Press ReleasesMax Muay Thai Teams up with Elite Boxing
New Thai foreign Collaboration Ensures top quality international MuayThai. A major new player has entered the international muaythai arena after it was announced that a newly formed Thai company has teamed up with a leading international muaythai promoter to create a new event series. Set up by a breakaway group from the much criticized Thai Fight, MAX Muay Thai has forged a strategic partnership with foreign-owned but Bangkok-based Elite Boxing with the aim of producing top quality international muaythai events.
Unhappy with the way that muaythai was being presented under the Thai Fights brand, MAX Muay Thai will operate under a very different philosophy of “top competition faces top competition”. In contrast to the very one-sided matchmaking that characterized Thai Fight events, MAX Muaythai will match well-known Thai fighters against the best foreign fighters in the model that Elite Boxing has pioneered under its flagship Thailand VS Challenger Series.
While MAX has already secured some of the biggest name Thai fighters, including muaythai icon Buakaw Banchamek, Kem Sitsongpeenong, Petchasain Seatranferry and Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, it is relying on Elite Boxing to supply suitable opponents from around the world. For the upcoming event on the 6th May in Surin, Elite Boxing is happy to provide Enriko Kehl who has beaten Nonsai and Berneung in the 2 past TVC events held in Germany.
Having previously worked with Elite Boxing, MAX founder, Mr.Narit Wongprasertkan, indicated that he was more than happy to work with Elite Boxing again now to ensure fair and exciting match-ups. This latest alliance is in sharp contrast to the relationship between Elite Boxing and Thai Fight. The two companies were unable to work together because of seemingly irreconcilable differences over Thai Fight’s one-sided matchmaking and anti-foreign stance.
In addition to gaining access to Elite Boxing’s extensive network of leading foreign fighters, MAX will also benefit from the related products developed by Elite Boxing, not least of which is its EB-TV Internet video portal.
Elite Boxing’s co-founder Toli Makris spoke of his delight at the new arrangement when he said, “After all the work we have done to promote traditional muaythai and Thailand’s heritage to an international audience, it’s very pleasing to finally receive recognition and support from a Thai company. We look forward to working together with MAX, and we are delighted that they share our vision for taking muaythai to the next level.”
The first MAX Muay Thai event is scheduled for May 6 and will be broadcast live on Channel 7.
