We’ve noticed that there was a pretty big chunk of fights which never made it to YouTube, existing only on Facebook in their live stream version, so I’ve made a project of voicing over those fights, fights 178-204 in 2017. You can find my complete record here, if interested in following along. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you don’t want to miss any of these commentaries.

In commentaries I talk about my experiences in and around the fight, my thoughts on how the fight is going tactically, praise for all the good things my opponent is doing, and deeper themes of Muay Thai practice. In this fight as it happened that we found ourselves in a lot of 50/50 positions in the clinch I was able to talk about how to score clinch in your mind, as a viewer, and the small things that one can do to win those 50/50 positions.

Thanks for being a supporter, and someone following my fight career. I hope you get as much out of these throwback commentaries as I do in doing them!

Muay Thai

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
