Alain on The Contender Asia - Episode 5

Friday, February 22, 2008

Episode five featured a match between Soren Mongkontong and Alain Sylvestre. A brutal encounter which Soren won after the fight was stopped due to a cut to Alain's eye. Was a very interesting match to watch - after watchin this fight I became an instant fan of Soren's fighting style, which is very traditional with heavy use of knees / elbows. This match was a good reminder of the damage that can be caused by the eight point fighting style of Muay Thai.
