Disc 1: Radjasak, the true living legend of Muay Thai, three times Thailand champion (72 fights, 68 victories, 45 KO) fights against France’s Karim Saada, five times French Champion. Farid Villaume fights against Italy’s Sconaniglio, Italian Full Contact Champion, finalist at the Amateur World Championship. An explosive fight between Remy Bonnel & Nordine Amari... Disc 2: Muay Thai has been existing for more than four centuries. So the Thai created this sport, but will they go on ruling the ring tremendously. In order to prove their value, they don’t hesitate to challenge the best Frenchmen at home. What will be the outcome? Disc 3: Expeditious fights (three knock-outs), spectacular and efficient technical moves, heated atmosphere, an exceptional Muay Thai meeting, in which the fighters go beyond their strength.
