Hey Vic liking the new avatar.....
I'm shooting blind here as I haven't seen any other Put Lorlek bouts, but I wouldn't read too much into all that movement. In the film it's grainy but he looks like a retired boxer, weak, loose and undefined with a pair of luv handles. I also think he's wary of the naturally bigger and fitter man the Jap.
It's not unusual for a retired Thai to come into the ring against a foreigner to earn a bit of a payday with the bare minimum of training or even none and survive or win on instict and craft. You see a similar dynamic alot in Thailand in bars where they have a small ring and short term foreigners who want to beat a Thai while they're in town fight smaller older unfit boxers who dance around alot to avoid too much punishment.
But maybe I'm wrong I haven't seen his other fights.
