Simon Marcus defeats Kaoklai and Suriya Prasathinphimai defeats Chike Lindsay in Thailand

There was some Muay Thai action at Central World in Bangkok for Suk Wan Muaythai Naikhanomtom (National Muaythai Day) today. Canadian Simon Marcus and Thai Kaoklai Kaennorsing were the night’s main event. The bout was one sided in favor of Marcus. He pressed the action, out struck Kaoklai and out worked him in the clinch. Kaoklai seemed fatigued after the first round and Marcus simply kept scoring points. In the end Marcus walked away with an easy decision victory over Kaoklai.

American Chike Lindsay and Suriya Prasathinphimai fought in the night’s co-main event. Lindsay was game, but Suriya was just a step ahead the entire time. Having competed in the 2004 Summer Olympics for boxing, it was expected that Suriya’s hands could make the difference. He used some solid boxing mixed in with his Thai boxing skills to outpoint Chike Lindsay and take home a decision from the judges.

Results:
Simon Marcus def. Kaoklai Kaennorsing via Decision
Suriya Prasathinphimai def. Chike Lindsay via Decision
The Start I-Seadaw def. Alex Sasiprapa via Decision
