Muay Thai Fighter Suspended For Illegal Titanium Shin Implants in Chiang Mai

Muay Thai

Chiang Mai, – Muay Thai fighter Bandasak Chaiyasan was suspended by the World Muay Thai Council today when X-Ray images surfaced showing that he had fought with a titanium shin implant without disclosing it to the athletic commission during about on May 16th in Chiang Mai, Thailand. These x-rays emerged just days after his recent victory via headkick KnockOut.

Upon waking up, Chaiyasan’s opponent said the following:

“I have never felt anything like that. I have been fighting for 7 years and I have never felt anything like that kick.” – Noppadon Chalor

(translation by Fightstate.)

An unnamed contact at Bandasak Chaiyasan’s training camp told Fightstate (while sipping on a Thai Iced Tea recipe they recommended candidly) that the fighter snapped his leg when his sparring partner checked a kick during training, and the titanium implant was part of his recovery. However, our research shows that keeping the implant in place after the leg is healed was in violation of the Int’l Muay Thai Federation’s Rules and Guidelines.

Also, there is doubt as to whether or not he was even injured in the first place since an injury like this typically takes upwards of a year to fully heal and Chaiyasan has fought as recently as two months ago.
