Multi-time Muay Thai world champion, Singdam made a return to the ring on 3rd February since his last fight in November last year. This was his debut appearance for the Chinese fight promotion, Wu Lin Feng. After an impressive campaign last year on another Chinese promotion, Kunlun Fight, Singdam returned to resume his Chinese conquest. It’s been over 2 months since his last appearance in the ring but Singdam showed no sign of rust with a solid performance for his Wu Lin Feng debut. Despite facing a younger, fitter opponent in Xie Lei, Singdam’s rich experience of over 300 fights in his career was evident as the fight played out. The heavy-handed Xie was clearly aware of Singdam’s famed middle kicks. The Chinese remained constantly prepared to catch Singdam’s kicks but underestimated the Thai champion’s proficiency in all weapons including some very hard punches.
While Xie started off strong in the first round, Singdam controlled the pace of the remaining 2 rounds. However, the 3 judges scored both fighters equally for the 3 rounds and the bout went into extra time. Xie’s monotonous delivery of strong punches proved no match for Singdam’s mastery of punches, kicks and knees in the final round. The more experienced Singdam landed a number of hard knees and a slamming head kick to get the win via unanimous decision. After a brief rest, Singdam has quickly resumed his intensive training regime back at YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok in preparation of the next fight. The Muay Thai veteran will be taking on UK fan-favorite, Reece McAllister for the main event at YOKKAO 30 on 10th March at Bolton Macron Stadium.
