RWS Muay Thai on May 6

The month of May will be action-packed for Muay Thai and it all starts on May 6. Throughout the month there will be the beginning rounds for the 135 lbs lightweight Tournament, 140 lbs Super Lightweight Tournament, 147 lbs Super Welterweight Tournament, and the 118 lbs female Tournament. All of these tournaments will start in May and conclude in the fall of 2023. These are the biggest tournaments in Muay Thai history giving away 20 million baht in total.

Fighters can also gain additional points by winning via first-round knockout. Two 100,000 baht bonuses will also be awarded for each event for the performances of the night.


And on May 6 it all begins with the Super Lightweight Division and Female bantamweight division. Fighting at this event is a former ONE Championship and Lumpinee Stadium world champion Capitan Petchyindee Academy who will face the Thai-born veteran Sakulchailek Pangkongpap. Sakulchailek is a dangerous knee fighter who will look to leave his mark on the Muay Thai world.

This tournament will also feature Nuenglanlek, a powerful knee-striker, against France’s Mathias Phountoucos. Choojaroen, a former Lumpinee Stadium champion, will meet the powerful Russian Aik. And, the highly experienced Petchuthong will look to earn a knockout when he meets Turkey’s Soner.

The women’s bantamweight division Group A kickoff will also be featured on the RWS Mauy Thai May 6 event. This group features two Thai strikers Kamlaipetch and Jitti. These two are looking to earn notable wins over Turkey’s Sevgi and Spain’s Paloma.

With the prize money, performance bonuses, and knockout bonuses, the RWS Muay Thai tournaments are expected to be fireworks. Combat sports fans can join RWS every Saturday on YouTube.
