Yokkao Boxing is a Muay Thai brand based in Thailand.[1][2]

History[edit]

YOKKAO was founded by Doungjaj Tananan in Bangkok on 1 January 2010. It began by producing Muay Thai shorts and training equipment. In February 2011, YOKKAO started the YOKKAO Fight Team which sponsors Muay Thai Fighters around the world. The earliest line-up of the fight team included Buakaw Banchamek, Yoddecha Sityodtong, Jordan Watson, Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee, Saenchai PK SaenchaiMuayThaiGym, Dzhabar Askerov, Cedric Muller and Liam Harrison.[3] They also partnered up with Muay Thai camps such as Sityodtong.

In November 2011, the company started Muay Thai fight promotion by holding preliminary selections where winners would go on to fight at the first major YOKKAO fight event. The show was titled YOKKAO Extreme and took place on 21 January 2012 at the Forum di Assago in Milan, Italy.[4][5][6][7] The fight events were later briefly titled Muay Thai Combat Mania YOKKAO due to the partnership with Muay Thai Combat before, shortening to the current name with the 9th event on 24 May 2014.

On 11 October 2014, YOKKAO World Titles for 65k g and 70 kg were introduced at YOKKAO 10 & 11. Pakorn defeated Greg Wootton while Jordan Watson took a KO win over Mickael Piscitello to become the first YOKKAO World Champions at 65 kg and 70 kg respectively.[8]

YOKKAO has to date held over 60 fight events with shows in Italy, UK, Hong Kong, China, Argentina, Australia, Mexico and Thailand.[9][10][11][12][13]

YOKKAO signed more fighters into its team over the years including Singdam Kiatmoo9, Pakorn PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym, Tetsuya Yamato, Manachai, and Yodchai.

On 1 January 2019, YOKKAO introduced a new logo design featuring a more minimal and contemporary look.[14]

Business model[edit]

YOKKAO has training centers around the world through partnership with local gyms. Locations include Australia, Canada, Argentina, UK, Republic of San Marino, Croatia, Bahrain, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Malaysia, and Thailand.[15][16]

Since 2011, YOKKAO has held over 70 seminars around the world where participants learn Muay Thai techniques with fighters from their fighters and trainers.[17][18][19][20][21][22][23]

In September 2013, YOKKAO announced the signing of a partnership with UK SuperShowDown promoter, Brian Calder to promote YOKKAO fight events in England.[24] The partnership started formally with YOKKAO 8 on 8 March 2014, at the Macron Stadium in Bolton, UK. The stadium has since become a regular venue for YOKKAO events in the UK.

In June 2015, YOKKAO opened a factory in Samut Prakan, which also houses their office and a shop.[25]

In early 2016, the company opened the first YOKKAO Training Center in Bangkok. It's located in the centralised district of Sukhumvit and is the official training camp for the YOKKAO fight team.[26]

In February 2017, YOKKAO was featured on CNN for using social media in driving the brand's global exposure.[27][28]

In July 2017, the company announced the establishment of an YOKKAO warehouse in Republic of San Marino.

On 29 October 2018, YOKKAO hosted its first WBC title fight where Manachai fought against Julio Lobo from Brazil for the vacant WBC Muay Thai world welterweight title on YOKKAO 34 in Hong Kong. Manachai won the fight by decision to clinch the championship belt.[29][30][31]

On 8 April 2019, YOKKAO announced that it will host its official event for the first time in Sydney, Australia.

On 18 April 2019, YOKKAO announced the launch of its fighter management branch, YOKKAO Agency. The agency signed a 3-year deal with its first athlete, Craig Coakley on 25 April 2019.

On 27 July 2019, YOKKAO held its first Ireland event in Dublin where Singdam fought against Craig Coakley for the WBC Muay Thai Diamond Super-Lightweight title.[32][33][34][35] Singdam won the fight via decision to clinch the WBC diamond belt.[36]

In August and September 2019, YOKKAO went on a 3-week seminar tour in the USA with Saenchai, Spencer Brown, Yodchai and Kru Jack where they visited 20 gyms in 20 different cities.[37]
