Muaythai booming throughout China

Yet another major event is being held in China following the 2010 SportAccord Combat Games, under patronage of the IOC. Muaythai is growing throughout China at an exponential rate as a consequence of the Thai-Chinese collaboration and the MOU that was signed between the two countries in order to promote sports and cultural exchange.

The Chinese National Team is being faced to the best Professional Muaythai fighters from around the world on the 11th of June, 2011 at the gymnasium of Hefei Olympic Sports Center.

China-Thailand Championship is the only official competition between China and Thailand and after 10 years of development, it has now become the most famous brand in fighting and has gained great reputation from the whole world.

The competition is an international class A tournament, which is authorized by General Administration of Sport of China, and sanctioned by the WMC, the Wushu Management of the General Administration of Sports of China, and the Government of Hefei, and will see five title belts being awarded.

This is the China-Thailand Championship final and a great rematch of the first event held on December the 18th, 2010, in Shunde, Guangdong, where the outcome saw China leading 3 to 2 over Thailand. On this occasion China won 3 times by points, with John Wayne Parr losing by the Chinese Superstar, while Thailand had the best with 2 KOs.

A phenomenal lineup is being presented this year, which includes the return of big names such as Artem Levin, WMC, IFMA and EMF Champion, and Simon Marcus, the “Bad Boy”, gold medalist at the 2010 SportAccord Combat Games and who has previously won against the local Superstar John Wayne Parr.
