    Think he's still more of a prospect, but it looks like Kongtoranee Sor Sommai is having a good run of success. I seem to remember him being mentioned on here as someone to keep an eye on.

    Today at Raja:

    Yeah he's doing well but is anyone having a run like Puenkon and Pet U Thong did last year? Have been too busy to follow mt closely in the latest months but i can't think of someone that remarkable...

    No, but Pet Utong's had his best wins in 2017, not last year, just before the fighter of the year award was given out and there is still a fair chunk of 2017 left.

    Maybe, Phetmuangchon Por. Suantong. I think he's 6-0 this year and has beaten Sarawut and Rungnarai back to back.

    I think these are all Phetmuangchon's fights, thus far:

    To the muay thai experts: do you know about Superbon's stadium fights? Was he an elite fighter or just decent like Sittichai?

    Depends what you mean by elite. He was elite, for at least a while when he was active in the stadiums, he fought some of the best fighters of that time: Saenchai and Singdam for example. But I don't think he stuck around for very long, so I don't know if he could have been considered one of Thailand's very best fighters. To be elite in the way Sam-A, Singdam and Saenchai were or even the way someone like Wanchalong or Palangpol or Panpayak is, you have to be at it for a while and be consistent. I'm not sure how long Superbon would have been an elite stadium fighter for, at least a year or so.

    Definitely better than Sittichai, though.

    I also don't know how big Superbon's promoter was, that can often give you a sense of their standing. Most of the recorded fights on wikipedia list Phetsupapan as the promotion he fought on. Right now I wouldn't consider Phetsupapan to be one of the top 5 promotions in muay thai, but it may have been different back then.

    I think Sittichais muay thai level is underrated though. His body type is just not built for the lower weight classes and he grew big pretty fast. Not on the level of Yodwicha, Manasak but by i don't think his stadium accomplishments represent his talent and ability fairly
