Steven Wakeling Becomes New WBC Muay Thai Champion
By Mike LNg
The results of the January 8th, 2011 Champions Club 6 card are in. The event was held in Tipp Plaza in an open air venue in Pattaya, Thailand. Steven Wakeling wins the WBC Muay Thai Super middleweight title from incumbent champion Jaochalam. Apparently, suffering no shortage of ability from his recent layoff from Muay Thai, Wakeling fought and defeated the highly regarded Jaochalam enroute to a 4th round stoppage from knees. The TKO came swiftly and as a shock to many.
In the 4 man tournament the results are as follows:
1-KING “4 Man” Muaythai Tournament 70Kg MAX
Andi Rogner (Ger) VS Dan Magnusson (Swe)
Rogner defeats Magnusson via KO.
Yacine Darkrim (Fra) VS Saentiennoi (Tha)
Saentiennoi defeats Dakrim.
1-KING “4 Man” Muaythai Tournament 70Kg MAX Final
Andi Rogner (Ger) VS Saentiennoi (Tha)
Rogner defeats Saentiennoi on points.
Muaythai Super Fights
Matthias Pattaya Combat VS -58Kg Urkam Sasiprapa Gym
Matthias defeats Ukram on points.
It looks like the new weight is treating Steven Wakeling well and I look forward to what may come in the future from him.
