Nine finals in all took place today, with more scheduled tomorrow at the FISU World University Muaythai Championships ©IFMA

Thailand have won two gold medals, in the first and last finals of the day, at the International Federation of University Sport (FISU) Muaythai World Championships in Pattaya today.

The home nation’s triumphs came in the women’s 51 kilogram final, which was on first, and the men’s 67kg final, which brought a close to the whole competition.

The day started with Nuttacha Chamuanjit up against Natalia Leciejewska from Poland and it was the Thai that came away victorious thanks to a points decision, 30-27.

The day could have got even better for the hosts at the Hard Rock Hotel, as another Thai Saeaia Phaenphloi featured in the second final.

Phaenphloi was up against an Australian, Diandra Martin but sadly for the hosts she was beaten in the first round, to somewhat douse Thai celebrations after Chamuanjit’s win in the first bout.

The third final of the day, in the men’s 66kg class, was the first not to feature a fighter from the home nation.

Yelman Sayassatov from Kazakhstan won that fight against the Russian Zilcreer Aslanbek on points 29-28.

The only other stoppage of the day, after Martin’s win in the second fight, came when Lukasz Radosz from Poland faced another Russian, Vitali Filippov in the men’s 86kg event.

Lukasz took that bout in the third round.

Russia had two other fighters also in finals today, though, and they both won.

First, Aleksei Fedotov won his bout in the men’s 75kg class against Choucair Ali from Lebanon, 29-28 and then later in the day Ekaterina Bezhan beat France’s Maelle Deboule in the women’s 67+ kg class 30-27.

By then it was time for the last final of the day, in which Thailand’s Kittisak Suksanguan faced Matysaev Bekzhan from Kyrgyzstan in the men’s 67kg event.

Not wanting to led the day end on a low for the hosts, Suksanguan sealed the win 29-28 to take Thailand’s second gold medal.

In the other finals of the day, Mates Penaz from the Czech Republic beat Turkey’s Serdar Yiğit Eroğlu 29-28 in the men’s 91kg category and Vinnik Artsem from Bulgaria beat another Kazakh, Ospan Yerkhnat, 30-27 in the men’s 60kg category.
