    What rules is this supposed to be? ftr? I thought this bare knuckle thing was boxing rules. if it’s not ftr I can see Seksan going crazy in the exchanges and getting caught by massive punches (even though I can’t say I recall seeing anything by Lobov but I have to guess he is much much bigger than Seksan)

    I don't even think Artem has a punchers chance. Saeksan has a great chin.

    Artem could knock out Saeksan in the first round and literally nothing about the sport of Muay Thai will change whatsoever.

    Artem is the only fighter who can throw elbows with his fists. He's born for this shit.

    Guys his own size or even just slightly smaller would hurt him very badly, he'd have close to zero chance of winning.

    Against Saeksan there will be a 10 lbs difference which increases his chances slightly. In his latest fight, he weighted in at 146 lbs. Saeksan usually fights at 134-135lbs.

    Yeah, immediatedly after posting I saw some of his posts in that Tenshin thread. He has a hate-boner for MT it seems.
    Oh, I'm just joking. Artem is obviously going to lose, he knows it too I'm sure. He's never been good at dealing with kicks and his striking relies on counter punches for the most part, plus he has short arms so there's not much of a reach advantage there.

    I made the Saeksan highlights video. It was the first video i edited i did not really put effort into finding the best highlights of him. It does not do him justice.

    Here a couple of fights. All elite opponents.

    A couple of years back. He has not really deteriorated since then, maybe just slightly but he is still fighting the top thais.

    He fought in a Rise tourney last year and made it to semi finals under kickboxing rules, beat a former K1 champ in Taiga and gave the champ Taiju a good fight where he showed an iron chin and a lot of toughness. I'd say Artrm is fooked

    You don't need an account to see what he's posting so just have a look.

    News and old vids, meh. Not the same as going on YouTube and seeing newly recorded HD videos every week.
