Thai Fight 2013 Tournament Results: Yodsanklai and Abraham Roqueni advance

There were high hopes for Lindsay, the only American in the tournament, after a decent showing against Yodsanklai this past July. To the surprise of many he was defeated by Samy Sana via decision and eliminated from the tournament. 154lb tournament favorite Yodsanklai scored a knockout victory and Spaniard Abraham Roqueni also scored a knockout to punch his ticket int he semi-final of the tournament.

  1. Chike Lindsay decent showing against Yodsanklai? Seriously? Yod made Lindsay's face look like it was operated by Dr. Frankenstein. A lot of heart Lindsay showed to never quit, but I wouldn't use the word "decent" when he had his face rearranged. Yod fought a typical Thai pace in that fight. Slow in the first, conquer and destroy in 2, 3, and 4, and relaxed and showing kindness in the last since he was well ahead.

    Are they ever going to have Buakaw vs Yod? It's like the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao of Muay Thai; it'll never happen even though every fan wants to see it.
