Sitthichai gained his fight at Lumpinee. Regrettably the revenge against Fabio Pinca in Italy did not take place. Sitthichai did not fight for two months then he fought in main fight in Lumpinee against Pansak Look Bor Kor, he loses in points. In only 18 years Sitthichai makes left the current Top fighters in his category, he’s ranking N° 5 in Lumpinee, N° 7 in stadium of Omnoi and in that of the Thailand. For the ranking WBC he’s N° 4. This young technical fighter the murderous pokes goes certainly make speak about him in the years about future in Thailand and abroad!
