Michael, training at Tiger the last few months takes his first fight in Muay Thai against his opponet with 12 fights. Michael is still adjusting from a traditional Martial Arts stance to a Muay Thai stance, but keeps pressure on his opponent scoring with hard leg kicks aand a good left hook. Michael pins his opponent in the corner and lets looses a combination scoring with a big overhand right that puts KO’s the Thai fighter.
Elliot (Australia) returns to Tiger Muay Thai for his 2nd fight. Elliot faces a experienced opponent in Mohmai. Elliot looks great in the first3-rounds scoring well and showing good ring control. The more experienced Thai took the important 4th and 5th rounds to win the fight on points. Excellent fight !
