分享是关怀!

这些天打架比赛一角钱,尤其是在每天举行泰拳表演的泰国。但是即使战斗卡夸耀了世界’最好的单身前锋,它’众所周知的事实是,传统的泰国体育馆表演正受到年轻体育迷的青睐。

从对接会,宣传到实际生产,打架促销是一项比大多数人意识到的日益复杂的任务。如今,组织战斗活动已远远超出了仅将战斗人员配对进行争吵的范围。

Famed promoter Sasan 古萨里 is someone who can claim to know more than a thing or two about the subject. His prolific experience in the field includes work on high profile shows like Thai Fight, Top King World Series, Kunlun Fight and the Buakaw-fronted series, 全明星大战.

古萨里, an Iranian with Kurdish roots, first arrived in 泰国 back in 2002 to compete in Muay Thai amateur competitions. He returned again in 2004 as a professional fighter, competing until 2007 when he hung up his gloves due to a lack of fights as a heavyweight.

By then, 古萨里 had fallen in love with the country and its national sport. He has remained in 泰国 to this day, where he wears various hats in the industry as a Muay Thai goods wholesaler, referee, matchmaker, 体育馆老板 和发起人。

古萨里 quickly built up a reputation as the go-to guy in the industry with a well-connected network of gyms and fighters. In one of his proudest moments, he relished his pivotal role in convincing global Thai boxing icon, Buakaw Banchamek to take up the much-publicised “Fight of The Century”在2015年对阵易龙。

经过了三个月的劝说,泰国巨星同意面对“shaolin monk” in the ring. 古萨里 recounts,

“组织者一直在努力进行这场斗争。 Buakaw是位虔诚的佛教徒,他不会以不会和尚为由而接受这场斗争。我能够说服他,在2-3个月后,几乎每天都与他交谈。”

中国约有1亿观众收看了这场实况转播。布卡通过一致的决定获得了可喜的胜利。这是立足史上最大的搏斗之一,可惜,这是跆拳道运动的一次宝贵而罕见的成功。

在泰拳和跆拳道运动达到应有的国际知名度之前,还有一段路要走–状态与mma或拳击相当。

Taking a cue from professional wrestling giant WWE, 古萨里 believes that the recipe for success lies in dramatic storytelling. He wants fans to become personally invested in stories with characters they love and care about.

“职业摔跤提供了惊人的娱乐性,吸引了所有类型的观众,并且比真正的搏击运动赚更多的钱。我正在尝试以相同的方式发展泰拳运动。”

With his latest project Martialism Square (MAS), 古萨里 has taken a step towards realizing his vision. Held last November at the The Venetian in Macau, the new promotion raised many eyebrows with its headlining act featuring Yi Long against Korean giant Hong Man Choi.

古萨里 brought back no-holds-barred matchups reminiscent of UFC’在早期,体重训练课被抛到了窗外。在5’9” vs 7’3”,David vs Goliath的视觉吸引力再明显不过了。

马萨诸塞州’独特的格式要求每回合在9分钟的比赛中进行比赛,只有淘汰赛才能获胜。那里’是一名裁判,但没有裁判为比赛打分。您要么以KO获胜,要么以平局告终。它既残酷又有趣。

The debut show received mixed reactions but it certainly caught the attention of the fight community worldwide. 马萨诸塞州 has been picked up 通过 Fox Sports Asia and 古萨里 is already working on the follow-up show. A much-rumored million dollar clash between Buakaw and Yodsanklai could also finally see light sometime in the near future on 马萨诸塞州. Fingers crossed.

There is no stopping 古萨里 who is intent on making Muay Thai a sport as successful as WWE and UFC. Taking inspiration from concepts of filmmaking, he discourses,

“你需要一个好作家。没有优秀的作家,您将无法创造任何原创作品。然后,您还需要导演来主持演出。发起人和媒人负责铸造。有了合适的制作团队,活动就可以变得生动起来。”

古萨里’他的努力可能没有十亿美元的资金支持,但他有想法,经验,出色的网络技能和对这项运动的真正热情。越来越需要跟上搏击比赛不断变化的偏好。借助精心设计的地块和合适的生产团队,也许有一天,泰拳或跆拳道运动可能会在世界范围内享有应有的声誉。
