PETCHTHAILAND CAPTURES GREEN

9 Aug 2019


The day Friday, August 9, 2019, will be a day to cherish for Thailand’s young rising star, Petchthailand Moopingaroijing, as he was crowned the World Boxing Council MuayThai super-flyweight champion of the world.

Petchthailand overcame gritty Japanese star, Issei Ishi, over five exciting rounds of action at Bangkok’s mecca of MuayThai, Lumpinee stadium, to claim the vacant global championship strap.

The contest kicked off a night of elite MuayThai action at the stadium, the fight was broadcast across Thailand television, via True4U. Those in attendance and for those watching on tv, the bout lived up to the expectations of the one to watch!

Issei entered the contest looking to overcome Petchthailand’s smaller physical stature with barrage after barrage of heavy punches and leg kicks — all of which were soaked up defensively by the champion to be.

Petchthailand used his upper echelons clinch skills to subdue his opponent, setting up his offensive work landing a host of perfectly-timed body kicks and elegant knees to either side of the lower half of Issei’s body — from the clinch.

The final bell rang. It was agony for Issei and ecstasy for Petchthailand as all three judges scored the contest to new champion: 49-48, 49-47 and 49-47.

On behalf of WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC MuayThai President, Pol. General Kovid Bhakdibhumi, and the entire team at the WBC, we would like to congratulate Petchthailand on his night of WBC global glory.
