Damien Trainor Muay Thai Documentary: Damien Trainor vs Tawatchai Controversy (Part 5) – One of the biggest scandals in British Muay Thai was when Damien Trainor lost a controversial decision against Thailand’s, Tawatchai Budsadee, despite two of the three judges awarding the win to Trainor when both fighters clashed in a legendary fight at, ‘Rumble at The Reebok’ in 2009.

Former two-time Muay Thai world champion, Damien Trainor, was facing one of the most fierce opponents of his Muay Thai career at the time, with Tawatchai having fought in over 500 fights by the time the two would fight each other. It’s very common for Muay Thai fighters born and raised in Thailand to have fought up-to a couple of hundred times as children fighters. However, Tawatchai’s fighting reputation was incredibly strong for having amassed so many fights in his career.

Damien Trainor recounts the whole ordeal, controversy and more including, extended highlights from both the first fight and rematch with Tawatchai. This video is Part 5 of The Damien Trainor Muay Thai Documentary series.
