Retired adult film star Nong Natt will trade in her scantily clad outfits for a pair of 10-ounce gloves as she makes her combat sports debut on May 12.
Nong, whose real name is Kesarin Chaichalermpol, will compete in the art of eight limbs for the very first time as she takes on Muay Thai veteran Pareploy Saeaia.
With more than 1.4 million followers on Instagram, fans of both Muay Thai and adult entertainment will undoubtedly have their eyes locked on her eagerly-anticipated debut next month. To Nong Natt’s credit, she is will be jumping directly into the fire as she squares off with Pareploy, a 50-fight veteran with an impressive 40 career wins.
Pareploy previously competed under the monikers Kwa Tonsung and Pareploy Mor Krungthep Thon, the latter paying homage to her alma mater of Bangkokthonburi University.
Nong Natt Was Inspired to Compete by a Current ONE World Champion
Nong Natt revealed in a translated post on social media that her motivation to step inside the ring came from none other than reigning ONE featherweight Muay Thai world champion Tawanchai P.K. Saenchai.
“When Tawan Chai, the world champion said that I was fitter than him. I don’t believe that I am fitter. Do you want Chai to train with me? 😂 Tomorrow, we will return to the boxing arena. After the boxing match in June. That time, I didn’t go back to touch again. Today, let me go to practice Full body first. 😅”
