I fought Phet in my 14th fight and lost to her in a technical game.  For this fight I knew I had to put my strength on her and I got better with that as the fight goes on, but I definitely need to get more aggressive earlier in fights – still a slow starter.

My corner was pretty astonished at the resulting decision of this fight and I was told that the draw was because I’m scheduled to fight her again on the 13th and they want a third fight.  I’m not clear how my winning would have in any way obstructed a third fight happening, but I also don’t think I outright won this fight, even if a lot of the audience and all of my camp felt that way.  I won fourth and fifth, which are important rounds, but if I’d fought round three the way I fought the last two I think it would have been mine without question.

Rematch again on the 13th of July.  Much respect to my opponent – she’s a good fighter and I expect our next match will be nasty.  She was throwing elbows (albeit ineffectively) in this fight and I kneed her head more than once (also ineffectively since the ref broke it and she fought on – I think if I’d been more decisive or brought the attack up during those knees he wouldn’t have broken it, but me continuing to knee her head without knocking her out – like a slow bludgeoning – would have been gross).  We’re both going to be coming into this next fight with the intention of getting square.

100+ FightsChiang MaiKalare

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
