I uploaded Kongtoranee Vs Gilberto Roman to YouTube, Payakaroon is brilliant in it, you know what he's like as an aggressor, compact, consistent and good at picking his spots. Against Khaosai he was forced to move backwards and counter, against Roman we really see his offensive ability.
As you say Flea, it's all about the baht. Sam A is seen as a very technical MT fighter and is under the "5 star roast chicken" banner
, which we know also supports western boxers, so I reckon he may have been sparring some of the Sakon guys snd looked good hence an oppurtunity to have a go and get a payday. I don't think it's anything to serious or he plans a permanent switch, just an opputunistic payday.
Thanks for the Kong clip, what's in the local Payakaroon water supply?
I'm not too familiar with Kong's sakon career so it's all new and excting to me so thanks. Great Youtube channel & I love the background write ups you give for the fights!
