This is just a short post to direct your attention to a great article that includes a great little interview with Sakmongkol, and an even better highlighting of his wonderful career. I really look forward to spending a year learning under him. He already expanded my fight and training awareness a great deal in two months. There isn’t a lot written about his career on the Internet, so definitely check this out.
Read the Siamfightmag.com article here. There are tons of photos from his storied past against both Thai greats and farang top names. Some of the interesting ones include (do click over to see the rest):

Muay ThaiSakmongkol

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
