on the vera topic about him being a legend in thailand. i try to keep up on full rules muay thai and watch the fights whenever i can get them and ive never heard of him being a legend or even fighting overthere. its possible hes had a few fights but to be a legend you need at least 100 fights. guys like scarboski (sp) and other guys from outside thailand spend years building up respect and in their culture it takes a lot to be a legend.
another thing is that their are not many thai fighters that would be fighting at the weight vera is because most of them are small thats just the way it works. im not sure what the highest weight class at the stadiums is but i think its smaller then 205. the majority if not all of the high level hw and lhw muay thai take place in western and eastern europe.
