators to show the always educated Japanese fight fans the remarkable spirit of the fighting art of MuayThai.

The final words:

Will the Japanese combatant prevail and become the new WBC mini-flyweight champion of the world, or can Thailand’s young gun conquer Nadaka in the upcoming showdown in the Land of the Rising Sun?
