Daghio, the last highlander!!! July 2 will once again star the 5 time world champion of Muay Thai, Christian Daghio, busy this time in a battle for the world title against the polish David Nowak.
"The preparations here in Thailand at Kombat Group makes me feel like I’m ready to climb a mountain. I have incredible coaches: Thais for Muay Thai, Filipinos for Boxing and even my brother Fabrizio for strength and conditioning. My staff have prepared me with intense workouts and a nutrition plan that makes me feel unbeatable! On the evening of the match I promise a great fight and will do everything to win by knockout! "
hristian took the lead in the heart 3 match, the most significant of his career:
Christian has had over 200 different professional fights, but three stick out in his mind:
1 - When he fought in Lumpini stadium and became the first Italian ever to win at the Mecca of Muay Thai
2 - The charity match against the boxer Somlak, who won an olympic medal for Thailand. The match was for tsunami survivors. 14 million Thais watched from the comfort of their homes.
3 - Christian won the WTKA title in the Italian city Concordia, which had recently been devastated by an earthquake.
Afterward, Christian donated his entire purse to charity.
"I remember with sadness the day I viewed the rubble of the cities ruined by the earthquake. I’ve always been close to my countrymen, so it pained me to see Italian lives lost. This fight will be special for me because it will be held in Soliera, in Miami, where as a boy I started to take my first steps in this wonderful art with my teacher Andrea Romagnoli and teammates Antonio Lo Conte, Fabio Cerrato and my great friend Oberdan Salvioli. Unfortunately, he died heroically in the evening flood of Sorbara and Bomporto trying to rescue people in distress. This match will be dedicated to him."
Christian, after moving to Thailand at a young age and living as a professional boxer for 10 years, has turned his passion to his lifestyle: he created a Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Martial Arts and Weight Loss camp where everyone can train.
