One great and most decorated Muay Thai fighter is Damien Alamos. He is a French Muay Thai kickboxer who had his extensive training in Thailand. He is the first and only western Muay Thai fighter to claim the Lumpinee title. Lumpinee or more accurately Lumpinee Boxing Stadium, is an indoor sports arena in Bangkok, Thailand, run by Royal Thai Army on behalf of the Thai government. Over the years, Lumpinee has become the symbol of modern Muay Thai where the championship titles are held from Flyweight (111 lbs) to Super Welterweight (154 lbs). Damien Alamos is the WPFM European and World Muay Thai champion and as Lumpinee champion for the 140 pounds category where he fought against Iranian Abat Muaythaiacademy.
His recent bout with Orono Wor Petchpun – World Champion, Lumpinee Champion, Thailand Champion, It’s Showtime Champion, did not give him the title although this does not preclude him from other honors he could win in the future as one of France’s pride in Muay Thai. He had already given France so much honor especially being the first non-Thai fighter to defend the Lumpinee title in September 2012.
