7 November 2009

The popularity of the entertainment promotion only known as "WBC Muay Thai Battle Collossal" has grown from strength to strength since it's inception in 2007.  A concept devised by promotor Phon Martdee, and branded "Battle Collossal" by his son Pamorn, has seen Perth fight fans returning time and time again witnessing some of the grittiest match-ups to date.

The series has seen the appearance of big name stars such as Oley Sakonpetch, Dusan Salva, Greg Foley, Flip Street, Shannan Foreman, Robocop Tananchai, Marco Tentori, Jason Lea and many more since part one in ‘07. In it’s twentieth year Promotor Phon Martdee promises the future of ‘a new breed of fighters in a contemporary generation of champions’ with many new hard hitting names coming through the rankings.

Battle Collossal 8 will once again see WBC National Champion Oley Sakonpetch (AKA The Smiling Assassin) taking on France’s Champion Alexandre Ludovic who has had victorious in over 32 bout verses some intensely competitive Thai fighters in the Home Land of Muaythai!

The original match-up where Oley was to face New Zealand’s Sailom Sasiprapa was scratched after Sasiprapa shattered his foot a month out in sparring preparation.

Nevertheless Ludovic with a wealth of Muay Thai experience will come into the bout with a weight advantage and should put Sakonpetch to the test over five rounds under full Thai rules.

Phon Martdee’s new apprentice Chris ‘Mr. TKO’ Garner will step into the ring up against Supremacy Promotions star ‘Kandy’ Kane Hernderson in a full Thai Rules bout which will be "Knock-out or Be Knocked-out." As Kandy Kane hits as hard as a sledge hammer and Mr. TKO kicks and punches as hard as a steel baseball bat. The bout scheduled for five gruelling rounds. The question: Who will be left standing at the final bell?

Also featured will be Perth’s Irish giant Eoin (Pronounced: Owen) O'Droma who will be taking on Foxtel featured Lithuainian Andres Tamleht "AKA Indy" from Queensland. Indy who is slim though solid is tall and being Lithuainian, is known for being naturally hard to take down.

O’Droma back after a shin injury is looking stronger than ever with improved hand and knee skills. Battle of the Big Boys will see another KO or Be KO’d style bout...

The hottest four ladies in Australia labelled "Australia's Muay Thai Super Women" will all be featured on the one show with Theresa 'The Hurricane' Carter smashing leather with Victoria's Nicole Brolan and Perth's new starlet Melissa Norton pushing her boundaries against Sarah O’Connell from Johne Wayne Parr's Boonchu stable in Queensland.

In other bouts "Super Boy" Mitchell Seth will face off against South Australia's Scott Hughes who is coming off a narrow loss to the 16 year old supercharger Toby Smith.

And the return of Hard hitting Jake "The Tear" Tomlinson going up against Queensland’s Toi Vio.

The under card will be short but sweet with Phon Martdee sourcing only the best to make the cut of this turbo charged fight card. Face offs will be closer than ever and the sweat and leather will be put together with some of the best light, sound and pin up girl entertainment to offer...

Don't Miss it, WBC Muay Thai Battle Collossal VIII,  the last show until March 2010!

WBC Muaythai Battle Collossal VIII (8) Saturday, November 7.2009 Perth, Western Australia

Phon Martdee’s Australian Muay Thai Promotions put on another spectacular show for the last of the 2009 series, putting on a card which saw a number of local stars taking on a list of interstate and overseas opponents.

The anticipated main event saw West Australian resident Thai star  Oley Sakonpetch,who is the current WBC National super lightweight champ,up against French champion Sohanne Bengana. Bengana who lives and breathes Muay Thai in the origin country of Thailand came into the bout boasting a record of 32 fights, 26 won by K.O. and 6 of them lost by way of K.O. A noticeable record amassed in only just over one year and all against Thai fighters.

The Frenchman, built like a pitbull was seen as a threat before the bout, although the people of Perth had faith in their Thai ring master, the man only known as ‘The Smiling Assassin’.

From the opening bell Bengana fired with some rushed low kicks, Oley, cool headed opted for a calm approach, dodging and evading, countering with only solid cracking kicks to the midriff. Within a minute, the Thai could read the Frenchman’s attacks, letting low kicks go wayward in midair. After Puttin on a dodge and move show for the crowd, Oley decided it was time to pull the pin, landing a polldriving right cross to the solar plexus, baited by a fake left jab. Inevitably Bengana went down but staggered back up, recieving a standing count, and continuing, Oley pounced drilling the stomach once again. After one more count and a failed last effort to attempt to land a shot, the Thai hammered the final nail into the Frenchman’s coffin, sending Bengana airborne into the corner and face down on the canvas with a left body punch. Referee Brad Vocale had no choice but to end the fight, declaring Oley Sakonpetch the winner by K.O. within the first two minutes of the first round.

The semi main event saw The Pride of Ireland Eoin ’The Irish Hammer’ O’Droma up against Aslarn Magomedov’s Allar ‘Indy’ Ahtman. Through the wai khru,The chant of ‘Eoin’ erupted throughout the stadium. From start Indy fired in some nice leg kicks which stung the legs of the Irishman, O’Droma retaliated with some crafty hand and leg work of his own. In a flurry of exchanges, O’Droma landed a solid body hook followed by a knee to the stomach which crumpled Ahtman into a heap. Upon the referee applying a count, Ahtman managed to find his feet, only to be floored once again and for the last time by a set of gut munching knee strikes. Eoin O’Droma the winner by K.O. and the new W.P.M.F. Australian champion.

The match everyone had been waiting for was between the best two super welterweights in Perth-Chris ‘Mr. TKO’ Garner versus ’Kandy’ Kane Henderson for the W.P.M.F. West Australian champion.

From round one, the two went hammer and tong throwing shots that would have floored any lesser competitor. Kandy setting up with timed kicks and Garner trading with chopping the lead left leg and solid straight punches. It was neck and neck for four rounds until the final, when Kandy began to tire and got caught in a corner, Garner unloaded with everything he had, punching his heart out to the delight of the crowd who were on their feet. The bout ended at the final bell and at the decision, one judge had called the bout a draw,the two other judges awarding the win to the new champion Chris Garner.

In other bouts, Perth’s ‘Super boy’ Mitchell Seth beat Adelaide’s Scott Hughes in a thrilling skilled bout between two of Australia’s hottest welterweights, Victoria’s Nicole Brolan upset Perth’s Tiana Caverly in a nail biting trade for trade styled fight, young starlet Melissa Norton beat Goldcoast Boonchu star Sarah O’Connell which saw more elbows thrown than all of the mens’ fights put together!,
Queensland’s Ricardo . . . . upset Perth heavy hitter Jake ‘the tear’ Tomlinson by head kick in round one and Johnny Torong drew with Joey Abela from Adelaide.

A great show which had thrills and spills galore!
Stay tuned for March 27, 2010 when Perth hosts the 67kg 8 Man Eliminator on Battle Collossal 9 at the new Curtin Stadium!
