Tribute to Poot Lorlek

It's been 4 years since his passing and as he was my favourite fighter, I think it would be appropriate to dedicate this week's blog to one of the Greatest Thai Boxer of all Time.

Poot Lorlek “The Great Thai Boxer”
In memory of Arjarn Poot Lorlek born 1st January 1952 in Trang province in the south of Thailand.
Poot Lorlek was known as "The Great Thai Boxer" and “The Angel Boxer” due to his remarkable Muay Thai talent.
Ranked by the Rajadamnern Stadium as 1 of the 10 Greatest Muay Thai Boxers of all time.
In 1968 the young boxer moved to Bangkok to live and learn with his uncle who was a flyweight Muay Thai Champion.
On his very first bout in Bangkok he impressed the famous promoter Kru Tao so much that Kru Tao became Poot’s patron, providing Poot with a variety of opponents to perfect his skills.
Poot was a very technical boxer, with sharp eyes, amazing agility, and speed. His career spanned over 80 bouts and he was a superstar of his time (1970-1977).
After winning his Junior Featherweight Championship he found it very difficult to find challenges, sadly Poot had to relinquish his title because he simply could not be beaten! Finding it hard to find opposition Poot would fight heavier opponents and even fought the legendary Japanese kickboxer Ikari Kensiu which ended in the predicted knockout with one of Poot’s legendary high kicks!
Poot moved to international boxing and became Rajadamnern Stadium Lightweight Champion.
His speed and skill would always prevail, and Muay Thai fans would fill the stadiums to watch his craftsmanship.
After a long layoff Poot eventually return to the Muay Thai ring for a charity match against Hern Silathong former Middleweight Muay Thai Champion…..It ended as everyone would have expected in a win for Poot Lorlek!
At the end of a prodigious career Arjarn Poot Lorlek began teaching and passing on his skills to new and up-and-coming Muay Thai students.
On many Muay Thai seminars conducted by Arjarn Tony Moore of the Sitsiam Camp begin by watching “The Great Thai Boxer” Poot Lorlek to emphasise the skill of Muay Thai. Poot’s incredible footwork, speed and timing enabled him to fight in any direction especially the skill of attacking when moving backwards, a skill sadly lost in today’s Muay Thai.

Arjarn Poot Lorlek has now gone to join the past Masters of Muay Thai. So please, on Thursday (Muay Thai Day) when you pay respect to past Masters by performing the “Wai Kru” give a special thought to Arjarn Poot Lorlek.
We wish to give everybody the opportunity to watch “The Great Thai Boxer” Poot Lorlek by visiting our YouTube channel “The Golden Age of Muay Thai”.
