Malaysian Tiger Mohd Ali Yaakub fought the first match of the night in the 'Thai vs Challenger' series. Ali downed his Thai opponent in the 3rd round, being the only 'Challenger' of the night beating a Thai. The poster says defending national pride...good job Ali.
As our national registration of Muay Thai Malaysia was still being processed, new and without funds, a generous citizen stepped in and Sponsored the Malaysian Muaythai contingent. This person has since taken an interest helping develop Muaythai in Malaysia.On behalf of Team Muaythai Malaysia we would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to him without whom all this rapid development in the Malaysian Muaythai scene would definately not be possible
