Video: Mathias MF wins the Max MT Silver 4 Man Tournament -62kg – 5th Apri 2015
Yesterday (5th April 2015), the young Muay Farang Team Captain, Mathias Gallo Cassarino, who’s only 22 years old, added a brand new belt to his significant collection of belts, that already includes the most prestigious ones for Muay Thai: WBC, WPMF & WMC.
A very challenging tournament for Mathias, who in the first match faced the good and technical French fighter Issam Arabat-Ziane, who made Mathias to accelerate after he received a hook on the face.
Issam & Mathias made a great show and at the third round Mathias very strong kicks who made him win the fight on points.
Mathias finished the fight with some marks on the face and a bad wound on his shin.
In the second fight of the semifinals, the Thai Puenyai Payyakka Mpan, who recently won a WMC title, faced the Russian Russo Berdyev (Super WMF Pro Marathon -63,5kg champion).
In the first round the Russian, who was still fresh and full of energy, knocked down his opponent. After the Thai has been counted by the referee, he accelerated and dominated the match and then passed the turn, but with a vertical cut on his face.
And so in the final, Mathias faced the Thai; the two fighters, who were both marked from the previous fights, conducted an excellent fight, rich of shots from both sides until the plot twist of the second round.
In the lockers Roberto clearly said < “When he’s on the ropes strike a back fist” >. As said, Mathias found the right moment and striked a beautiful “back fist”, that hit his opponents chin, who then tried to get up but felt down on the referee’s arms. Mathias in tears in front of the cameras, got a new great success.
So Mathias confirmed to be the Max Muay Thai -62kg champion and as previously announced, at the end of the year he will face the winners of the next 3 Max MT tournaments, in a super final tournament that features a 1 Milion Baht ( around 28k Eruo ) final prize and a golden World Max Muay Thai Champion belt.
