Results and Recap for WCK Muay Thai "Hot Summer Fights", Nakamoto remains undefeated

WCK Muay Thai “Hot Summer Fights” took place last night at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA. In the night’s main event Aleide Lawant tried to Dethrone “The Queen of Mean” Miriam Nakamoto and not only take her WBC Muay Thai World Title, but also hand her the first loss of her career. Nakamoto, however, would have none of it. Lawant came out aggressive, but Nakamoto remained poised and calmly took the center of the ring. They both exchanged heavy blows and Lawant opened a cut on Nakamoto’s brow with an elbow, but before she could capitalize on the cut Nakamoto returned the favor. As the fight wore on Nakamoto seemed to get stronger as Lawant slowed down. In the end Nakamoto walked away still undefeated and still the champ after all three judges scored the fight in her favor giving her the unanimous decision victory.

In the night’s co-main event Mike Lemaire won the WBC Muay Thai Cruiserweight National Title with a first round (T)KO of Ryan Madigan. Early in the first round after some exchanged strikes Madigan fell to the canvas clutching his right knee. After getting back to his feet Lemaire went on the attack and pushed him against the ropes. Lemarie looked to deliver a flying knee, but Madigan fell to his back clutching his knee again and the fight was stopped.

In another WBC Muay Thai title fight Luis Bio defended his WBC Muay Thai Mexican National Title by edging a very game Raul Rodriguez in a split decision. Bio started strong and used his strong clinch to get the better of Rodriguez early, but as the fight went on it seemed Rodriguez got stronger. He began to use his boxing a bit more and connect with clean punches in the later rounds, but Bio continued to use his clinch game to neutralize Rodriguez’s boxing. It was a close fight but Bio remained the champion when it was all said and done.

Adam Rothweiler improved to 3-0 with a (T)KO stoppage of Levon Sarkysan. Rothweiler and Sarkysan went toe to toe, but the difference was that Rothweiler continuously delivered leg kicks to Sarkysan’s lead leg that went unchecked. By the fourth round Sarkysan could no longer take the leg kicks and he hit the canvas. After beating the referee’s count Rothweiler went on the attack with more leg kicks knocking Sarkysan down against and forcing the referee to stop the fight.

In some of the night’s other action Leyna Ovchynnikova won a unanimous decision over Emily Bearden. Jacob Poss, John Vargas, and Alfred Kashakyan all scored spectacular first round knockouts as well.
