Head Kick KO and 13 Stitches for 13 Coins.

On March 31, 2014 I fought in Rajadamnern Stadium against a Lithuanian fighter. The program sheet had him named Hunter 13 Coins Gym. He was about a forehead shorter than me but built like a fire hydrant. He had muscles on top of muscles in places I didn't even know people can have muscles. 

I fought another guy from 13 Coins Gym back in September, lost on points and figured I can redeem myself in Raja Stadium and in a skewed sort of way avenge my loss against a 13 Coins boxer. 

My opponent used a barrage of punches and low kicks. When I responded with a mid body kick he wouldn't block but catch it and dump me. I knew he wasn't going to be able to take many kicks to the short ribs so I willingly continued with the mid body kicks allowing him to dump me. He started to get desperate and used illegal dumps in order to hurt me with the slams. (Thank god I did 5 years of Judo). The ref gave him a warning, I got annoyed and went upstairs.


After the KO, I walked to his corner to check that he was functioning and not injured. He had a huge cut on his left eyebrow so they rushed him to the medics office to get stitches (13 to be exact). All in all a good night of fights and I feel extremely fortunate for the support from friends, family and teammates.
