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.

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.
