Who is Saenchai?

Saenchai who was formerly known as Saenchai Sor Kingstar was born on July 30, 1980.  He is a Muay Thai fighter from Thailand.  He is widely considered to be the greatest Muay Thai fighter in history.  He was able to win the most prestigious Muay Thai title by winning the Lumpinee Stadium title in 4 different weight divisions and mostly winning against larger opponents.

Saenchai would often be forced to find larger opponents to find those willing and worthy to fight him.  Between 2003 and 2014, he was only defeated twice when the weights were similar.  All other losses were against opponents who were much larger.  When one looks at his fights against foreign competitors, the skill gap is much larger and he will go as high as 147 lbs which is over 15 lbs more than his best weight to fight at.

Saenchai Fight List

 Saenchai was drawn into the world of Muay Thai at 8 years of age.  After seeing his friend's older brother win a prize for a Muay Thai match, he decided to begin training.  After only a week of training, he took his first match and won the equivalent of $1 in prize money.

Saenchai began fighting in Bangkok when he was just 14 years of age.  At this time he had transferred to Kamsing gym.  Kamsing paid 300,000 Baht for the transfer fee.  This is the reason that Saenchai's ring name was Saenchai Sor Kamsing.

After about two years of training, when Saenchai was 16 years of age, he won the illustrious Lumpinee stadium championship at super flyweight.  Two years later, in 1999 he won the title again when he was 18 at bantamweight.

In 2002, he turned briefly to boxing and earned the PABA title after defeating Rud 4K Kevkatchewon in 2003 for the title.  His time in boxing would be short-lived as he transitioned back to Muay Thai again in 2004.

Saenchai would eventually leave his home gym of Khamsing over a disagreement regarding fights in Japan.  He would transition to Kingstar gym.

In 2009, Saenchai fought two different Muay Thai fighters in the same bout at Lumpinee stadium.  During the first three rounds, he fought against Petchboonchu FA Group.  During the fourth and fifth rounds he fought against Sagetdao Petpayathai.  Saenchai was awarded the unanimous decision after this fight.

In March of 2010, Saenchai knocked out Tetsuya Yamato from Japan to win the vacant world lightweight title sanctioned by the Muay Thai Association of America.  Saenchai would knock out his opponent with a left high kick.

In 2011, Saenchai was signed by Yokkao to be a sponsored fighter of the Yokkao Fight Team.  In 2012, Saenchai would fight at Yokkao Extreme 2012 in front of an audience of over 12,000 spectators.  The fight ended with notes of controversy as a headbutt by his opponent Fabio Pinca had gone unpunished and the opponent's nearly 30 lb weight advantage helped Pinca wear Saenchai down in later rounds.  Saenchai's streak of over 20 victories was snapped with this fight.

With over 350 Muay Thai matches and a career that has survived the Covid pandemic and shown him to come back dominant, Saenchai continues to be an inspiration to Muay Thai fighters worldwide.
