Marcel Gaines (Tiger Muay Thai) vs Mat Ropi rematch @ Gua Musang, Malaysia 21/4/2013
This was a highly anticipated rematch between Tiger Muay Thai fighter Marcel Gaines from South Africa and Malaysian 60kg champion Mat Ropi.
In their first fight in December 2012, Mat Ropi (a veteran of around 200 fights) took a close decision victory. This time, Marcel kept the pressure on Ropi and dominated the fight from round 3 onwards. Unfortunately due to the special rules in the part of Malaysia where the fight took place, there was no judges decision at the end of the fight and it was ruled a draw.
