Once Again, Lion Fight Promotions Brought a Wonderful Night of Muay Thai to AXS TV!
In the main event Muay Thai Legend, Petchtanong “Petch” Banchamek, challenged Smokin’ Jo Nattawut for his Super Welterweight title. These two legends put on an incredible exhibition of Muay Thai, showing us the speed and defense it takes to become a true champion. The two veterans went back and forth for all five rounds throwing everything they had at each other. In the end, the judges awarded Nattawut with the unanimous decision over Banchamek.
In the co-main event, Paul “Reaper” Banasiak and Chip “The Surgeon” Moraza-Pollard went to war for the inaugural Lion Fight Cruiserweight championship. We quickly saw that Banasiak’s height advantage was no match for Pollard’s reach advantage with the first round going to Pollard for his tremendously powerful strikes and punches. In the last few seconds of the fight, Pollard caught Banasiak with a huge kick, but didn’t knock him out, so the fight went to the judges. All three judges awarded Pollard with the unanimous decision, crowning him the first ever Cruiserweight champion.
Here are the highlights:
