EDDIE FARRELL CALLS OUT FORMER TRAINING PARTNER THE LETHWEI CHAMP DAVE LEDUC
Eddie “Fighting” Farrell does not need much introduction as he continues to build his name and reputation as being one of the toughest guys in Muay Thai, Eddie and his Wife Brooke have dedicated their life to the Art of the 8 limbs, however Eddie is no stranger to fighting in the Art of the 9 Limbs … Lethwei and with talks of him heading over to the UK to compete in the ever growing BKB (bare knuckle boxing scene) Eddie is sure to continue to make his name known.
Siam Boxing had the pleasure to fire a few questions to Eddie.
Hi Eddie for the people that do not know you can you tell us a little about yourself?
My Wife Brooke and I moved to Thailand to pursue full-time fighting without the struggles of a day job, it has been a hard transition but we are finally seeing success and getting bigger fights.
What is your most Memorable Fight?
My most memorable fight so far has been the fight with Toby Smith, he is a fighter i have really looked up to and i am a fan of his fighting style. I hope to get that rematch one day!
Since you have competed in both Muay Thai and Lethwei how do you feel the skill level compares?
The Skill level in Muay Thai is much much higher than Lethwei but the brute force and damage caused as well as the heart needed in Lethwei evens the playing field and this is where a lot of the technical Muay Thai fighters struggle with handling that type of damage.
If you could fight anyone who would you like to fight and how do you see the fight going?
I am aiming for another Lethwei fight and i am all for challenge of fighting the champ i want to make 2019 a great year and collect some belts, there are not any opponents left so i will go for the champ… my former gym partner Dave Leduc!
