First off, probably the most insane fight I’ve ever seen. Wow.
This fight is from the golden era and features two fighters, Parnpetch Muangsurin (black shorts) Changnoi Sor.Warnit (red shorts), who decided to swing at each other until one of them got knocked out.
Beaten to the punch
The first 20 seconds of the fight is relatively “normal”, until both fighters test their range with a lead hand palm, followed by a vicious cross. Parnpetch’s punch bridges over the top of Changnoi’s arm, connecting with the side of his head and knocking him down, while Changnoi’s punch slides underneath the arm of Parnpetch, hitting his chest area.
Going for broke
What happened next is some of the most prolonged, brutal exchanges of craziness I’ve seen.
Parnpetch went in strong to finish his dazed opponent, but Changnoi clearly hadn’t read the script. The two fighters went toe-to-toe for 50 seconds straight.
Parnpetch is the first out of the two fighters to exit the depths of craziness and begin finding his rhythm towards the end of round one. He places one arm across the neck of Changnoi and replaces it with a left elbow, before finishing the combo with a couple of powerful uppercuts.
Fight Tactics change-up
After being unable to put Changnoi away in the first, Parnpetch employs different tactics in round 2 and begins throwing long knees with his right. Here you can see Changnoi “pawing” Parnpetch’s right glove, a common orthodox vs southpaw tactic which prevents the opposite fighter from throwing their jab and creates an advantageous attacking position for the fighter whose hand is on top. Parnpetch baits Changnoi with his right and and uses the out-stretched arm and leverage for his right knee.
Changnoi charges forward once more, throwing heavy one-twos. Parnpetch counters with left (rear) kicks but takes serious damage in doing so.
Again, Parnpetch counters punches with kicks and knees but still gets caught. The swelling on his left eye is now evident.
Parnpetch attempts to move forward using two high blocking arms, perhaps to grab his opponent and knee, but Changnoi traps the arm and delivers yet more punishment to the face of Parnpetch.Follow MuayThaiScholar
