Something big happened at Yokkao 28 at the Macron Stadium in Bolton. Daniel McGowan took down a top-level Thai, Rungarai Kiatmoo9 in spectacular fashion. And this wasn’t a lucky shot from an otherwise losing contender, but the finale to a commanding performance that saw one of Thailand’s finest fighters KO’d from a left hook in the third round.

Rungarai had only 8-weeks previously voluntarily vacated his prestigious Rajadamnern Stadium Title as he moved up in weight class. He was certainly no push over, and hadn’t come to England to lose to a lad from Bedford. However, Daniel McGowan didn’t want to just “put on a good fight”, he wanted to “beat him.”

But I don’t think even Daniel dared to believe he could beat Rungarai in the manner that he did.

Daniel McGowan realises just what he's achieved

This interview and footage are all from the Yokkao event. I initially caught up with Daniel after his weigh-in to talk about his preparation for the fight, and his plans for the future too, before documenting the fight day itself.

Rungarai is counted out

I hope this interview serves not only as a memento of this achievement for Daniel, his family, and his trainers…

But also as inspiration to others who dream big, and are prepared to work for it.

Incredible things happen when you take steps, everyday, toward your dream. Daniel McGowan is the product of many years of deliberate work, and an amazing support team. Congratulations Daniel, you’ve earned your place among those top fighters you’ve always looked up to.

Why does this matter for every western Muay Thai enthusiast, fighter, or coach?

Why Heavy Hitters is Different:

  • Streamlined Efficiency: The life of a Muay Thai enthusiast, coach, or fighter, especially in the West, is brimming with demands. Heavy Hitters understands that. No need for endless hours. You need potent, impactful hours. This program is your answer.

  • Real-world Results: From enthusiasts in Australia to champions in the USA, the feedback is unanimous – Heavy Hitters changes the game. Take it from Paul Banasiak:

     “From broke and broken to moving and competing better than ever. Since working with Don 3 years ago, I haven’t had a single major issue. Don gave me the confidence that has translated itself into three straight knockout wins and a WBC title.”

  • Holistic Training: It’s not merely about more power in your punches or lasting longer. It’s about cultivating a body that’s nimble, powerful, and resistant to injuries.

  • Be Part of Something Greater: Beyond the program lies a fraternity, a global assembly of like-minded souls, all driven by the singular passion to redefine their Muay Thai boundaries.

If tales of triumph intrigue you, delve deeper into Jonathan Lane’s saga – from grappling with an ACL recovery amid fatherhood to clinching the MTA NSW State Title. His secret weapon? The Heavy Hitters program.

Seize your golden chance to level up your Muay Thai journey. Remember, the doors to Heavy Hitters Barebones will shut on midnight 31st May and won’t swing open again until November 2024…

But here’s the silver lining – even if you’re not geared up to start immediately, you can reserve your spot in this cohort and start your training whenever you’re ready.
