Tiger Muay Thai goes 2-1 @ Patong stadium; Chad remains undefeated
Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp fighters went 2-1 at Patong Muay Thai stadium on February 9, 2009. Chad kept his undefeated record with a 3rd round KO of his foreign opponent. Chad took a hard elbow in the first round and was cut, but undeterred with blood dripping down his face, Chad moved forward attacking “Bangkok Rules” style we teach at TMT.
Fighting a heavier and much taller opponent, Chad took some hard knee strikes, but kept moving in and finally caught his opponent with a left hook and combination that dropped him for the count in his own corner.
It was tough 3 rounds trading kicks and hard shots before in the 4th round Veronica turned on the power and went to clinch scoring two hard knees to the solar plexus of Nongkarn leaving her unable to defend herself and forcing the referee to stop the fight.
Aon returned to the ring after a 6 month break to lose in the 4th round and will return to fighting 1-2 times per month in Phuket.
