Kongtoranee’s Stellar Defence

Here’s a great demonstration of how to shut down a powerful puncher by using clinical Muay Thai defence work and opportunistic striking. Kongtoranee Payakaroon (Samart‘s brother) was a 5x Lumpinee champion in five different weight classes and an incredibly smart technician. In this fight against another 5x Lumpinee champion Wangchannoi, Kongtoranee uses excellent distancing techniques like palming the gloves of his opponent and pushes to the body as well as lightning quick evasions.
