Good luck to your lad in September. Fighting twice in one month, that's the spirit!
Which one is he on the poster?
Remember most Thais are done by time they're in their early 20s especially if the chance of TV or stadium fights has passed them by. Looking at his nuber of fights for his aproximate age as well as his limited achivements this may have been the case hence his switch over to training. The gyms can be pretty ruthless in getting guys (expenses) out of their gyms if their finacial opportutnies are drying up. He's lucky to have the Sityodtong connection, proabaly opens the doors a bit easier if your a young ex fighter needing to make a living.
Oz may suit him well if he's creeping up the weight divisons anyway, proabaly alot more fight oppurtunity above 147 hence some good pay days. Good to be based in OZ for regional fights in Singapore, China, HK nad Malaysia to.
