Palungpol beat for the second time redoubtable Norrasing. The end of year 2010 was a little bit difficult for Palungpol because he has sudden a series of defeat in front of Ponsawan Sor Burapajan, Fahsawang Thor Sangtiennoi, Pholkit Namplatrahoymukgym, Lamnamoon Sakchaichot and Weerachai Wor Wiwattananon. He beat only Rungruangchai Sor Jaroensiri. But year 2011 begins better because he took his revenge on Weerachai, beat Phankomlek Kiatniwat and lose in points in a very tight match in front of boy wonder Mongkonchai Skindewgym!
His fight against Payaknoi Wor Wiwattananon in December, 2008 was elected as the best fight of the year in Radja!
In 2009 Palungpol was in competition for the prestigious title of the “Best Fighter of the year “. With Palungpol the candidates for this title was Nong O Sit Or, Mongkonchai Skindewgym and Rungruenglek Lukprabaht. It is Rungruenlek who gained the prize…
This great technician who today is classified N°2 in Lumpinee and N°1 in Radja in 112 lbs could indeed hang on his waist a fourth belt in 2011!
