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.
His mobility is very good here as well :


But yes...I think perhaps you have a point because I would say he was moving even more against the japanese fighter....
