Kun Khmer vs Muay Laos results:
- Vorn Viva 2nd-round TKO victory over Sathith Keointa, 74kg
- Lao Sinath unanimous decision over Sangpheth Vonghavimath, 64kg
- Em Vutha split decision over Noukhith, 57kg
- Saen Rady 3rd-round TKO over Samboun Vongsa, 54kg
Vorn Viva knocked Sathith Keointa out cold with a left elbow, right kick to the body combination, after scoring a knockdown with the left elbow seconds earlier. Until that point, however, the fight was dead even, with both sides landing lots of clean, hard shots.
Em Vutha won the middle three rounds in his bout with Noukhith, who was introduced as a 2009 SEA Games gold medalists. Vutha was stronger in the clinch, had the better hands and landed the better counter shots.
Lao Sinath convincingly beat a very tough Sangpheth Vonghavimath. It was clear early that Sinath was better, and the Cambodian fighter largely carried his Laos opponent though the final two rounds. The Laos guy showed tremendous heart, though. He took a fierce beating.
Saen Rady, aka Muteh Kmang, stole the show in a three-round non-stop brawl, scoring three knockdowns in the third against a significantly taller opponent. A spinning back elbow from the Laos fighter dropped Kmang in the second, but it did not earn a count. It hardly mattered. In the third, the 17-year-old Cambodian unloaded, dropping the Laos fighter twice and then forcing referee Trueng Sossay to stop the fight as Rady had Samboun Vongsa trapped on the ropes and getting pummeled.
On the undercard, Morn Kimlong scored an upset decision over a lackluster Khon Reach, and Suong Sovantha outpointed Nuon Vichet.
