    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    Fair play to him, can't argue with the career that he's had. It's a shame that we never got to see him against Buakaw and Petrosyan, but hey, can't win 'em all.

    i feel bad fo him because he wasted so many years with thai fight and missed his chance for a kb title and real big money.

    it was this year or never for him,but it's better to retire then risk some worse injury, everybody knows who he is and has nothing to prove.
    i wonder if he'll stay in fairtex,i feel like he won't.

    Retirement fight vs Baukaw

    If he wins, he retires with more cash
    If he loses, he still gets paid, has the excuse of being an injured / older fighter, and leaves with his head high like Wlad klitschko

    Nah. Some of the Kunlun related peeps have indeed been teasing something but who knows what that'll be.

  15. What happened? Wtf you think happened Snub? He retired. I'm glad to know I'm the first person you think of when a legend like Yodsanklai retires tho. Its all love.

    That's some sad news, love watching Yod fight, that left kick and hand is a joy to watch, but at the same time, the guy is ancient for a Thai.

    I wish him a happy retirement.
     
  17. Damn one of my all time favs, all the best to him and his family if this is it.
