Kevin Ross is a pioneer in American Muay Thai and one of the most accomplished US fighters today. He was voted Muay Thai North American Fighter of the year in 2010 and has held titles from the WBC, USMF and Lion Fight. Kevin has also fought a number former Thai champions including Saenchai, Sagetdao, Coke Chunhawat and Malaipet.

This was a tall order for Ross as Malaipet usually fought two weight classes above him and had almost 200 more fights than him.

This the first of a three part series where we begin by exploring Ross’ defensive tactics and strategies during the match.
