(Bangkok, Thailand)

A solid left hook catches the French muay thai fighter square on the cheek.

As mentioned last week, this pairing was one of the fiercer fights I've seen in my time in Bangkok which I vowed to return to at some point. For those of you that like to choose sides, the pasty guy in the blue trunks is a Frenchman while the big boy in the red trunks hails from Australia. As for me, I was rooting for the referee not to get accidentally knocked out in this clash of the titans. Blows landed squarely dozens of times as the crowd ooh'd and ahh'd at each spray of sweat flying through the air.

One punch lands, one misses.

It was a great fight but unfortunately, there had to be a loser. The French boxer in the blue shorts ultimately won the decision.
