Rajadamnern Stadium is without a doubt, not only the oldest stadium in Thailand but is a leader of muaythai events at the global scale.

The RWS World Series has become one of the most recognized and most outstanding events with Rajadamnern Stadium packed with fans from around the globe every Saturday night. This past weekend showcased some of the best male and female athletes from around the world participating.

The preliminary bouts began with an exciting performance from two aggressive nak muay ying with Kana from Japan versus Kaokanok from Thailand. It was Kana’s pure aggression and low kicks which won her all 3 rounds and the win by unanimous decision.

IFMA Youth World Champion, Ahavat from Israel, put on another stunning performance against SEA Games Champion, Petchmedmai from Thailand. Ahavat, who has made an incredible improvement in the last months, making his pro debut only last August at Rajadamnern Stadium and racking up a flawless undefeated professional record of 5-0 with 4 impressive knockouts displays the universality of muaythai and also the importance of the IFMA youth development programs. The young talent was able to pick apart his opponent round by round with his devastating low kicks and explosive hands and elbows. By the third round the young phenom finally found the sweet spot for his elbows and sealed the deal with his right cross to score him another KO victory.

Issei, Japanese national champion went up against Kongpayak, SEA Games winner from Thailand. Issei not only performed the most beautiful Wai Kru incorporating his Japanese flare, but also showed why he is one of the most outstanding fighters in the world by stopping the Thai with a massive left hook in the first round.

The Main event saw the Rajadamnern Stadium Female Bantamweight Title defense in celebration of International Women’s Day between two outstanding champions, both being multiple IFMA and WMC champions.

Monika Chochlikova from Slovakia and Thai superstar Somratsamee from Thailand went toe to toe for 5 rounds of world class muaythai, a celebration of true gender equality where the female athletes took the spotlight away from their male counterparts. It was the Thai superstar taking the points decision and defending her title successfully with the rematch already in discussions.

There were many celebrities in attendance. CEO of Global Sports Ventures, Bank Thainchai Pisitwuttinan, welcomed the strong IFMA and WMC delegation with IFMA General Secretary Stephan Fox, WMC Director Andrew Scott and IFMA Sports Director Janice Lyn supporting the IFMA athletes on this important International Women’s Day card.
