This annual celebration, “King’s Birthday Celebration”, in the sport of Muay Thai was held in the United States for the first time ever present by the American Muay Thai League from Annandale, Virginia. The event showcased 3 title fights as they warriors showed respect to their discipline the best way they could. By putting on tremendous fights. This event was sanctioned by the World Muay Thai Council (WMC).

In the main event, in a WMC 140 lb title fight, Phanuwat “Coke” Chunhawat defeated Carlos Lopez via unanimous decision. The action heated up midway through the first round when Coke delivered a series of punches and knees that put Lopez on the defensive. Lopez did a nice job of counter punching, but it was not enough as Coke won the fight on sheer guts and determination as he kept his jaw tucked and continued to push the pace and bust Lopez up on the inside. His combos, both kicks and punches, kept Lopez off balance and that is something Coke relied on.

In the co-main event, in a WMC 147 lb title fight, Justin “The Purple People Eater” Greskiewicz defeated Jeremy Carper via TKO in the third round. Greskiewicz was relentless and was a man possessed as he connected with hard shots throughout the fight. The fight ended when Greskiewicz landed a nice combo with a crushing right hand followed up a knee to the body. The right hand is what did most of the damage, but the knee to the midsection was just another example of Greskiewicz’s dominance as he scored with power punches all night.

With the WMC 135 lb title fight on the line, Ahmet Kayretli defeated Caleb Archer via unanimous decision. Kayretli was calculated and very technical as he kept Archer on the defensive for a good portion of the fight. Kayretli was quick with his kicks and scored to the midsection of Archer almost like a jab in boxing. Kayretli was also very elusive and would bounce in to score and bounce out before Archer had time to connect with a power shot of his own. It was a solid showing for Kayretli.
