It’s a big week for our Muay Thai fighters here at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Training Camp Phuket, Thailand, with Talayhod TigerMuayThai, Jonny Betts, Marcel Gaines, and Eric Bradach competing in events in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur and titleshots on the line.
Talayhod, known at TMT as Nong, is currently ranked 6th in the Rajadamnern rankings in the 105-pound division. He recently defeated Ngaoprajan Chuwattana, who he also beat back in September. His opponent, Jumong Aikbangzai, is also ranked 6th but in the 108-pound division. The fight will take place at the legendary Rajadamnern Stadium on November 29.
Talayhod comes from a family of fighters and will travel to Bangkok with a possible titleshot on the line. With his brother Fahsuchon in tow, Talayhod will look to extend his winning streak and come back to Phuket with another victory under his belt.
Take a look at a documentary on Talayhod’s last fight in Bangkok last month.
Meanwhile, Betts, Gaines, and Bradach will compete in the KL Muay Thai Challenge 2012 “Clash of Champions” event at Stadium Titiwangsa in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 1.
Betts has recently competed in Bali, Indonesia while Gaines will look to extend his six fight unbeaten streak. Bradach, a veteran of several fights in the United States, will join the TMT after arriving in Phuket within the last two months.
All three fighters, constant fixtures around the camp, left for Malaysia on Wednesday and hope to also come back to Phuket in glory.
