Manachai Delivers Smashing Performance in Italian Debut!
Manachai has done it again, doing what he does best - smashing faces and chopping legs! The young Muay Thai wrecking machine made his Italian debut over the weekend in Milan on “The Night of Kick and Punch”, a long-running event by promoter Angelo Valente. In the pre-fight weigh-in, Manachai recorded a weight of 65.5kg compared to his opponent, Nuriel Glorian Cauli’s 65.9kg. The fight was originally decided at 65kg but subsequently changed to 66kg as agreed on by both parties. For his Italian fight debut, Manachai delivered exactly what the audience ordered: a smashing performance of Muay Thai at the highest level. Right from a graceful display of the pre-fight Wai Khru ceremonial dance, Manachai exhibited Muay Thai in pure authenticity. Nuriel attempted to take the fight to the clinch right from the onset and the battle was fought with a flurry of knee exchanges. Once the clinch was disengaged, Manachai took to unleashing a multi-hit combo of hard punches, elbows and low kicks to cause serious damage. The fight was ended in rapid fashion via referee stoppage in round 1 after just 2:35 minutes and Manachai was declared the winner by TKO. All the intensive training at the YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok has certainly paid off. The Italian debut win adds to Manachai’s impressive winning streak that includes victories at YOKKAO 26, twice on All-Star Fight, in Surin on the YOKKAO-PKSaenchai co-promotion and at the elite Lumpinee Stadium. The young YOKKAO fight star is in amazing fight form at the moment and is unstoppable in the ring. On the cards right now, Manachai is set to face young kickboxing wonder Mo Abdurahman at the YOKKAO Next Generation Southampton on the 29th April. More fights are being arranged for Manachai and will be announced in the days ahead. For all the latest news and videos, follow YOKKAO on social media where the action is at.
