Fighting talk

Peter Denman told The Phuket News “There are many great Blue Chip legends that are going to fight tomorrow. For example, Saenchai. I’ve been training on and off since I was 15. I’ve never had the opportunity to take it seriously until now because I was acting and it was an obligation not to fight whilst shooting. Now I’ve finished the soap, it’s a great opportunity. A dream come true. I’m feeling confident.”

Saenchai told the crowds “I’d like to pass on to Muay Thai fans… Tomorrow me and other boxers will present to you the art of Muay Thai which is Thai’s art and culture. Please come see the Thai Fight Phuket. I would like to see a lot of people tomorrow.”

Thai Fight Phuket will be staged at Laguna Grove. The gate will open from 4pm onward. Entry is free and tickets will be available for distribution at various locations in Phuket.

Polo-shirt option is available for purchase via Line Application @thaifightphuket, where the buyer gets two tickets per shirt.

Thai Fight Phuket will be broadcast live on Thai TV Chanel 3, 33, 28 and LINE TV.
