Muay Thai highlight of Coban Lookchaomaesaitong.
Coban had some of the most lethal punches in Thai boxing history. He fought 270 times (90 wins by KO) and bagged himself two Lumpinee titles along the way.
Coban was born in Issan, NorthEast Thailand in 1966 and was one of five children. His family was poor and he wanted to help so, at the age of 11, he began training Muay Thai on his own by filling canvas rice bags with rice hulls and sawdust. He had his first bout at a Thai festival that same year and drew the fight. He won 30baht.
A year later, a ringside doctor and judge relocated to Coban's local area. He saw Coban training and invited him to train at the public health and recreational centre.
At 15 years old, Coban moved to the Lookchaomaesaitong Muay Thai camp in Buriram where he would live for the next 9 years.
At 19, Coban won his first Lumpinee title...
Coban is probably best known outside of Thailand for his rivalry with Ramon Dekkers. These fights are legendary; two wins for Dekkers and two wins for Coban.
Some of the fighters featured in this highlight include Dany Bill, Ramon Dekkers, Hector Pena, Fahlannoi Kietannan, Samransak Muangsurin, Noppadet Sorsamroeng and Oliver Harrison.
Coban also holds wins over, Noppadet Sorsamroeng and Orono Por Muang Ubon.
