Oron Deachkalon vs Stephen Meleady: Sumalee Savage versus Ireland’s Lumpinee “La Flama Blanca”
Twitter @Daniel Fletcher
Two known quantities clashed in Phuket, Thailand last night; as former top 10 ranked Lumpinee Stadium savage from Ireland, “La Flama” Blanca Stephen Meleady took on Sumalee Gym’s Oron Deachkalon. Several juicy bouts were reportedly scratched from the card, but with this fight alone the watching sex tourists of Patong saw some scrapping featuring fighters with notable names.
No spoilers – enjoy the fight.
Nice exchange of knees in the latter rounds; the kind of tit-for-tat that may confuse the western watchers but which is integral to the claiming of victory in Thailand Muay Thai; the victory attained by the totting up of more point-scoring shots, with knees to the body (and throws, sweeps, liverkicks etc) scoring more highly than punches, leg kicks and the like.
Such a shame that shitty Chang ring canvas is back; the replacement brought out for the WMC Queens Cup as far back as August 2012 – seventeen months ago – was far superior.
Winners drink Singha.
