Top muaythai fighters of Thailand including Yodsaenklai Fairtex, Buakaw Por Pramuk, and Anuwat Kaewsamrit may compete in the Champion of Champions event in Jamaica this June.
The Champion of Champions this year will be held at the Montego Bay, Jamaica, on June 26, 2009 and will host bouts of top fighters from around the world including Thailand’s Contender Asia champion Yodsaenklai, two-time two time K-1 MAX winner Buakaw, and Lumpini and Rajadamnern champion Anuwat, according to Sakchai Tapsuwan, chairman of the Amateur Muaythai Association of Thailand (AMAT).
“They will also film the tourist attractions and the young muaythai fighters in Thailand in order to produce a documentary to be aired in Jamaica and many other countries. It will motivate the young to learn muaythai, which is not yet a popular sport in Jamaica,” said Sakchai.

Two great fighters, two great career paths, one big missed opportunity. It is not only part of fight sports, but sports in general. Those great match ups that slip through the cracks and never get made. The ones that would clarify who is number one and who is the better of the two greats. In Muaythai there are two such fights. One is WMC champ Buakaw Por. Pramuk Vs WBC champ Yodsaenklai Fairtex. The other is WFCA Champ Tyrone Spong Vs WMC and WBC Champion Nathan Corbett.

Fight of the Century!
The Gold Coast's multi-world champion Nathan `Carnage' Corbett will go head-to-head with Dutch-Surinamese hitman Tyrone Spong in Jamaica on June 26.
The bout, between two undoubted kings of Muay Thai boxing, has been talked about for more than 12 months but an agreement could not be reached.
However, it was Corbett ( pic ) who finally said `let's get it on' and agreed to not only move up from his fighting weight of 86kg to 93kg but to also fight under a 'no elbows' rule. Those two conditions are a huge concession by the Gold Coaster.
It is a massive weight jump and also elbows have long been a crucial part of the Carnage arsenal.

In possibly the highest profile fight of the night, Nathan “Carnage” Corbett knocked out Tyrone “King of the Ring” Spong in the third round. Spong could not get up to make the ten count, however, Corbett thought the referee waived the fight to go on and began to attack Spong with strikes. Because of this, the fight was ruled a “no contest.” It seemed quite unfair to Corbett who had already technically won the fight.
Incidentally, it was announced during the event that Ray Sefo and Clifton Brown will be the coaches on the Contender Asia Muay Thai Series 2 which will be filmed in Malaysia. It was also announced Duane “Bang” Ludwig will appear on the show. WOW!
