Jomhod "King of the Ring" Kiatadisak (born 5 July 1970) is a professional muay Thai fighter from Phang Nga province in the South of Thailand. He started learning muay Thai at the age of 7 and won his first fight when he was 11 years old. In 1986 Jomhod won the Southern Thailand Championship in 59.6 kg weight category and the same year, at the age of 16, he moved to Bangkok and began his proper fighting career.
Jomhod fought in Lumpinee stadium for the first time in 1989. At the age of 18 he won the Lumpinee Lightweight Title, he never lost the belt but vacated it to move up in weight. In 1994 he won the Rachadamernn Championship in the same weight class, followed by the super lightweight title the next year and at one stage simultaneously held titles in both Lumpinee Stadium and Rajadamnern Stadium.
In 1995 Jomhod moved to Finland after a request to come fight and coach there. He lived in Finland for 11 years winning numerous titles in muay Thai and kickboxing. In 2006 he moved back to Thailand to be head coach at the J. Prapa Gym in Kata Beach, Phuket but recently opened his own gym, Jomhod Muay Thai, near Phuket airport and Nai Yang beach.
In 1998 he won the Muay Thai Champion's League Final in Amsterdam beating Sakmongkol Sithchuchok by TKO (round three) in the final. He holds a notable win over Ramon Dekkers from the King's Cup in 1996 and a notable K-1 loss to Buakaw Por. Pramuk from 2006. Other Western opponents he has beaten include Ivan Hippolyte, Ole Laursen and Eval Denton.
Jomhod has continued to fight occasionally in Phuket even though he is now in his 40s and in December 2012 he returned to Bangkok, beating former Olympic gold medal winner Somluck Kamsing by decision at Lumpinee Stadium.
