Biography and career
Fabio Pinca was born on 14 June 1984. Pinca resides in Lyon, France and trains at Gym boxing St Fons in Lyon, Saint-Fons. His trainer is Nasser Kacem.
Fabio began training in Muaythai at the age of 15. He discovered Muaythai while watching a video tape from Thailand. Boxers who were dreaming Pinca was Ramon Dekkers, Dany Bill, Saimai and Farid Villaume. By learning about a club near his home, he met the Boxing Gym St-Fons who already had good boxers.
He enjoyed his first training in Muaythai and was very motivated to continue. After his first fight, there were still lots of work and improvement. From that moment on, he devoted himself to the sport. He never changed club since it began on Muaythai because he thinks that there is quite good Nak Muay in Saint-Fons in order to cross the gloves and a very good coach to teach and prepare for battle.
Fabio Pinca has a job as an educational facilitator in his city with schedules arranged, which allows him to focus his athletic career.
In March 2014, Fabio Pinca became an event organiser and created his own promotion called STRIKE FIGHT. The first event will held in his native city Lyon in France on June 27, 2014.
Fabio Pinca fought in Muaythai and kickboxing, but his preference is for Muaythai because he is passionate about the sport and Thai culture. He likes to use his elbows and knees.
In 2004 he was French Muay Thai Champion Class B and wins World Muaythai Championships bronze medal. In 2005 he reached the finals of French Muay Thai Championship Class A.

Pinca fought Dutch-Turkish kickboxer Tayfun Ozcan at Time Fight 2 in Tours, France on October 6, 2012. He battered his opponent with knee strikes from the Thai clinch and forced a stop to the bout in round three after breaking Ozcan's arm.
He faced Alessandro Campagna in a tournament reserve bout at Glory 3: Rome - 2012 Middleweight Slam Final 8 on November 3, 2012 in Rome, Italy and lost via unanimous decision. He was docked a point in the third round for excessive clinching which is banned under kickboxing rules.
A rematch between Fabio Pinca and Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong went down at Best of Siam 3 in Paris, France on February 14, 2013 but he was unable to take his revenge as he lost a unanimous decision.
He fought Saenchai for the second time on 21 January 2012 at 'Yokkao Extreme' and won a controversial decision. Pinca struggled early on against Saenchai despite having a 12 kg weight advantage and took out his frustration with a headbutt on his opponent that went unpunished.
Pinca competed in the four man tournament at MAX Muay Thai 2 in Pattaya, Thailand on June 29, 2013. He caused an upset by outpointing Diesellek Aoodonmuang in the semi-finals but was then on the receiving end of one when he lost a decision to Victor Nagbe in the final.
