MAX Muay Thai’s First Show Kicks Off Today in Surin, Thailand

The internet has been abuzz for the past few months about the debut of MAX Muay Thai. Despite being embroiled in legal controversy with Thai Fight, the Top King backed promotion is still planning to go ahead with their first event in Surin, Thailand.

In the main event” Muay Thai icon Buakaw Banchamek is scheduled to face American Malik Watson in what is scheduled to be a K-1 rules fight. Originally the face of Thai Fight, Buakaw has recently switched allegiances to the MAX Muay Thai organization as the new company figure-head. His K-1 rules fight with Watson may benefit the American fighter, and it should be interesting to see how well Buakaw adjusts to fighting kickboxing for the first time in years.

Also on the card, Aikpracha takes on rising German sensation Enriko Kehl in what is sure to be an exciting match-up. Kehl is coming off a third round spinning elbow KO of Berneung TopKing Boxing, and is capable of surprising anyone with his unpredictable spinning strikes.

In one of the best fights of the night, Kem Sitsongpeenong steps up to face Dylan Salvador, the young French fighter with recent wins over Saiyok and Kaew. He is undoubtedly one of the most quickly progressing young foreign fighters, and given Kem’s uncharacteristic sloppiness as of late (More than likely attributed to personal issues) it will be interesting to see if Salvador can pull off one of the biggest wins of his career, or if Kem is still a fish too big to fry.

Finally, Petchasain Seatranferry and Andrei Kulebin star in a four man, one night 67kg tournament.

The entire show will be broadcasted live on Channel 7, and streamed from Elite Boxing TV. Stick with us for Live updates and results.
