Battle Collossal V
WBC Muay Thai Battle Collossal V is coming to Perth once again...
November 1, 2008 will see Phon Martdee and Australian Muay Thai Promotions present the next installment of the Collossal series...
The main event looks like it will be Australian legend Greg Foley versus West Australian International Champion Dusan Salva.
Although it looks to be a non-title fight; the match up between WA’s Robocop Tananchai and Cambodia’s Chey Kosal will be sure to put the icing on the cake...
Also featured and confirmed, is Sidyodthong’s Daniel Smyrk up against Kung Fu mastermind ‘Machine Gun’ Marco Tentori.-Skill versus brazen power as it looks.
All of Perth are in hope of seeing the latest 15 year old sensation Toby Smith; beat down star Victorian “The Crazy Afghan”... We await the confirmation of this one...
The biggest question is: “Can Salva overcome the sheer reputation and then match the force of Foley in the ring? And will Tentori be able to fire once again as he steps up to a new level against one of Australia’s meanest mofos?”
Time will tell... and as some may have seen crappy mis-matched bouts in the past; this time our West Aussies aren’t going up against easy push-overs; they have a task and a half in front of them to say the least...
More info will be released soon...

The WBC Ultimate Super Contest
71kg (5x3) FTR
Dusan Salva VS Greg Foley
Greg Foley by KO in the first. Foley exploded from the first bell, middling a few to Dusans head within seconds. A standing 8 count was issued, followed by a predictable clean KO seconds later. Foley came out with some serious intent. All credit to him, his aggresion and skill was unmatched on the night.
Dusan, everyone is behind you. Perth is not disappointed in the least with you. We all know you’ll bounce back and have huge belief in your ability and skills. Fightings in your blood mate so learn from this whatever you can. Best of luck in the future, for we all look forward to witnessing your rise to the top.
WBC Welterwight Super Fight
66.5kg (5X3) FTR
‘ROBOCOP’ Tananchai VS ‘Cambodian Bull’ Chey Kosal
Both fighters were evenly matched for all 5 rounds. Robocop was strong! Very strong. To me he looked better than last time round. Split decision to Robocop.
WBC National Middleweight Title
72.5kg (5X3) FTR
Marco Tentori VS Dan ‘Hurricane’ Howe
What an even battle! Tentori and Howe was a mirror match (Mortal Kombat reference for anyone who cares) 2 mins into the 2nd round Marco is sent to his corner to be checked out for a cut(to his eyebrow?), but its minor and the fighters continue hostilities. Round 3 is another even contest, both fighters utilising the knees/elbows for a rough close-in contest. The forth goes on much the same. It has to be said here that the crowd was going absolutely insane for the machine gun for the majority of this fight, several chants being produced haha. But suddenly the fight is called off by the ref. Howe recieved a cut that was deemed a danger to the safety of the fighter and the win goes to Marco.
Tentori comes away with the win despite it being his first ever FTR fight!
WBC International Heavyweight Battle
95Kg (5X2) FTR
Eowin O’Droma VS Nato Laaulu
Eowin outclasses the seemingly larger Nato New Zealand native by the fifth round. O’Droma made a strong showing, exhibiting some very strong skills set and showing the crowd what a 95kg division fighter can do. Very impressive.
WPMF Welterweight State Title Defence
66.8kg (5x2) MTR
‘Bad Boy’ Ben Wells VS ‘Kandy Kane’ Kane Henderson
Had my money on Wells from the get-go and was shocked when Kane landed a beautiful Head kick to Wells that rocked the champ badly!!! Was telling everyone at my table how freakish his fitness and stmaina was. Damnnnn... just watched the head-kick again from my digi-cam and wow... that was solid. How the heck did Wells come back from that?!?! But he did. He fought back and defended his welterweight state title with skill, stamina and ticker!!! Nothing was stopping him tonight! Amazing showing! Go Ben!!!
Sidenote : Ben won fighter of the night. How couldn’t he?! He was a man possessed!!!
Phon, Thank you for a terrific show! Well worth the money and its just getting more and more spectacular every time. The service, the organisation and the girls are just the icing on the cake. Trully, whatever you’re doing, dont stop because its a great event! The fights are incredibly hard to pick a winner haha. You match them up so well.
Only disappointment: Not seeing young Bahn Silachai fight! lol! He was there on the night, I gave him a little cheer as he walked past but he merely looked confused haha!
