Singdam Yokkao Saenchaigym, formerly known as Singdam Kiatmuu9, is a Muay Thai fighter from Thailand. He is a Lumpinee Boxing Stadium champion, and is known for his powerful right kicks and technical fighting.
Singdam is from Buriram in the Northeast part of Thailand. He began fighting at the age of nine and just one year later began training at the Kiatmuu9 gym, where he's been ever since.
In 2002 he beat Orono Wor Petchpun at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium for the title Featherweight champion of Thailand. Shortly after he was awarded with the sports writers of Thailand fighters of the year. In 2004 he beat Yodsanklai Fairtex, then fought Anuwat Kaewsamrit in a fight that would determine who would win the same award, but this time he was KO'd by a punch. Despite the loss he still managed to win Lumpinee fighter of the year. In 2005 he fought Saenchai PKSaenchaimuaythaigym, and won a decision. The two would meet three more times in the ensuing year and Singdam was defeated each time.
In 2006 Singdam continued his rivalry with Orono, with Singdam winning two of the three fights. In 2007 he fought Jomthong Chuwattana at Lumpinee stadium where he won on points. In 2008 he started a new rivalry, this time with Nong-O Sit Or and Singdam would win the first fight between them. In 2009 he fought Lerdsila Chumpairtour and won a decision
At the beginning of 2010 he fought in Japan against Nong-O Sit Or. After five rounds the bout was ruled a draw, and was extended to a 6th round. After the extension round Singdam was ruled the winner. Singdam and Nong-O fought two more times in 2010, with Nong-O winning both. In 2011 he matched up with Sagetdao Petpayathai twice, and losing both times. At the annual Lumpinee Boxing Stadium birthday show in December Singdam was matched against F16 Rachanon and he won by TKO at the end of round four after F-16 was unable to continue from because of damage caused to his arm. In 2012 Singdam once again fought Nong-O Sit Or to start off the year, and this time he lost. On June 8 Singdam fought Wanchalerm Uddonmuang for the title of Lumpinee Boxing Stadium and won a decision. July 6 he knocked out Watcharachai Rachanon to retain his championship. On September 8 he defended his Lumpini title by beating Saenchai PKSaenchaimuaythaigym in one of the most anticipated fights of the year.
YOKKAO Boxing announced on Twitter that Singdam officially changed his fighting name and will fight under his new name, Singdam YOKKAOSaenchaiGym on September 2, 2017. He is currently under YOKKAO management and trains at the YOKKAO Training Center in Bangkok.
On 27 July, Singdam fought Craig Coakley for the WBC Muay Thai Super-lightweight Diamond title at YOKKAO 42 in Dublin, Ireland. He became the third fighter in history to win the WBC Diamond title which has only been held by two fighters so far, namely, Buakaw Banchamek and Saenchai. The win for Singdam was surrounded by speculation as to how the judges scored the bout. Under WBC rules all strikes count the same as opposed to traditional Muay Thai rules where kicks score higher than punches. Coakley took this rule set and capitalised on it by mainly boxing and Singdam mainly using his trademark right kick. Many experts and spectators vow that Coakley was the superior fighter on the night and landed a significant number of strikes more than Singdam.[opinion]
