After your losses against Saenchai and Petawsin, was your self confidence weakened ?
No my self confidence was not weakened... Phetassawin is top 10 in all the major stadiums and Saenchai is pound for pound the best and I gave them both good hard fights.
What did you know about your opponent ? Had you a particular strategy ?
I didn't know too much about Justin. I just knew he had fought some good names and was a tough game fighter, I didn't go into the fight with a strategy just to fight my fight, my style. To be honest I think I was better in every department.
Next fights ?
My next fights now will be part of the Muythai Premier League... my next fight is Otcober 7th in Italy.
