I’ve mentioned in my previous article that he’ll be the undisputed number one soon. I’m convinced now that he is the best active K1 fighter. Because no one is fighting as he is currently, and it’s obvious from his record.

He is known for his body and footwork, matrix movement to open new angles, smart defense, counterpunch, timing, and accuracy. So he nicknamed “The Doctor“, and he would be “The Perfect” if he improved his hitting power.

If you noticed the 5 fighters between 60 and 70 kg that we were talking about, he is the only fighter who didn’t lose to any of them and defeated them all. Except Buakaw tied with him, and he didn’t fight Masato. He has beaten every great fighter in his division out of the top 10 list as well, like (Mike Zambidis and Artur Kyshenko).
