Martial Arts Contest: Poland – Thailand 2:1!

The gala in Wrocław was the fantastic showcase of The World Games 2017 and Muay Thai in Poland! The fans gathered in the Wrocław hall had the opportunity to see eight fights. The confrontation of Poland – Thailand finally ended with a score of 2:1 for Polish team.

Martial Arts Contest 1 is an important event for the increasing power of Polish Muay Thai. It is in this discipline Joanna Jędrzejczyk, the best Polish player in the history of Muay Thai, presented herself to a wider audience. The Pole is as the only one, who won the world championship in IFMA, and now she is excellent in MMA. In addition, she is world champion in UFC, in the straw category.

She certainly did not disappointed during the gala, which was assured by the observers and the fans. Before the competition to win the WMC belt between the players from Poland and Thailand, we saw a fascinating tournament for the belt of “Muay Thai Against Drugs”. In the first semifinal, Patryk Borowski-Beszta defeated Thanita Im-Ona from Thailand, and a moment later Jakub Rajewski, after a fantastic fight, turned out to be better than Mateusz Janik.  The final belonged to two Poles, and was won by Rajewski. The doctor had to stop the fight, because Janik was unable to fight.

Marcin Łepkowski and Robert Kit Kor met in the first fight for the WMC in the category of up to 69.85 kilo. The great weapon of Łepkowski is half-turn elbow hitting. In this way, he finished the fight.

The second fight belonged to Oskar Staszczak i Kongfak Keawsuk. Both players fought very dynamically, and the judges were forced to break the fight after the second round because of… broken rope in the ring. The player from Thailand commented the whole event smiling, because it was he, who damaged the rope. After re-starting the fight, the Pole attacked and it was he, who turned out to be better.

A big surprise was the third, final fight, and thus failure of Paweł Jędrzejczyk. The player from Wrocław could not find a way to beat Thameleka Chompona from Thailand, and eventually lost on points. The player of coach Janusz Janowskie did not hide his sadness after the fight. – I really wanted to win in front of my own audience, but unfortunately, I did not succeed. I had won in Thailand many times, but this time was different. I have to rethink everything and finally take a rest” – said Paweł Jędrzejczyk after the fight.

We remind that Muay Thai is one of the 31 sports that will be played in 2017 in Wrocław during the 10th The World Games.
