This is the only video I’ve been able to find of my trainer/kru. He comes in at 1.46 and at 1.54 gets KO’d.
When I saw this, it wasn’t the KO that I took great note of, it was how hard he tried to get up.
His fight name is Sataban Tor Ratonakiet, nickname Gai and he never won a belt. Belts are cool, but not having one doesn’t define you as a less than great fighter in my opinion. Neither does getting knocked out on YouTube. I equate it to assuming all the smartest kids got the best grades in school. Granted, some of them did, but not all of them. And realistically, fighting is like anything else, we all get knocked out eventually. But do we all stand up?
