Biography and career[edit]

Orono started out Muay thai at the age of 15, a fairly late age to start fighting in Thailand. A year later he had his first fight in Bangkok. In 2001 he won the WMC World Muaythai (122 lb) title against Petchek Sor Suwannapakdee.

Formerly fighting under the name Orono Majestic gym (โอโรโน่ มาเจสติกยิม), Orono has mixed it up with many of the top names in muay thai. He holds two KO wins over The Contender Asia champion Yodsaenklai Fairtex, two decisions over K-1 MAX champion Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Saenchai Sor Kingstar.[1] After fighting all the big names in Thailand at his weight class, Orono made his international debut in 2007 at the SLAMM "Nederland vs Thailand III" event against William Diender.

In March 2012, Orono announced his intention to compete in mixed martial arts.[2]
