On Wednesday 29th June 2022 I was asked to photograph the first fight night for the Enfusion Contenders documentary. It took place at Phetchbuncha Samui Stadium, Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand. Not only was it the first time for me photographing a series of fights in Thailand, but it was my first time in a Thai Muay Thai stadium. As you can imagine, I felt blessed.
The show was pretty wild, and for anyone waiting for the Enfusion documentary to come out - you are in for a treat! There were three female Muay Thai fights at 60kg, and four male fights at 70kg. Remember, all of these fighters have been living and training together!
The fight card was as follows:
Hakan Duman (Turkey) vs. Leonardo Casotti (Brazil)
Salimkhan Lbragimov (Russia) vs. Furkan Karabag (Turkey)
Tadeas Ruzicka (Czech Republic) vs. Chalermsub Phuket (Thailand)
Seif Harnafi (Germany) vs. Milan Pales (Slovakia)
At the time of writing, we do not know when the documentary will be released, or where it will be released. As soon as I know, I will inform you all.
