Learning is a never ending process. When you stop learning, you stop growing. Just days fresh off his stunning win at All Star Fight 5 in Prague on 6th July, Manachai has resumed his intense training schedule. The young fighter made a detour from Prague to Italy where he is now at the Team Satori Nemesis Gorizia gym. YOKKAO has made special arrangements for Manachai to learn from the world-renowned Italian kickboxing coach, Alfio Romanut. Coach Romanut is a well-respected name in the world of fight sports. He has trained numerous world champions over the years, including one of the greatest kickboxers of all time - Giorgio Petrosyan. Under his technical and highly-effective instruction, Giorgio Petrosyan has gone on to bag top accolades around the world and holds a near-pristine fight record. Joining Manachai for the training expedition is YOKKAO Fight Team mate, Spencer Brown.
The 2 fighters are accompanied with champion trainer, Kru Petchdam in an international exchange of striking techniques, training methods and friendly sparring. Trainers and fighters from both camps have benefited tremendously over the daily training sessions. The fighters are poised to take on the challenges for their fights in the coming months. During the course of the stay, the YOKKAO team spotted a young, upcoming fighter, Yao Agbetiafa. The 70kg talent filled the role as a sparring partner for Manachai and Spencer, impressing the team with his technical abilities and finesse. Agbetiafa will be make his promotional debut for YOKKAO Next Generation Bologna that will be held on 1st December.
The Thailand fight team’s Italian stay will soon come to an end but it won’t be long before they make their return. YOKKAO has lined up a whole series of events that will be taking place in the country. After YOKKAO Next Generation Bologna, the event will be followed by YOKKAO 35 - 36 on 26th January 2019 and the Next Generation Kids show a day after.
