Glory 53 (May 12, 2018)
Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao Vs Abdellah Ezbiri
Winner – Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao Via Round 2 KO
Fighting on one of the busiest weekends of the year so far (in combat sports) makes it especially hard for a single fight or fighter to standout on Monday morning. In the aftermath of this past weekend, it is clear that Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao had no desire to blend into the crowd.
At the halfway mark of an already great card, Kiatmookao took Glory 53 to the next level when he landed one of the best knockouts of the year against Abdullah Ezbiri. This was a mesmerising knockout that is equal parts elegant and brutal. From the setup through to the execution, Petchpanomrung displayed effortless, technical mastery. At only 23 years of age, with two consecutive knockout of the year contenders, Petchpanomrung is without a doubt one of the most compelling Featherweight strikers in the world. I can not wait to see what the future holds for Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao.
