Muay Thai in Mexico is on the rise and the KO of the Week comes from one of the country’s top fighters.
AMK is the leading promotion in Tijuana and the surrounding area. Promoter Ruben Moreno is looking to bring world class Muay Thai to fans in Mexico. He has steadily built the AMK promotion and in his most recent event, AMK 6, Jose Ruelas delivered an amazing KO.
Ruelas trains out of Ludus Fight Team in Rosarito. He holds a record of 8-0 in Muay Thai and 1-1 in Kickboxing. At AMK 6 he was taking on Israel Fernandez. In this KO he showed that you don’t need to load up on a punch to score a KO. Technique is all you need, and he executed perfectly.
You can see in the video he fakes a right hand over the top which freezes Fernandez in his tracks. Ruelas then throws an uppercut with his left that flattens Fernandez out. Great KO to watch.
