Asian Journal, Posted: Aug 05, 2009

LAS VEGAS -- Filipino-American Romie Adanza reclaimed the Intercontinental WBC World Championship Muay Thai belt from British Paulo Da Silva last July 25 at the Hilton Las Vegas. Adanza won via TKO. Muay Thai is a sport practiced in Thailand, which is similar to boxing but also allows strikes with the feet, elbows, and knees. Adanza ended the fight at 0:26 seconds of round 4. "This is the most important fight of my life so far," he said. The Texas-born Filipino has a record of 25 wins, two losses and two draws.
