I can see how odd that looks now I read it back and understand your question Spidey.

Gai Yang Ha Dow is a very popular brand of pre roasted chickens sold all over Bangkok fresh of the spit by small vendor franchises on the street. Over the last few years they've become heavily involved in sponsoring MT and western boxers and have their own gym. Pongsaklek for example was sponsored by them and so is Sam A amongst a load of other top talent.

Gai Yang Ha Dow translates as 5 star roast chicken. So as you know in Thailand a fighter adopts the name of his gym or sponsor so you get guys called 1st name followed by 5 star roast chicken or Pongsaklek 5 star roast chicken, Sam A 5 star roast chicken. Sounds nuts I know but that's why we all love Thailand, anything goes......

Intact of you rewatch some of Pong's last boxing fights notice the cartoon chicken on his shorts well that's the logo of the company.
