“After I KO my opponent, I kiss him for sorry.” Here’s a short story of how “The Deadly Kisser” Sangtiennoi got his nickname.
What a beautiful human being, what a gentle soul. Sangtiennoi touched everyone that he met in his life. Heaven has gained another angel.💔 #RIPlegend

R.I.P. @sangtiennoi_sor_rungroj 😭💔
Ajahn Sangtiennoi was one of the first golden era legends featured on the Muay Thai documentary series. He was genuine, unassuming, and showed me so much kindness and warmth in the short time that I spent with him.
I am absolutely heartbroken to hear news of his passing today. Rest in peace, P’ Tu. Your legacy will live on forever🙏🏼.

“Fighting is dangerous. You can get cut, feel pain, and be injured.
Likewise, living is dangerous. You can get your feelings hurt, be disappointed, or have your self-worth crushed.
But if you are unwilling to accept the lows in life, you cannot fully appreciate the highs. If you’re afraid of pain and never take chances, it is not really living.
Better to take chances and stumble trying (once you get over the pain, you’ll always have good stories to tell at parties!), than to never have used the gift of choice that life has given to each of us.
Life is temporary, life is unpredictable. Your job is to pay 100% attention to the present moment. Whatever that has happened before, whatever that is yet to happen, that is not your responsibility.
Good or bad, appreciate each moment of this unique gift, and learn the lessons it is teaching you. Once the moment is past, you can never have it back again.
What are you holding back your heart for?”

Kru Chok circa 1996 😆👆What does it take to win the prestigious and elusive seua samart เสื้อสามารถ (golden jacket) and become champion at Rajadamnern Stadium in Bangkok?
10 straight wins. That is what it took for Kru Chok to win the golden jacket. Trust us when we say this was no easy feat, especially in the golden era of Muaythai.
Kru Chok’s opponent, whose name is Poonsawat Krantindaenggym, had also been on a large winning streak at the time prior to this fight. He was also more famous than Kru Chok at the time.
Poonsawat is Muay Khao fighting style, being a forward fighter with strong knees and punches. Kru Chok is Muay Femur style, so being very technical with a high fight IQ, preferring to score by defending and countering.
Because of his Muay Femur style, Kru Chok said he likes to fight forward style fighters. He says it makes it easier for him in the fight if they are forward. Kru Chok said he hated fighting Muay Femur style fighters though because, “very headache”, trying to figure out how to outsmart them and win.
We think it would have been a very exciting fight to watch! What do you think?
