Biography and career[edit]

Saiyok Pumpanmuang was born as Sakdaa Niamhon on October 22, 1983 in lower northern Thailand in Phitsanulok, the capital of Phitsanulok Province. He began boxing at the age of 11 in the Sor Riendek camp.[2]

Known as Saiyoknoi Sakchainarong during early years of his career, he rose to fame by winning three stadium titles including one from the prestigious Rajadamnern Stadium. Saiyok was considered in Thailand one of the most promising fighters in the heavier weight classes, however he fell from grace after losing his belts to Singmanee Sor Srisompong, in a controversial match seen by the thai media as fraud.[3]

After the fight, promoters shied away from the disgraced fighter, forcing him to find another job and earn living as fruit merchant. He was taken in by a promoter at Lumpinee Stadium, Lieutenant General Sukkhatat Pumphanmuang, who decided to help Saiyok on his return to the sport.[3]

Saiyok, took Lumpinee promoter’s last name as part of his new ring alias, and on March 7, 2008 at Lumpinee he won the vacant welterweight title of Thailand by second round KO over Singsiri Por Sirichai.[4]

Saiyok was set to fight Chike Lindsay at Muaythai Superfight on May 13, 2013[11][12] but the bout was scrapped.
