Sakmongkol is known as one of the legendary Muay Thai fighters of all time, defeating other Muay Thai greats as Ramon Dekkers, Danny Bill, Perry Ubeda, John Wayne Parr, Jongsanan Fairtex, Peter Crooke and many others. His record stands at 231 wins, 4 draws, and 20 losses. He is a 5 time WMC World Champion and a 3 time Lumpinee Stadium Champion.[1]

He was a champion in the 90's, considered to be the Muay Thai "Golden Era". He is known for his devastating left kicks and tough body that could take a lot of punishment while still able to continue to push the fight forward. He started training at 6 years old, and had his first fight when he was 8. He made it to Lumpinee Stadium at the age of 12. At age 18 he fought and defeated the Dutch legend, Rammon Dekkers. His most famous battles, a total of 7 fights, were against Jongsanan Fairtex. Their fifth fight became known as the "Elbow Fight" and is considered as one of the most brutal and best Muay Thai fights of all time.
