Lerdsila retires as Lion Fight World champion


After a remarkable run of more than 225 professional fights, including an astonishing 100-fight winning streak and reigning Lion Fight World Lightweight champion, Lerdsila’s career has come to a close.

The 41-year-old recently announced his retirement after a final bout in his home country. He will go down in history as one of the top competitors to ever step inside the Lion Fight ring. Lerdsila fought for the first time on American soil at Lion Fight 36 in 2017, scoring an electrifying head-kick knockout against brave last-minute injury replacement Jacob Heibensen. Although he sported several nicknames at the time, most notably “The Eel” and “Mr. Lightning,” his highlight-reel debut earned him the moniker “The Mayweather of Muay Thai.”

Ten months later, Lerdsila, who fought out of Phuket, Thailand, returned to America for LF40 and claimed the Lion Fight World Lightweight title with a convincing five-round decision victory over Alexi Serepisos.

Lerdsila’s legacy was further cemented by the distinction of winning championships in three different weight classes (super flyweight, bantamweight and super bantamweight) under the illustrious Rajadamnern Stadium banner. His career record ends at 191 wins, 32 losses and five draws.

The entire Lion Fight team wishes nothing but the best for Lerdsila in his future endeavors.
