NewComer Challenge - Muay Thai Thailand

The Punch it Newcomer Challenge

Punchit Internatinal MuayThai Newcomer Challenge 2020

We, Punch it Gym Koh Samui, are the promoter of the international Punch it Newcomer Challenge – in association with Bernard Caplin and CHOK! Magazine, one of the most popular international martial arts magazines worldwide.

Markus & Bernard

Together we have created an international tournament concept for Muaythai newcomers, encompassing 4 to 6 national tournaments in different countries and at different weight classes. Each national tournament winner wins 2 weeks free fightcamp at our gym here on Koh Samui, including hotel room. On top, each winner also gets the opportunity of a paid fight against a professional Thai fighter in the grand finale hier on Samui in November.

Each national tournament is a 4-participant format, our goal is to help develop new young talent around the world. The age range is set from 16 to maximum 21 years old, fighters cannot have fought in Thailand before and must not have more than 10 A-class Muaythai fights upon entry.

Each national tournament is organised by a local promoter, which can also be a federation or a club. Bernard Caplin, an experienced promoter, will assist all local promoters with their organisation, event planning and rules & regulations. The grand final will be at the famous Phetchbuncha Stadium on Koh Samui late November. All finalists will receive a small fight purse in baht for this fight, also special Muaythai clothing & accessories from Punch it.

A country may host a national tournament no more than twice, after which our committee will consider new countries. All applications to host a national tournament in the coming year must be approved by December.

Punch it Newcomer Challenge 🇩🇪 2021


Firstly, congratulations to all the fighters and teams for making this year's german 4-man qualifier event such a success. Four great young fighters, three great Muaythai fights! And with a highly contested final that could have gone either way, what a fantastic Muaythai weekend it was!

After careful consideration and discussion this morning with @markus_muster_punch_it, owner of @punch_it_gym_thailand - our naming sponsor and host for the international tournament series, the two week fightcamp and the finals in Thailand - Markus and I would like to officially announce the following:

"Without any further ado regarding rules, details or the decision, (refs and judges have the hardest job of all and the highest respect in our books) we have decided to award the two week winners fightcamp and a final fight on the international team to fight at @phetchbunchasamuistadium in November to BOTH german finalists!"

Congratulations to Sebastian Gas from 4fight Rathenow and Nicolas Srdic from Fight Gym Nürnberg, see you both for two weeks free fightcamp at Punch it Gym on Koh Samui in November! 🇹🇭

Congratulations to Sebastian Gas and Coach @peter_weiss_4fight on winning this year's Punch it Newcomer Challenge event in Germany! 🇩🇪

In a very close final, Sebastian took the win against Nicolas Srdic from Nürnberg, in a very tough three round battle. Unfortunately this decision has been officially contested by Coach @maineugen, who has made a review request to the WKN.

Next up is the Punch it Newcomer Challenge Croatia, scheduled for May 22nd in Pula, Istria. 🇭🇷
