A spirited performance from hometown favourite Charlie “Boy” Peters was not enough to claim what would’ve been the biggest win of his career against Muay Thai’s living legend Saenchai PKSaenchaimuaythaigym in the main event of Thai Fight: England vs. Thailand at the Indigo Arena at London’s o2 on Sunday evening.
The Double K gym trained fighter was never in any real trouble throughout the encounter and at times mounted some impressive offence against the 36-year old legend but his efforts were not enough to convince the judges at ringside to award him the decision.
In the co-main event Alex “Body Hammer” Bublea came up short against Thailand’s Ptt Petcrungreung who scored a decision victory over the Knowlsey’s gym trained fighter.
Ptt would dominate the fight from the beginning until the end of the without having his opponent in any real danger with Bublea showing flashes of the potential that has seen him climb to No. 3 in the UK Muay Thai ranking.
Overall Thailand would come out on top during a event which saw the visitors winning 7 of the 9 fights with only Salah Khalifa and Ben Hodge earning decision victories for the home team.
