Tanwa, again facing a larger Thai opponent, lost a close 5-round decision over his opponent.
Robin Merrill, fighting for the 2nd time for Tiger Muay Thai took on seasoned and experienced veteran Thonphet. Avoiding Thonphet’s dangerous and trademark leg kicks that ear a fighter down, Robin waited for his moment and caught Thonphet with a hard and clean elbow to the head dropping him to the canvas with a solid knockout.
As an added bonus, Robin had UFC veteran fighter Roger Huerta in his corner giving him tips.
Robin now moves to 2-0 with 2 KO’s.
