Champ began training at only 8 years old in his hometown of Kan Janaburi, which was no surprise since his dad was a well known fighter. Champ is a proud member of the Thai Airforce, has completed over 300 fights and was previously awarded “Strongman Fighter” and “Good Fighter” in Anthong province. Champ used his fight winnings to pay for his education and most recently, to purchase a washing machine for his beloved mum. He still fights professionally to this day, is a certified Muay Thai trainer at Gym Bangarang.
Most know “Uncle” as Tommy’s mentor and trainer. But you may not know that Uncle used to work as a carpenter and started off as a streetfighter in Ratchaburi province. He trained champion channel 7 fighter Ong Chai Lung and Ban Sing and started one of Thailand’s only Women’s Muay Thai gym in Chiang Mai. After over one hundred fights and an eye injury, Uncle retired from professional fighting. We celebrate Uncle's birthday every year on Thailand’s Father’s Day since he doesn’t know his birthdate and he is well respected at Gym Bangarang.
