Yet another Muay Thai World Champion has joined the elite Evolve Instructor Team as a full-time permanent instructor for both Muay Thai and Boxing. Kongtoranee Payakaroon Sityodtong is a living legend in Thailand and the only man to win the Lumpinee Muay Thai World Championship in 5 weight categories. The Thai media has ranked both Kongtoranee and his brother, Samart Payakaroon Sityodtong, in the top 5 best fighters of all time in Muay Thai. In Thailand, Kongtoranee and Samart are household names. Kongtoranee has a professional fight record of 251-54-9. Like Samart, he also turned to professional boxing after a career in Muay Thai. As the #1 ranked contender in the world in his weight class for boxing, Kongtoranee fought for both the WBA and WBC World Championship titles on two different occasions. Today, he is an elite instructor and grooms future World Champions for the Sityodtong Gym. Kongtoranee is known for having a very technical style of fighting, and in his prime, he had knock out power in both legs and hands.  Kongtoranee is a certified Muay Thai instructor under the legendary Kru Yodtong of the Sityodtong Gym in Thailand.  Kongtoranee is originally from Thailand.
